speaking of crocodials...that if you put scotch tape around their mouth...they can't open it? their muscles are far too weak. LOL, its funny, but that's why you might see pictures of crocs sitting around with their mouths open. Its because if they do go after food, its easier to already have their mouths open, ready to snap closed.

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.

That if being only 99.9% correct was ok, 12 infants every day would be handed out to the wrong parents.

DID YOU KNOW...

Every episode of "Seinfeld" contains at least one Superman.

Hummingbirds can't walk.

June Foray, the voice of Talking Tina from the classic Twilight Zone episode "Living Doll", was also the voice of Rocky the talking squirrel from "Rocky & Bullwinkle".

The dunce cap of schoolhouse fame originates from a paper cone that was placed on the heads of accused witches during the Middle Ages.

When Joan of Arc was martyred, she was wearing one of them.

Despite the hump, a camel's spine is straight.

"Rhythm" and "syzygy" are the longest English words without vowels.

There is no mention of Adam and Eve eating an apple in the Bible.

In Corpus Christie, Texas, it is illegal to raise alligators in your home.

In Miami, it is forbidden to imitate an animal.

It is against the law to mispronounce the name of the State of Arkansas
in that State.


Look at the number four on a clock face that uses Roman numerals. If the clock is made correctly then the Roman numeral four is wrong. The standard and correct way to write the Roman numeral four is "IV," but the traditional way to show it on a clock face is "IIII." Legend has it that a clock was made for a British king. When he saw the clock he mis- informedly corrected the clock maker who re-did the clock face to show a "IIII" instead of an "IV" thus not risking offending the king. Other clock makers followed suit so as not to embarrass the king. Now it is the traditional way to make clocks.
