2.
The divine name of the leader of the ancient '''Greek''' pantheon; '''Not''' preserved by Roman Catholicism in the "Latin-derived bastardizations" of the Hebrew name Yeshua, and not adopted at all by Christianity.

The Hispanic pronunciation of Jesus is "hay-soos", because that is exactly how it looks to someone who speaks spanish.

Jesus in English is pronounced phonetically as well, which is why we say "jee-zuss", and any idiot who thinks the French ''je'' is pronounced "jee" needs to go back to high school.
In Greece they spell Zeus, ''Dias''

3.
A "fearsome critter]" reputed to live in Michigan. Supposedly, it is a hairy frog which has large webs between its arms and legs, allowing it to glide like a flying squirrel. It enjoys sub-zero temperatures, and during the summer it migrates to the north pole to keep cool.
Woah! Look! That smeet frog is even wierder than that fur-bearing trout] we saw earlier!

5.
A very old system of measurement which is used by Britain and the U.S.
These are the basic and not so basic measurements of length in order.

barleycorn (570,240 in a lea.)
inch (3 bc.)
hand (4 in.)
foot (3 hd.)
yard (3 ft.)
fathom (2 yrd.)
furlong (110 fm.)
mile (16 fur.)
league (3 mi)

Some people insist that a rod (don't let your mind stray) is part of the standard, but, since it doesn't multiply like the others (a rod is 16.5 feet), I wouldn't include it.
Americans and Brits use the standard system because we want to be different from the rest of the world — were not some sort of brain-washed, fluoride-addicted zombie — we are indies! (My apologies to anyone who has no idea what I just wrote)
