    Default Strange things....

    I'm note sure if all these are true or not, but what the heck.....

    1. A rat can last longer without water than a camel.

    2. Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks
    or it will digest itself.

    3. The dot over the letter "i" is called a tittle.

    4. A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and
    down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top.

    5. A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate.

    6. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.

    7. A 2 X 4 is really 1-1/2" by 3-1/2".

    8. During the chariot scene in "Ben Hur," a small red car can be seen
    in the distance (and Heston's wearing a watch).

    9. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily!
    (That explains a few mysteries....)

    10. Sherlock Holmes NEVER said, "Elementary, my dear Watson."

    11. Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War
    II were made of wood.

    12. The number of possible ways of playing the first four moves per
    side in a game of chess is 318,979,564,000.

    13. There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with orange,
    purple and silver.

    14. Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space
    because passing wind in a spacesuit damages them.

    15. The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War II
    killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.

    16. If one places a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will
    instantly go mad and sting itself to death. (Who was the sadist who
    discovered this??)

    17. Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to s-l-o-w film down
    so you could see his moves. That's the opposite of the norm.

    18. The first CD pressed in the US was Bruce Springsteen's "Born in
    the USA."

    19. The original name for butterfly was flutterby.

    20. The phrase "rule of thumb" is der ived from an old English law
    which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider
    than your thumb.

    21. The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player
    for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was
    Victrola, so they called themselves Motorola.

    22. Roses may be red, but violets are indeed violet.

    23. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot
    sink into quicksand.

    24. Celery has negative calories. It takes more calories to eat a
    piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with.

    25. Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin
    look-alike contest.

    26. An old law in Bellingham, Washington, made it illegal for a woman
    to take more than three steps backwards while dancing!

    27. The Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book
    most often stolen from public libraries.

    28. The glue on Israeli postage is certified kosher.

    29. Bats always turn left when exiting a cave!

    Wow, how very interesting. Never gave much thought to those. It's always good to learn new things/facts.

    I don't think #9 happens too much in the US. I know here in OH they place identification bands on the wrist and an alarm on the leg ID band right after they're born. But, yeah, that's pretty scary to think about. Kids are hard enough to raise, let alone that they are someone elses little angel.

    Scorpions cannot actually sting themselves to death - they are immune to their own venom. I did a report on them when I was in school and I remember reading this. The assertion it debunked was that in a fire a scorpion would sting itself to death.

    The venom probably isn't what kills them. It's the repeated stab wounds that probably kills them.
