Little "factoids" amuse me. I love hearing things that make you shake your head and go, "WHAT?" And not in a political way, either! Just little snippets of info that make us smile and amuse us...
My favorite: It is a law in France that you have to provide your toilet to anyone who suffers from Crohn's Disease. Seriously, sufferers have a card issued to them by their doctors that oblige anyone who is the lucky recipient of a knock on the door to provide use of your restroom. Can you image having a total stranger knock at your door and you have to let them in??? Well, it is France, after all.....
*SPAM makes excellent furniture polish (Uh, I'll pass!).
*SPAM can steam-proof your mirrors. When showering rub spam on your mirrors. (Uh, don't think so!).
*SPAM makes excellent fishing bait (Now that might work!).
*Peanut butter: Former senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, once shaved with peanut butter while on a camping trip (for best results, avoid shaving with extra crunchy!
*Grease a car or truck axle. George Washington Carver developed axle grease from peanuts. (I think Jiffy Lube might be cheaper!)
*Bait a mouse trap with peanut butter! Unfortunately, I know this works!
*Coca-Cola: Clean a toilet bowl. Pour a can of Coke into the toilet bowl and let the Real Thing sit for one hour, then brush and flush clean. (When do you add ice?)
*Remove grease from clothes. Empty a can of Coke into a load of greasy work clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular wash cycle. (These "handy hints" sure aren't cheap!)
*Shaking up a bottle of Coke for use as a douche immediately after sexual intercourse has been considered an effective method of contraception among the uneducated. It does not work. (Holy Krap! Wonder when they caught on - after the 9th or 10th kid?)
"Every cloud has a silver lining, and soon they'll
figure out how to tax us for that, too...."
