    Did you know?

    The fear of ....

    * cats is ailurophobia - my girlfriend has that
    * clowns is coulrophobia -several Forters have that
    * decisions (making) is decidophobia - I think my sinister has that
    * lightening is astraphobia - many dogs have that
    * war is traumatophobia - many in the Middle East are experiencing this

    and if you have a fear of long words, you suffer from hippopotomonstrosesquippedalio phobia.
    That's enough to scare anyone! Even a hippo!

    Did you know: To prevent crying when you cut an onion, cut it under a running tap of cold water. You can also put the onion in the freezer for ten minutes before you cut it.

    From the TV series "St Elsewhere":
    Ed Begley, Jr.'s, character got carried away with the de-fib paddles, and zapped a patient before Denzel Washington's character was clear. Begley's character said, "Well, the patient has a purple nurple on his nipple, and Phil wet his pants, but otherwise there's no harm done."
