Yes, and when someone runs around in circles all crazy-like, they are said to resemble a "chicken without a head" because when a chicken's head get's chopped off, the rest of the body still runs around.

Yea, I kinda already knew that....that works with Turkeys too.

Did you know, that a bullet to a pigs head doesn't always kill it instantly?

I kinda found that out when we tried to kill a pig for meat. (I was about 9ish).....

i am sure they had 2 (each)... the second one is just not "fallen" into the scrotum, this kind of problem can be solved with a simple surgery (usually at early age, i am not sure if that's a rule).

Did you know that every night, the average amount of dreams an average person has are 5-15? But people only remember the dream that happened right before they wake up, unless they use a special technique called dream recall, with this you wake up after every dream you had and remember it in detail... It almost worked for me! It usually takes 2 nights to get right though... But it's pretty cool when it works and you get up in the morning and see how many dreams you had!

Also... There are two types of dreams, normal ones in black and white, and ones in full color, which only happen once or twice a night, sometimes none...

The number of the devil is 666... Aleister Crowley used the number 777 to describe how "wicked" he was...

In honor of Repeal Day, here's some interesting facts about beer that I've picked up over the years:

Beer may be responsible for human civilization. When ancient Mesopotamians invented agriculture, some of the first grains they grew were those that could be brewed into beer. Beer was an efficient way to store the nutrients in grain for long periods as the alcohol acted as a preservative. So they began planting the grains they grew for beer together to make it easier to produce this valuable product. Voila, agriculture is born! Agriculture means a permanent home and a permanent home means civilization.

Your typical microbrewery produces less beer in a entire year than one of the industry's giants (Millern, Bud, Coors) spills on the floor in a single day.

Despite it's dark color, Guinness is actually a light beer.

Most of the hops used to brew beer in the United States is grown in Washington State.

As we all know, in 1620, the Pilgrims came to America. They were headed for Virginia but cut their journey short and landed in Massachusetts . The reason? They were running low on supplies; namely beer. Remember how I said beer preserves nutrients with it's alcohol? Makes it a great commodity when crossing the Atlantic. The Pilgrims were running low, so they saw Cape Cod and said, "Close enough."

Centuries ago, families brewed beer for their children. Beer was a common component of one's daily diet for reasons already stated. Children were given so-called "small beer". After the regular beer was brewed, people took the grains it was brewed from and brewed them again. The result was a concoction with nutritional value and less alcohol.
"I'm sorry, son, you can't go out and play until you finish your beer."

Some are relating beer beginnings to Egyptian civilisation (besides mesopotanians).

Also i've heard that vikings use to drink the beer warmed.. i think i can figure out why :)

The first commercially available transistor radio was made by a company out of Indianapolis called Regency, and used components made by Texas Instruments.
