    Other things to ponder (non question)

    Inspired by the other thread. Here are some things to make you say "Hum, interesting" that are not questions.

    "I Am" is the shortest complete sentence in the english language.

    A ducks quack does not echo, and no one knows why.

    The airplane Buddy Holly died in was the "American Pie" (thus the name of the Don McLean song)

    Only 2 people signed the Declaration of Independance on July 4th, John Handcock & Charles THomson. Most of the rest signed on Aug. 2nd but the very last signature wasnt added intill 5 years later.

    An ostrich's eye is bigger then it's brain (I know people like that)

    Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenousley.

    If you have 3 quarters, 4 dimes, and 4 pennies you have $1.19. You also have the largest amount of money in coins without being able to make change for a dollar.

    No NFL team which plays it's home games in domed stadium has won a superbowl.

    If you put a rasin in a glass of champagne, it will bob from top to bottom of the glass.

    Snails can sleep for 3 years without eating.

    The fingerprints of Koala bears are virtually indistinguishable from thoes of humans, so much so that they could be confused at a crime scene. (lol. It wasn't me. the Koala bear did it.)

    Months that begins on Sunday will always have a "Friday the 13th"

    You can't lick your elbow.
    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

    This is no longer true as the St. Louis Rams played indoors the year they won Super Bowl XXXIV in 2000.

    On topic, there are more cars than people in Los Angeles.

    And many of those cars seem to find the road by themselves. Cars are not intelligent drivers.

    Mythbusters proved this to be an urban legend. Duck's quacks do echo.

    Actualy they were inconclusive. They could not find an echo and belived that the echo was mixing with the original quack, but they never prooved it.

    Greenland is actually icy while Iceland is actually green.

    Orange is the only word in the English language that nothing rhymes with.

    Abraham Lincoln's secretary advised him against going to the theatre. JFK's secretary advised him against going to Dallas. Abe's secretary was named Kennedy. JFK's secretary was named Lincoln. Both presidents were succeeded by a Vice President named Johnson.

    Rabbits cannot vomit.

    Dogs cannot sweat. That is why they pant.

    Silver does not rhyme with orange... nor anything else.

    That's nonsense. Read Snopes.com.

    This is just the same crap that AOL idiots have been CC:ing for time immemorial to every person who's ever been unfortunate enough to get on their mailing list.

    Reason for the Season? Tilt of the planet's axis. Oh, you meant the holiday season? That's easy - Feast of Saturnalia. Disagree? That's nice.

    OK. Sorry. I was told this as true. Thank you for setting me straight. (At least I got the part about the two Vice Presidents Johnson right. :o )

    (she has her own little spam folder in my e-mail, filled with "butt prints in the sand" crap )
