More Time Wasted in the Pursuit of Nothing

Updated: May 23, 2020

Welcome back from Jacksonville you psychos. The daily beast has my favorite headline of the weekend. “Officials Dumbfounded as Florida Beaches Reopen, 3 Days After Death Spike.” #FLORIDAMORONS And, no matter what side of Pandemic Quarantine you are on…. you must admire the hashtag and my favorite new potential band name, Death Spike. Anyway, I am working on 3 or 4 other projects that I know you are going to love but had to bring something to the Blog Party today. So, I am recycling some YouTube video uselessness at you. You seemed to respond to it Friday, so as my mother used to say to my sister, “He only keeps doing it to get a rise out of you.” So, here is more….13 Totally Random Useless Facts of Knowledge...and I must issue the disclaimer. I believe everything I am about to say is true, but it may not be...but I thinks so... so here they are...

#1 7-up (The soda, invented in 1929) got its name from the original 7 oz bottle it came in and because the bubbles went - on that theory, lets break down Coca-Cola. Coke, typically went up the nose hole -a? Something to this theory.

#2 When typing correctly, ‘Stewardesses' is the longest English word that is typed with only the left hand. So “I” just figured “I” is the shortest word with the right hand.

#3 The word "samba" means "to rub navels together." Which made me think of other dance names and their origins. Polka?

#4 A 'jiffy' is a unit of time and measures for 1/100th of a second. Jif is peanut butter.

#5 Your Cell Phone is full of bacteria! The average cell phone 18x more germs than a toilet handle in a men’s room. Disinfect your phone!

#6 One quarter of all the bones in your body are in your feet.

#7 Ten percent of the Russian government's income comes from the sale of vodka.

#8 In the United States, a pound of potato chips costs two hundred times more than a pound of potatoes.

#9 One-fourth of the world's population lives on less than $200 a year. Ninety million people survive on less than $75 a year. I may need to move to one of those places, very soon.

#10 It is illegal to hunt camels in the state of Arizona. But smoking them is fine… if you are of age.

#11 Average life span of a major league baseball: 7 pitches. They might currently be living a lot longer.

#12 Sean Gunn, the actor known as Kirk for 7 seasons on the Gilmour Girls is actual Mick in episode 2 of the 1st season. He appears as a cable guy. His brother in real life is the Director of Guardians of the Galaxy. You needed to know this! The Gilmour Girls can change your life…

#13 Spencer Lacey Ganus, the actress that voiced the Teen aged Elsa in "Frozen," was paid $926.20 for her part in the highest-grossing animated film of all time. (she eventually received $10,000 or so in residuals from this 1.2B grossing movie. I was hoping to be paid $1200 by the Federal Government for singing Frozen songs to my 18-month-old…. but no. Nothing yet. Payment Status Not Available…

Well, there you go. As promised, I gave you 13 (if not more) Totally Random Useless Facts of Knowledge...and before you click away, please share one of my posts with a friend. Sharing is caring. Any post, as I am not picky. Until next post.
