    The term is only used when they are scratching each other's backs like this.
    (By the way, yes my Dad does know better)

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

    I'm sorry, Fan, that's just not true.

    Women and men do not differ in their rates of spontaneous blinking (M.J. Doughty, 2002, Optom Vis Sci), averaging around 10 blinks per minute in a laboratory setting.

    Did you know that ice tea was invented by an Enlgihsman, Richard Belchyden, who started out trying to sell hot tea at the St. Louise World's Fair in 1904. It was a very hot day and business was slow, so he served the tea cold and it became the popular drink it is today!

    Can you imagine if he named the drink after himself: I'd like an iced cold Belchy please!

    Apparently.. if you hiccup 7 times, you will hiccup 63 times. But if you hiccup 6 times they will stop.

    My mum heard is on the radio, so now when I get the hiccups I count LOL
