Now I want to know who came up with these truths. Some are unbelievable.

I guess that's where saying 'God Bless you" came from whenever you sneeze!!! In hopes that the heart would start up again!! Flies lifespan is considerably shorter in my house - the flyswatter and my fly catching dog are always at the ready!!! Great list - hope your dog is ok!!

Pat said...

You are TOO much making us do this "quiz"....and some of those "facts" are NOT nice! Have a nice time at your daughter's house!

After I went through the list and said some had to be false I got to thinking about it and figured that they all had to be true--although some are really just NOT nice to think about!

To ooglebloops, as far as where the saying "God Bless You" came from, it actually came from people believing that when you sneezed that your soul left your body momentarily. In order to keep the devil from taking your soul, they would say "God Bless You" to keep you protected until your soul "reentered" your body. At least that's what I read somewhere a long time ago.

#12 How can you injure yourself with a toilet? Amazing! I am left handed so I guess I am one of the odd ones, seven percent.
