Happy Friday Smackers. Once again it's time to fill your minds with random shit that really makes no difference at all and will only give you satisfaction in knowing it if you are um....well, strange like me.
Normally I try to theme these, but if you have read my blog this week at all you know that this ADD Momma has spent waaaaaaay too much time with three little ADD boys and my brain is frazzled so.....this is my brain "unplugged" if you will. What you see is what you get and that's all random all the time.
This is what BDC commonly refers to as a brain dump. <----yes, he means it that way. (Brain dumps cause diarrhea of the mouth. Or so I've been told.)
Hold on to your hats folks and try to keep up....here we go!
~ The whip was the first thing invented that broke the sound barrier.
~ Nine pennies weigh exactly one ounce.
~ The largest eggs on earth are laid by sharks.
~ The Boston University Bridge (Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts) is the only place in the world where a boat can sail under a train, driving under a car, driving under a plane.
~ Only 4% of babies are born on their actual "due" date.
~ A duck's quack does not echo. It is not known why.
~ The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
~ The first novel ever written on a typewriter was Tom Sawyer.
~ The term "mind your p's and q's" was derived from English pubs where ale (beer) is ordered by pints and quarts. When patrons would get unruly bartenders would settle them down by telling them to "mind their pints and quarts".
~ The term "rule of thumb" is derived from an Old English law. Men were not allowed to beat their wives with anything wider than the width of their thumbs!
Alright Smackers, go enjoy your weekend! Hope you enjoyed the completely useless and random factoids!
