Facts, Facts, Facts

Hamilton's face is on the ten dollar bill Vice President Burr killed him in a duel What if they solved things like that today The office would always be for renewal Over 5 billion crayons are made each year Methinks governments buy most of them Peter the Great taxed people who wore a beard Tax doubled if they were other than men Diamonds will break if hit with a hammer Here's a solution if you allow me to add Thrash 'em with wet noodles if you so desire Though their brilliance may diminish a tad Bet you didn't know that Antpitta Ridgleys Are most definitely the strangest of birds They walk around wobbly on stilt like legs And bark like a dog, that's absurd 365 languages are spoken in Indonesia That's one for every day of the year An archipelago that's larger than any other Never lied to you before, have no fear First bomb dropped on Berlin in the war Killed the only elephant in the Berlin zoo Half of the world has seen an 007 movie It's very hard to believe but it's true Fresh eggs sink in water, stale ones won't Try it, you can tell if they're fresh Drop them in cold water and check 'em out Chuck the yucky ones out, I suggest Hey I don't make this stuff up!

    You didn't make this up, but I'm not surprised you haven't run out of these tidbits yet. It's a testament to man that these fun filled facts keep a coming... It must take whoever compiled them a lot of effort. There must be people like us that just like to make others smile...
