    For those of you who just thought you knew everything, here's a re-fresher course...............




    Now you know everything!!!

    The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as a substitute for bloodplasma.

    No piece of paper can be folded in half more than seven (7) times.

    Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes.

    You burn more calories sleeping than you do

    watching television.

    Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty (50) years of age or

    older.

    The first product to have a bar code was Wrigley's gum.

    The king of hearts is the only king without a mustache.

    American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by

    eliminating one (1) olive from each salad served in first-class.

    Venusis the only planet that rotates clockwise.

    Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking

    you up in the morning.

    Most dust particles in your house are made from dead skin.

    (No wonder my house is so DUSTY! LOL!)

    The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer.

    So did the first "MarlboroMan."

    Walt Disney was afraid of mice.

    Pearls melt in vinegar.

    The three most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro,

    Coca Cola, and Budweiser, in that order.

    It is possible to lead a cow upstairs...but not downstairs.

    A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

    Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least six (6) feet

    away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the

    flush. (I keep my toothbrush in the living room now!)

    Richard Millhouse Nixon was the first U.S. president whose name

    contains all the letters from the word "criminal." The second?

    William Jefferson Clinton.

    (Please don't tell me you're SURPRISED!?!!)

    And the best for last.....

    Turtles can breathe through their butts. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    (I know some people like that; don't YOU?)

    Now you knoweverythingthere is to know. Of importance that is.

    I saw the one about the duck quack and I think they found that there was a slight echo but the way a quack sounds covers it up.. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif..something like that. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] And they disproved the second one as well. They showed that even a tooth brush in a different room collected about the same amount of airborne crap(literally) that one stored on top of the toilet did.
