    not my original thoughts, nor do I attest to the validity, but very entertaining; (I don't believe the duck thing, or the ostrich thing)

    Did you know?

    It is impossible to lick your elbow.

    A crocodile can't stick its tongue out.

    A shrimp's heart is in its head.

    If the government has no knowledge of aliens, then why does Title 14, Section 1211 of the Code of Federal Regulations, implemented on July 16, 1969, make it illegal for U.S. citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles?

    In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere.

    LOL

    I can imagine you trying to pull your arm behind your head just to taste your elbow. Did you fall out of your chair trying? :p

    wow, I'll get my girlfriend to take a pic of me with the digicam cause I don't have one, but I won't see her for a few days, but I'll take this picture, and then you will all bow* to me...

    I actually made a guy at work almost throw up from showing him this display of double jointedness

    *Yeah, I guess deep down inside, I realize that elbow licking is sign of royalty or a source of power, but a guy can dream
