As you age, your eye color gets lighter. The average chocolate bar has 8 insect legs in it. Hawaii is moving toward Japan 4 inches every year. Marilyn Monroe had six toes on one foot. If you keep a goldfish in the dark room, it will eventually turn white. Women blink nearly twice as much as men. The dot that appears over the letter "i" is called a tittle. Cranberry Jell-O is the only flavor that contains real fruit flavoring. More people study English in China than speak it in the United States of America (300 million). And the grossest of them all, a ten year old mattress weighs double what it did when it was new, because of the -ahem- debris which is absorbed through the years. That debris includes dust mites (their droppings and their decaying bodies), mold, millions of dead skin cells, dandruff, animal and human hair, secretions, excretions, lint, pollen, dust, soil, sand and a lot of perspiration, of which the average person loses a quart per day. Good night! Tell me what you think of these. Pretty useless but interesting I think.

Why do we drive on parkways? And why do we park in driveways? Did Marilyn Monroe really have 6 toes? You know what that means. Hawaii will reach Japan in 800,000 years. Just guessing really. I have used 9 tittles so far. 10 counting that last sentence. Oops 11.

The chocalate bar and why would it have insect legs in it ? I 've heard that about the goldfish but not sure it's true or not as the same with Marilyn Monroe. I don't really believe the English is studied more than spoken in the US. The mattress , that's really disgusting and just plain eewww, My mattress is 3 years.
