I don't know if it is a fact or observation, but it seems you can have dozens of flies buzzing around you but the instant you bring out the fly swatter, boom, they all disappear. It's like they have a "sixth sense" or something...

Pirates used to wear an earring so that if they died on dry land, it could be used as payment for burial.

A rat can last longer without water than a camel can.

All pet hamsters are descended from a single female wild golden hamster found with a litter of 12 young in Syria in 1930.

Although not named in the New Testament, tradition names the two
thieves crucified at the same time as Jesus as Dismas and Gestas.

Strict Puritan laws had their origins from practical reasons. Smoking
was banned - farmers would raise badly needed food crops instead
of tobacco. Cooking was banned on Sundays - to prevent house fires
during the long hours the family was at church. Young men were banned
from hunting - to prevent weapons from falling into Indian hands.

This is a proven fact, as of 12:40 am CST. When a deer and crotch rocket (motorcycle) meet, they both lose. Deer dies, motorcyle is smashed!!! Yep, my middle boy hit a deer early this morning with my youngest son's motorcycle. He T-boned it, the deer died, and he was actually able to stay up without being thrown over the bars. Everyone that saw the deer, then the motorcycle, couldn't believe he was able to ride it out......I told him his guardian angel was riding as his passenger............. No

Another well known fact.......Rhonda and Clairol will fast become friends to hide the white hair that 3 boys on motorcycles will be givng her.................ROTFL
