    Random oddness

    Fighting boredom and trying to get through a slow, monotonous day, I've decided to start posting random things. So, here are 2 to start:

    Did you know that if you stick a pin lengthwise in your finger that blood will spray out? You could even paint your name on a wall with it.

    Tomatoes are a fruit, cucumbers are a vegetable, and George Bush is a lying sack of horse poopy....(personal opinion there)

    Fact1: Jsharr has athlete's foot.

    Fact2: Jsharr makes Explody Pup clean his feet naked while covered in peanut oil.

    Arabian horses have one less vertebrae in their back compared with other horses.

    Secretariat had a heart that was much larger than a normal horse's heart. No wonder he won
    as many races by as many lengths as he did. He was just running with a bigger engine!

    1. true

    2. true, but only one of us is naked and the other is covered in peanut oil.

    When firing the Dual Elites, every shot with the right ****** will go slightly to the right, and every shot with the left ****** will go slightly to the left.

    Which means, if your aim is good, you will hit your target approximately 0% of the time.
    Ten tenths.

    I neglected to mention which athletes foot I have, this was not an oversight on my part, it was intentional. I have had it for several years now. Ever wonder why a star running back would just retire mysteriously.

    As a side note, it takes much less effort to hack through an ankle with a butcher knife than you would imagine.

    Are you kidding? The ONLY good bourbon is made in Kentucky! Knob Creek, Wild Turkey, Makers Mark.... All wonderful examples of hillbilly craft and strategery.

    Thanks ok, it's kind of like how the only good beer is from Boston or Canada...lol. Once again, an opinion.

    Furthermore, the reason we should be glad that toothpaste was invented in the South is because, had it been invented in the North, it would be called "teethpaste".

    If you put an egg in a microwave, turn it on, and run it for about 4 hours, when you get back, you'll most likely find Dan Quayle and a box of ******* Jack inside.

    And every shot within 6 feet of either side of an opponent with an AWP will ZOMG headshot.

    Aiming is optional and not necessary with the AWP.

    You can find wolf spiders at night by holding a flashlight on your forehead pointing out in front of you. When you look out on the ground you'll see bright shiny "diamonds", which are the reflections from the light in the spiders eyes.

    The light source has to be close to your eyes to work.

    Oh, and you'll be amazed at the number of spiders in your yard, like thousands!!!!!!!!

    Jack Daniels is distilled in a dry county. "No samples for you."

    Next thing you'll be telling us is that okra is a vegetable.

    Well, okra is indeed a wonderful thing. But to call it a vegetable, with all of its talents...tsk tsk. One should give credit where it is due I always say.

    So, okra, though indeed a bit fruity, is certainly smarter than a vegetable. Or, errr, something like that. Anyone for a game of New Jersey roulette, in which there are 5 glasses of water on the table, and only one is safe to drink (as in, bottled, and brought from Iceland)?

    That does, in retrospect, actually confuse the benaturus out of me: are tomatoes indeed fruits or are they vegetables, likewise for cucumbers?

    Uggh...and I thought becoming a vegetarian would be easy.

    Botanically speaking they are both fruits. In the case of Tomatoes they were legally classified as a vegatable over 100 years ago in a tax issue over wether or not they were fruit or vegatable and how they should be taxed. The Supreme Court classified it as a vegatable based upon its common usage as a vegatable.

    So if I can get the supreme court to declare cows and pigs and chickens and fish vegetable, then can I be a vegetarian?

    But don't pigs already fly? I mean, Dr Laura, "Dr" Phil and Ann Coulter have all been in airplanes, haven't they?

    If your chest tastes like bacon, and your hair tastes like your shampoo, then what do feet taste like?

    cheese
