    On average, a person uses about 100 gallons of water a day, but only drinks about a half gallon per day.

    I assume that is water disguised in other beverages. I think that most of us don't drink enough plain water and instead drink it in the form of coffee, tea, milk and other beverages. Yes, I mean a daily shower uses up quite a few gallons of water I guess. That is an interesting statistic. Tidbits and factoids are my life!:) Thanks for posting!

    No one in Greece can choose to not vote. Voting is required by law for every citizen who is 18 or older.

    Hmmm, that is interesting Joe Riley, but I am not sure how it would work in this country. You might end up electing Donald Duck for something. So many people are disgusted it seems by conventional candidates not sure who might end up winning general elections. I think it would be awfully hard to enforce too. I mean is the sheriff going to be sent out to arrest all non voters? Of course, you can get in trouble by not serving on the jury if you are called to do so, so maybe it would work!

    @Joe Riley
    Truly a freedom-loving country, then, where the government forces it's citizenry to perform an act which should be chosen by the individual, as far as participating is concerned. Just my opinion. Frank

    @K E Gordon

    Here is one then, for you to compare with the 100 gallons per day personal average: our water is metered pretty accurately. During summer months, our average daily usage is twice that amount. A lot goes for watering the plants I strive to keep alive in this hot as "H", "E", "Hockey-stick", Hockey-stick" climate!

    On average an ear of corn has 800 kernels in 16 rows.

    After reading your post I did some research about these fascinating creatures. They're quite amazing.

    Bank Robber John Dillinger played professional baseball. FYI, I saw his death mask in the FBI building in Washington.

    Giraffes sleep for a maximum of two hours a day, usually ten minutes at a time.

    Lake Huron’s Manitoulin Island is the largest island in any inland body of water on the planet.


    That's where I live... Just off the Manitoulin in Massey......

    The real reason Pirates wore an eye patch was because...


    When they go to a lower deck with poor lighting, they could remove the patch and see better with that eye since it’s used to the dark, whereas the other eye would take several minutes to adjust to the change in light.

    Some people think that Shakespeare didn't really write those plays, they suggest that the plays were actually written by Christopher Marlowe. He was a noted English playwright of the time. The reference for this is the book "The Man Who Murdered Shakespeare." I don;t know, lots of evidence pro and con. I did read the book but I was in 9th grade at the time. More information is sure to have come to light since that time. One of histories mysteries?

    The first time an outline of a body was shown on a television series was in 1958 on the Perry Mason television series in the episode "The Case Of The Perjured Parrot".

    A 15 year old boy invented earmuffs in 1873. NOTE: He died in 1937!
