SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING?

SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW EVERYTHING?

What About these things?...





"Stewardesses" is the longest word typed with your
left hand and
"lollipop" with your right.

It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

Maine is the only state whose name is just one
syllable.

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.

The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same
whether they are
read left to right or right to left (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 keyboard.


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 crocodile cannot stick out its tongue.

A dragonfly has a life span of 24 hours.

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

A snail can sleep for three years.


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 its brain.

Babies are born without kneecaps. They don't appear
until the child
reaches 2 to 6 years of age.

Butterflies taste with their feet.

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds. Dogs only
have about 10.

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

In the last 4,000 years, no new animals have been
domesticated.

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

If you are an average American, in your whole life,
you will spend an
average of 6 months waiting at red lights.

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


There are 293 ways to make change for a dollar.

There are more chickens than people in the world.

There's no Betty Rubble in the Flintstones Chewables
Vitamins.

Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every
two weeks;
otherwise it will digest itself


THERE! .. Now you know everything
