    American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each salad served in first class

    The question mark came from a monk habit of writing the Latin word for question, quo, at the end of sentences. Over time, the letters were written vertically to save space and morphed into the ? we write today. Similarly, the exclamation point came from the Latin word "Lo", meaning something important that should be heeded. (Lo and behold...)


    Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to SLOW a film down so you could see his moves. That's the opposite of the norm.

    Celery has negative calories! It takes more calories to digest a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. (Mmm, diet food.)

    By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand. One should carry a stout pole while travelling in quicksand country...when placed under one's back, it helps one to float out of the quicksand

    Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying!

    I know I've used this one before, but there's been some new folks since then:

    A cockroach can live for 9 DAYS without it's head before it dies of thirst.
    I hope you cherish this sweet way of life, and I hope you know that it comes with a price.

    Bullet's trial was a farce. Can I get an AMEN?????

    We won't be punished for our sins, but BY them.
