For Your Cranial Pleasure

Did you know elephants are the only mammals who can't jump. I don't know why God would rob them of such a joy as jumping. But they can't, this also means giraffes can jump and I would like to see that one day.
And I like making lists. Like today, I am going to make a list of things you don't know. I love crazy random facts and I am sure you like feeling smart.


1. The numbers '172' can be found on the back of the U.S. $5 dollar bill in the bushes at the base of the Lincoln Memorial.

This is something Dan Brown should have told me but did not, why is it there? In the bushes of all places.

2. The most money ever paid for a cow in an auction was $1.3 million.

3. On the new hundred dollar bill the time on the clock tower of Independence Hall is 4:10.
4. Minus 40 degrees Celsius is exactly the same as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

5. The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

Try and remember this...just for fun. And you know those "handle" things on spectactles and glasses, what are they called??

6. Some individuals who claim never to have felt romantic love suffer from hypopituitarism, a rare disease that doesn’t allow a person to feel the rapture of love.
7. Carnivorous animals will not eat another animal that has been hit by a lightning strike.
I am safe!! I will roam the Amazons without fear now.

8. Every year, 100 men are diagnosed with breast cancer

9. Number of chemical elements in the universe : 104. In a glass of New Jersey tap water : 98

10. According to Bible, God killed 2,038,334 people , compared with Satan's 10.
But remember, he loves you. (God, I mean..)

11. A woman uses about 20,000 words per day; a man uses about 7,000.

  1. hi,
    Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

    I have added you to my blogroll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.
