    I just took a black light out to the cat box. Those creatures basically live in there 24/7 in the winter, and I didn't see any glowing spots :doah:

    I was rather dissapointed :D

    I can't even say that in my head. :haha:

    The QE2 makes transatlantic crossings that are 3471 miles. That means that it burns 36,653,760 gallons of diesel. There's the reason for our high fuel costs. :whistle:

    Nope

    That figure caught me as a little high. And being as bored as I am, I did a little research. A gallon of diesel fuel weighs about 7 pounds. Mulitply that by spearchucker's figure of 36,653,760 gallons, and you find that all that fuel weighs 256,576,320 lbs.

    Then we consider that the QE2 displaces 70,327 gross tonnes, which converts to 157,510,080 lbs. Assuming that spearchucker's math is correct and the conversion factors I found were correct, either the QE2 is a little more efficient than that, or she has to make a fuel stop somewhere along the way.

    So in conclusion, I think that there is a mystery island that only the captain and crew of the QE2 know about somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic. Since no one else knows about it, I bet it hides beneath the waves until the captain of the QE2 pulls out his key fob and pushes the correct button.

    Oh, and it's crewed by oompa-loompas.



    Shouldn't I be cutting the grass or something? :doah:

    With, technically, the exception of North and South America. All others are single words naming the continent. :p:

    I'm willing to bet that most of those are incorrect. The quack is said not to echo because the quack itself reverberates... that's the noise, so it doesn't seem like it echos... but it does. As far as the cruiseliner... that CAN'T be right...

    My wife is a nurse at a pediatrics office - she's thinking this is false and is looking into it...


    So does dogs' urine. And most other animals, too.

    So does semen.
    Wanna gross yourself out? Take a blacklight to the next hotel you go to. Kill the room lights, fire up the blacklight, and look for the glowing spots. Check the bed too! You may never want to sleep away from home again...
