If your skin is not innervated, it will not wrinkle. Glabrous skin doesn't have hair.

In Germany, shaking hands with the other hand in a pocket is considered impolite. In Mali, men shake hands with women only if women offer their hand first. The handshake is often done with the left hand touching the other person's elbow as well.

The term "bank teller" originated in the wake of the 1929 stock market crash, when banks began hiring low-paid workers to "tell" throngs of frantic depositors that their money was gone.

Anyone convicted of animal cruelty in Sedalia, Missouri, is sentenced to a month's confinement in the county animal shelter.

The great pyramid of Ghiza is believed to be a tomb but to date no mummy, body or sarcophagus has been found. In fact the only place Hieroglyphs have been found in the pyramid is in an 8" shaft behind 2 limestone doors adorned with 2 copper pins each.

In Zanesville, Ohio, there is a bridge that you can drive across, and still be on the same side of the river. You can also go to the middle of the bridge and turn right or left.

In addition, the Great Pyramid is perfectly aligned N, S, E, W, is a perfect pyramid, has all sides equal length, is actually 8 sided (yet this can only be seen on the 'nox' from directly above), and is located at the exact center of the Earth. It is part of a larger complex which perfectly mimics Orions Belt, which 2 of the shafts in the Great Pyramid point directly to.

The rate of snowfall to rainfall is 4:1, typically (depends on density of snow).

Santa Claus, as you know him visually, was the creation of Thomas West, who also created Uncle Sam, and the refinement of Norman Rockwell years later. He was first used to advertise in 1840 in a Macys ad. He is derived from 2 characters of the past, Sinterclaus and St. Nicholas, the latter of which was known for gift giving. In the original stories of Saint Nicholas, he was followed by Krampus, a hairy, horned, cloven demon who beat bad children with a switch after St. Nicholas had given gifts to the good ones.

If I could find my book, it has all types of factoids. Pyramid Quest, don't remember the author. Crazy stuff about the pyramids.

Krampus, St Nick, and kids:

Attachment 190365

And a fact...
The 3 largest States, California Texas and Alaska, compose nearly 30% of the US.

I believe it. I just wonder who is WV was smart enough to figure that one out!

Btw, you're right, that wasn't cheating

Factoid:
Massive copper mines have been located in the great lakes region, particularly Michigan, in which blocks of copper larger than a bus were believed to have been extracted whole from the Earth. All native tribes within reasonable proximity to these sites are known to not have mined or be concerned with Earth minerals. The time these are believed to have been occupied at directly coincides with the rise of the Bronze Age in Europe, roughly 3500BC to 500BC, in which large amounts of fine copper appear in Europe for use in bronze items. The amount of bronze objects generally thought to be used leaves a desperate shortage over Europes actual copper deposits, and those deposits are of inferior quality to the actual copper items found. They are of a higher quality, similar to what naturally occured in the lakes region. It is as if a great mariner society, experienced in mining, excavated the US, floated it down the Mississippi, and on to Europe. While there are Mississippi River Delta settlements that date to this age, and likely were "restock" points, no civilization is known to have been able to accomplish this.

You mean the UGA G and the off color UGA G?

AND A FACT, CAUSE SOME OF US POST EM IN HERE!!!! Nobody in particular, turbo. Nobody. Rotflmao. Just messin with ya man.
In Europe, being hospitalized is generally referred to as being "In hospital" vs the American notion of "In THE hospital", which really makes more sense. You don't say in the hospice, you say in hospice, with the inferrence being "in hospital care" or "in hospice care". The lazies dropped the word care, and we now say "the" to fill the otherwise seemingly awkward gap.

True story: at a buddies house and wife asked him how she looked in the dress she put on. Without missing a beat he said "moooo"
I dunno how much trouble he was in but I would guess a lot.
