Did you know that there is an amazing amount of useless information in the world and my wife believes my brain is the repository for most of it?

Did you know an aspen tree grove in Colorado is duking it out with a giant underground fungus to be declared the world's largest organism?

Being a grouse hunter, my money is on the aspen...

 

That is awesome. I need to look into this.

Did you know my friend Jim can't say caruncles so he's been pronouncing it "cruncles" for the last 15 year's I've known him and because I don't want to make him to feel bad I've kept a straight face and never corrected him in all that time?

Did you know that if your wife dumps half a gallon of bleach into the toilet and you come along afterward and pee an almost equal amount that enough cyanogen chloride gas is produced that you can hear it forming (what's that sizzling sound?) and if you were sitting down instead of standing up so that you could take a break and read the new Cabela's catalog, you can inhale enough gas to experience cyanogen chloride gas poisoning symptoms of confusion and dizziness?

Just was telling a young man about this yesterday!  He grew up spanish speaking but had never thought about it.   (pretty sure that it is fairly universal...not just guate.)

Did you know that in Hungarian when the wife refers to her husband to someone else he is called " ur"  or "uram "  translation is lord or my lord.  :D

 

Did you know that the Hungarian partridge is called "fogoly" and it translates in to the same meaning as captive or prisoner.

I didn't know that!  

  BUT

If they are prisoners or captives, why are they so good at getting away from me?
