Huge shout out to Big D for Guest Blogging Useless Info Tuesday for me! As you can guess, typing is not that comfortable for me right now. (He attached pictures too, but they would not copy over).

In case you’d like a hand this week… I rounded up a few for you…
~ The Bible is the number one shoplifted book in America.
~ The English-language alphabet originally had only 24 letters. U and J were added later, in that order.
~ Mageiricophobia is the intense fear of having to cook.
~ An apple, onion, and potato all have the same taste. The differences in flavor are caused by their smell. To prove this – pinch your nose and take a bite from each. The will all taste sweet.
~ The exact geographic center of the US is near Lebanon, Kansas.
~ Like fingerprints, everyone’s tongue print is different.
AND MY FAVORITE ONE OF ALL....
~ It only takes 10 pounds of pressure to break a collarbone.
