Fun Fact Friday.

Wine club is not the same as wine night. Wine club is a group of girls who get together and pretend to know stuff about wine. Each month we choose a different type of wine and everyone brings a bottle and we "taste" them (and by taste I mean get drunk). Wine night is where I get together with the infamous Jen and we drink and sometimes eat pizza. This is what I call "hobbies."

Anyhow, last night was a success.

But today is the day you all have been waiting for...FUN FACT FRIDAY!

Let's get some things straight here...Fun Fact Friday is NOT to be confused with Confession Friday. Fun Fact Friday is the day you leave me interesting tidbits so we can all live our lives just a little bit smarter. Confession Friday is just what the name implies....you confess something on Friday (creative, no?).

Today's Fun Fact:

Ohio is the only state without a traditional state flag. They have a pennant instead. Ohio is weird.

Your turn.

Oooh I like this. Here's a fact.
I am currently breaking the law by NOT owning a firearm in my city. That's right, there is a law on the books that says every homeowner must also own a gun.
You know, in case the Yanks show up. (It's left over from the Civil War era, I believe)

Fun Fact: Did you know that the human body produces its own supply of alcohol naturally on a continuous basis, 24 hours a day, seven days a week?
I kind of wish it would produce a lot more from 7-4 while I am at work...

Your chapter of wine club should take a field trip to our chapter of wine club. This what happened at last wine club: http://photos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs168.snc1/6320_708015384409_7820140_41881738_3921109_n.jpg

Babies, in the womb are covered in FUR. About a week before they are born, they lick it all off. HUMAN babies.

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her cheating adulterous husband but she may only do so with her bare hands.

Fun Fact: Oak trees do not produce acorns until they are fifty years of age or older.

Also, you do not have a drinking problem if you refer to it as a "hobby". At least that's what everyone tells me.

Hmm... my fun fact is... Connecticut is home to the oldest U.S. newspaper still being published: The Hartford Courant, established in 1764. YAH FOR MY HOMESTATE!

i am picking my fun fact because i like being right. when something is a lot i use the phrase "more than heinz has pickles" and my bf always replies with "heinz makes ketchup, not pickles". well guess what:

The 57 on Heinz ketchup bottles represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had.

so there dumb bf.

and MODGs fact make me throw up in my mouth. its not fun at all.

I'm going to give TWO facts. Because I can.

1. If we're sharing state pride, Oregon is the only state to have an official state nut. The hazelnut, which is also known as the filbert.

2. A fear of long words is "Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia" - now that's just cruel.

I know that until recently, some really racist laws existed in my state, such as if more than 5 Native Americans are together on your property, you may consider them to be engaging in war and may retaliate. Wierd.
BTW, I like your "hobbies." They sound much more fun than mine.

Fun fact of the day about my home state (RI)...I grew up in the smallest town in the smallest county in the smallest state!

ihatemichigan said...

at least you don't try to make your club sound sophisticated by calling it book club when it is really drink wine till you're drunk club. That's what I do.

Fun fact: you cannot snore and dream at the same time.

At least I'm skinny said...

You cannot give rabbits amoxicillin or else they will probably die.

Its Saturday, but I'm doing it anyway.
Next time you are stranded in the woods and get a bad cut and are bleeding everywhere...use cobwebs to aid in the clotting so you don't die.
I guess thats more of a survival tip than anything. But whatev.
