If you ask a girl out while standing in front of a flower shop, she's much more likely to say yes than if you do it while standing in front of a shoe store.  I read that in an issue of Men's Health while I was waiting for my doctor's appt. yesterday.

How about five facts, since I haven't posted in a while?

1. Though stereotyped as filthy barbarians, Viking spies, seeking to blend in with the native English, actually had to refrain from bathing lest they stand out by being too clean.

2. Despite it being a tradition to do so, kissing Oscar Wilde's tomb in Paris will now get you arrested for vandalism.

3. Sooner or later a baby will throw anything you give her off the tray of her high chair onto the floor, especially if the floor was just mopped. This is an unassailable truth.

4. Unless caught in an updraft, mosquitoes are rarely found more than two stories off the ground. Meaning people on high-rise balconies never need repellent.

5. Cable TV originates from a satellite, just as its so-called "satellite" competitors do.

How amazing is this: Tardigrades can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, pressures about 6 times stronger than pressures found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than would kill a person, and the vacuum of outer space. They can go without food or water for nearly 120 years, drying out to the point where they are 3% or less water, only to rehydrate, forage, and reproduce.

Or, about as long as Trevor's underpants last, before he has to replace them.

But, frankly, I'd rather eat the fruitcake. Sorry, Trevor!

A tour guide at the Empire State Building told us that the building's owners spent two grand its first year on rat traps. Two grand in 1930s dollars? Just how blinking many rats lived in the place????

Fact: On February 19, 1982 Ozzy Osbourne relieved himself against a wall at the Alamo.

Conjecture: On February 20, 1982, sales of tar and feathers soared all across the Lone Star State.

On the 8th day of Christmas
It's Unique

The only place to rent out living Christmas trees in the U.S. is in Portland, Oregon. In 2004, they rented out 419 trees at $55.00 each for a total of $23,045. Then when they were returned, they were sold at $10.00 each for a total of $4190. or a grand total of $27,235. I don't see how they can stay in business, but they've been in business since 1992.

Next time: the 9th day of Christmas

As long as 51% or more of any denomination of US currency is intact, a bill is still legal tender and can even be traded in at a bank for a replacement. Which means in theory it used to cost Tupac nothing to light his blunts with those hundreds.

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
