    pants.
    15. Ketchup was sold in the 1830s as medicine.
    16. Upper and lower case letters are named 'upper' and 'lower' because in
    the time when all original print had to be set in individual letters,
    the 'upper case' letters were stored in the case on top of the case that
    stored the smaller, 'lower case' letters.
    17. Leonardo Da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other
    at the same time ...(hence, multi-tasking was invented.)
    18. Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War II
    were made of wood.
    19. There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos.
    20. The name Wendy was made up for the book Peter Pan; there was never
    a recorded Wendy before!
    21. There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with: orange,
    purple, and silver!
    22. Leonardo Da Vinci invented scissors. Also, it took him 10 years to
    paint Mona Lisa's lips.
    23. A tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion will make it instantly go mad
    and sting itself to death.

    26. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you can't sink
    in quicksand (and you thought this list was completely useless.)

    28. The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player
    for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was the
    Victrola, so they called themselves Motorola.
    29. Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to eat a piece
    of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. It's the same with
    apples! (Guess what I'm buying on my next trip to the grocery store?)
    30. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying!
    31. The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher.

    I make sure one of my girls peel the onions.

    A man was chopping onions for his friend. his eyes got all swollen and red. when his friend came back, he had only one phrase of empathy to offer... "I peel for you, man. I peel for you"

    Never fear, unless your dog eats baker's chocolate. Normal chocolate isn't harmful to a dog unless it has baker's chocolate in it.
