Another man thing huh!!?? 

Did you know....

Barbie's measurements if she were life size: 39-23-33.

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.

The slogan on New Hampshire license plates is 'Live Free or Die'. These license plates are manufactured by prisoners in the state prison in Concord.

No animal, once frozen solid (i.e., water solidifies and turns to ice) survives when thawed, because the ice crystals formed inside cells would break open the cell membranes. However there are certain frogs that can survive the experience of being frozen. These frogs make special proteins which prevent the formation of ice (or at least keep the crystals from becoming very large), so that they actually never freeze even though their body temperature is below zero Celsius. The water in them remains liquid: a phenomenon known as 'supercooling.' If you disturb one of these frogs (just touching them even), the water in them quickly freezes solid and they die.

The forward pass was created by the football team at Saint Louis University.

All of the cobble stones that used to line the streets in New York were originally weighting stones put in the hulls of Belgian ships to keep an even keel.

Interesting huh... roll

Re: OBSERVATIONS

Also interesting to note:

There was a dirt clod on my property in the shape of Richard Nixon's head.

I stepped on it.

Re: OBSERVATIONS

Some of these may not be considered observations exactly, but I enjoyed them.


1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for
I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me
the hell alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a
leaky tire.

3. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your
neighbor's newspaper, that's the time to do it.

4. Don't be irreplaceable. If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

5. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

6. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car
payments.

7. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

8. Give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish,
and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

9. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was
probably worth it.

10. Don't worry--It only seems kinky the first time.

11. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

12. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving.

13. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

14. We are born naked, wet, and hungry, and get slapped on our ass...then
things get worse.

15. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on
the same night.

16. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too
seriously.

17. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.

Short people, especially short women put their seat in a recline position on an airplane.

Which results in ouch! no leg room behind them.

Re: OBSERVATIONS

Boo, can you please explain the phenomenon of a rotary to me?  I still can't figure it out after all my visits to "the cape"!  It never fails, once we hit the rotary at Buzzards Bay, we're caught in a never ending loop of wrong turns.  LOL!  Thanks for the good chuckle.  I must say, you massholes, certainly know how to have fun at your own expense.  Except when a certain someone (who shall remain nameless - okay - Sixft9) is gloating about the Pats going to the Superbowl!  Now, don't get all in a huff -- you kind folk from New England -- I happen to like the Pats -- always have.  I route for the Colts due to a misguided sense of duty to my husband who is a long time fan.  A post about massholes would not be complete without a cheer for the Patriots in the Superbowl.  GO PATRIOTS!  LT :-)

Lived here all my life and I could still feel my heart rate increase whenever I'd  find myself approaching that rotary.  NEVER move to the inner circle or your SCREWED!   Problem with that theory is that pretty much EVERYONE else in the rotary is following the same theory,,,so all the cars are staying to the right and not letting anyone ENTER in the first place!

The Bourne bridge is a breeze since they built the connector to 495--so my buzzard bay rotary days are behind me now--screw sagamore bridge--I do the BOURNE baby!!

AND there are plans underway to build a bypass for that buzzardbay mess...so in a few years no more hassles getting to the cape!(except of course for the 10 mile back ups of traffic(even without the rotary confusion!!)

Just an addition to the Rotary fun of Eastern Mass:
  The cars in the rotary have the right of way.  Cars entering by law should give right of way, lol

Re: OBSERVATIONS

Okay, I need help again, my dear tall friends. . . What in the heck are those little bars of strength under your screen name and how come I only have 2?  <_<   Have I failed to be good enough?  Have I not been a good friend?  Can someone give me strength bars or do I have to earn them like a badge of honor like you mighty, much more experienced users?  I feel somehow -- less than -- inept -- bankrupt.  Please help me - oh mighty ones.  What can a girl do to increase her strength bars????  I feel desparate and weak.  LT  :wacko:

Re: OBSERVATIONS

Everyone starts with one square until you reach 20 posts; then you aquire a second. That lasts until you reach 100 posts at which point you aquire a third square and the right to change your title. At this point I can only assume that a fourth square comes at 1000 posts, however since no one on this forum has reached 1000 posts to date, that remains to be seen. Whether or not there are more than four squares is unknown.

Re: OBSERVATIONS

I might be a little weird, but I love rotaries.  smile  They're starting to spring up all over the place here in Connecticut.  It's fun to mess with the passengers in your car as you keep doing laps around the rotary.

I think I if ever came up to this roundabout, I'd just abandon my car and walk to my destination:

Re: OBSERVATIONS

International Thinking at it's Best

Question: What is the truest definition of globalization?
Answer  : Princess Diana's death.

Question: Why?
Answer
An English Princess, with an Egyptian boyfriend, crashes in a French tunnel; riding in a German car, with a Dutch engine, driven by Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey. They were being chanced by Italian paparazzi, on Japanese motorcyles. After the crash she was treated by an American doctor, using Brazillian medicines. This is being typed by an American, using Bill Gates' technology, and you're probably reading this on a computer that uses Taiwanese chips and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant. Transported by Indian truck drivers hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen and trucked to you by Mexican illegals......

That my friends, is Globaliztion
