Fun Fact Friday.

S and I are shopping for a house. We had been to open houses and all of that jazz before, but we have finally gotten serious. Engaged a Realtor, all that jazz.

Every time you look at a house, they give you a "Seller's Disclosure Notice." Until we looked at a house with an actual real live Realtor, I had never paid attention to this (mainly because it was still all pretend in my head).

That's when I noticed today's fun fact...

On The Texas Association of Realtors Seller's Disclosure Notice, one of the questions is:

"Are you (Seller) aware of any of the following conditions: (Mark Yes (Y) if you are aware and No (N) if you are not aware.)

Previous Use of Premises for Manufacture of Methamphetamine."

Leave your fun fact in the comment and try your best not to good "fun facts" or "random fact". I am on to you people.

Hahahaha... that's classy. "Yes, this house was used for the manufacturing of meth. But that was contained to the garage."

Fun fact: Bird poo is so corrosive that it can strip the paint off your car if there's enough of it.

Spray hairspray on the walls. If the paint turns blue, you've got a meth plant. (I learned that on CSI)

Sorry lefties, I came across this shiny lil gem this morning...

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.

Fun fact: Legally, only certain states need to disclose if it is a haunted house ... not sure about TX, so be sure to bring your medium with you while house-hunting.

The pope's official barber, who cuts only the pope's hair, earns an annual salary equivalent to $250,000 (US).

The "M" on M&M's candies were stenciled by hand until WWII labor shortages forced the confectioner to automate the process.

Similar to bird poo, Bologna will also strip the paint off upir car.

That would be a really good thing to know about a home - but I wouldn't want to admit knowing that if I was the seller. (because I would assume it meant the seller owned/ran the meth lab). EEK!

Fact: You can poor a can of Coca Cola into your toilet and leave it sit over night - flush and it will clean your can completely. Which makes me worry about what it does to my insides and teeth!

99% of pumpkins sold in the US end up as jack-o-lanterns. Aren't you glad you're not a pumpkin; doomed to have your insides slowly carved out by some 5 year old, and eventually smashed on the road by some punk teenager????

I bet you can get a meth lab house for a steal, huh?

NYC cabs are yellow because the company's founder, John Hertz, learned from a study that yellow was the easiest color for the eye to spot.

This is a true story, but cabs are less easy to spot when they are flying through an intersection about to hit you. Just saying. In the words of Buddy the Elf: "watch out for the yellow ones, they don't stop."

Sure you're looking for houses in TX and not JeffCo in MO (The so-called Meth capital of the U.S.)? Wow.

MODG said...

this is BS. This is how I have to find out you are not moving to Nashville to be in Cat Club with me? What about your keytar practice? What about the whiskers? WHAT ABOUT IT?

Fun Fact: In our first townhouse, I called the popo on our neighbors for making meth in their garage and trying to sell it to Jeff.
