    "The term bangs originally referred to a hair cut bang-off (straight across at the front), although the term is now applied to diverse forms of hair styling. It is probably related to bang-tail, a term still used for the practice of cutting horses' tails straight across.". "Bangs, also called a fringe outside of North America".

    A Mexican town had frogs that fell from the sky in 1997. Maybe the whole it's raining cats and dogs thing, should be changed to frogs! :D Frognado anyone??:p
