Did You Know?
  • A little trivia information

2
  • "Stewardesses"    is the longest word typed with
    only the left hand ...
  •  

3
  • And "lollipop"    is the longest word typed with
    your right hand.  (Bet you tried this out
    mentally, didn't you?)

4
  • No word in the English language rhymes with
    month, orange, silver, or purple.

5
  • "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in
    the letters "mt".  (Are you doubting this?)

    growing.

    (Now, you KNOW you're going to try this out for
    accuracy, right?)

8
  • The words 'racecar, kayak,
  • and 'level'  are the same whether they are read
    left to right or right to left (palindromes).

9

    have all five vowels in order "abstemious" and
    "facetious."

10
  • There are only four words in the English language
    which end in "dous" tremendous, horrendous,
    stupendous, and hazardous. (You're not doubting
    this, are you?)

11
  • TYPEWRITER     is the longest word that can be
    made using the letters only on one row of the
    keyboard.   (All you typists are going to test
    this out)

12
  • A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

13
  • A goldfish    has a memory span of three
    seconds. (Some days that's about what my memory
    span is.)

14
  • A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th
    of a second.

15
  • A shark    is the only fish that can blink with
    both eyes.

  • Almonds are a member of the peach    family.

17
  • An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
  •

  • Babies are born without kneecaps.  They don't
    appear until the child reaches 2 to 6 years of
    age. 

19
  • A snail    can sleep for three years.
  • (I know some people that could do this too.!)

    domesticated.

    abreast, the line would never end because of the
    rate of reproduction.

    for each gallon of diesel that it burns.

28
  • The microwave    was invented after a researcher
