The length of your foot is the same as the length of your forearm.

In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

How many people just now put their foot up to their arm?

That if you try to measure your foot against your forearm while you are sitting in an office chair, several things are likely to happen?

1. 300 people will suddenly have had a reason to walk by your office and look in the door.

2. You will fall out of your chair.

Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria in your ear by 700 times.


300 people will suddenly have had a reason to walk by your office and look in the door.

Why is it that you can do something so extraordinary, say break a world's record, and nobody sees it, but the minute you do something stupid the whole world is there?

Oh HFSSC here's one more for your list:

3) You realize you are wearing a dress/skirt at the time.

To "testify" was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a statement made by swearing on their testicles.

I had to look that one up Does not appear to be true.

Both come from the Latin word testis which means 'witness' where 'testicles' were named as a witness to verility.

I looked that one up too. But can't you just picture a group of Roman men sitting around with their hands "firmly" in their laps promising to tell the truth?

In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

Not true. I've seen every episode up to disc 3 in season 6. It wasn't until the 4th season where Superman started appearing much more frequently, particularly in Jerry's apartment. I was getting frustrated because I wasn't seeing or catching any Superman references. I did a little google research and discovered that its' a myth!

My random fact-
There are more chickens in the world than people.


Failure is success if we learn from it.

My little factoid: the phrase "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye" comes from medieval times during the jousting contests. It*was* all fun and games until someone lost an eye due to a lance to the face.

Did you know...

Men's biggest fear is that women will laugh at them. And women's biggest fear is that men will kill them.

OK; it's not a fact, it's a joke--but a VERY true joke!


I promise to surround myself with amazing souls and love them fiercely.
