Biggest battle ever

The biggest battle that ever, was the Battle of Kursk in World War II, between the Soviet Union and Germany. This battle was the turning point in World War II and marked the fall of Germany in the east. Aalso this is the biggest tank and airplane battle ever.

Battlefield was as big as half of England. The Soviets employed about one million women to dig more than a thousand kilometers of channels, to prevent the German blitzkrieg attack, so their tanks could stuck in these channels and thus were disabled for battle.

On one side of the mighty German Sixth Army, which numbered: 435,000 men, 3155 tanks, 9,966 guns and mortars, 2110 aircraft. On the other side powerful Soviet Army which numbered: 1.2 million men, 3275 tanks, 25.013 guns and mortars, 2792 aircraft.

This was also one of the most bloody battles in history. The Germans lost 170,000 men, 720 tanks, 681 aircraft. While the Soviets had suffered far greater losses, they lost 863,000 men, 6.064 tanks and assault guns, 1.626-4.209 Aircraft, 5.244 guns.

This is the biggest battle that ever happened, I hope that something like this will never happen again. All people who participated in this battle are heroes, all of them participated in a mythical battle that will retail for centuries, and we can only assume how they felt in the real hell on earth.

See with no land

The Sargasso Sea is a region in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by ocean currents, and this is the only sea that has no coast. It is bounded on the west by the Gulf Stream, on the north, by the North Atlantic Current, on the east, by the Canary Current, and on the south, by the North Atlantic Equatorial Current. This system of currents forms the North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre.

The Sargasso Sea is roughly 700 statute miles wide and 2,000 statute miles long (1,100 km wide and 3,200 km long). It stretches from roughly 70 degrees west to 40 degrees west, and from 25 degrees north to 35 degrees north. Bermuda is near the western fringes of the sea. The Sargasso Sea is the only "sea" without shores. The ocean water in the Sargasso Sea is distinctive for its deep blue color and exceptional clarity, with underwater visibility of up to 200 feet (61 m).

So todays Romanians are descendants of those Romans.

Biggest speeding ticked ever issued

The Koenigsegg CC is attributed with being awarded the fastest ever speeding ticket, 242mph (387 kmh) in Texas, USA, during the Gumball 3000 rally race of 2003. The driver even talks his way out of a ticket! It could just be the movie magic since getting a 242 mph (387 kmh) ticket is not something that Koenigsegg advertises on its website, but if you and I believe it then that's all that matters.
