Everything i found says that flavors such as <insert flavor> came soon after the invention of the chip, but cannot specify who and when.

This is the info I found on the origin of the chip and chip flavoring. Tayto seems to be a big contributor. But not the inventor of sour cream and onion chips

Boulder City's claim to fame, aside from being where Desi Arnaz Jr. lives, is that it was the town that housed the workers who built Hoover Dam during the Great Depression. It's other claim to fame: It's the only town in the immediate Las Vegas area that was not built by organized crime interests or developers. Oh yeah, it's also the only town in Nevada to outlaw gambling. (http://www.enterprisenewspapers.com/archive/2003/6/6/20036516502789.cfm)

Hmmm, never heard of a President O'Neill, so I'm gonna say no. Here's a hint for ya, the heads of our three branches of federal government are Speaker of the House, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and President of the United States. You're right about W, though, that drunk driving mo fo.

Who said:

-" They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

-"Cogito ergo sum" ( and what does it mean )

-"You see things that were and ask,'Why?' I dream of things
that never were and ask, 'Why not?' "

-" It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points
out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of
deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the
man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred
by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly
; who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and
spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows
in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at
worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly;
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid
souls who know neither victory or defeat. "
