Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

That really is a song title, world. Johnny Prine.

In keeping with our lovely man pic, here is some totally useless info. Have no idea if it's true or not but enjoy....

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

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 MOUSTACHE

American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one (1) olive from each salad served in first-class.

Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise. (Since Venus is normally associated with women,what does this tell you!)

Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

Most dust particles in your house are made from DEAD SKIN!

The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer. So did the first "Marlboro Man."

Walt Disney was afraid OF MICE!

    Mythbusters disproved the toothbrush thing, so you can move your toothbrush back to the bathroom.
    The paper folding one is true. No matter how large a sheet or how thin the paper, you can't fold it in half more than 7 times.

    My oaks must be hundreds of years old. The damn things produced about 500 lbs of them last year.

    Ok, what did they do with the cow once they proved it could go up??? That would be one p*ssed off household.

    Tshsmom you have NO idea how relieved I am about that toothbrush thing. Really.

    DMJ I wonder about that oak thing. The living monster on my neighbor's lawn is a maple and it is STILL producing those polynose things (seeds) ..I find them in the snow all the time. Horny little @#$%.

    Wondered the same thing about the cow. Hope that they just used a short set of steps outside (like into a barn)...maybe they would have given it anaesthetic or something? ANyway it sure would have been a mess...

    That is one of my all time favorite songs... ranks right up ther with Jimmy Buffet"s "Why Don't We get Drunk and Screw?". A line which actually works on occasion, btw!
