PerryC is a jewel in the rough
Default Very Interesting...

INTERESTING OR WHAT?

In the 1400's a law was set forth that a man was not allowed to beat hiswife with a stick no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have "the rule
of thumb".

Many years ago in Scotland, a new game was invented. It was
ruled "Gentlemen Only...Ladies Forbidden"...and thus the word GOLF
entered into the English language.

The first couple to be shown in bed together on prime time TV was Fred
and Wilma Flintstone.

Every day more money is printed for Monopoly than the US Treasury.

Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

Coca-Cola was originally green.

It is impossible to lick your elbow.

The average number of people airborne over the US any given hour: 61,000

Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

The first novel ever written on a typewriter: Tom Sawyer.

Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king in 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 the 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 as a result of wounds received in battle. If the
horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural
causes.

Q. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until
you would find the letter "A"?

A. One thousand.

Q. What do bullet-proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and
laser printers all have in common?

A. All invented by women.

Q. What is the only food that doesn't spoil? A. Honey

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......... "good night, 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 P's and Q's"

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

Don't delete this just because it looks weird. Believe it or not, you
can read it.

At least 75% of people who read this will try to lick their elbow


This is all cool and interesting Scott, but I still wanna see the German Shepard driving the 1957 Chevy pulling the guy down the road on an aluminum ladder. That would top anything I could read here
