Those are pretty cool! Nice find. Some of those are very interesting.

I think it's funny that George Washington grew weed. And that 10,000 birds die each year from flying into windows.

A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate.

I guess I better tell one of my friends this...he bought a ferret a month or so ago, and I'm pretty sure it's female. :-o

The lighter before the match is just terrible...but interesting.

Why would Cleopatra have worn a fake beard...unless they meant the other beard. ;-)

Brazilian wax for some...not for others? :-?

Apples are more efficient than coffee to keep you up in the morning. That I am going to have to try. Though I wonder how smelling bananas will help you lose weight? :-?

Maybe it tricks your mind into thinking that you are eating it, but you are only smelling it. So therefore your stomach would get full, but you wouldn't be putting any food in your belly so you wouldn't gain any weight. :-?
