Worthless Facts

My favorite bathroom and light reading book is the World Atlas and Book of Facts and I have found the little tid bits of information that may seem like a waste of brain space but they do help me almost every day..

Post and discuss:

Sharks and rays are the only animals known to man that don't get cancer. Scientists believe this has something to do with the fact that they don't have bones, but cartilage.

Maybe, but I like my peace and quiet. Reading is a habit I've read my fishing license before because there was nothing else to read.

Another lettuce fact.

If you only had lettuce to eat, you would starve to death.

That explains the disappearance of an anorexic girlfriend.
