useless information… but still fun to read

★ When the moon is directly overhead, you will weigh slightly less. (Need to remember to weigh myself at this time)

★ An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain. (I know a few people like that, and most of them insist on leaving reviews on books for everyone to read)


★ “I Am” is the shortest complete sentence in the English language. (Indeed)

★ A “jiffy”, is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second. (Won’t be telling anyone that I’ll be back in a jiffy anytime soon)

★ No word in the English language, rhymes with month – orange – silver -or- purple.


★ Shakespeare invented the words “assassination”and “bump”. (I will check the veracity of this one)


★ The names of all the continents end with the same letter that they start with. (Never thought about that)


★ The sentence, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” uses every letter in the English language. (useless)


★ The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (and very useful too)


★ The word “lethologica” describes the state of not being able to remember the word you want.(happens to me all the time)

★ TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard. (considering that nobody used them anymore….)


★ The dot over the letter “i” is called a ‘Tittle’. (don’t forget to title your i’s)
