    Exclamation Olympic torch started in NAZI Germany!

    Torch relay's Nazi origins aren't widely known - Yahoo! Sports



    Now this I did not know. It was actually NAZI Germany that started the relay and running of the Olympic torch by lighting a torch from Greece and taking it to the host country! They did it as a form of propaganda for the NAZI ideas to show the world that "they are not bad" for the 1936 berlin games.

    & here I though it meant other things and off course I grew up hearing abc/nbc tell me the WRONG THING!

    So who knew?

    Another interesting fact from that Olympics is that the US humiliated Hitler by sending an untermesch to the Olympics who defeated Germany's (and the rest of the worlds) best runners. That was Jesse Owens. A black man.

    Man, if I wanted to read a book, my door wouldn't stay open. Hitler was also nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize (though of course he didn't win), so the stupid there goes back way farther from 2009 than you might think.

    Not really. They are fully of all these weird lines and stuff. Occasionally they have pictures that are cool.
