Did you know that the smell in natural gas is added by the gas company? They add it to the otherwise odourless gas so you can detect a leak. It's supposed to smell like coal gas. Natural gas in Denmark has a similar, but noticeably different smell.
Our gas company changes the 'perfume' every month so that you won't get used to it and not know when you have a gas leak.

16 hours of sunlight cause Ferrets to go into heat.

Age of goldfish is determined by the rings in their ears.

Pregnant goldfish are called twits.

Does it count if they have their navel pierced, too?

That the average keyboard on a computer has 104 keys. (Seems like 500 when you have to clean them.)

My education wass filled with mental abuse. I was the one who got all the A,s. But even the teachers had an attitude toward me. When everyone else got the answer wrong, the teacher would call on me with a nasty tone. I learned by the fourth grade to hide my smarts. I never raised my hand if I knew the answer.

What a shame that a teacher would stoop to that level in a classroom! Of course, classrooms have changed a LOT since you and I were in one as kids, Addie. They couldn't pay me enough to be a teacher now. Kids today seem to be less respectful of others. I don't blame them for being disrespectful to our leaders...very little about our leaders promotes any respect.
