    So the lucky get to do all the hard dirty jobs and the unlucky get to say "sure you can take a photo of these, that'll be £500 please" or "I think I prefered the other wall paper better". The unlucky ones get to rule the lucky ones? The only function my nipples have is to form the eyes of a rather funny comedy face.

    A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

    Average life span of a major league baseball: 7 pitches.

    Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously. (who wants to try this one?)

    There is an average of 178 sesame seeds on a McDonald's Big Mac bun. ( I volunteer to test this one!)

    The 3 most valuable brand names on earth: Marlboro, Coca-Cola,
    and Budweiser, in that order. (I don't get what they mean by "valuable")

    When Heinz ketchup leaves the bottle, it travels at a rate of 25 miles per
    year. (Finally, I've been waiting to find that out all my life. Now I must go kill myself because I have no purpose anymore)

    On average, 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year. (No Comment)

    In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the world's
    nuclear weapons combined.

    Elephants can't jump (Gee, I wonder Why...). Every other mammal can.

    According to one study, 24% of lawns have some sort of lawn ornament
    in their yard. (who funds these studies?)

    Clans of long ago that wanted to get rid of their unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down - hence the expression "to get fired."

    If a duck quacks in the forest, will anyone hear it?

    What I want to know is who the idiot was who one day decided to up and inject nutmeg as an experiment.

    Marlboro, yeah, it's everywhere. Misery loves company, I guess. Budweiser? Well, valuabe in North America. The rest of the world would probably think it's dishwater or funny tasting lemonade.

    Whoa, I don't know about that. Seems like half the time I've made ketchup "leave" the bottle it's been damn near supersonic, ricocheting off the dinner plate and decorating all furniture and walls within 50 feet!
    On average, 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year.
    It's definitely time for BallPoint Pen Control! "If it saves one life..."

    Well, at least white elephants can't jump.

    Oh yes it does. The moment it leaves the Ducks bill it ceases to be a quack and just becomes another set of pressure waves that behave like all the other sets of pressure waves trying to get your attention.

    Yes it does. The only SHRED of information that even remotely supports this is the fact that a duck's quack has a similar frequency profile to an echo. A duck, however, echoes just fine.

    The brand is as valuable as the product. It's the image the product represents.. The popularity it is thought to generate. For example, Coca-Cola in Japan is synonymous with a gregarious, out-going, refined taste. Despite the "Gaijin" mentality of Japan, it is popular and even trendy to emulate superficial elements of the United States. Coca-Cola is a huge name, and it doesn't matter what the name gets stuck on.

    Good. Hopefully my clamorings for people to choke on their pen and die will go heeded. :grr:

    As for the whole nutmeg thing... Nutmeg in mild amounts is great-tasting, and is used in a variety of recipes including the known elements of the fabled Coca-Cola syrup. However, when ingested in large doeses (1 or more grams), it has similar effects to large doses of marijuana (Lethargy, mental disconnection/sluggishness, a mellow feeling) or (In some cases) a similar effect to ecstasy. The "Unfortunate" thing about Nutmeg is that the high doesn't start for six hours, and doesn't stop for three days. I'm sure some cracked-out drug-fiend popped a few grams of nutmeg, loved the high, and thought he could get a better one by injecting it.

    God bless the 70s.

    nice job crapping on scars thread guys... sheesh... You bunch'a dorks! ;)


    In Redondo Beach, Calif., a police officer arrested a driver after a short chase and charged him with drunk driving. Officer Joseph Fonteno's suspicions were aroused when he saw the white Mazda MX-7 rolling down Pacific Coast Highway with half of a traffic-light pole, including the lights, lying across its hood. The driver had hit the pole on a median strip and simply kept driving. According to Fonteno, when the driver was asked about the pole, he said, "It came with the car when I bought it."

    Lawsuits filed by California inmates cost the taxpayers more than $25 million in 1994.

    A reward of $1,000 was offered for information leading to the capture and conviction of a man robbing taxi drivers. The man turned himself in and demanded the reward as a result. He received a 20 year sentence for aggravated robbery instead.

    A judge in Louisville decided a jury went "a little bit too far" in recommending a sentence of 5,005 years for a man who was convicted of five robberies and a kidnapping. The judge reduced the sentence to 1,001 years.

    In South Africa, termites are often roasted and eaten by the handful, like pretzels or popcorn.

    The short-term memory capacity for most people is between five and nine items or digits. This is one reason that phone numbers were kept to seven digits for so long.

    Suspicions were aroused? What the hell kind of cop is that?

    Cop 1: Hey, Bill check that guy out. He's got a traffic pole on his car!
    Cop 2: Relax Joe, That's the new 2006 Acura. You never need to stop at a traffic light again!
    Cop 1: Oh well then, that's okay. I just thought for a second that he was a bad driver or something.

    Native Americans all have type O blood. (100% Native Americans)

    There is a city called Rome on every continent.

    Bottled water costs about 1,000 times more than tap water. (lol...)

    You cannot lose a contact lens in the back of your head. (Well that's a little comforting)

    The average speed of a man's orgasm is 28 MPH. (This is even worse then the ketchup bottle one. HAHAHAHAHA)

    There are no fish living in the Dead Sea. (Ya think?)

    The largest kidney stone weighed 14 pounds. (How much did the kidney way?)

    It is illegal to lick toads in Arizona. (Which idiot actually sits down to find these laws. And the idiot writing the laws is even more of a "dumb ass")

    An average ball point pen can write a line 2 miles (3.2 km) long. (1.9 FYI)

    It is not possible to fold a piece of paper in half more than seven times. (I've tried, and it's not possible for me, but couldn't they like build a super strong machine that could probably do it?)

    The Empire State Building bas 6,400 windows. (That's why theres so much traffic. Those idiots are stopping to count the windows...)
