Technically (and legally), WWII didn't completely end until 1958, when Andorra, which was forgotten on the Treaty of Versailles, officially made peace with Germany.

Persia was renamed to Iran, meaning "Land of Aryans" as a pro-Nazi gesture.

Leap back in time a little further...
Originally a group of nomadic tribes, the Aryans were part of a great migratory movement that spread in successive waves from S Russia and Turkistan during the 2d millennium B.C.

Throughout Mesopotamia and Asia Minor, literate urban centers fell to their warrior bands. Archaeological evidence corroborates the text of the Veda by placing the invasion of India by the Aryans at c.1500 B.C

The Aryans were in Iran long before any Nazis came into existence.

1. The rising number of men arrested for sexual relations with girls under 16 has resulted in the the Sri Lankan Cabinet to lower the age of consent to 13;

2. A Russian supply ship, the Akademik Fyodorov sailed to the North Pole unaided by an icebreaker in August 2005. This is the first time in recorded history that an ordinary ship has made it to the North Pole;

3. California's San Joaquin Valley is the third smoggiest place in America, thanks to cows. The cows' flatulence and burping produce 50,000,000 pounds of organic compounds each year. This is far more than the area's cars produce;

4. In Gevas, Turkey, over 1,500 sheep jumped off a cliff. Only 450 died, however, as the last thousand or so fell on a soft billowy white pile of other sheep;

5. A Nigerian woman was caught entering the UK with 104 kg of snails in her baggage;

6. Malawi's president Bingu wa Mutharika has moved out of his 300-bedroom mansion, claiming it is haunted by ghosts

7. Malawi's president Bingu wa Mutharika ordered the arrest of reporters who revealed that he was afraid of ghosts;

8. U.S. President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld each had a slime-mould beetle named in their honor in early 2005;

9. A person will create enough saliva to fill two average size swimming pools during his lifetime;

And Finally...................

10. The World Health Organization says that the nuclear accident at Chernobyl in 1986 was not the catastrophe it was expected to be. At the time 600,000 people were exposed to radiation. Experts predicted that 4,000 would eventually die from the effects. As of 2005, less than 50 people have died from these causes, and most of those were plant workers who died in the first few months after the accident. The expected surge in birth defects also did not happen.

Here is a couple for you....

*In 1970, Russel T. Tansie, an Arizona lawyer filed a $100,000 damage lawsuit against God. The suit was filed on behalf of Mr. Tansie's secretary, Betty Penrose, who accused God of negligence in His power over the weather when He allowed a lightning bolt to strike her home. Ms. Penrose won the case when the defendant failed to appear in court. Whether or not she collected has not been recorded.

*A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense: "My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offense committed by his limb." "Well put," the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses." The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.

*Spiral staircases in medieval castles are running clockwise. This is because all knights used to be right-handed. When the intruding army would climb the stairs they would not be able to use their right hand which was holding the sword because of the difficulties of climbing the stairs. Left-handed knights would have had no troubles, except left-handed people could never become knights because it was assumed that they were descendants of the devil.

Sports Illustrated magazine allows subscribers to opt out of receiving the famous swimsuit issue each year. Fewer than 1% choose this option.

More people study English in China than speak it in the United States of America (300 million).

I like this one....

The day after President George W. Bush was reelected, Canada's main immigration website had 115,000 visitors. Before Bush's re-election, this site averaged about 20,000 visitors each day.

Sounds like a stretch to me. The last of the implements of surrender/peace were concluded in 1958. If you go by the breakup of Germany as the continuation of WWII, then WWI is still on because the Ottoman Empire is still split up.

[edit on 5-1-2006 by UK Wizard]

I'm aware of the historical Aryans, but you miss my point. Aryans came into vogue in Europe when it was realized that Sanskrit was from the same linguistic family as European languages- the discovery of Indo-European language relations was a real problem, but the Aryans were a convenient answer.

The Aryans were ficticiously portrayed as a lost master race of white people who conquered India long before modern empires, thus explaining the linguistic similarities and simultaneously reaffirming the misguided belief in the superiority of whites.

Iran had a perfectly legitimate claim to the name Iran since both the original language and religion of the area (Zoroastrianism and Avestan) were Aryan influenced, and Eratosthenes did make mention of the term Iran. However it wasn't until 1935 that Reza Shah Pahlavi asked other nations to formally refer to Persia as Iran, although I concede that the term was hardly unused within Iran prior to that. Later, Britain and the USSR had to invade Iran and force Reza to abdicate because he wouldn't let them station troops there and it was believed that he was about to ally with the Nazis.
