I thought it would be fun for everyone to post any random facts they know (or something you Googled or whatever). It can be about anything as long as it's HP-appropriate. One player posts one fact. I'll start:


The Icelandic word for computer is tölva. It was coined in the '60s and is a combination of the words tala (to count) and völva (prophetess).

If an Icelandic horse is exported from Iceland, it is never allowed to return. The reason for this is to keep the native stock healthy by keeping foreign illness and disease out of the country.

Did you know? The first Draft Breed to ever come to the Americas was the Percheron in 1839. Their purpose was, originally, to be used as freight and farm horses!

Did you know? Holsteiners were not originally a Sporthorse! They were heavy-draft breeds used as German Marsh horses as far back as 450 A.D. and did not become the breed we know until the 1960's!
