In the 1400's a law was set forth that a man was not allowed to beat
his wife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have "the rule
of thumb".

Many years ago in Scotland, a new game was invented. It was ruled
"Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden"...and thus the word GOLF entered
into the English language.


The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV was Fred
and Wilma Flintstone


Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury.


Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.


Coca-Cola was originally green.


It is impossible to lick your elbow.


The average number of people airborne over the US any given hour:
61,000


Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.


The first novel ever written on a typewriter: Tom Sawyer.


Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king in
history:

Spades - King David


Hearts - Charlemagne


Clubs -Alexander, the Great


Diamonds - Julius Caesar



111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321


If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in
the air, the person died in battle.

If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result
of wounds received in battle.

If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of
natural causes.


Q. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go
until you would find the letter "A"?

A. One thousand


Q. What do bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and
laser printers all have in common?

A. All invented by women.


Q. What is the only food that doesn't spoil?

A. Honey


In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes.
When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making
the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase......... "goodnight,
sleep tight."


It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a
month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law
with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their
calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which
we know today as the honeymoon.


In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts... So in old
England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them
"Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down." It's where we get the
phrase "mind your P's and Q's"


Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into
the rim, or handle, of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill,
they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle" is the
phrase inspired by this practice.


Don't delete this just because it looks weird. Believe it or not,

As far as licking the elbow goes, it can be done. I told an ex girlfriend it couldn't be done and she made it happen in front of a shitload of people at a party.

Hey, I can lick my elbow! Does it only count if I can lick the tip?

And it might sound crazy that 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321, but it's actually not that strange, when you think about it.

1 * 1 = 1
11 * 11 = 121
111 * 111 = 12,321
1111 * 1111 = 1,234,321

I believe that whales and dolphins are the only mammals with a bone in their penis. (Dumb random fact).

Last I heard, it was illegal to have an erection showing through clothes in 18 US states.

(Shit, I used to know a ton of useless stuff). [V]

It took chemist 40 tries to perfect the formula for water displacement. So the named it WD-40 (it's true)

Manhole covers are round because it's the only shape that won't fall in on it's self.

9x1=9
9x2=18, 1+8=9
9x3=27, 2+7=9
9x4=36, 3+6=9
9x5=45, 4+5=9
9x6=54, 5+4=9
9x7=63, 6+3=9
9x8=72, 7+2=9
9x9=81, 8+1=9
9x10=90, 9+0=0
9x11=99, 9+9=18 1+8=9
9x12=108, 1+0+8=9

Here's an easy way to remember anything multiplied by 9. We'll use 9x7 as an example. 9x7=63 Ok Now if you ad 6+3 you get 9. and if you notice the first number in the answer is 1 less than what you multiplied by(this doesn't always work out). Don't think it works beyond 9x12? Let's do 9x1257. 9x1257=11313, 1+1+3+1+3=9. Ok so lets get even more rediculous. 9x25478 just for shits and giggles. 9x25478=229302, 2+2+9+3+0+2=18, 1+8=9. Pick any number and try it.

This urban myth is all over and has caused the Guinness Book of Records to receive five emails a day from people claiming to be able to lick their elbows, thinking they are the first ones able to do so.

If a manhole was square, you could turn the corners so It would fall in the hole, thus leaving a death trap for bikers.

Ahh, right [:I]. Unless it was thick enough, I guess. I got caught on the wording, wondering how/why the square cover would buckle and not withstand the pressure of whatever.
