3. Your stomach produces a new layer of mucus every two weeks otherwise it will digest itself.

4. The dot over the letter ' i' is called the title.

17.There are no clocks in the Las Vegas gambling casinos.

18.There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with orange, purple and silver.

19.A tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion will make it go mad instantly and sting itself to death.

21.American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class.

24.Guiness Book Of Records holds the record for being the book most often stolen from Public Libraries.

25.Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a space suit damages them. WTF!!!
