    No, but that's very neat.

    Did you know that the only "root" word with three connected pairs of letters in English is "bookkeeper"?

    Elodin: "Tombs is for feckless twits who can't chew their own food. My boy's a Re'lar! He has the feck of twenty men!"

    Kvothe: “Books are a poor substitute for female companionship, but they are easier to find.”

    Simmon: ”It’s just ointment in case you get burned...but if you mix it with piss, it turns into candy.” Sim’s expression was deadpan. “Delicious candy.”

    I did not know that. (How did You know that?)

    Did you know that Edgar Allan Poe married his first cousin (Virginia Clemm).
    I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. - Edgar Allan Poe

    Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity. - H.P. Lovecraft

    Never heard that, but believable...

    Heinz 57 catchup started as a pickle company and produced 57 varieties of pickles. If you look at the Heinz bottle, under the logo you'll see a little pickle image with '57' under it.
    I learned that standing in front of a urinal, reading useless trivia posted on a board.



    "As for gunslingers, Roland," Cuthbert says, "I am here. And we are the last."


    When two fit, it makes you think
    I got the cute one, my woman
    She says, "Lovin's all I bring"
    And it's her loving that's a wonderful thing.
    Lovin' yes we are, it's such a wonderful thing
    When two fit it makes you think
    See us both in the black
    She lays on me so relaxed.

    so then how do the little fuckers bite me?



    did you know:

    A group of unicorns is called a blessing. Twelve or more cows are known as a "flink." A group of frogs is called an army. A group of rhinos is called a crash. A group of kangaroos is called a mob. A group of whales is called a pod. A group of ravens is called a murder. A group of officers is called a mess. A group of larks is called an exaltation. A group of owls is called a parliament.
    which group would you rather be in?

    i'd rather be in the mob.

    mosquitoes have 47 teeth, but "bite" you by stabbing their beak (or whatever it is) into you.

    2 by 4's aren't 2 inches by 4 inches. they're 1 and a half by 3 and a half. same for 2 by 6's, 2 by 8's, etc... 1 and a half by 5 and a half, 7 and a half etc...

    i did not know that. and now i feel like i'm getting ripped off!




    did you know that studies show that if a cat falls off the seventh floor of a building it has about thirty percent less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the twentieth floor. it supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself. (i want to know who has been throwing cats off of buildings!!!!!!!)
