i actually think that the statistic of eating 10 spiders has to do with the allowable "extra bits" in processed foods. like 3 ppm rat feces etc. over a lifetime of eating, there are bound to be spider bits.

random fact...dogs only have 18 digits / toes

ummm...where are all my good little anecdotes when I need them? How often does trivia just well up in your brain randomly. And then when asked directly the mind goes blank. Grrrrr.

The only thing I can think offhand right now is the story of a theatre in London, maybe in the early 1900s. (Can't remember the date and name, so maybe that makes it not a "fact."). Every single seat in the whole theatre was full, except one. On stage, two actors were dueling with swords, and the tip of one of the swords flew off during the duel and embedded itself at neck-level...in the only empty seat in the house.

9 is the only digit that when multiplied by any number...all digits will add up to 9

9 x 9 =81.... 8+1=9

9 x 21 = 189....1+8+9= 18.....1+8=9
