    Did you know women can talk longer with less effort than can men? That has been proved repeatedly. Why? Because the vocal cords of women are shorter than those of men and so release less air through them to carry the sound. It's all a matter of breathing.

    Did you know a team of medical experts in Virginia contends you're more likely to catch the common cold virus by shaking hands than by kissing?

    Did you know American Roy Sullivan has been struck by lighting a record seven times?

    Did you know over 4 million cars in Brazil are now running on gasohol instead of petrol? Gasohol is a fuel made from sugar cane.

    Did you know the loudest noise ever known was produced by a volcanic eruption at Krakatoa, near Javan, in 1883? The sound was heard in Australia, 5000 km away.

    Did you know that all 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the $5 bill?

    Did you know that on a Canadian $2 bill the flag flying over th Parlament Building is an American flag?(EDIT: Proven false. It is actualy Canada's old flag called the "Red Ensign"(Canada's Flag from 1870-1965))

    That the one about the bald eagles is true, I didn't try to lick my elbow when I read that post because I already know I can't.

    I am also left handed speedo.

    Let me think here what random facts should I post....

    Did you know Canada has the best snipers in the world?(need better but I am to lazy to google)

    Did you know that pot will probably be legallized in Canada in the next 15 years.

    The phrase "raining cats and dogs" originated in 17th Century England. During heavy downpours of rain, many of these poor animals unfortunately drowned and their bodies would be seen floating in the rain torrents that raced through the streets. The situation gave the appearance that it had literally rained "cats and dogs" and led to the current expression.

    It's possible to lead a cow upstairs...but not downstairs.

    70 percent of virus writers work under contract for organized crime syndicates. - Linux World http://www.linuxinsider.com/story/features/42376.html

    Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of their unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down - hence the expression "to get fired."

    Catnip can affect lions and tigers as well as house cats. It excites them because it contains a chemical that resembles an excretion of the dominant female's urine.... I am so going down to my local zoo!
    Every second breathes life into reason for dying.
