I'm Tired

Here are some fun facts for you. It's Sunday and I'm relaxing and don't feel like coming up with my own facts-so I stole these off the internet.

An astronaut can be up to two inches taller upon returning from space.
-Well, I'm going to space now, cuz I really need to grow.

There are more organisms on the skin of a human being than there are human beings on the earth.
-EW!

Lobsters have blue blood.
-So does my friend, Emily.

The embryos of tiger sharks fight each other while in their mother's womb. The survivor is the one that's born.
-Sharks are jerks.

Due to gravitational effects, your weight is slightly less when the moon is directly overhead.
-This could come in handy to all women...

The pupil of an octopus' eye is rectangular.
-I really think this is just cool.

Hawaii is moving toward Japan 4 inches every year.
-Why can't Canada be the one to move away from us?

Starfish don't have brains.
-Huh, neither does my ex-boyfriend.

By raising your legs slowly and laying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand.
-And this will be helpful since I come across quicksand so often... But really, who volunteered to test this theory?

North Dakota is the only state in the U.S. that has not had an earthquake.
-That's cuz it doesn't really exist. Seriously; have you ever been there? Do you know anyone that has? That's what I thought.

Hershey's kisses are called that because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyer belt.
-And they're my favorite candy. If you want to send me some, feel free. If you want me to send you some, comment---and I'll think about it.

The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube with a chocolate bar in his pocket and it melted.
-I wish I had a chocolate bar in my pocket right now...

Well, there ya have it. Random facts of the world.

You should definitely go to the moon, or mars or something. I've seen someone jump into quick sand - Bear Grylls. He's nuts. Who's your ex? I don't understand why I don't really like hershey kisses because I really like chocolate.

Thanks for including me in your list! And just for the record, I gave blood this weekend (thought of you) and as hard as it is to admit, you are right, my blood was red!!! tee-hee

Email me your address there and you just might get a Valentine :)

My sister-in-law is from North Dakota. She even wrote a paper about how people don't think North Dakota really exists, so it must exist now, right? But the really important thing is I commented so....I get chocolate right?

MISS YOU!!!

Did you mean me or your other friend Emily? Because I don't have blue blood, whatever that means. It's only an insult if I understand it. Oh and, I was sending an email to you *kiss, kiss*.
