    In comic strips, the person on the left always speaks first.

    After an incident that results in fatalities, airlines usually change the flight number of that particular route.

    All major league baseball umpires must wear black underwear while on the job (in case their pants split).

    Not true, but if the person on the right speaks first, their balloon will usually be higher.

    I had a fun "did you know?" day at school today... we did the etymology of the days of the week. Sun day, Moon day, the rest are Norse gods except for Saturn day (Roman god)... Tyr's day, Wodin (sometimes known as Odin)'s day, Thor's day, and my favorinte...Friday is named after the goddess of love - Frigg (later known as Freyja). This is important information for middle schoolers once they are done rolling on the floor laughing.
