    2. Several important ancient historians claimed that the ancient Greeks' most profound philosophical thought (e.g., Plato) actually originated with Moses and the ancient Israelites.

    Many others.

    We elected a president, and a pretty good one at that, who couldn't get it up due to complications from 19th century surgery to his junk region.

    A woman ran the federal government for most of 1920.

    Two of the stars of running man served as governor of a us state. One of the others hosted the family feud and another was the an nfl record holder for a while. That opera guy eventually served on the board of directors at Microsoft, in the mid 90s.
