    *Racecar spelled backwards is Racecar
    *You can't kill yourself while holding your breath.
    *In Arizona cutting down a cactus may earn you a twenty-five-year prison term.

    also for all you smart@ss posters. The post below is for you


    My name is not Jacoby. My uncle's name is Warren.
    1+8=9
    2+7=9
    3+6=9
    4+5=9
    And....

    When you take a number (x) and multiply it by 3, then add 3, it's still a multiple of 3 (x + 1). So, you have a multiple of 3 that you then multiply by 3, which makes it a multiple of 9, and all multiples of 9 (from 9 to 90) add up to 9.

    Gravity is caused by the warping of space. Since objects travels in a straight line through free space, the warpage causes objects to move towards each other.

    That's why a gravity engine in sci-fi movies are less practical then rockets.

    Did you know that the word "africa" originally comes from Ifriqiya.

    In medieval history Ifriqiya was a place in parts of todays Algeria, Tunisia and Lybia

    It comes from the word "Ifri" a word from the berber language.

    Ifri is nowdays a very popular soft drink with various tastes found in Algeria and in France.

    The Amazon logo has a "smiley" in it. It runs from the first "a" to the "z". It signifies they sell everything "from a to z".

    The Pentagon has twice the bathrooms in it that it really needs. One set for blacks and one set for whites. It was built during segregation.

    The first pressing of CD had a work by Richard Strauss. The first CD played to the mass public was on some BBC show and the the album was by the Bee Gees. The first CD album officially released was by Billy Joel, but I think the first album manufactured on CD was by ABBA.
