A sheet is a rope used to control the corner of a sail in nautical terms. If a square sail is normally tied down at each corner, having "three sheets to the wind" means the sail is only held on by one rope, and flailing around wildly.

Whenever I hear "three coins in the fountain" I think of the old Simpsons episode (one of the early seasons) where Homer is watching Wheel of Fortune and the contestant guesses "three loins in the fountain." :D

Malbaby, - Larry, Moe, and Curly weren't the only ones who played in the Three Stooges films. There were only three at a time, and Moe and Larry were always part of the threesome, but the third character changed. Moe's brother Shemp was in the group first, then he left and was replaced by their brother Curly, who left due to illness and Shemp came back. He died and Joe Palma took his place, then was replaced by Joe Besser. Besser was later replaced with Joe DeRita who was called "Curly Joe". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Three_Stooges

Nope, it's true. Matthew mentions the wise men / magi, in unknown quantity, bringing 3 gifts, which led to the assumption there were also three men. There are versions apparently, Wikipedia says: In Eastern Christianity, especially the Syriac churches, the Magi often number twelve.

And nowhere in the original Greek does the Bible call them either "kings" or "wise men". They were magi, or astrologers. After all, they sought Jesus as a result of their practice of divination based on the stars. Several Bible translations render the word as "astrologers", which, IMO, should be accepted.

Oh, and it wasn't God that provided that star, which led them first to Herod, who wanted to kill Jesus. The Mosaic Law forbade divination, magic-practicing, sorcery and the looking for omens, for example, in the stars. (Deuteronomy 18:10) The star was used by Satan in a failed attempt to endanger the life of Jesus while he was yet a helpless young child.

Walking in the direction of a star ≠ divination, magic-practising, sorcery, or the looking for omens. Bible ≠ a document that says anything about a star sent by Satan. Pedantics ≠ fun, the whole point of this website.

It's just a fictional story to begin with, so it can be interpreted any way that the reader wants. Just like any other work of fiction, it's up to the reader to use their imagination as to how everything works in the story.

Actually, "omega-3" describes a *structure* of a fatty acid -- an omega-3 fatty acid is one that has a double bond three carbon atoms from the aliphatic end of the chain. It is not the name of a fatty acid, as the question seems to imply. I'm not sure if there is a single fatty acid that is "everyone's" favorite -- α-Linolenic acid is one possible answer because it's omega-3 and essential for human health, but there will always be some joker who will tell you that his favorite fatty acid is caproic acid because it's smelly.

Agree it is not specifically spelled out in the Bible, but who said it was? In popular culture they are always depicted as three kings, three wise men, three Magi, whatever you want to call them. I've never seen a nativity scene or Christmas card which showed any other number.

I thought that everyone's favorite fatty acids was triglycerides as they have three fatty acids to them.
