Things to Remember

Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice about you. Wear nice shoes.

If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance you'll die within the next 3 years.

There are at least 6 people in the world who look exactly like you. There's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime.

Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your spine stronger.

A person’s height is determined by their father, and their weight is determined by their mother.

If a part of your body "falls asleep", you can almost always "wake it up" by shaking your head.

There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing -food, attractive people and danger.

Right-handed people tend to chew food on their right side.

Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb the unpleasant odor.

According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear from earth, humans would be dead within 4 years.

There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one everyday, it would take over 20 years to try them all.

    1. It could be right and then again perhaps not. Being thin is the ticket. Wish I was way thinner than I am. :)

  2. I always notice what kind of shoes people are wearing and here I thought I was just odd. I'm going to have to try sleeping without a pillow and see if that one works. Enjoy your day

  5. Those are all good. Oh good, a reason to be a little heavy, because my mother was. What a good excuse.
    Hope you and Zane and Little Bit have a fantastic day. Sandee

  6. I thought that your right side is controlled from the left side of your brain & as far as your parents, well what happens if both of your parents are short and a little heavy. Now I know what my problem was, my parents. Ha,ha,ha. Have a great day Sandee.

  9. Since my job is sitting and my shift is 12 hours, my pet rock Seymour will soon inherit everything I have...except for my debt. Pet rocks are notorious dead beats in that regard.

    1. I know how Seymour is indeed. He'll find a way around that debt thing very easily. :)

  10. Sitting so long is one of the reasons I quit my job! My dad is tall and thin and my mom is short and thin and I'm short and not thin so I wish that one was right. I never look at people's shoes! I need to start doing that! :)

    Hope you're having a wonderful day Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

    1. Both my parents were thin. I'm the thinnest one of the siblings. Both my sister and my brother are pretty heavy.

      You have a wonderful day too. Scritches to the babies. :)

  12. If you lie down in a coffin and don't move for a week, there's a 99% chance that you didn't put tea bags in your gym locker.

  14. I like all of these cool facts ... except for the sitting 11 hours every day fact - because oh-oh I'd better either update my will or start standing up to do my data entry full-time job and my blogging when I'm at home. :D Thanks very much for the heads up, dear Sandee. These were great!

  22. Height/weight thing cracked me up. Yep, I got Dad's height, but mom was what I called a terminal size 8-10. She was a petite and tiny lady. I think I picked up the strong German influence a generation or two back from Dad's side of the family. LOL!

    I"ll have to try the teabag trick. RIght now My topsiders are rank!

    1. Sometimes this height/weight thing doesn't apply. My mother was tiny too. Her kids were not. :)
