I really like that song too, it cracks me up. :w00t: But (to me at least) the lyrics are a little hard to understand, so I should have posted this one which has the lyrics:

To continue on topic (from 99 interesting facts about etc.)

When Twister (the game) was introduced in 1966, it was denounced by critics as "sex in a box".

There are more lifeforms living on your skin than there are people living on the planet (did we really need to know that?)

Otters sleep holding hands...

OJ Simpson was originally cast to play Terminator, but the studio was afraid no one would buy him as a remorseless killer.

Yuck! "20% of coffee mugs contain fecal matter"...I assume that's the mug itself, not what's in the mug....

When Alexander the Great was on his deathbed, he summoned his generals and told them his three final wishes:

1. The best doctors should carry his coffin;

2. The wealth he had accumulated, (money, gold, precious stones), should be scattered along the way to his burial;

3. His hands should be left hanging outside the coffin for all to see.

Surprised by these unusual requests, one of his generals asked Alexander to explain. Here's what he said:

I want the best doctors to carry my coffin to demonstrate that in the face of death, even the best doctors in the world have no power to heal.

I want the road to be covered with my treasure so that everybody sees that the wealth acquired on earth, stays on earth.

I want my hands to swing in the wind so that people understand that we come into this world empty-handed and we leave empty-handed after the

most precious treasure of all is exhausted - Time.

Now, not-a-lotta people know that! :no:

There are 365 languages in Indonesia alone...so if someone tells you they know every language in the world, you can bet they are lying...unless they have a supernatural gift! (This is UM after all...)

I haven't Googled this but I can't help wondering if they might be dialects rather then separate languages!

More information about it here:

http://didyouknow.or...o-in-the-world/

If what happens in China is any guide (which has I think at least about 500 separate languages although most Chinese also speak Mandarin or Cantonese) then they are not mutually intelligible which would qualify them as separate languages, although this is just a guess on my part. If my info on China in incorrect I hope one of our Chinese friends will correct me (if their government allows them on this site).

I am of the very firm belief that there are no aliens, that they are in fact demonic in origin. I wonder what you as a Christian, (myself as well), think about that?

I'm signing off now as well. It's coming up to 10.30pm and I have other things to do. As they used to say on 'The Prisoner', "Be seeing you"!

Men can read smaller print than women, but women can hear better!

Coca-Cola was originally green!

It is impossible to lick your elbow! (Don't waste your time trying!).

The U.S. state with the highest percentage of people who walk to work is Alaska! (Might be because of the snow!).

The percentage of Africa that is wilderness is 28%. Now get this:The percentage of North America that is wilderness is 38%!

The cost of raising a medium-size dog to the age of eleven is $16,400!

The average number of people airborne over the U.S. in any given hour is 61,000!

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair! (Must be why I have to wash mine so often!!).

The first novel ever written on a typewriter was Tom Sawyer!

The San Francisco Cable cars are the only mobile National Monuments in the USA!

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

Spades - King David;

Hearts - Charlemagne;

Clubs - Alexander the Great;

Diamonds - Julius Caesar.

111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321.

If a statue in a park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle;

if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died because of wounds received in battle;

if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes. (If the horse is on its back with all four legs in the air the person's parachute failed to open!!).

Only two people signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4: John Hancock and Charles Thomson. Most of the rest signed on August 2, but the last signature wasn't added until 5 years later.

Q. Half of all Americans live within 50 miles of what?

Q. Most boat owners name their boats, so what is the most popular boat name requested?

In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes, the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase, 'Goodnight, sleep tight'!

It was the accepted practice in Babylon, 4,000 years ago, that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So, in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them "Mind your pints and quarts, and settle down". It's where we get the phrase 'mind your Ps and Qs'.

Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim, or handle, of their ceramic mugs. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. 'Wet your whistle' is the phrase inspired by this practice.

Great minds think alike...I'm pretty much convinced that 99.9%, if not 100%, of UFO sightings are in fact demonic (excluding hoaxes of course). Lucifer is known as the "Prince of the power of the air" and also as "the light bearer". I wish more people would show an interest in this thread, but right now it just seems to be you and me!

I 100% agree with that.

It will pick up again I'm sure, although it might very well have run its course - hopefully not.

Maybe you should take your musings on Lucifer and the aliens to a thread that is more spiritually or theoretically based, this thread is for facts not theories - facts that notta lotta people know. Let's just keep on topic shall we?

Back on topic, squirrels forget where about 50% of their nuts are hidden. Useless. Hahaha.

Dogs can have a fatal reaction to eating chocolate. (This is probably more widely known now.)

The active ingredient in most toothpastes is called sodium fluoride. Sodium fluoride can be lethal, young children using such toothpastes should be closely monitored. Even swallowing small amounts can cause stomach problems or worse. (Edit for accuracy)

No Hahaha here. Forgotten nuts (seeds) result in plant growth, so the oblivion of the nuts storage locations is

a process that was evolutionary established.

While it may result in plant growth, it probably slows overall growth. In my yard, squirrels will grab nuts from the ground where they would most likely sprout. They put them in a hole in a tree or other place where, even if forgotten, they do not sprout.
