A portfolio / blog site blasting out of a slightly crazy, possibly a bit ADD, but definitely unique mind.

Conversation starters…

I love random facts. They are unbelievably great conversation starters. Here are some good ones I have found recently. Take them and start some conversations!

Did you know…

The dot over an ‘i’ is called a tittle?

That the word ‘Talent’ means a group of the opposite sex collectively?

That a joint of lamb consisting of the breast and neck is called the Target?

That odontophobia is the fear of teeth?

That Isaac Asimov is the only author to have a book in every Dewey-decimal category? (if you don’t know what the Dewey-decimal system is Google it, looser.)

I bet you didn’t know that awesomely useless information. How about these?

The most money ever paid for a cow in an auction was $1.3 million.

There are 10 human body parts that are only 3 letters long. Can you figure out what they are? (I’ll post the answers later)

The word “lethologica” describes the state of not being able to remember the word you want.

The king of hearts is the only king without a moustache.

I’ll give you a couple more… cause I love useless crap!

The human heart creates enough pressure to squirt blood up to 30 feet.

The average person spends about 2 years on the phone in their lifetime.

The word “nerd” was first coined by Dr. Seuss in “If I Ran the Zoo.”

The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

The English word “girl” was initially used to describe a young person of either sex.

The science of kissing is called philematology.

Men are nearly three times more likely than women to abuse alcohol and twice as likely to abuse recreational drugs like marijuana and cocaine. (Bad Boys!!)

Gold is edible.

That’s all for now folks! Did you figure out the body parts that are only 3 letters long? If you did, good job! If you didn’t  here you go: eye, hip, arm, leg, ear, toe, jaw, rib, lip, gum.

Growing brains one useless fact at a time,
