Did You Know...

I believe it was Shakespeare who wrote, "You live and you learn." How true this is. This world we live in is full of very little known facts, and it's up to us to learn as much as we can.

Did you know...

  • The lowest four keys on the piano are inaudible to the human ear.

  • Wild horses can regenerate a leg if the herd has been culled too low.

  • Originally, the city of Phoenix was spelled with a "F."

  • Some midgets grow to nearly six feet tall.

  • Ghee, an ingredient often used in Indian and Middle Eastern style cooking, is actually just butter clarified with selenium.
  • Certain soups can be used to "water" your plants.

  • Tennis is the oldest competitive sport, dating back to 1885.
  • Ceiling fans cause more finger and lower arm amputations each year than all the wars in the world combined.

  • By definition, only white people can be racist. Also, only white people can be sexist.
