    Well, sometimes...


    Did you know...the old adage that a dog's mouth is cleaner than a humans is false? Researchers at Stanford University found that on average, a human mouth contains 37 types of bacteria. At the University of California, reserchers found that on average, a dog's mouth contains 53 types of bacteria. Also, contrary to popular tales, a 1988 study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine found that humman bites do not have a higher rish of infection than animal bites--both are around 10%. The danger rate only goes up if untreated.

    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    I read that recently too, Queenb. I wondered if they originally thought human bites were more infectious because people are less likely to wash them and treat them than they are for a dog bite.

    Here's a little personal trivia.

    1) "Stargazer" is typed using only the left hand.
    2) The "s", "t", "e", "r", "d" and "n" are wearing off of my keyboard.

    I can understand the first four letters, as I use them all the time. But way not "a" or "g"? And why happened to "d" and "n"? Wth? So I guess add a "What don't you know?" to my "Did you know?"

    Did you know that a more durable ink is used to print the "a" and "g" keys than the "s', "t", "e" and "r" keys on a QWERTY keyboard? Also the 'd" and "n" are the least durable of all.

    Unk. I was taking you seriously through half of the first sentence.

    Did you know that the 13th day of the month lies most frequently on Friday?

    Here's the distribution of where the 13th of the month lies over a 400-year period of the Gregorian calendar:
    Sunday: 687
    Monday: 685
    Tuesday: 685
    Wednesday: 687
    Thursday: 684
    Friday: 688
    Saturday: 684

    I'm using the 01:02:03 04-05-06 in my classroom and the kids are loving it! Did you know that Black men born in the US today stand a one in three chance of going to jail? America spends $10 billion on pornography every year - the same amoount it spends on foreign aid.
    Count your blessings!
