Sharks have eyelids they close when attacking to protect their eyes.

The longest time between two twins being born is 87 days.
Along that line of thought.
When I was in school I had a set of triplets in my classes. The two boys were born after the cut-off date for school enrollment. The girl, born the next day, was born after the cut-off date, and she was one grade behind.
AT THE SAME TIME, there was a brother and sister born 9 1/2 months apart within the same school calendar year, and were in the same grade... and obviously were not twins.

The first man to urinate on the moon was Buzz Aldrin, shortly after stepping onto the lunar surface.
He was just SO excited.

There is a town in Norway called Hell, and it freezes over nearly every winter. :twisted:

There's a Hell, Michigan (MI) in the USA, as well as, a Paradise, MI and they are about a 5 hour and 20 min drive from one another.

The number of the devil is actually 616, not 666. The Bible says the number but in "fourscore and twain" talk. Someone mistranslated and 666 stuck
