Why not? Here's mine: A stack of $1000.00 bills equalling $1 million is about 3 inches high. $1000.00 bills equalling $1 billion is about 250 feet high. A stack of $1000.00 bills equalling $1 trillion is about 47.3 miles high.

Celery is the only negative calorie food. The body has to use up more calories to move it through the digestive system than are actually contained in the celery. Jeff

Human beings can digest less than 1% of a salad, because the remaining 99% is cellulose and we lack the cellulase enzymes posessed by bovine mammals.

There is no Betty Rubble vitamin because the makers believe that a Betty version looks too similar to a Wilma version.

The first television series to be shot entirely in color was The Cisco Kid (I'm pretty certain this is true, but I haven't tried to verify it). It was not, however, the first to be shown in color. That honor goes to Bonanza.

Heard, but haven't verified.. You can only drink your urine once without taking any other liquids. Twice in a row could cause damage to your stomach.

Can you say "pon farr"? Posted Image

In English football's top division, only one club has gone the entire season undefeated: Preston North End, but way waaayyy back in 1888/89 (which incidentally was the first ever season). There were only 22 games a season then.

Since then, the longest unbeaten start to a season is 29 games, jointly held by Leeds (1973/74) and Liverpool (1987/88). Arsenal's current unbeaten start now stands at 26, so it's four more games to a new record.

There is no other word that rhymes with "month."

In Los Angeles, California, a man may legally beat his wife with a leather strap, as long as it is less than two inches wide, or she gives him permission to use a wider strap. ... It is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless the target is a whale.

In Pacific Grove, "molesting" butterflies can result in a $500 fine.

In Pasadena, it is illegal for a secretary to be alone in a room with her boss. ... It is illegal to set a mousetrap without a hunting license.

In Long Beach, it is illegal to curse on a mini-golf course.

In San Francisco, it is illegal to wipe one's car with used underwear. (I only did this that ONE time! And was immediately tossed in the pokey!) Posted Image ... It is illegal to cry on the witness stand in Los Angeles courts.

A co-worker once told me to divide your age by two then add 7 and that is the lowest age you should date. She also said something like if a man and woman are alone for 15 minutes than that is considered a date. I don't know about Alaskan's walking to work, it can get pretty cold in the winter and dangerous if there is a lot of snow...sidwalks being covered.

No other word than what? Or do you mean there is no word that rhymes with "month"? Anyway, something I just leanred, it is illegal in the state of Michigan to sell a car on Sunday. Now I know why all those dealers are closed!
