    Joe I never knew that about earmuffs..... ...:) but whoever wrote that got a it a little bit wrong....the date of birth at the top has him living until he was 115 years old...lol...altho' in the text it does say he died in 1937 which is correct. Sounds like so many people who had no schooling went onto become veritable geniuses..

    Men are 6 times more likely to be struck by lightning than women! I like that! :)

    Wonder why though.

    Two days after they die, ants give off an odor which other ants pick up on. They come pick up the ant and carry it to an ant graveyard.

    "The term bangs originally referred to a hair cut bang-off (straight across at the front), although the term is now applied to diverse forms of hair styling. It is probably related to bang-tail, a term still used for the practice of cutting horses' tails straight across.". "Bangs, also called a fringe outside of North America".

    A Mexican town had frogs that fell from the sky in 1997. Maybe the whole it's raining cats and dogs thing, should be changed to frogs! :D Frognado anyone??:p
