According to an insurance study, about 150 Americans a year die from injuries suffered after falling out of bed. That correlates to you having about a 1 in 2,000,000 chance of dying that way over the next twelve months. Good luck!

Couple the fact that people die from falls out of bed, with the fact that politicians in some states still make laws depending what side of the bed they get out of every morning, and it's plain to see that a good night's rest is a very dangerous pursuit...  Buggedout

In 2007, Comcast accidently played porn on the Disney Channel. The schedule was suppose to play a cartoon called Handy Manny, but somehow, someone goofed up and played porn instead.

And yes, Manny must have been very Handy then.

Hog-nosed snakes feed exclusively on toads.  When fire ants wiped out the local toad population in the early 1990's, hog-nosed snakes disappeared from NE Texas.

The original plan was for Cincinnati, Ohio to be situated in Kentucky in order to make use of the north-flowing Licking River as a gateway to the southern interior. In 1788, the year of Cincinnati's founding, southwestern Ohio was dead center of the Miami Slaughterhouse, the colorfully named homeland of one of the more fierce peoples in the Northwest Territory. Kentucky was a safer option, the ground was more level, and the economics made more sense, and yet the settlers abruptly took it upon themselves to toss their carefully made plans and set up shop on the Ohio side because they found its seven hills more picturesque, proving once more that a whim inspired by beauty is one of the engines of human civilization.

Dr. Suess's first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was rejected by 27 different publishers (some sources say 29) for being too different, too silly, and not having a moral.  

His books have now sold over 600 million copies.

The first time a Navajo baby laughs, the family throws a party. The person who made the baby laugh provides the food.

America was actually the first country to spread the idea of having babies sleep in a different room than the parents. The Japanese sees this as barbaric.

Disney, huh? Reminds me of a little story I once heard:
Mickey Mouse wanted a divorce on the grounds of infidelity. When the cross examining lawyer began to grill him about his accusations of Minnie's mental instability, Mickey said, " I never said she was crazy, I said she was fu**ing Goofy"....

On the 5th Day of Christmas . . .
Inflation will always be with us.

The 12 gifts mentioned in "The 12 Days of Christmas" cost $12,623 in 1984.
In 2011, the price had almost doubled to $24,263.

The repetitions increased the price to $64,247.10 in 1984 and
$101,119.84 in 2011

The next time: the 6th day of Christmas

When Buddy Holly performed on Ed Sullivan in 1957, he did so with a white chicklet pushed into place of a missing tooth.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
