intersting facts ...

*  If you are right handed, you will tend to chew your food on your right side.  If you are left handed, you will tend to chew your food on your left side. (I chew on the left hand side ... and I am right handed.  Does that make me an odd ball???)

* If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water. When a human body is dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off.

* Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.

* Your tongue is germ free only if it is pink. If it is white there is a thin film of bacteria on it.  (GROSS!!!)

* The pupil of the eye expands as much as 45 percent when a person looks at something pleasing.

*  Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system.  Six-year-olds laugh an average of 300 times a day.  Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day.  (No wonder Eythen is always so darn happy all the time.)

*  The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear.  (Well that ruined my fantasy of always being able to hear the ocean.)

*  Dalmatians are born without spots.

*  Bats always turn left when exiting a cave.  (What happens if it is a one way street at the end of the cave???)

*  The reason honey is so easy to digest is that it’s already been digested by a bee.  (Yep ... I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.)

*  Roosters cannot crow if they cannot extend their necks.  (So ... if a rooster was in a car wreck and had to wear a neck brace ... he would need to take a few days off ... is that what you are saying???)

*  Every time you sneeze some of your brain cells die.  (Great!  Remind me not to sneeze anymore.)

*  When you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red.  (Odd!)

*  When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red.  (What happens if they are happy?  Does it turn yellow ... like the sunshie???)

*  It cost 7 million dollars to build the Titanic and 200 million to make a film about it.  (How much did Leonadro and Kate get paid to be in the movie?  400 million???)

*  There are 1,792 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower.  (Which is exactly why I will never climb the steps in the Eiffel Tower)

*  The sound you hear when you crack your knuckles is actually the sound of nitrogen gas bubbles bursting.  (Does this mean Clint's hand might explode if he keeps poping his knuckles?)

*  Human hair and fingernails continue to grow after death.  (Uhhh ... )

*  It takes about 20 seconds for a red blood cell to circle the whole body.  (fast little suckers.)

*  Most soccer players run 7 miles in a game.  (What about little league?  I am pretty sure Eythen does not run that much ... but he is exhausted after Clint makes him play 3 quarters out of 4.)

*  Every day 200 million couples make love, 400,000 babies are born, and 140,000 people die.  (All I can say is ... that is alot of horny people!!!)

*  Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair. (No wonder my children are so darn smart!)
