So all you do is post a random fact about anything in the big wide world tongue.gif

When played in reverse, the song "another one bites the dust" in the chorus, says "it's fun to smoke marajuanna, and it is even proven when said on your own. I wanted to see if it worked on me, so I went to voice recorder on the computer, spoke the words "another one bites the dust, etc." and when put into reverse, a few words sound jumbled, but the "smoke-" part is very clear to the ears. *nods approvingly* I have plenty more reverse-speech-things too. lol. *loves subliminal messages*

makes you wonder.. *oooooo*..*continues to make ghost like noises while she backs away*

The longest recorded flight of a domestic chicken is 13 seconds.

The hearts of many mammals (such as us!) beat approximately 3 billion times during their owner's lifetime.

Until the 16th century, carrots were black, green, red and purple - until a Dutch horticulturist discovered some mutant yellow seeds that produced a freaky orange color that caught on big, worldwide!!

People say "Bless you" when you sneeze because in the Dark Ages, it was thought that when you sneezed, a brief opportunity for devils to enter your mouth was created.

When you sneeze, your heart stops for a tiny fraction of a second.

A pregnant goldfish is called a twit.

Rats and horses can't vomit.

For every two hours you sleep beyond the reccommended eight per day, the mortality rate (chance of dying sooner)increases 20%. Sweet dreams. happy.gif

A shark can detect one part of blood in 100 million parts of water. I have a question, WHO THE HELL TESTED THIS THERY?!

The temperature in eastern Siberia can get so cold that the moisture in a person's breath can freeze in the air and fall to the ground. Fuck snowball fights! You can breath and make ice balls!

Up to 150 tons of meteorite fragments slam into Earth every year, so what makes a 'shooting star' so special?

Rain contains vitamin B-12. (a good thing to know if you are a strict vegetarian!) But because of the earth’s circulation of water, the rain today could have been dinosaur piss a long time ago. Think of that when you catch a snowflake in you mouth!

I almost always get a headache before a thunderstorm. Thats a fact right there.

It has been scientifically proven that orange is NOT red. happy.gif

It is impossible for a male to touch his shoulder with his wrist... both of them on the same arm. tongue.gif

In Leonardo's painting "The Last Supper" there are more hands than there should be, according to the number of people around the table.

In the painting "The Last Supper" the arm of the 4th man on the left is oriented in a near vertical position (170 degrees) with the elbow raised as he leans forward to appear to whisper to the beloved apostle. In such a position it is not possible for the hand to be oriented with the palm facing the viewer with the fingers pointed directly to the left side of the painting. If the hand were on the hip as many claim, you would see the knucles from the front with the thumb oriented downward, not the palm and heel of the thumb. If the hand is on the hip and turned to the rear, the orientation would be similar, however the hand would be highly deformed in appearance and mostly, if not completely, hidden behind the arm. It is possible to reproduce the hand position on the hip, however when doing so the forearm has to be at an angle of greater than 180 degrees or else the wrist is too twisted. If you can reproduce such a pose, send me a photo of it laugh.gif

Don't heat or freeze water in plastic bottles. It releases stuff from the plastic that is very bad for you health. Lots of stuff in our society is bad for your health. Drink water from glass bottles.

Some large percentage of the weight of your pillow (I forget the exact percent, but I think it's more than 50%) is all dustmites. Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. By the way, that saying was started when there were real bed bugs that would bite you sometimes O_o

The correct answer (I made it up, my opinion, it seems right) to "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?" is "A woodchuck would chuck how ever much a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood."

Chaos Theory - The theory that within every human being is the potential to drive the entire world into chaos.
