Known for flexibility in a range of tactical situations and the ability to have different ways of reaching the enemy at range, Madonna has utilised guitars, drums, and on one occasion a cowbell as the situation demanded

What is now Bhutan was long ago discovered by Norse explorers. Most of their mythology was inspired by what they found there.

For example Asgard is supposed to be surrounded by a vast wall. This comes from Bhutan being entirely landlocked. Not just by land, of course, but also actual  mountains. Nature's walls.
 
"Asgard mountain" is a fairly obvious anagram of "drags a mountain". This was an attempt by the explorers to poetically describe Bhutan's majesty. After all since she absorbs the Eastern edge of the Himalayas, you could imagine that the country is attempting to drag them Eastwards into the sea. For what purpose? That remains a mystery only those Norse explorers could tell us.

Google is a misspelling of Googol. Nile is one letter from being nine, and must thus be a misspelling of it. They are both therefore numbers.

x = y.
Then x2 = xy.
Subtract the same thing from both sides:
x2 - y2 = xy - y2.
Dividing by (x-y), obtain
x + y = y.
Since x = y, we see that
2 y = y.
Thus 2 = 1, since we started with y nonzero.
Subtracting 1 from both sides,
1 = 0.

As 1 = 0, all numbers are the same, since any number can be made by adding up enough ones, and they're all equal to 0 anyway.

Therefore a googol equals nine and google is the nile.

as anyone who has watched the film National Treasure will be well aware, Thomas Jefferson was a Templar Knight. As anyone who has read Thomas Jefferson's wikipedia page is aware, Thomas Jefferson was not a Templar Knight.
Since the film National Treasure and wikipedia are both widely known to be unreliable sources of information, it is therefore impossible to casually observe whether or not Thomas Jefferson was a Templar Knight. Untill it becomes possible to casually observe this, Thomas Jefferson must be considered to be simultaneously both a Templar Knight and Not a Templar Knight. Therefore, Thomas Jefferson is by a process of logical deduction actually Schrodinger's cat. If a cat can be a Templar Knight, it stands to reason that a cow can also be a Templar Knight. Therefore, cows are Templar Knights.

Prove that Louis the Fourteenth of France was an early prop aircraft.

The first clues that Louis the fourteenth was a prop plane can be found in his title of "sun king", which historians would later discover was given due to his tendancy to roam around in the sky, close to the sun.

This suspicion grew after one of his many pushes to broaden the empire of France. He sent forces to America to take land from the Native American people. He would settle French nationals there and re-name it "Louisiana" after himself.
Many wonder how they got there - and concluded that he must have flown them there on his back, using his prop technology as an advantage over sluggish sea ships. The fact that this must have been true can be seen to this day in Louisiana, where the people still have a fascination with prop planes like Louis. Probably the most obvious manifestation of this was the 1910 New Orleans Aviation Tournament where so called "birdmen" were invited to the city to show off their prop planes and to do king Louis XIV impressions.

The king was highly protective over his groundbreaking abilities as a prop plane. He jealously expunged anything which could threaten that position. It was for this reason that he ordered the destruction of Protestant churches, and the expulsion of Protestant clergy because he thought that the word "protestant" sounded a little too similar to propeller.
Despite this he is remembered for having ushered in a golden age of art and literature, and for demonstrating that a wing shaped propeller would be far more efficient that screw design propellers that had been known for centuries, and used in tools and boats.

These days his status as one of the most important early prop planes is beyond refute. However it would only be after his lengthy 72 year reign that engineers would truly unlock the efficiency of the propeller to over 90%, adding extra propellers and replacing the round tip blades with wider rectangular ones. Even so it is thought that Louis managed to get an impressive 82% efficiency from his propellers, and an airspeed of 111 mph. This would only later be bested by the Sopwith Dragon, built in 1918 by the RAF and was able to achieve a top speed of a whopping 150 mph.

Prove that Russia is the band: Queen

Fundamentally, what is a country? Here we answer that a country is no more and no less than its national character, its philosophical position and state in the world: for the land areas of countries change, people come and go, and therefore it is this fundamental question of character to which we must turn. So, what is Russia? Russia is Russia's character.

Therefore, we must see if we can create a set of maxims that sum up elements of the Russian lifestyle.

First, Russia is a country known to be entirely populated by secret agents, double agents, the mafia, supermodels, Orthodox priests, accordion players, accordions that have eaten their players to gain sapience, headscarf wearing grandmothers, and bears on unicycles. It is, in short, an inexplicable place. This we will sum up with the maxim, "A Kind of Magic".
Second, Russia is a greatly expansionist nation that sees itself as holding dominion over the world. This we will sum up with the maxim, "I Want It All."
Third, Russia operates by the suppression of its populace by authoritarian rulers. This we will sum up with the maxim, "Under Pressure".
Fourth, Russia is brutal in the deposition of leaders and subjects alike in order to allow new ones to take their place. This we will sum up with the maxim, "Another one Bites the Dust".
Fifth, Russia believes in its own greatness above all else. This we will sum up with the maxim "We Are The Champions".
Sixth and last, it is well known that Russians drink themselves to death. This we will sum up with the maxim, "Who wants to live forever?"

I have therefore across these six points demonstrated the fundamental character of Russia to be identical to a Queen set-list, which in turn is an indication of the fundamental character of Queen, who for these purposes we may model as being exactly the same as a polity. Indeed, my friends, exactly the same as a specific polity, for there can be no doubt in the reader's mind that Queen IS Russia, in the truest possible of senses.



Genuine disclaimer: the above does not represent in any way the genuine viewpoints of its author. For one thing, Russia could actually do with more accordions.

The most notable aspect of the Council of Nicaea is the conspiracy theories.
Therefore, when discussing the Council of Nicaea, I am formally entitled under international law to use the logic of conspiracy theories.
*clears throat*
 "I don't have to prove that the Council of Nicaea was a pasta salad. you can't prove it wasnt, and that means it was, and you're just too brainwashed by the toxins the FBI put in the water to believe!!!!"
