Stuff you didn't know

To “testify” was based on men in the Roman court swearing to a
statement made by swearing on their testicles.

A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.

“Dreamt” is the only English word that ends in the letters

There is a seven letter word in the English language that
contains ten words without rearranging any of its letters,
“therein” the, there, he, in, rein, her, here, ere, therein, herein.

Donald Duck’s middle name is Fauntleroy.

Alfred Hitchcock didn’t have a belly button.It was eliminated
when he was sewn up after surgery.

Telly Savalas and Louis Armstrong died on their birthdays.

The dot over the letter ‘i’ is called a tittle.

More stuff you didn’t know.

I have to disagree with the goldfish having a 3 second memory span. I have a 4000 gallon pond with 65 goldfish 6 to 7 inches long.

These fish when they see me, come swimming toward me, because they know I will feed them, they will follow me around the pond until I do feed them.

Big Whoop you might say, well Gold fish are bottom feeders, and I use floating pellets. If they didn't remember, then they wouldn't follow me, nor would they come to the top to feed.

If my wife and I walk up to the pond and walk opposite directions around the pond, the fish will follow me, because I feed them on a daily basis, where as my wife works out of town and is gone for 4 days at a time, the fish know were there meal ticket is. My wife also feeds the fish but I do feed them 80% more then she does.

If a raccoon, blue heroin or kingfisher happens to molest the pond or try to eat the fish, they will not follow me but rather hang out at the bottom of the pond for several days where it's deep enough to stay away from pray.

They do however have extremely good hearing, and become skittish if my neighbor mow's his lawn, or start darting around if a loud noise happens within 800 feet of the pond.
