    interesting …:) bananas r herbs?? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ….

  2. Ha! A good list.
    You ARE a bit taller in the morning than at night. During the day, while you sit or stand, your spine and legs actually compact together a little bit. At night, when you lie down and the weight is off of those joints, they expand back out, so that you are taller when you get up. This is why some people (like me) must adjust the rearview mirror in the car each morning when they go to work.

    I love such facts, when using them in a conversation they make you look smarter, like this:

    Him/Her: Hello, how are you?
    You: I’m fine. Say, do you know that bats always turn left when exiting a cave?
    Him/Her: Really interesting. I wonder why!
    You: Oh it simple. Because kittens are born blind, and you can add to that, that smokers eat more sugar than non-smokers do.
    Him/Her: Wow, you are smart!
    You: I know. 😎

  7. Jasim: looool im giving you pick up line ideas! shu bidak a7la min heik πŸ˜€

    (7asseitak Joey when he got the encyclopedia in one episode!)

  8. Dima: lol πŸ˜€ bas sara7a when i used to smoke i used to crave sugar all the time, so i can actually relate to this one being true..

    howeh medically speaking, smoking shrinks the size of arteries, so insulin produced doesnt get into the blood as it is supposed to, aw bil a7ra in the amounts its supposed to (laheik most smokers develop a risk of diabetes) so sugar doesnt get to the body properly, so the result is that one craves sugar..

  9. Tamara says:

    I love this post !! cool facts : )

  10. Tamara: glad u like it bannout πŸ™‚ welcome to my new corner πŸ˜€

  11. Yep, I adjust the mirrors on days when I get up and immediately leave the house. The longer time that I am vertical before getting into the car, the less the mirrors require adjustment.

  12. Jenna says:

  13. ivocha says:

    You are about 1 centimeter taller in the morning than in the evening! (i donno if its true, but if it were, why!?) -because the discs between vertebreas are flatter in the eveing.

  17. Erin says:

    bananas … herbs? very strange!
    and thankyou, i now understand
    why i am partially deaf! πŸ˜€

  18. Erin says:

    just had to look up the whole banana thing as it was the only one that i found really hard to beleive this is what i got …

    Although referred to as banana trees, they are not trees at all but a perennial herb. Its trunk is not a true one, but many leaves tightly wrapped around a single stem which emerges at the top as the fruit-bearing flower stalk.

    Therefore i think its saying the banana is a fruit but it is grown on some kinda freaky herb … :S dno!
