Time for some trivia and You are going to supply the fun info. tongue Is there a fun fact that you know? Maybe there's something you learned recently that not many people are aware of? Or is there something that interests you? Look it up and share it with others. Or just look around trivia sites for fun topics. There are some great trivia sites out there. I just spent about half an hour getting lost in some of them...lol

This game is called... Did you know???

Did you know that ... "In the past 60 years, the groundhog has only predicted the weather correctly 28% of the time. The rushing back and forth from burrows is believed to indicate sexual activity, not shadow seeking." There goes another mystery up in a *poof*..lol

What's your trivia for today?

No one has any trivia for today...OK, I'll add some more.


By the law of averages you are more likely to be killed by a flying champagne cork than by a poisonous spider.

If you drop a frog into boiling water it will hop straight back out again, but if you put it in cold water and heat it slowly the frog will boil to death.

There is the exact amount of water on Earth today as when the Earth was formed. Water is never totally consumed. It always recycles itself, in one form or another.

In Fruita, Colorado, the town folk celebrate 'Mike the Headless Chicken Day'. Seems that a farmer named L.A. Olsen cut off Mike's head on September 10, 1945 in anticipation of a chicken dinner - and Mike lived for another 4 years WITHOUT A HEAD. Mike died from choking on a corn kernel. (look this one up, it's funny)

Chimney's used to be cleaned by dropping live chickens down them

The closest living relative of the t-rex is the chicken which makes the phobia 'Alektorophobia' (Fear of chickens) slightly more plausible.

In Michigan, it is illegal to chain an alligator to a fire hydrant. (there go my fun for today!)

It is against the law to whale hunt in Oklahoma. (guess you gotta find one first..lol)

Let's get going~~

Did you know that you can't ride an elephant to the airport because they can't see what's in the trunk?   GROAN...Sorry Chutz, couldn't behave myself!  Besides, I want to know who tried boiling a frog! 
 
Okay, here is some trivia about something that is near and dear to our hearts and waistlines....chocolate!
 
Did you know that the Tootsie Roll was named after the inventor's daughter?  Her name was Clara but they called her Tootsie.  Gee, it's a good thing they didn't call her Racklefratz!
 
Did you know that chocolate syrup was used as blood for the Psycho shower scene?
 
Did you know that, in the US, seven billion pounds of chocolate and candy are produced each year?
 
Here's a good one.  Did you know that one plain chocolate candy bar has more protein than a banana?  Great excuse, huh?!!!
 
Did you know that Mars invented the M&M's for soldiers going to World War II?
 
Did you know that Aztec emperor Montezuma drank fifty golden goblets of hot chocolate every day?  It was thick, dyed red, and flavored with chili peppers. 
 
Did you know that American and Russian space flights have always included chocolate?
