    My breath will condense and freeze on my beard only if the temperature is 20F or colder.

    I heard about this very recently and found it very interesting: The San Andreas fault, is slipping at a rate of about 2 inches every year, causing Los Angeles to move towards San Francisco. Scientists forecast LA will be a suburb of San Francisco in about 15 million years.

    That the Law and Order was first offered to CBS, but they turned it down and NBC picked it up. That C.S.I. was turned down by ABC and CBS picked it up. American Idol was first offered to UPN but ended up going to FOX.

    Did You Know: Stephanie weighs less than 100 pounds, so if a random manhole cover fell on her, she'd probably be totally squished!
