    About two hundred babies are born worldwide every minute.

    Fingernails grow nearly 4 times faster than toenails.

    Before there was any real anesthesia, surgery was as painful as deliberate torture.

    A lifetime supply of all the vitamins you need weighs only about eight ounces.

    About 1 out of every 70 people who pick their nose actually eat their boogers.

    If someone punches you in the nose hard, it will hurt.

    The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water
    temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

    Here are some facts about the 1500s:

    Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May
    and still smelled pretty good
    by June. However, they were starting to smell so brides carried a bouquet of
    flowers to hide the body odor.
    Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married. Baths
    consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the
    privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men,
    then the women and finally the children-last of all the babies. By then the
    water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying,
    "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water."

    Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath.
    It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the dogs, cats and
    other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it
    became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof.
    Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs."
    There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a
    real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could really mess
    up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over
    the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into
    existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had
    something other than dirt. Hence the saying "dirt poor." The wealthy had
    slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread
    thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore
    on, they kept adding more thresh until when you opened the door it would all
    start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence
    the saying a "thresh hold."

    In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always
    hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot.
    They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the
    stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then
    start over the next day. Sometimes
    the stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the
    rhyme, "Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot
    nine days old." Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite
    special.
    When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was
    a sign of wealth that a man "could bring home the bacon." They would cut off
    a little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat."
    Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content
    caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning and
    death. This happened most often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or
    so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to
    status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle,
    and guests got the top, or "upper crust." Lead cups were used to drink ale
    or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock them out for a couple of
    days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare
    them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of
    days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see
    if they would wake up. Hence the custom of holding a "wake."

    England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places
    to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a
    "bone-house" and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25
    coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized
    they had been burying people alive. So they thought they
    would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin
    and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit
    out in the graveyard all night ("the graveyard shift") to listen for the
    bell; thus, someone could be "saved by the bell" or was considered a "dead
    ringer."
    And that's the truth...

    Now, whoever said that History was boring

    The smallest bone in humans is the stirrup bone -- it is in the ear and is 0.1 inch long.

    Stewardesses is the longest work typed only with the left hand on a QWERTY keyboard while using right hand monopoly or hillbilly are the longest, depending on whether you count "b" as a lefthand only letter or as a letter that can be typed with either hand.

    4) The Film Braveheart was filmed in Ireland
    5) In the Star Trek Film First Contact. Jean Luc Picard is showing Lilly she is aborting the earth. Australia and Pupua New Guinea are clearly visiable. New Zealand is missing.
