I think we should start a new forum on this site about interesting facts or figures that we've either read about or learned somehow while on the road, be it in a book or just a little trick somebody taught you. It shouldn't have to do anything, the only requirement being maybe less than 100 words. I'm just the giver of an idea though, and have no knowledge of how to get such an idea rolling.

What do you think?

Did you know that the only part of your body that never grows from birth is your eyeballs? And that two parts of your body NEVER stop growing? (nose and ears)

(lets get this ball of useless triva rolling;))

And that your hair and nails don't stop growing for up to SIX months after you die!!

Hairy.

Good one Joz,
Did you know that the average American uses around 800 words in random telephone conversations, while the average British person uses around 5000.
Cheers

Hairy.

Actually that is a fallacy. Your skin actually retracts a little after death...giving the appearance of nail and hair growth. This is actually where people got the notion of vampires...or thinking the dead were 'undead' Fascinating stuff!

Have you ever seen the movie Gregory's Girl. There is a character in that keeps trying to pick up girls with the line, "You know when you sneeze, it comes out of your nose at a hundred miles per hour. Choo! just like that."

He is not very successful.

Did you know that the reason "rat poison" works on rats is because rats can not vomit..

Did you know that if you smile it supresses your gag reflex (and will keep you from vomiting)?
