Did you know...

Alexander Graham Bell disliked telephones?

When the telephone was introduced in 1876, a Western Union internal memo noted:“This ‘telephone’ has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is of no value to us.” In 1879, W. H. Preece, a Post Office engineer, testified to a House of Commons Committee that Britain had little use of the telephone because:“Here we have a superabundance of messengers, errand boys and things of that kind”

Even Alexander Graham Bell, who was awarded the patent for the invention of the telephone, disliked telephones so much that he refused to have one in his office. But that should not come as a surprise because both his mother and wife was deaf and perhaps Bell – who also was a speech teacher to the deaf – was only considering them.

When Bell passed away in 1922, every telephone served by the Bell system in the USA and Canada was silent for one minute.

Due to the nature of cow's eating large portions of food without chewing, it leads to conditions known as Hardware Disease. This condition is caused when cows swallow a relatively heavy and sharp object such as nails, wire fencing, etc., which eventually finds its way to the rumen and the reticulum. The contractions from the reticulum can lead to irritation and inflammation, and this infection can potentially be life threatening to the cow.
To protect the cow's stomach from these harsh conditions, stock farmers insert a cow magnet into its stomach to attract these harmful objects.
They stopped using bailing wire for hay, it's nylon rope now, it cut down on the need for magnets. I did have my 4-H project steer die from that exact problem. The wire was ingested but went into the blood stream and up to his heart.

A cow has more than one stomach and chews it CUD a couple of times before it is digested...

Different degrees of digestion (meditations) is partly the reason for so many different denominations of the bible..

A preacher goes into a bar and says "Anybody who wants to go to heaven, stand up." Everybody stands up except for a drunk in the corner. The preacher says "My son, don't you want to go to heaven when you die?" The drunk says


"When I die? Sure. I thought you were taking a load up now."
