Sorry, but couldn't resist.

Did you know that you can't unscramble scrambled eggs

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.

Re: The Did You Know Thread.

Did you know:

That cows do not have any upper teeth although they graze up to 8 hours a day, taking in about 45 kg (100 lb) of feed and the equivalent of a bath tub full of water. A healthy cow gives about 200,000 glasses of milk in her lifetime.

And that twelve cows are known as a "flink."

That that is not true. I grew up on a ranch, raising cows. Check the picture, those would be the "upper" teeth attached to the skull.

Re: The Did You Know Thread.

...that water going down a sink drain turns clockwise or counterclockwise depending on what hemisphere you're in?

To a student: no,no,no...straighten then brake.
