    queenb: Now you got me wondering which direction my water goes: in the sink, in the toilet, in the tub.... I'm gonna check and see if it's counter-clockwise because I'm in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Did you know that the number: 8,549,176,320 is the only number that has all the digits arranged in alphabetical order.

    Did you know that only "facetiously" and "abstemiously" are the only words that use all the vowels, including y, in alphabetical order?

    Of course I know!
    Facetiously - (adv.) in a facetious manner
    Abstemiously - (adv.) in an abstemious manner


    Seriously, Facetious - with humor, tongue-in-cheek, witty
    Abstemious - with temperance, non-indulgent, especially regarding food & drink.


    On topic:
    Did you know that James Smithson, whose fortune, bequeathed to the U.S., and used to found the Smithsonian Institutions in Washington D.C., had NO ties to the U.S.? He was born in France and raised/educated in England.
    His will stipulated that if his only heir, a nephew, died without children, his fortune - around $500,000.00 at that time - was to be given to the U.S. to be used to advance knowledge.

    Tada: Have you been to XXX Root Beer for a burger? Is it good there? I just noticed you're in Issaquah.

    Back on topic:
    Did you know that if no young were lost, a single pair of cottontail rabbits, together with their offspring, could produce 350,000 rabbits in five years. That's a lot of Easter bunnies!!!!!!
