Trivia 4/18

Did you know ......
Skin cells live a maximum 34 days; some, only 14 days.
1. which two countries have the yang-yin symbol on their national flags?
2. what's the largest living creature without a back-bone?
3. in the 1959 film "ben-hur", who gives the title character water when he collapses from dehydration?
4. what uniform number did hank aaron wear?
5. june foray, the voice of rocky, the flying squirrel, was also the original voice for what gabby girl doll introduced in 1959?
6. what was the first "nebula" to be reclassified as a galaxy in 1924?
russians are happier with their sex lives than any other nationality on earth.
1. SOUTH KOREA, mongolia (malaysia)
4. 44 (24)
5. chatty cathy (??)
in 2003, DUREX, which manufactures and sells condoms world-wide, asked 350,000 sexually active adults around the world to respond to a questionnaire.
when asked if they were happy with their sex life, 90% of Thais answered "yes". lowest on the scale were the russian respondents, at 59%.
ironically, the poll showed that the russians ranked third (out of 34 countries) when it comes to frequency of sex, having sex an average 150 times a year. meanwhile, the happy Thas were ranked 29th, having sex only 105 times per year.


Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !

That's every other day. At some point, I'd be saying "I really need to pay the bills," or "we may have to squeeze one in while we're waiting for the dry cleaner."
