The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.


I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:While in some countries the penalty for driving while intoxicated can be death (yes, death), in Uruguay intoxication is a legal excuse for having an accident while driving. "Please believe me officer, I really was drunk."

Posted:If you pick a guinea pig up by the tail, its eyes will fall out.

The same happens if you pick a human up by the tail, of course.

The finger and toe nails grow after death, as does the beard. The nails also grow before birth, though NOT the beard.

Posted:If you do the Fibonacci sequence (you know, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13...) with ANY two starting numbers (as long as they aren't both zero or additive inverses) eventually the ratio between adjacent members of the sequence will approximate 1.612... (that is, phi, the "golden proportion").

The length ratio of full human arm to forearm is also 1.612. It's all over the place.

Posted:You can't sit in a chair and twirl your right foot around clockwise, and draw a number 6 in the air with your right hand, without changing direction on the swirling foot.

Actually this is true of normal people. Poisters may have wacky brains that can actually do this.

It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. There! Poi gives no advantage on THAT!
