20. Gold and silver top the list of the most ductile metals (ability to be drawn into a thin wire without breaking) and the most malleable metals (ability to be compressed into a thin sheet. Lead is probably number three for malleable metals, which is why it blinded so many connoisseurs of moonshine when compressed into leaky plumbing joints. But lead cannot be drawn into a wire, because it has low ductility...ever hear of a lead wire? Another expensive metal leads the candidates for the #3 spot for ductility, platinum. You can see why ductile metals are in such high demand for jewelry and, now, miniaturized electronics.

14. Whitewater was a real estate development in Arkansas. There was evidence that some of the money being raised for the project was actually diverted, illegally, leading to the projects' failure. I believe the Clintons were investors who may have benefited from the diverted funds. Of course, since Bill was governor, and Hillary was an attorney for a prominent law firm in the state, there was considerable speculation that lax regulatory enforcement and shady legal misdirection helped enable the illegal diversion of funds.
16. Nasty typhoon that just blew through the island chain, and southern Japan.
19. Sure sounds like something Emily Dickinson would write.

14; What the bear said, with the addendum that the case was very thoroughly investigated, and no fault was ever attached to Hillary.

25..Well, geordi, you do shine on process of elimination.

17..Now the odd thing is no modern got the chance drink in said statue. But the Parthenon hasn't gone anywhere, so which was his greatest?
Now sages will long debate this, in between bursts about the Yankees/Red Sox.

Well, there was a statue of Athena in the Parthenon. I saw it once...well, in the Parthenon lite, in Nashville. Did he do that one too?
