Well, if so, I am again reminded of that old admonition; "Don't believe everything you read on the Internet"

A Road Runner can only run 21 mph while a coyote can run 43 mph.

Dogs were used by the Soviet Union as anti-tank bombs during World War Two. Dogs were taught that food could been found under tracked vehicles. The dogs were kept hungry and with bombs attached, released to find approaching German tanks. A wooden lever would detonate the bomb on contact with the bottom of the tank. It was reported that over 300 German tanks were destroyed by anti-tank dogs.


A Slovak man trapped in his car under an avalanche freed himself by drinking 60 bottles of beer and urinating on the snow to melt it.


The Phillips-head screwdriver was invented in Oregon.

The distance to London from NY is less by arcing NE to SE than due East.

As for the Pensacola, Miami, Chicago distance issue;
The distance between Pensacola and Chicago as the crow flys is 784 miles.
The distance between Pensacola and Miami as the crow flys is 674 miles.

Pogonophobia is the fear of beards.

In the great San Francisco earthquake of 1906, three men were caught alive on the roof of a hotel that was ablaze. Rather than see the men fall and be burned alive, a nearby military officer ordered his men to shoot them.

Artificial Raspberry flavor is milked from the anal glands of a beaver.

A UK customs officer tried to get rid of his wife by waiting until she had gone abroad – and then entering her name into the “Do-Not-Fly List”. She was stranded abroad for 3 years.

In 1965, the city of Amsterdam started the White Bicycle Plan that provided free public bicycles for anyone to go from place to place. Within a month, most of the bikes were stolen or found in canals

Having a swimming pool at home is 100 times more likely to lead to an accidental child death than having a gun at home.

Beaver-butt flavoring is vanilla. We had a whole thread on that this summer.

A running treadmill under an airplane's wheels will prevent it from taking off.

A running blender under a helicopter will do the same.

ATM stands for Automated transfer method, not automated teller machine. Entering ATM into a search engine without a filter can lead you to a site where it has a VERY different meaning.

In my world it means Asynchronous Transfer Mode.

Whilw some of these posts are questionable, yours is really not. I hope you were only adding that as a joke, and don't actually believe it.

You can tell the age of a clam by counting the rings. Some clams can live to be multiple centuries old.

Similar to skyscrapers in the US having no 13th floor, hospitals in Japan have no 4th floor, due to the Japanese word for four being "shi" which is similar to "shini" meaning death.

The reason onions make you tear up is because the sulfur in onion juice mixes with tears to produce sulfuric acid, which your body is desperately trying to flush out.

A group of crows is called a murder.

A group of baboons is called a congress.

Next time you think humanity is boring, just remember that you are a ghost in a biological supercomputer piloting a robot made out of meat.
A congress of baboons, now that's funny!

NASA spent years and millions of dollars trying to produce a ballpoint pen that would write upside down. The Soviet Union had their Cosmonauts use pencils.


While the Soviets did indeed train dogs to carry mines to blow up German tanks, those mines were often magnetic. They stopped using dogs when they learned to the dogs could not tell the difference between German and Soviet tanks.

All of which I am sure Miley has licked.
