    I used to like going out to the railroad tracks and yelling at the freight trains going by the building where I worked. No one could hear me and It didn't do any good.
    Thank you Ralph.

    Your fact of the day for today, May 15th...

    When a rooster opens its beak to crow, it’s external auditory canals close off preventing sound from coming in and acting as “earplugs”. Which is especially handy since rooster calls can reach 140 decibels or louder (which is basically equal to a rifle blast, and will definitely damage your ears with no protection).

    Your fact of the day for today, May 16th...

    A California woman, Jeanine Sugawara, sued Quaker Oats, owners of Cap’N’Crunch, on the grounds of false advertising because Cap’N’Crunch Crunchberries did not contain one single real berry. The complaint was dismissed after the judge reminded her that there is no such thing as a “crunch berry”.

    If you ever get lost in the woods, don’t forget your munchies. Doritos are flammable and can be used as kindling to start a fire.

    Any steel used in Geiger counters must be from before 1945 so that it isn't contaminated with radiation from nuclear weapons. One of the primary sources for such steel is sunken ships from World War 2.

    The first roller coaster was invented at Coney Island as a way to distract people from sinful activities such as saloons and brothels. Lamarcus Thompson created it as a family friendly, sin free way to have fun. (Although there is some dispute as to wether he invented the roller coaster, or was just the best promoter of it at the time and got all the attention.)

    Just trying to get the facts straight as possible, don’t want someone quoting a fact and then someone else disputing it

    Your fact of the day for today, May 19th...

    The original version of “Beauty and the Beast” was a 1740 story by novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve which, according to children’s literature academic Maria Tatar, was written in order to encourage girls to accept arranged marriage. Oh...and the beast was also a hideous combination of an elephant and a fish.
