I love these random facts, thanks for posting them.

The only one I knew was, Honey wont go bad.



Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks or it will actually start to digest itself.

I wonder if there are conditions where this takes place and if doctors have a way of stopping this if it happens?



If one places a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go crazy and start stinging itself to death.

This one is pretty crazy, I wonder why it reacts like that?



Bulletproof vest's, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers were all invented by woman.

Male ego for each,

I don't need a bulletproof vest, I can dodge anything.

Fire escapes are for wimps, just run through it or put it out.

Honey I can see just fine through a rain soaked window in a down pour, I wont pull over.

Ah I don't have one for laser pointer, maybe just point with the finger and guess what I'm pointing at, after 3 guesses just throw something at what I'm pointing at.



The three things pregnant woman dream of most in there first trimester is frogs, worms, and potted plants.

This one is interesting.

They're all good facts, good ones to have in your arsenal for conversation when someone starts busting out the random facts.

Orange - sporange a very rare alternative form of sporangium (a botanical term for a part of a fern or similar plant).

Silver - chilver, which is something to do with female lambs.

Purple - Hurple, to hobble along with one leg dragging, half way between a walk and a crawl. Also Curple, Leather strap passing under the tail to stop the saddle slipping foward or the rump or hind quarters of a horse.

(hehehe)
