    A striped tiger has striped skin. A human brain slices similar to a loaf of bread. There is no such thing as the brown note... There is actually a pole at the north pole. There is no such thing as double- jointed people. Your tongue cells are the fastest regenerating part of your body. The first computer "bug" to jam up the works was just that- a bug... it was a moth. Honey never goes old or bad. Some water bottles have an expiration date on them. Shrews eat scorpions. Some fish, and most crocodiles, carry their young around in their mouth. A chicken is supposed to be a descendant of the T- rex. A porcupine can eject spines at will. Plecostomus's (fish) backs are plated with tough skin. A starry batfish actually walks on its fins. Scientists found an olm, a cave dwelling blind salamander thing. They thought it was dead, so they put it in a freezer at 21 degrees fahrenheit for about 3 years. When they pulled it out, it was still alive, and upon being dissected, they found it had consumed it's entire lower intestine for food, inside out. If our stomachs didn't produce a new layer of mucous every two weeks it would digest itself. In California, you can sleep in the kitchen, but cooking in the bedroom is illegal.

    Rule of Thumb:It is often claimed that the term originally referred to a law that limited the maximum thickness of a stick with which it was permissible for a man to beat his wife, but this has been discredited.[1][3] Although British common law before the reign of Charles II permitted a man to give his wife "moderate correction", no 'rule of thumb' (whether called by this name or not) has ever been the law in England.
