Dear Brain Freeze,

4.12.2012

I guess it isn't really a freeze... It is more like a mind blank. I have been thinking all morning about that I should blog about, but honestly... nothing comes to mind. So instead... here are some random facts for you.


On average, there are 178 sesame seeds on each McDonalds BigMac bun.

The Baby Ruth candy bar was actually named after Grover Cleveland's baby daughter, Ruth.

The three best-known western names in China: Jesus Christ, Richard Nixon, and Elvis Presley.

There are twice as many kangaroos in Australia as there are people. The kangaroo population is estimated at about 40 million.

American car horns beep in the tone of F.

Mary Stuart became Queen of Scotland when she was only six days old.

The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

Kansas state law requires pedestrians crossing the highways at night to wear tail lights.


Those are some good things to learn... Tuck those in your pocket for next time you play Trivial Pursuit. Now what can you teach me today?

Love,
Deidre
