Did you know?

Music was invented in the 1930’s, but then outlawed in 1941.  Music was not heard by anyone again until 1954. 

Want to avoid getting stung by a bee?  hold your breath around them and blow out your cheeks.  This will close up your pores, and the stinger will not be able to penetrate a poreless skin.  That, or stay away from bees.

Spelunking is the most popular spectator sport in all of Europe.

On average, left handers live 42 years longer than their right handed counterparts. 

The world’s fastest swimmer is a Bessie, a two ton jersey cow in New Zealand who was clocked at swimming 23 miles per hour.  Look out, Michael Phelps!

Want to rid your house of cockroaches?  Turn on every ceiling fan in every room.  It is widely known that cockroaches simply cannot stand cold weather.  If you do not have ceiling fans, then simply install them, or get an oscillating fan for each room.  Yes, this includes kitchens, garages and bathrooms. 

Want to know the secret to defeating bullies at school?  It’s easy.  Each bully has a sensitive pressure point right where their two legs meet, a little below their waist.  Kick them really hard there, and they will drop like a rock. 

Inlaws and grimacing are illegal in most african tribes.

Why birds really fly south for the winter

Filed under: Short & Sweet — admin @ 6:20 am

It has long been noted that birds fly south for the winter because of the warmer weather. In actuality, they fly down for two reasons:

1) The typical bird’s diet consists of grub worms and leafy shrubbery. Both of which die out at the close of Autumn quickly in the North. The south has much more plentiful grubbery and shrubbery during this time.

2) The hemisphere weather shift at the beginning of the winter solstice makes it significantly easier to fly in a souther direction, thanks to the cold currents being pushed down from the North. It has not always been this way, however. Global warming is to thank for this as well. Many scientists have been able to pin point the date to 1978, the year that Al Gore invented the internet.
