    Here's a few things you don't

    My daughter sent me this. She has accused me of being too cussed smart in the past so she works hard at keeping me humble. (like I need help)

    1.The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as a substitute for blood plasma.

    2.No piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times. (try it)

    3.Donkeys kill more people annually, worldwide, than plane crashes.

    4.You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching TV

    5.Oak trees do not bear acorns until they reach 50 years of age.

    6.The king of hearts is the only king without a mustache.

    7.The first product to have a bar code was Wrigleys gum.

    8.American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating 1 olive from each salad served in first class.

    9.Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise. (Venus is also associated with the fairer sex, what does that tell you?)

    10.Apples are more efficient at waking you up than a cup of coffee.

    11.The first owner of the Marlboro tobacco compnay died of lung cancer. So did the first Marlboro man.

    12.Walt Disney was petrified at the sight of a mouse. (go figure that one out)

    13.Pearls melt in vinegar

    14.The three most valuable brand names in the world are Marlboro, Coca Cola and Busweiser, in that order.

    15.You can lead a cow up a stairs but not down.

    16.A ducks quack doesn't echo and no on knows why.

    17.Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least 6 feet away from the crapper to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush.

    And the best for last (drum roll here.............)
    and I'll bet Milne didn't know this.........
    .......... .............

    18.Turtles can breath through their butts!

    There! Now you all know everything there is to know.

    These are great

    I remember learning the one about the cow by watching an episode of "Hill Street Blues" about 20 years ago.

    Most of the rest are news to me.

    I knew

    I knew or had heard 2,4,5,6,7,9,11,12,13,15,16,17. The rest were news to me. I know, I know, get a life!

    I am a killer Trivial Pursuit player though.

    Don't believe #16

    I hear quacking echoing off the walls constantly

    "Mythbusters" did a thing on the ducks' quacking, and they actually proved that there was an echo. But they had to work for it. Sound guys, digital recordings, etc.

    When it comes to #4, you can really go through calories by sleeping in front of the TV.

    Won't walk down stairs very willingly, either. That's why fire stations put poles in from the sleeping quarters to downstairs instead of stairs- in the old days when horses drew the fire wagons the horses would occasionally get loose, go upstairs, and they'd have a HECK of a time getting 'em down!

    Or watching TV...

    Oh, wait, those are INCOMING calories.
    Sorry :)

    barns have ramps and stairs are kept narrow too.

    What made the observer think the turtle breathing was bi-directional??

    Did the firemen slide up the poles to get upstairs?

    Especially New York's Best, can do anything as far as I am concerned!

    Nah, they had a springboard and jumped up through the hole. No stairs needed!!!

    I think the old timers slept upstairs with the hay. Most stables I have seen just have gates at the stairs to keep the horses from climbing up.

    Part Turtle?

    I wonder if they are sure about that. I can "breath" at both ends but only "Exhale" at one of them. :-)

    Beg to differ


    Coca-Cola still world's #1 brand
    Traditional brands are still on top of Interbrand/Business Week's list (pdf) of the world's most valueable brands 2004. Coca-Cola is still #1 and no new brands have entered the top 20. Thirteen of the top 20 brands have increased their brand value.

    Finnish Nokia slips down two positions to #8, but is still the highest ranked non-US brand. The highest ranked Swedish brand is IKEA at #40, with a 4% increase in brand value.

    Competition in the technology sector troubles some, but creates wealth for others. Both winners and losers are IT brands or affected by the development in new technology. Big winners are Apple, Amazon.com, Yahoo! and Samsung, losers are Kodak, Nintendo, Nokia and AOL. Also glad to see that my former employer Accenture slowly has climbed into the top 50, which is quite good for a brand that was launched only 3 and a half years ago.

    The ten most valueable brands 2004 are:

    #10 Apples versus Coffee?

    While sitting down to our AM coffee ritual yesterday, I mentioned the item about an apple waking you up better than coffee.

    My Susan took a sip, closed her eyes, sighed and said, "Apples my a**!"
