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. (I would have to disagree with this one, because I know someone who can actually do it!! )


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 bullet-proof 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.

One I heard, but have no confirmed.....
Men are generally better knowing which way is North because they have more iron in their system.

The one about the Flinstones isn't true.. there was a show in 1947 that showed a couple in bed.

And I'm skeptical about the GOLF one.

That whistling one wouldn't work for me anyway, I can't whistle.

and, only about .02% of the population can lick their elbow. and you can't learn to do it either, it's something to do with the structure in your neck and shoulder.

So that's where Ps and Qs comes from!
I've always wondered that. It has never made sense to me.

Oh, and I didn't try to lick my elbow.
But only because that wasn't the first time reading that [false] fact.

a penny will clean because coke has so much acidic shit in it,
that it might as well be called KABOOM!™

the planets part SHOULD be obvious, seeing as the universe is infinite in distance and has no end.

20000miles a day?
that's a theory, not a fact.

you do realize that we still do not know whether the universive is infinite or finite... YOU COULD DIE...NOW!!

EDIT: Also, did you know (theory) that a universe can be as small as well..anything.. it can expand into itself...therefore everything would appear to be large but could be extremely small

whats bigger,
something with a limited count, BUT expands in number all the time,
or something that is INFINITE and has NO END to end?


then again, the universe being infinite could be just a theory as well.
but if i explain, it could lead to a different subject.....*runs to make a new thread*
