AT MOST, ELEPHANTS SLEEP 3 HOURS A NIGHT.
...........and Lions sleep about 17 hours out of 24.

1. Which Baseball star is nick-named "The Big Hurt"?
2. What is ALF's home planet?
3. who wrote "Rip Van Winkle"?
4. what coin, counting all its design variations, is the most numerous US coin ever minted? (over a quarter-trillion to date!)

5. Which country is the world's leading producer of olives?
6. The USA's best-selling passenger car for the year 1989 was, for the first time in auto history, a foreign car. What was the make and model?

7. Which College was home to the first stadium built especially for football?
8. What to you call a group of crows?
TRUTH OR CRAP ??
If all the DNA in your body were put end-to-end, it would be one and a half football fields long.

1. FRANK THOMAS
2. MELMAC
3. WASHINGTON IRVING
4. THE LINCOLN CENT
5. spain
6. honda accord
7. harvard
8. A "MURDER"
CRAP !!
Since the strands of DNA in one human cell stretch almost 6 feet, if all the strands of DNA in your body were put end to end, it would reach the sun and back over 600 times!!

(100 trillion cells times 6 feet divided by 93 million miles)
