Now you're repeating people. And too bad Pluto ain't a planet anymore. And "nurple" rhymes with purple. And the one mile out of every five of interstate highway being straight is weird and symbolic of just a little bit of paranoia. (I've been reading back a few pages......)
The reason for req. of 1 mile per 5 being straight was so there would be landing strips in the event that airfields were bombed. Eisenhower did have the benefit of experience in that when he got ready for the final push to get the system built. (That, and he was the logistics officer on at least one cross-country convoy for the Army in the 1930s and was appalled at the quality variance of roads in the country. One unified system built to the same specs for rapid transport was his goal)

Stars Do Fall on Alabama

Stars Do Fall On Alabama

The Sylacauga meteorite fell on November 30, 1954 at 2:46pm on the town of Sylacauga, Alabama. A fragment of it crashed through the roof of a frame house in Oak Grove and injured Ann Elizabeth Hodges (1923-1972) on the left hip. It is the only documented extraterrestrial object to have struck a human being.

It is impossible to lick your elbow.


You cannot keep your eyes open when you sneeze.


You can stop someone's yawn by putting your finger in front of their mouth, as if you were going to stick your finger down their throat, doesn't work if you try it on yourself tho.


For the math lovers :roll: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:

111,111,111 x 111.111.111 = 12345678987654321.

You can, but your eyeballs will pop out.

If it doesn't stop the yawn, at least it will be in TECHNICOLOR

Look what happens if you multiply:
123,456,789 x 2 = _______________
123,456,789 x 4 = _______________
123,456,789 x 8 = ________________
123,456,789 x 16 = _______________ (add a zero!)
123,456,789 x 32 = _______________ (add a zero!)
