useless info

Politics, gas prices, economy, stock market.... most days I take a deep breath before I turn on the news. So, in effort to lighten up things, I wanted to post my first Monday edition of random facts and ponderings...
Ten random facts:

  1. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver or purple.
  2. In a speech made in 1961, John F. Kennedy was recorded as speaking at 327 words per minute, the fastest in public history.
  3. You have to pay a tax in Denmark to use the back seat of your car for passengers.
  4. There is a city in Norway called "Hell.
  5. Every time Beethoven sat down to write music, he poured ice water over his head.
  6. Giraffes only sleep for 5 minutes a day.
  7. Mark Twain didn't graduate from elementary school.
  8. Your nose and ears never stop growing.
  9. A law in Alexandria, Minnesota makes it illegal for a husband to make love to his wife if his breath smells like garlic, onions, or sardines.
  10. Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand while drawing with the other.

The whole nose and ears thing is fantastic. I can not wait! Hopefully a lot of hair pours out of both as well. I am stoked ...
