How does a person undreamt something ? :rolleyes:
I just rewatched Avengers Infinity War last night, and had to laugh at this exchange...

Doctor Strange tries to explain the danger of Thanos to Stark, saying "He could destroy life on a scale hitherto undreamt of."

Stark seems to be stretching his legs and takes a jab at Strange's way of communicating. "Did you seriously just say hitherto undreamt of?"

Before rap battles, there was flyting. Flyting is a ritual, poetic exchange of insults practised mainly between the 5th and 16th centuries. The root is the Old English word flītan meaning quarrel. Examples of flyting are found throughout Norse, Celtic, Anglo-Saxon and Medieval literature involving both historical and mythological figures. The exchanges would become extremely provocative, often involving accusations of cowardice or sexual perversion.

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. :lol:

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).

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”.
