    For those of you who just thought you knew everything

    For those of you who just thought you knew everything,

    here's a re-fresher course...............

    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 mustache.

    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.

    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 "MarlboroMan"

    Walt Disney was afraid of mice.

    Pearls melt in vinegar.

    The three most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro,Coca Cola, and
    Budweiser, in that order.

    A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

    Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least six (6) feet
    away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush.
    (I keep my toothbrush in the living room now!)

    Richard Millhouse Nixon was the first U.S. President whose name contains
    all the letters from the word "criminal." The second?

    And the best for last.....

    Turtles can breathe through their butts.

    (I know some people like that; don't YOU?)

    Now you know everything there is to know. Of importance that is.
    I had to google 'jfgi' to see what it meant. The irony is overwhelming.

    I have several nice decks where the ace of spades certainly has one



    And I am sure that there will be people on this site who understand that comment


    And please leave my (distant) cousin out of things.........Clinton is his stepfather's name, not his own



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

    It's even easier than I thought it would be. For part of my senior prank we led a cow to the second story of the main building. The next morning they had to use like a freaking gallon of sedatives on it and then put it on this sled thing and they tried to slide it down the stairs....but being the dumbasses that they were, the sled thing went out from under the cow before it made it to the bottom so it kinda bounced and rolled the rest of the way down.... I believe it was too drunk to notice though. It probly noticed the broken leg when it woke up though... Good times.

    I dunno what happened to it. I guess the vets that managed to basically shove it down the flight of stairs took care of it... Dumbasses. I bet even the cow thought that.

    a bull also runs faster uphill than down, basically for the same reasons as the cow.

    its impossible to lick you elbow.

    pearls done melt... they disolve (try the same thing with an egg as below)

    egg in vinegar.....

    the vinegar (acetic acid) eats at the egg shell, leaving a "clear" membrane, allowing you to virtually bounce the egg... i recommend you try it... google and you prolly find detailed instructions... but basically leave it submerged below vinegar for a day or two but do check....

    You think that's harsh?

    Here's our senior prank: Greased pigs with a twist.

    We "borrowed" three pigs from my friend's uncle's farm in NH and numbered them "1" "2" and "4" with washable markers. We greased them with Crisco and set them loose in the school...

    Well of course they caught the pigs and thought one was missing. Now the fun part

    We borrowed the janitor's keys to "do some cleanup/work in the theatre department" but instead went down to the bowels of the building and set three pounds of bacon on fire in the a/c duct...

    We were mean in high school...

    That's a hell of a lot better than our geese labeled 1, 2, and 4. We just wanted to send 'em on a wild goose chase... This was in college though 2 semesters ago. Bacon though....freaking awesome!
