Did you know No: 4



Well hello Monday, it is a nice day as well, today's here are today's weird facts...........................

In 1991, Ferdie Ato Adoboe of Ghana ran the 100 yards in 14 seconds, not a spectacular time but he was running backwards, damn if I tried to run backwards I would end up on my ass............

Annoyed at people falling asleep during concerts, composer Joseph Haydn wrote the Surprise Symphony it is mostly a slow, quiet and soothing piece but has sudden loud bits to catch sneaky nap takers unawares..................dman

It was once thought that a person lost in the woods and starving could obtain nourishment by chewing on their shoes as leather has enough nutritional value to sustain life for a short time.

Avocado trees have been known to collapse under the weight of their fruit, bloody hell..............

Bacteria is the tiniest fee-living cells, are so small that a single drop liquid could contain 50 million of them............bloody hell

Interesting Jo-Anne.
Can very much relate to the music - when having piano lessons some years ago I would play soft music and the teacher would falls asleep :) then came the ending which was rather loud and up she would wake, always made me laugh to myself.

Story 1- I'd be right down there beside you. Prolly even if I ran forward.

#2- Perhaps Hayden should have looked in the mirror and just composed some peppier songs!

#3 Reading history as I do I hear a lot of stories like that- and worse.

#4- Instant guacamole!

#5- but they only have one bathroom to share, lol!

My mother remember Washington's teeth - surprising as she was terminally ill and bed-ridden .. just amused her I guess .. but she always remembered!
