*A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.*




































































* A cat has 32 muscles in each ear. A crocodile cannot stick out its
tongue. A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. A "jiffy" is an
actual  unit of time for 1/100th of a second. A shark is the only fish that
can blink with both eyes. A snail can sleep for three years. Al Capone's
business card said he was a used furniture dealer. All 50 states are listed
across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill. An
ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. Babies are born without kneecaps.
They don't appear until the child reaches 2 to 6 years of age. Butterflies
taste with their feet. Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds. Dogs only
have about 10. "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters
"mt". February 1865 is the only month in recorded history not to have a
full moon. In the last 4,000 years, no new animals have been domesticated.
If the population of China walked  past you, in single file, the line would
never end because of the rate of reproduction. If you are an average
American, in your whole life, you will spend an average of 6 months waiting
at red lights. It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Leonardo Da
Vinci invented the scissors. Maine is the only state whose name is just one
syllable. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange,
silver, or purple. 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 word 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 whether 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 n
order:  abstentious and facetious.*

*There's no Betty Rubble in the Flintstones Chewable Vitamins.*

*Tigers have striped skin, not just 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.*

*Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks;
otherwise it will digest itself.*

*There , now you know everything.*
