So You Think You Know Everything?

Part II

Here's part two of "So You Think You know Everything?" I would assume that these are true as I didn't have the time to go and verify them.

  • On a Canadian two-dollar bill, the flag flying over the Parliament building is an American flag.
  • Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.
  • Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.
  • Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.
  • 'Stewardesses' is the longest world typed with only the left hand and 'lollipop' with your right.
  • The average person's left hand does 56% of the typing.
  • The cruise liner, QE2, moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel that it burns.
  • The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.
  • The sentence: 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' uses every letter of the alphabet.
  • The winter of 1932 was so cold that Niagara Falls froze completely solid.
  • The words 'racecar" kayak' and 'level' are the same wheather they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).
  • There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar.
  • There are more chickens than people in the world.
  • There are only four words in the English language, which end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.
  • There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: 'abstemious' and 'facetious."
  • There's no Betty Rubble in the Flintstones Chewables Vitamins.
  • Tigers have striped skin, not only striped fur.
  • TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.
  • Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance.
  • Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

OK, let see...

Our eyes are always the same - I knew that. The nose & ears never stop growing (I thought there was something funny about Hector lately).

Stewardesses & Lollopop - I just had to type these, just to see:)
Yeap! That was a finger work-out.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog - I was in 5th grade when our teacher told us this. He had us read it and then try to figure out what was special about this sentence? I couldn't figure it out. But was impressed when he told us.

There are more chickens than people - No shit Sherlock!

"Racecar, Kayak & Level" - I had never paid attention to this. That's STUPENDOUS!

The Niagara Falls froze completely solid? That's HORRENDOUS!

Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance! That's HAZARDOUS!

Women blink nearly twice as much as men. That's TREMENDOUS!

Hi Thalia, long time no hear from you. Love ya.

Only you Chely can come up with a response like that.

It makes my day to know that I have at least five readers that read my blog regularly, it makes those late nights posting worth while.

Love ya.
