In Florida, it is illegal to sing in a public place...while wearing a bathing suit. :huh:   

:scratch: Why?


In Britain, two women were killed in 1999, by lightning conducted through their underwired bra's :o
Eye witness testimony - "Yeah, there was this big flash of light and, next thing we knew, they were just mammaries...."  (probly) :fugly:



John Milton received just £10 (approx $17) for Paradise Lost during his entire lifetime :/

(Hell, I had to pay for my wedding, so he gets no sympathy from me ;) )

Edgar Rice Burrows wrote 26 Tarzan books without ever visiting Africa :scratch:


Lord Byron, considered one of the most dashing and attractive men of his time, was overweight, and had a club foot.  (he was probably rational about it though ;) )  He also had four pet geese that he took everywhere, even to social gatherings :o
