1). Chad is a person.
2) Chad is a country.
3) Wouldn’t it be neat to have a country named about yourself? Consider naming your next child Belgium.

8) There’s a famous Isaac Asimov story where a man goes back in time to shoot a dinosaur. He strays off the marked path and steps on a butterfly. He returns to his own time to find that the presidential election was changed, just like in tidbit 4).
9) A lot of people spoke out against hanging chads, including many, many Chads.
