Did you know...

During the War of 1812, a New York pork packer named Uncle Sam Wilson shipped a boatload of several hundred barrels of pork to U.S. troops. Each barrel was stamped ‘U.S.‘ On the docks, it quickly became bantered about that the ‘U.S.’ stood for ‘Uncle Sam,’ whose large pork shipment looked to be enough to feed the entire army. Thus did ‘Uncle Sam’ come to represent the US Government itself.”

I always figured a group of adult cats was called a sorority.
I looked it up and indeed...you are right.Catty works:

3. sorority
1559 up, 1196 down
A group of women who band together under a greek letter title. Often based in traditions, many sororities have rich histories. The girls call themselves sisters, and tend to have close friendships. Upon entering the sorority, each new member is assigned a "big sister" who will be her mentor and friend, ideally forever. As in any group of women, sometimes the sisters are catty, bitchy, slutty, partiers, nerds, prudes, or just average hard-workers.

Ummm...does this mean, Topix has a sorority?

Tigers from hot continents, such as India, can be distinguished from tigers of cold continents, such as Siberia. The Siberian tigers have white within their orange/black stripes on their bodies but those from India don't.

It is against the law to chew gum in Singapore.
If you need a type of gum for health reasons,
you have to get a prescription from a doctor.

Here in the U.S. Spitting in someone's face is a federal crime, criminal assault.

Peeing in a public area might get you arrested and charged as a sex offender.

Brain freeze, that migraine like pain you get when eating or drinking something very cold, is not due to the cold.
It is the thawing out of your pallet that causes the pain.

Did you know about salt:

Deter ants
Sprinkle salt in doorways, on window sills and anywhere else ants use to sneak into your house. It’s a sure way to keep them out!

Say goodbye to fleas
If your dogs have fleas, simply wash their doghouse and blankets in salt water. If you’re worried your dogs may have brought fleas into your house, simply sprinkle your carpets lightly with salt and then brush it in. Leave it for 12 hours and vacuum thoroughly.

Pick up a dropped egg
If you drop an egg on the kitchen floor, sprinkle salt on the mess and leave it there for 20 minutes. You’ll be able to wipe it right up.

Switching thoughts here:

Did you know:

Origin

The phrase "go pound salt" orginated in the early days of commercial salt mine operations in the US. There were a number of specific jobs performed by people who worked in the mine. The lowest paying and most menial job was pounding large rocks into smaller crystals that could be used for cooking and curing of meats. This job was usually given to those deemed less intelligent (the village idiot, if you will) or those who could find no other gainful employment.
