Weird things

And here for your enjoyment and enlightenment are some tidbits of knowledge that I happened to come across today at a female AAA ice hockey game (which happens to be totally irrelevant!) (and no, I do not vouch for the veracity of any of it):

- butterflies taste with their feet
- a duck's quack does not echo and no one knows why
- in 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all of the world's nuclear weapons combined
- on average, 100 people choke to death on ball point pens every year (how do they manage that, I wonder?)
- on average, people fear spiders more than they do death
- thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already married
- elephants are the only animals that cannot jump
- only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older
- it's possible to lead a cow upstairs . . . but not downstairs
- women blink nearly twice as much as men
- it is physically impossible to lick your elbow
- a snail can sleep for three years
- no word in the English language rhymes with 'MONTH"
- our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing
- all polar bears are left 'handed'
- an ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain
- TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard
- "Go" is the shortest complete sentence in the English language
- a crocodile cannot stick out its tongue
- the cigarette lighter was invented before the match
- Americans eat on average 18 acres of pizza every day (2.5 acres = 1 ha)

you tried to lick your elbow, did not you?!

wat zijn we trots op ons familiewapen ...., beetje jaloers zeker ....
