Worthless, Interesting Information You Can't Live Without

A friend sent me an email containing the following information:

Pearls melt in vinegar.  Who found that out?

The three most valuable brand names on earth:  Marlboro, Coca-Cola, and Budweiser, in that order.  The three most worthless brand names on earth:  General Motors, Chrysler, and Toyota, personal opinion.

It's possible to lead a cow upstairs but not downstairs.  What's a cow doing in your house anyway?

Humans are the only primates that don't have pigment in the palms of their hands.  But in the South, humans always have a little pig in the palms of their hands.  Along with barbecue sauce.  And some chicken wings.

Ten percent of the Russian government's income is from the sale of vodka.  The other ninety percent is from tax on the sale of vodka, comrade.

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.  Not true.  The names L'month, J'orange, L'silver, and J'purple do.

A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.  I bet Elmer Fudd knows.

The longest recorded flight of a chicken was thirteen seconds.  Waiting at second fourteen was Colonel Sanders.

Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously.  And it doesn't taste good on deviled eggs, either.  Trust me.  Use paprika.

James Doohan, "Scotty" on Star Trek, was missing the middle finger of his right hand.  I bet Captain Kirk had something to do with that.

The list goes on:  never follow a possum across the road, any conversation beginning with the word "Look" is going to end badly--very badly, when you answer the phone and the caller asks for you by your complete legal name--hang up, etc. 

All things we need to know.  And use.
