They take one bag with them. How many shells can they put in the empty bag? 1. After that the bag is no longer empty. 4.) Before Sir Rihard Burton attempted to discover the source of the Nile, which was the world's longest river? The Amazon, untraced, but still the longest. 5.) what does a zamboni do during half-time in a game of ice hockey? It melts the top layer of ice and lets it refreeze as a smoother flatter surface. The Zamboni ice resurfacer is named after it's inventor Frank Joseph Zamboni, Jr. we'll leave it at that for now

 perfectgeneral       11/5/2007 5:34:42 PM A bit controversial this one but...'STORY/ATMOSPHERE: Well, it's only Ice Hockey, so there's no real story, but the game does have some cute atmosphere. I like how the zambonis come out at half-time to clean the rink, although after seeing it a few dozen times, I wish there was a way to skip it. The players getting into fights is always good for a laugh. It definitely has the feeling of being at a "kids'" hockey game, because the players are so small and there are no NHL licenses.'http://www.flyingomelette.com/reviews/nes/icehockey.htmlYou didn't say NHL Ice Hockey!
