SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ?

SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ?

( OK, Let's test you then..Smartie Pants ! )

[ It's back to grade school, That's "A,B,C,D,E,F,G" playing in the Background ]


"Stewardesses" is the longest word
typed with only the left hand
and "lollipop" with your right.
( Bet you tried this out mentally, didn't you. )


Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable.
( I'll bet you're going to check this out, there's gotta be another one... HUH .)


No word in the English language
rhymes with month, orange, silver,
or purple.


"Dreamt" is the only English word
that ends in the letters "mt".


Our eyes are always the same size from birth,
but our nose and ears never stop growing.


The sentence:
"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
uses every letter of the alphabet.
( Now, you KNOW you're going to try this out for accuracy, right ? )


The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are spelled the same
whether they are read left to right or right to left.
They are called " Palindromes "


There are only four words in the English language
which end in "dous":
tremendous,
horrendous,
stupendous,
and hazardous.


There are two words in the English language
that have all five vowels in order:
"abstemious" and "facetious."


TYPEWRITER is the longest word
that can be made using the letters only
on one row of the typewriter keyboard.
( All you typists are going to test this out )


All 50 states are listed across the top
of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill.


A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.


A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.


A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.
( That explains it....Some days. I feel like a Goldfish. )



A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.


A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.


A snail can sleep for three years.
( I know some people that could do this too. )


Al Capone's business card said
he was a used furniture dealer.


Almonds are a member of the peach family.


An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain.
( Yep ! and on those days when I don't feel like a goldfish, I feel like an Ostrich. )


Babies are born without kneecaps.
None, until a child reaches 2 to 6 years of age.


February 1865 is the only month in recorded history
not to have a full moon.


If the population of China walked past you, 8 abreast,
the line would never end because of the Chinese birthrate.



If you are an average American, in your whole life,
you will spend an average of 6 months
in your car waiting at red lights.
( I knew there was a reason why no one stops!)


Leonardo Da Vinci invented the scissors.


On a Canadian two dollar bill, the flag flying over the Parliament building
is an American flag.


Peanuts are one of the ingredients of Dynamite !


Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.


The average person's left hand does 56% of the typing.


The cruise liner, QE2, moves only six inches
for each gallon of diesel that it burns.


The microwave was invented after a researcher
walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar
melted in his pocket.
( Lucky, It coulda melted something more vital. )


The winter of 1932 was so cold that Niagara Falls froze completely solid.


There are more chickens than people in the world.
( Numerically.. Bird Flu is a VERY SERIOUS MATTER . )


Women blink nearly twice as much as men


TThere ........
Now you know Everything !

When someone annoys you, it takes 42 muscles to frown, but it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and whack them on the head.
