17% of those who have a permanent tattoo regret getting it.

There’s a doll that poops and says “Sniff sniff, I made a stinky!”

An average 4 year old will ask about 200 questions a day.

Take two straws and place them in your mouth. Put the end of one in a glass of water, and leave the other exposed to the air. You will not be able to get enough vacuum to drink.


Mortal Combat was refused release by Australia.

Mothers Day was recognized by Congress in 1914.

There really is a village in Austria named this:

The Okie Corral


Human gene matched to other organisms:
Cat: 90%

A man and women lived for over 50 years in seclusion on a mountain top in a cave so they could be together. He hand carved 6000 steps into the mountain side so she could get down more easily.

When people lie, they tend to look up to their left. So if you’re lying, look to the upper right…..

There is a website to help you get your FBI, CIA or DEA file. Of course, if they don’t have one on you, they might afterwards…

About 40 billion songs are illegally downloaded each year.

In 2011, the UN declared internet access to be a basic human right.

I get your point, BUT....

Internet gives people access to info/education that they wouldnt have access to otherwise. The internet is arguably the most important invention ever. It really does aid in the advancement of society as a whole.

It instantly provides real time data of current events, along with communication, education, etc... It gives poor people or those of third world countries the access to harvard level courses for free. Pretty impressive.

After reading the book "Abundance", i realized some of these things. It also helped understand the reasoning behind "obama-phone" which i thought was ridiculous as well.

You forgot to mention that they get access to all the pron they could ever want.

But it all comes down to the question of "who is going to pay for it?"

Haha. True on both counts.

"We" will undoubtedly pay for it. But "We" also pay for a whole bunch of crap that we shouldn't be paying for......this one might be worth paying for.

No one has to pay for it, silly. The government will provide it for free!

city

noun (Concise Encyclopedia)
Relatively permanent and highly organized centre of population, of greater size or importance than a town or village. The first cities appeared in Neolithic times when the development of agricultural techniques assured surplus crop yields large enough to sustain a permanent population. Ancient Greece saw the creation of the city-state, a form also important in the emergence of the Roman empire as well as the medieval Italian trading centers of Venice, Genoa, and Florence. After the Middle Ages, cities came increasingly under the political control of centralized government and served the interests of the nation-state. The Industrial Revolution further transformed city life, as factory cities blossomed rapidly in England, northwestern Europe, and the northeastern U.S. By the mid-20th century, 30–60% of a country’s population might be living in its major urban centers. With the rise of the automobile came the growth of suburbs and urban sprawl, as factories, offices, and residences erected in earlier periods became aged and obsolete. Today many cities suffer from lack of adequate housing, sanitation, recreational space, and transportation facilities, and face problems of inner-city decay or burgeoning shantytowns. Local governments have sought to alleviate these problems through urban planning
Pretty much tells me a city cannot contain a population of 1, however a village, or maybe a town can.

Scared of Heaven? You have Ouranophobia.

AOL made 80% of its revenues last year off of senior citizens. How long have you had that AOL email address???

Your left or mine? Maybe everyone you think is lying is telling the truth and vice versa.

I remember a Nature or some other PBS show where skeeters only come out a short period of time. They swarm livestock and can kill them overnight from loss of blood.

Ah, the good old fashioned dictionary definition used by a good old fashioned harda...

What you fail to realize is that in today's society town/villiage/city are all synonymous with one another, and you can't try to be all cool and technical by breaking them apart.

Way to be super duper fancy trying to prove someone wrong and only making yourself look like a tool.
