    Useless trivia

    Did you know that...

    Penguins can jump as high as 6 feet in the air

    The word gymnasium comes from the Greek word gymnazein which means to exercise naked

    Chicago came from the Indian word Shika'ko, meaning skunk place

    The combined weight of all earthworms is 10 times more than the combined weight of all humans

    Eucaliptis contains a narcotic & that's why koalas always look so sedated

    More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes

    A U.S. backed government study found that pigs can become alcoholics

    China has more English speakers than the United States

    Non-dairy creamer is flammable

    Speaking of koalas, I always anjoy sharing this piece of useless knowledge...

    Koala bears have unique fingerprints, like humans, and in fact, koala fingerprints are indistinguishable from human fingerprints.

    Koala bears have no eyelids, and cannot blink.

    Now, don't you feel more informed?

    That's true. But Gene Simmons and JR probably can.

    Wow. Suppose I train a crew of bankrobbing koalas. They'll leave their little prints all over the place. Assuming nobody sees them, I've committed the perfect crime. Silly police will be looking for people.
