Fun Fact Friday.

Welcome to Friday, people.


You guys have been doing really well lately with the facts. It's been almost TWO WEEKS since I have been forced to read the "it's impossible to lick your elbow" nonsense that I got for several weeks in a row. Golf claps to all of you.

This week we have exciting new changes to FFF. Each week, I am going to feature the best and the brightest (read: the one I like the most) Fun Fact from the week before.


Today's Favorite Fun Fact comes from a reader that doesn't always comment, but when they do, they make it count:

And in honor of Go Texan Day:



Happy Weekending!

Fun Fact: In ancient Egypt, priests plucked EVERY hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes.

I think the lady that did my brows this week was going for this look. That's why I had to lay the smack down on her. Do I look like an ancient Egypt priest?

Don't answer that.

I googled fun facts b/c I am not creative enough to come up with anything off the top of my head and this is what I found...
"Women who went to college are more likely than high school dropouts to enjoy both the giving and receiving of oral sex."
Random? Yes. But whatevs.

Einstein couldn't speak fluently when he was nine. His parents thought he might be retarded.

Jane's fact makes me want to go in the bathroom right now to test the ear lobe/nipple fact!

Fact: During different times of your cycle you are attracted to different types of men. Sometimes more rugged, sometimes more clean cut.

This makes sense considering one minute I think Brad Pitt is amazing looking even with his strange homeless man goatee and then a week later I want to ralph when I see it.

Happy Weekend and Happy Go Texan Day!

If you ask an Alien to his face if he's an Alien, he has to tell the truth.

It's illegal to drink beer out of a bucket while you're sitting on a curb in St. Louis.

I found this once and many thoughts cross your mind, like who drinks beer out of the bucket, and why would the people of St Louis care?

in maryland it's illegal to have a penis bigger than 8 inches - i would really like to know how they ever planned on enforcing that - horny, lonely women???

Completely random knowledge + potential for an award = I AM ALL OVER THIS.

The word VANILLA comes from the Spanish word vainilla, a diminutive form of vaina, meaning "sheath," which is in turn derived from Latin vagina.

I just blew your minds!

Odontophobia is the fear of teeth. (And apparently this affects almost ALL of my patients.)

According to suicide statistics, Monday is the favored day for self-destruction. (Totally understandable.)

It is believed that Shakespeare was 46 around the time that the King James Version of the Bible was written. In Psalms 46, the 46th word from the first word is shake and the 46th word from the last word is spear. (Coincidence? I think not.)

The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly. (It was me actually.)

The international telephone dialing code for Antarctica is 672. (Prank calls start NOW.)

When snakes are born with two heads, they fight each other for food. (Fucking sick is what that is. But I'd like to watch...)

The largest number of children born to one woman is recorded at 69. From 1725-1765, a Russian peasant woman gave birth to 16 sets of twins, 7 sets of triplets, and 4 sets of quadruplets. (Slut.)

You're welcome.

I'm from Kansas so I knew there had to be some crazy laws. Looked it up.

In Wichita before proceeding into the intersection of Douglas and Broadway a motorist is required to get out of their vehicle and fire three shot gun rounds into the air.

In Topeka (the state capitol) you can't sing the alphabet in the streets at night or haul a dead chicken across Kansas Avenue.

Be prepared if you ever make it to Kansas!

There are more chickens on the Earth than people.

Animals are popular symbols in many Asian cultures and Singapore has taken the fictional "mer-lion" as its namesake. The mer-lion is a creation of the Singaporean tourist board and was only adopted as a national and city symbol in the last 50 years.

They straight made it up. Because they can.

AWESOME.

P.S. The Asian cowboy conflicts my soul and vagina.

In a scary movie you must shoot the bad guy at least 3 times in the head and even then he probably wont be dead.
