You cannot fold a piece of paper in half seven times. Go ahead and try.




Note that Mythbusters finally found a way to beat this, but it required a sheet of paper half the size of an airplane hanger, a gang of people and a steam roller.

It's impossible for anyone to put their elbow in their ear. Don't even try... whoops, you tried it, didn't you-

The United States had three different presidents in 1841. The first one, Martin Van Buren, finished his term as president in that year. The second, William Henry Harrison began his term as president but caught a cold and died, thus becoming the president serving the shortest time in office (4 March to 4 April 1841). The third president, John Tyler, then became the first vice president to succeed to the office of the presidency.

gerald ford is the only person who was never elected to either vp or president, yet he served as both.

From the book 'Anguished English', in the section about parents writing school excuses for their children:

"Please excuse Ray Friday from school. He had very loose vowels."

"Please excuse Pedro from being absent yesterday. He had diahre dyrea direthe the $hits." (some letters substituted)

"Please excuse Tom for being absent yesterday. He had diarrhea and his boots leak."

During the Wife Carrying Championship, held annually in Sonkajärvi, Finland, contestants carry a woman -- it needn't be their wife -- over an 832-foot course with various obstacles en route. Dropping the woman incurs a 15-second penalty, and the first team to reach the finish line receives the grand prize -- the weight of the "wife" in beer! This bizarre event traces its origins to the 19th century when a local gang of bandits commonly stole women from neighboring villages.

And a peanut is not actually a nut. It's a vegetable.

Whenever someone tells me that ". . . I'm surrounded by idiots . . ." usually in reference to a work or family situation, my first thought is always:

How dumb are you to end up surrounded by idiots?

True... often it IS the one in the middle that is the biggest idiot....
Recently, I took the bottom shelves out of my garage fridge and put in a 16 gallon keg.
This required a one-time deposit (I like to call it an 'investment") of $70... $30 for the keg, and $40 for the tap. 
When the keg was empty, I got my $70 bucks back.  What an idiot!
