Friday's Follies and Fun Facts: Howl at the Moon and Drink Up Bitches!

Friday, November 20, 2009

Think Tank Momma may be off her game this morning.  Just a warning.  I was out really late last night(actually this morning) with the hubs and a wolf.  Yes, I braved the teenagers.  Bought me a ticket on Fandango.  Went to the theater and swooned while the hubs laughed at me.  He called me all sorts of nice names.  Pedophile, Cougar, SAD.  I can say no more, I promised my buddy Erin over at The Mother Load that I wouldn't spoil it for her.  Updates to come after all my NewMoon Mamas have had their opportunity to see it.

So since it is Friday. YEAH!  It's time once again to fill you heads full of useless knowledge.  Yes, facts that have no bearing on anything of substance.  Just useless shit you can bust out, mid-conversation so you can see your co-workers and drunk buddies make the WTF? face.

These first two are for all shout out to The Twilight Saga.  Big weekend in case you hadn't heard.

  • A hungry wolf can eat 20 pounds of meat in a single meal, which is akin to a human eating one hundred hamburgers 
  • The original  Manhattan cocktail was garnished with a drop of blood.

The next ones are inspired for my buddies:  Ed, Trav, and Moog.

  • Modern research has shown that a sharp decrease in daily calories results in fewer nocturnal ejaculations in men and an overall decrease in the sexual themes of dreams.
  • Jim Morrison was buried without pants.
  • Cuttlefish are chronic masturbators.  They only stop to eat, or if they have enough energy, to mate.
  • Pablo Picasso created some of his greatest works while wearing nothing but an apron and his favorite sandals.
  •  The lips are 100 times more sensitive than the tips of fingers.  Not even genitals have as much sensitivity as the lips!
 And finally, since it's the weekend, and you all may possible go out and hit Happy Hour, or have a beverage of the adult persuasion at some point this weekend, I share useless alcohol facts.

  • The signature cocktail served on the Hindenburg was called "The Flaming Drop"
  • While there wasn't any cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or pumpkin pie at the first Thanksgiving, there was beer, brandy, gin and wine to drink.
  • Bourbon takes it's name from Bourbon County Kentucky where it was first produced in 1789 by a Baptist minister.
  • Vikings used skulls of their enemies for drinking vessels.
  • Anyone under the age of 21 who takes out the trash with even one empty alcohol container can be charged with illegal possession of alcohol in Missouri.  WTF? 
That concludes this week's factoids and nonsense.  Hope you lovelies have a beautimous weekend.  Love!

You're awesome! I will be seriously hitting the home-time happy hour. No kids this weekend! Interesting about possession in Missouri. That's pretty f'd up. Have a great weekend!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day to comment-- I've got something for you there. When you get a chance, stop by and pick it up!


Peterson Family said...

Wow. I live in Missouri and had no idea.

am going to see New Moon tonight with my kids. I have given them the following instructions: There is no talking to me or at me, you will not need me to take you to the bathroom so either be really good at holding it or don't drink anything.

And only 83 days until Taylor is legal...FYI.

Ed Adams said...

So that explains where all my good dreams went.


Shell said...

Was it crazy at the theater?

I love your random facts, especially about all the alcohol at the first Thanksgiving. I think I'll make that a new tradition...especially since it's the one time of year when I am with ALLLLLLLL of my in-laws.

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

Now that is some interesting factoids. You can tell me, was it worth seeing??

Moooooog35 said...

This begs the question:

If a hungry wolf can eat 20 pounds of meat, what can Duran Duran eat?

Daffy said...

Mr. Cuttlefish must not have a 1953 GMC Chevy he's working on....hmph

Conquer The Monkey said...

Dual Mom said...

I think I should start drinking wine out of a skull.

Travis said...

If sexual dreams are based on calories, I'm fuckin Jessica Alba AND Kathy Ireland tonight.

Erin said...

Please feel free to post about it now!

I may be over on Team Jacob now....Edward just didn't do it for me last night. I'm kinda on the fence and already thinking ahead to Eclipse next June. I need a countdown for my blog for that!!

"The lips are 100 times more sensitive than the tips of fingers. Not even genitals have as much sensitivity as the lips!"

Ya' know what Ward said: Which lips?

Alex said...

Ha ha, you have waaaaay too much time on your hands. Sad thing is I managed to drop your Abe Lincoln fact from last week into conversation. Pooing in public, yeah!

Nancy Campbell said...

I. Love. This.

And, I will privately refer to my toddler from this point forward as "The Cuttlefish."

Thanks for stopping by and following my blog.

JenniferG said...

I am cracking up! Loving this senseless information AND the fact that you are a fellow Twilighter! Awesome.

Sadly, I have not seen the movie yet. It is my husband's turn to pick the movie and he wants to see 2012. I'm seriously thinking of skipping work to go view my fav vampire family. (No one has to know, right?)

Lisa E said...

Your facts are so thought provoking, especially about the cuttlefish. Exactly how does a fish masturbate??? :)

marymac said...

Heh heh. You said "nocturnal ejaculations." Heh.

blueviolet said...

Why was Jim Morrison buried without pants? These are astonishing and frightening factoids.

Hope you liked the movie!

Corrie Howe said...

wow, some interesting facts here. I guess I can't have my son not only take out the trash, but drive it to the dump either.

Unknown Mami said...

What?! One drop of blood for the cocktail. Who's blood?
