Monday is WTF? or EYEWWWWWW Day.

22 Sep
Sometimes I come across the strangest things. Some of them make me go WTF? And other times I think, "eyewww…." and so on and so forth, et cetera et cetera et cetera.
So, Mondays, when I am feeling organized, which most times I am not, but when I am feeling that organization, Mondays will be my WTF? days.
Here are some WTF? or Eyeww, or "isn’t that innerestin’" things that show up on my Google Page a "useless facts." Feel free to add your own in the comments section, if you so desire.
"Green" Tip of the Day: Try Catalog Choice if you want to stop those catalogues you do not want in your mailbox:
Healthy Living Tip of the Day: Low-Fat and No-Fat can sometimes sabotage your healthy eating diet. There are "good fats" out there, and as well Fats can satiate you; everyone needs a little treat sometimes! — same goes with Real Sugar vs "fake sugar" – somehow your body knows when you are cheating it and it will nag you until it gets what it wants so that many times you end up eating the "No Fat/No Sugar" item AND the Fat/Sugar item as well. Moderation and portion control are key.

During World War II, in May 1942, U.S. ice cream manufacturers were restricted by law to produce only 20 different flavors of ice cream. But to this date, no explanation for the law has ever been offered.



Rats can swim for a mile without resting, and they can tread water for 3 days straight.


Cats may copulate over 30 times a day. While a male feline may stalk a female for days at a time, once they mate, the entire sex�ual act only lasts a few seconds�not unlike certain humans!


Cockroaches can live for 9 days after their head has been cut off (and this was proven by science – they actually carefully removed the heads so they’d survive and then waited)….EYEWWWWWWWWWWW


The crocodile does not chew its food, but swallows it whole. It carries several pounds of small stones in its stomach to aid in grinding up and digesting its nourishment.


When medieval clans wanted to downsize and dispose of unwanted folks without murdering them, they just burned their houses to the ground as a small hint. Thus the phrase "to get fired"


A mated pair of rats can produce up to 15,000 babies in one year.

    The most useful fact for me was the one about the origin of "getting fired."
    Anyway – hi there!

    Somehow, I think I could have lived a very full life without those interesting if somewhat ugh(ly) facts.
