Strange facts

Why is all leather not waterproof? I mean do cows discolor and shrink in the rain?

Butterflies taste with their feet.... so when they land on you they are just trying to eat your soul.

The elephant is the only animal that can't jump... So I think that all games where you can't jump the main character should be replaced with an elephant. So that when people complain and are like "why can't I jump?" I can say "dude you're an elephant."

Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older... yet it seems about 1 in 2 piss me off on a daily basis.

Women blink nearly twice as much as men (this is an actual fact)....This is why you are terrible drivers your eyes are closed twice as much as ours.

A sail can sleep up to three years... I can sleep up to three hours a night.

The cigarette lighter was invented before the match... Seems kind of like a backward step.

Something I learned when I was bored then looked it up to confirm. A quarter has 119 groves on its edge a dime has 118.

101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don't die throughout the movie... That's kind of messed up if you think about it.

Both parents are alive and well in Disney’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ ‘Mulan’ ‘Hercules’

For a non-Disney Pan unlike any other:

Crap I think you're right. But are they in the movie or just mentioned? And Hercules doesn't count his Dad is a God I get a free pass for all immortals. But thanks for the comment,

Sleeping Beauty's parents are both majorly in the movie. It's been a while, but I think Hercules as has adopted mortal parents, so he's got two sets of each! ;)

me,myself, and I said...

If only I were a snail
