ing sage observation: “A bank is a place where they lend you an
umbrella in fair weather and ask for it back when it begins to rain.”
* In 1938, Time magazine featured Adolph Hitler on the cover as
its Man of the Year.
* You might be surprised at some of the amazing feats that can be
accomplished with the aid of modern medicine. In 2008, two women
in India gave birth at the age of 70. With the aid of egg donation and
postmenopausal in vitro fertilization, Rajo Devi Lohan gave birth to
her only child, a girl. Charan Singh Panwar and his wife, Omkari Pan-
war, already had two daughters and five grandchildren, but they
wanted a son. Using the same procedure, Omkari had twins, a boy
and a girl.
* The first time a toilet was ever seen on television was in the pilot
episode of “Leave It to Beaver" in 1957.
* The most common name in the world is Muhammed.
* If you live in the South, home of huge roaches, you probably
won't be surprised to learn that a cockroach can live for a week
without a head. When the headless insect does finally die, it's from
starvation, not from the loss of its head.
* Those who study such things say that there are 45,000 chickens
for every person on the planet.

one way or other, to induce people to lie.” - Lord Byron
