The Useless Facts

A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes

That blob of toothpaste on your toothbrush is called a nurdle.

More people are killed each year by donkeys than in airplane crashes.
Hippos are responsible for more deaths in Africa than any animal.

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

Most American car horns honk in the key of F.

Banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour.

The little plastic end of your shoe lace is called an aglet.

73.27 percent of statistics are made up.

Penguins have knees.

The Humpty Dumpty rhyme never says he was an egg.

Pipe thread and marine shafting use the same angle of taper.

That front wheel on a grocery cart that rapidly flops back and forth is often referred to as a mumphrey.

Sony makes a cassette tape that can store 185 terabytes of data. That's 185,000,000,000,000.

In Arkansas, it's illegal to incorrectly pronounce 'Arkansas'.

Humans cannot fart while asleep.

The strongest muscle (Relative to size) in the body is the tongue. << one for SP !!

@bea u

"- did you pee at 3:30? / what time did you wake up?"

LOL... Every morning at 3;30 for me! When I get up to go, Nancy always stirs and mumbles: "What time is it?" My answer (depending on the time), is like "I'm 15 minutes early" or "I'm a half hour late". She says: OK, thanks.

Every night (day) like clockwork....

PEE Tracker Night-Poll - did you sleep through the whole night or Not (meaning trip to bathroom Loo) ?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

What is the origin of the word ‘loo’?
https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/ex...f-the-word-loo

There are several theories about the origin of this informal British term for a toilet. The first, and most popular, is that it derived from the cry of 'gardyloo' (from the French regardez l'eau 'watch out for the water'), which was shouted by medieval servants as they emptied chamber pots out of upstairs windows into the street. This is historically problematic, since by the time the term 'loo' is recorded, the expression 'gardyloo' was long obsolete.

A second theory is that the word derives from a polite use of the French term le lieu ('the place') as a euphemism. Unfortunately, documentary evidence to support this idea is lacking.

A third theory refers to the trade name 'Waterloo', which appeared prominently displayed on the iron cisterns in many British outhouses during the early 20th century. This is more credible in terms of dates, but corroborating evidence is still frustratingly hard to find. Various other colourful theories also circulate, involving references to doors numbered '00' or people called 'Looe'.

More about theory #2:

"The French euphemism “lieux” (pronounced “loo,” from “lieux d’aisance,” meaning “places of comfort” or “comfort stations”) might well have been picked up by British soldiers in France during World War I (1914-17). The period between the war and the first appearance of “loo” in print would be about right for armed services slang to percolate into general usage."

Not nearly as much fun as this one:

“The Perfect Summer” by Juliet Nicolson, page 80, reads: “Lady Louisa Anson, an intimidating guest at Viceregal Lodge in (Victorian) Ireland, was so rude to the Viceroy’s children they stole the name card from her bedroom door and slid it into the holder on the door of the water closet. The lady was not amused when the maid persistently misdelivered her morning tea. The story spread and from then on people needing a discreet reason to excuse themselves would announce they were off to visit Lady Loo or as it became known simply ‘The Loo’.” Could this be true? — Roger Baker.

Absolutely not. I’ve removed a few of the question marks you appended to your query for emphasis, but your incredulity is richly justified. That story is nonsense. I must say, however, that it is curiously attractive because it exhibits several of the key elements of a successful urban legend. There’s the presence of the aristocracy, always a winner. More importantly, the snobby rich person gets her comeuppance at the hands of the downtrodden (albeit also rich) children she has wronged. And the whole tale centers on the socially taboo subject of toilets. No wonder the author was suckered by that story."

Good...day, chickens! (SP - is that better?)

Quote:
^^ He loves his snuggle blankets, what a spoil...LOL...great pic.
O'h RADAR and his nature walks / that's some darn good dog activity...to come.
- 30^F up here in Canada, right now / nice warm spell coming, this week

Kelly was never a sleep-in girl, mom & her got up at 7:45 am.
- she spent the next 5 minutes, standing on my side of the bed
- in total quiet and holding a toy, for Dad / sometimes the faintest nose touch, come on Dad, holding my eyes shut
- when Kel is up, no one gets to sleep in... ...she'll stand there, as long as it takes
We gotta have blankets! We have no furnace in this s***ty old house we live in (SO was supposed to do that months ago, but we know how men are... )The one pictured is one of his favorites, though. He likes the fuzzy, snuggly ones. When I leave for work in the morning, he gets tucked in on the couch in the "turdin' up" (is that Kenny's phrase?) position in this blanket for his morning nap. On the weekends, we nap together.

We love our nature walks, we live about 1/4 mile from a trail going all around a pair of nice, clean lakes. Unfortunately, they are part of the drinking water system, so we can't swim . It's a great spot to see swans/sandhill cranes/herons, as well as squirrels and other woodland creatures. We will be going there A LOT this summer - we only got to go once before winter - I wanted to wait until his shots were done - I don't know how many dogs/other animals are usually down there. Eventually (once he remembers what recall is...), it will be a great place to practice off-leash work with distractions. I don't think many people know the trail is even there, I've never seen anyone on it before. There is a nice fishing area where the lakes butt up against each other, so there will be a good opportunity for more socialization work.

He's usually pretty consistent, waking me up some time between 6:30 and 7:30, but once we go through the whole eating, pottying, playing, training routine in the morning, he is ready for a nap by 8:30-9:00. I happily oblige on the weekends and snuggle up with him so we can watch some Netflix while SO sleeps in.

