The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.


Rule of thumb

In the 1400s a law was set forth that a man was only allowed to beat his wife with a stick that was no thicker than his thumb. Hence we have "the rule of thumb".

I've heard about this before!

Good one!


edit: I meant the one about the jumbled up words, not the wife beating one.

They were gonna have it be that he couldn't beat her with any stick thicker than his penis, but they couldn't find a stick that thin.

From my old cop days, a favorite was "its not the length of the barrel but the size of the bullet!"

I bet the people who wanted serious discussions (as opposed to postwhoring me -- and I'm not really a top notch postwhore either... ) wanted it stopped. It would have been so much fun...no one knowing what the hell anyone else was talking about! Took all the fun out of the place!

Same topic!?

Hey, listen....we ask people to look through a list of bands in other sections of the forum before posting new threads....anything else?
