    You should have told them them the consonants were silent.

    The highest scoring word in Scrabble is said to be "oxyphenbutazone" (a drug used to treat arthritis)
    EDIT: forgot to add, you get 1178 for that

    In 1920 for the first time in recorded history, the average life expectancy of human beings exceeded that of goldfish. Before that year, a newborn infant could expect to live 48.4 years. For many species of wild goldfish, the projected life span was over 50.

    Hmm, I'm out on a limb here but I seem to recall that it's impossible to fold a piece of paper in half, then in half again, etc, etc.....more than nine times.

    Go on, try it, you know that you want to!

    I think your punishment should be limited to entertaining us with a bit of useless information.

    Here's a bit of geographical trivia. The only bit of Africa that is now owned by a European country is the peninsula of Ceuta, which borders Morocco. Ceuta is politically a part of Spain.

    I'll take that....does this count.....

    I once lived in a 14th century house that has at various points in it's history been used as a bakery, a recording studio (the only band that I know for sure that used it is the Rolling Stones) and an adult movie studio!!

    In the marriage ceremony of the Ancient Inca Indians of Peru, the couple was considered officially wed when they took off their sandals and handed them to each other.

    I wonder if they can divorce by giving them back?