Radar is not allowed on the bed - there's no room for him and I can't stand dog hair in the bed. He's lucky to get the couch, and that's mostly because I like to snuggle He will stand touching the side of the bed (with the noxious gas cannon pointed my direction) if he feels I'm a little too slow getting out of bed, and do his famous nose-whistle whine until my arm emerges from the blankets and gives him some butt-rubs and pats. He doesn't generally bring toys into the bedroom, but if he doesn't receive proper lovin' in a timely manner, he knows how to burrow his head into the covers and let all the cold air in.

Oh the horror! Such violence on TV!!
RE Kelly and her toy......

There's no better alarm clock than a silent dobe stare.
And if the stare doesn't work, there's always sneezing, violent ear shaking, whining, or face-licking. If that doesn't work, pound your paws on the floor until the human gives in (it won't take long).

I left mine in fleece coats (Meadowcat makes them individually using your dog's measurements) if I was worried about them getting cold in the house. Toasty warm, the design covers the chest, washable, designed for the boys to wear outside (if you know what I mean)--you can even get snoods. They're made with dobes in mind so they're nice and roomy for those big chests

Not sure if that would completely take care of the need for blankets.....but it seems like Radar *might* be old enough he's done with a lot of his growing. See her facebook page.

Or you can wait til next year when he's just about grown out.....do you think the furnace will be done by then????

They're made with dobes in mind so they're nice and roomy for those big chests Not sure if that would completely take care of the need for blankets.....but it seems like Radar *might* be old enough he's done with a lot of his growing.

Or you can wait til next year when he's just about grown out.....do you think the furnace will be done by then????
I am planning to order a MC coat for him for next year - I didn't think he would even get this big....and he still has a way to go until he's a "big boy". He grows so fast, I'm thinking of adding "Mr. Ed" to his list of nicknames...

I think he likes the blanket because it is warm, and because he likes to feel "snuggled" - we keep the bedroom pretty warm with heaters, but he still sometimes wants to be wrapped up tight.

It freakin' BETTER BE done by then.

We gotta have blankets! We have no furnace in this s***ty old house we live in (SO was supposed to do that months ago, but we know how men are... )The one pictured is one of his favorites, though. He likes the fuzzy, snuggly ones. When I leave for work in the morning, he gets tucked in on the couch in the "turdin' up" (is that Kenny's phrase?) position in this blanket for his morning nap. On the weekends, we nap together.

We love our nature walks, we live about 1/4 mile from a trail going all around a pair of nice, clean lakes. Unfortunately, they are part of the drinking water system, so we can't swim . It's a great spot to see swans/sandhill cranes/herons, as well as squirrels and other woodland creatures. We will be going there A LOT this summer - we only got to go once before winter - I wanted to wait until his shots were done - I don't know how many dogs/other animals are usually down there. Eventually (once he remembers what recall is...), it will be a great place to practice off-leash work with distractions. I don't think many people know the trail is even there, I've never seen anyone on it before. There is a nice fishing area where the lakes butt up against each other, so there will be a good opportunity for more socialization work.

He's usually pretty consistent, waking me up some time between 6:30 and 7:30, but once we go through the whole eating, pottying, playing, training routine in the morning, he is ready for a nap by 8:30-9:00. I happily oblige on the weekends and snuggle up with him so we can watch some Netflix while SO sleeps in.

Radar is not allowed on the bed - there's no room for him and I can't stand dog hair in the bed. He's lucky to get the couch, and that's mostly because I like to snuggle He will stand touching the side of the bed (with the noxious gas cannon pointed my direction) if he feels I'm a little too slow getting out of bed, and do his famous nose-whistle whine until my arm emerges from the blankets and gives him some butt-rubs and pats. He doesn't generally bring toys into the bedroom, but if he doesn't receive proper lovin' in a timely manner, he knows how to burrow his head into the covers and let all the cold air in.



And if the stare doesn't work, there's always sneezing, violent ear shaking, whining, or face-licking. If that doesn't work, pound your paws on the floor until the human gives in (it won't take long).

"do you think the furnace will be done by then????"

UHH! LMAO!

NO?

OMG!

I'm still waiting for the booth at the flea market thing to happen. When I bought my house, the previous owners left a lot of stuff. Mister has been talking about the flea market for at LEAST a year and more!

I feel sorry for you Rad's Mom, as I am cold natured. I've still got my Carhart coat on in the house as we are conversing.

RAD - I assume the furnace you need, is Natural Gas.

If so - here is Beau's 2 cents.

IMO - RUUD (#1) and KeepWright (#2) / avoid Carrier & Lennux (< proprietary & expensive parts).
- another brand is dirt cheap, but low grade...only new home builders, use the crap
- go with a 2 speed DC (direct drive) motor
- installs in Canada, range from $3,500 to $7,000
- I get a reliable RUUD, at the lowest price / helps a friend, does my work

Other options is if SO, has a friend in the trade / some even buy new unit off E-Bay, at discount prices.

Central Air units - older 14 SEER ones, are best / the highest SEER rating (in the 20's), has too many computer boards & prone to constantly need repaired..electronics too complicated, and Technicians struggle to fix them properly.

Quick Funny here, y'all!

I just figured, yet, another thing out about my cameras. I am hilarious in fast motion!

I gave myself a black eye when I slipped off the couch arm!

Still laughing!

I've got to figure out where Mister was so I can watch him in fast motion!

LMAO!
