Weird, Funny, Surprising Facts

You may know some of them, or all of them already. I found them all over the internet, things that I find amusing, some made me smile, some are annoying, some even left me dumbfounded. I thought it's fun having them here. Here goes:

1. The Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book
most often stolen from public libraries.

2. Q. If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you would find the letter "A"? A. One thousand

3. 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321. - (source: Useless Facts Weird Information Humor)

4. Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about 10.

5. In ancient China, doctors could receive fees only if their patient was cured. If it deteriorated, they would have to pay the patient. (I would be happy if this is implemented in my country)

6. Somnambulism, also known as sleepwalking, is thought to affect between 1% and 15% of the American population. The causes are cited to be anything from restless leg syndrome to mental illness, and the manifestations are even wider spread.

Only Friends

I was checking my facebook wall and had read my FB friends talk about this song. Memories came rushing back... First heard this song from my eldest sister (Ate Vi) , learned how to play the guitar chords from my other sister (Ate Emie), and eternally loved singing it since.

Classic and timeless.
