things you might not know

1. The world's youngest parents were 8 and 9 and lived in China in 1910.

2. Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king from history:

Spades - King David
Hearts – Charlemagne
Clubs -Alexander, the Great
Diamonds - Julius Caesar


3. 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321


4. If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle.


If the horse has one front leg in the air the person died as a result of wounds received in battle.
If the horse has all four legs on the ground the person died of natural causes. This is not true !

5. 'I am.' is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.

6. Q. What occurs more often in December than any other month?
A. Conception.


7. Q. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you could find the letter a?
A. One thousand.


8. Q. What do bullet-proof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers all have in common?
A. All invented by women.


9. Q. What is the only food that doesn't spoil?
A. Honey


10. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase 'goodnight, sleep tight'.


11. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month or what we know today as the honeymoon.


12. In ancient England a person could not have sex unless you had consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When anyone wanted to have a baby, they got consent of the King, the King who gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they were having sex. The placard had F.*.*K (Fornication Under Consent of the King) on it. Now you know where that word came from.


13. Last but not least: In Scotland, a new game was invented. It was entitled Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden and thus the word GOLF entered into the English language.
