I've always heard that also. Wonder if true? Someone also told me the "cross-walk" button on street corners is similar deal. Just for show and to keep people occupied. Walk signal will come on simply when the traffic light pattern is correct....not because you are pressing a button.

What about hitting the call button over and over when you're waiting in the hall?  That still speeds up the elevator, doesn't it??   ::)

In Uruguay, biting an opponent during a soccer match is also legal under the same circumstances

In 2007, it was estimated that 22 per cent of living Australians (21 million) had a Convict ancestor. Contrary to popular belief I was not one of them.

That is the dumbest, silliest movie ever and I was on the floor wetting myself laughing the first time I saw it. Inside this bod lies the soul of a 12 year old. A really, really immature 12 year old.

Here's my fact: A praying mantis has one ear.     I had to look long and hard for that piece of fascinating trivia.

Heres a fact. George Noory breathes through his anus and defecates out of his mouth.

Fecal vomiting (aka stercoraceous AKA Gnooraceous vomiting) is a kind of vomiting, or emesis, in which partially or fully digested matter is expelled from the intestines into the stomach, by a combination of liquid and gas pressure and spasmodic contractions of the gastric muscles, and then subsequently forcefully expelled from the stomach up into the esophagus and out through the mouth and sometimes nasal passages. Though it is not usually fecal matter that is expelled, it smells noxious. Alternative medical terms for fecal vomiting are copremesis and stercoraceous vomiting.  Copremesis like all emesis may lead to aspiration. However, if contents of the large intestine are aspirated, severe or even fatal aspiration pneumonia results, secondary to the massive number of bacteria normally present distal to the ileocecal valve.

Bruce Dickinson (Lead singer of Iron Maiden) is not only an airline pilot, but an expert fencer; known to have planted ten miles of picket fencing in one hour on his own*...



*No, not that kind of fencing.

The hide that goes into Rolls Royce cars comes only from bulls, to avoid stretch marks...and the field they live in has no barbed wire to avoid damage. Mr Henry Royce was the engineer, and to the day Rolls Royce engines in Derby is known as 'Royce's' by it's staff as an acknowledgement of the engineering brilliance of old Henry.
