    that's actually pretty interesting...

    the muscle that controls sneezing also controls orgasms.. so the way you sneeze supposedly has a direct correlation with your verility... (for the dimwitted ones: it you tend to sneeze 2 or 3 times in a row... .. .)..

    my roommate will usually sneeze about 9 times in a row.. i can't help but to giggle at it.. you'd think i'd grow up by now..

    recently masturbated and failed to wash their hands.

    6. In a lifetime, 22 nosey workmen doing work in your home will

    of getting a cold sore from one of the guests. Mouth herpes.

    Sow bugs [aka "pill bugs," or erroneously "doodle bugs"] are not little armadillos. Sow bugs are isopods not insects. What is an isopod you may ask? An isopod is a crustacean. Shrimp and crayfish are crustaceans also. Do sow bugs taste like shrimp? I don't know. I have never eaten shrimp.

    The word "Fact" comes from the Latin "Factum"- which sounds similar to "Fucked 'em". It also used to mean "Something that has happened/has been done". It's modern meaning of "this thing which is true" only came about during the 16th Century.
