The "sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is said to be the

If you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib.

If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel
in your head or neck and die. if you keep your eyes open
by force, they can pop out.

Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have
over million descendants.

Wearing headphones for just an hour will increase the bacteria
in your ear by 700 times.

If the government has no knowledge of aliens, then why does
Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations,
implemented on July 16, 1969, make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles?

In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

The cigarette lighter was invented before the match.

dating are already married.

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

I'm tired of hearing about the duck thing. Their quacks DO echo. That's how sound works. No to ways about it.

Well, I guess I am one of the 25% that didn't try to lick their elbow. HaHa, no elbow lickers here eh heh, um nope *slinks away in shame.


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

Did you know that the reason turkeys have to be raised indoors is because, if it starts to rain, they'll look up and drown?

Disclaimer: I mean domestic turkeys; the result of 1000s of years of selective breeding. Wild turkeys are actually quite clever.

And mean.

It's also illegal to "knowingly detonate a thermonuclear device within the city limits of *mumblemumble* AZ." (I'm not making this up.)

I'm glad there's that "knowingly" clause in there. :rolleyess

I'd much rather that than be eaten by 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders.

another fact about domestic turkeys, if you do not limit how much food you give them, they will eat themselves to death...

supposedly fish will do that to


If I thought of a good sig that would be weird, so I won't bother trying.

If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in a combat zone.
