Seven Vital Pieces of Information Useful for Every Occasion

According to Michael Sadowski, the key to successful blogging is making lists.  And since my recent posts have been getting a little frivolous, I will attempt to return to gravity and give  you these seven important facts. Use them wisely.

Thomas Edison was afraid of the dark.

Firehouses had circular stairways to keep horses from climbing the stairs.

“Kemo sabe” means “soggy shrub” in Navajo.

A pregnant goldfish is called a twit.

Bugs Bunny was originally named Happy Rabbit.

Banging your head against the wall for one hour burns 150 calories.

Toto’s real name was Terry.

23% of all photocopier malfunctions are caused by people photocopying their butts.

    At least your list was much more useful than mine. And funnier.

      Do you realize how you spelled the name of the almighty. Are you some kind of heathen horse hater? (alliteration is my god)

        Oh boy, Richard. I think I’m gonna be in big, BIG trouble. I’ve been “visiting” and commenting on pro-Rmoney blogs. I’ve been exceedingly polite and reasonable.

        The damn horses were a nuisance clomping up and down the stairs, taking the polish off the treads and whinnying about every little thing. It was distracting. I wish I’d known about the spiral staircase sooner.

        Love alliteration, have to be careful I don’t OD on it.

          I’d call it slumming. But as long as you’ve been polite and reasonable, beginning each comment with “Dear Shithead Sir” it’s probably all right. Alliteration will make an alliterate out of you and me, or something like that.

      Twas cheap and wasted. OHS was happy to see me — all of us — go. UofU loved my 300 a year tuition. 300! But look what they gave me.
