    I know those are meant for fun but the.....

    Q. Why are buttons on girls shirts on different sides that mens shirt has a serious answer.

    A. In the old day women were sometimes dresses by servants, that is why the buttons are on the other side, so it is easier for someone other than the woman wearing the shirt to button it. =)

    That is just a little trivia that a professor told me one time...

    Ooh Ooh another one, if you walk on the plane going the speed of sound you are NOT going faster than the speed of sound, you are still moving with the plane hence you are traveling at the same speed, teh only way to go faster is to run on top of the airplaane and leap off hoping to get ahead an inch before the wind resistance sends you spiraling back to earth on your way to your doom

    I really don't wanna think about it. Actually, what I really don't want to think about is how much time I just spent reading that post while I am at work.. Gotta love spending 15 minutes of work reading or was it 20?
