DID you know that when a person eats aspergrass (well in a precentage of the population anyhow) it causes their urine to smell odd?

(they dont know if their bodies are equipt to smell the difference or if some ensyme isnt present to break down what makes that smell)

I am in that population.....

Hear, hear.

They should send themselves CHOCOLATE. Not something that they will simply have to watch droop, wilt, decay and die before their eyes as a reminder of the mortality of the human condition which they are spending all alone and trying to allievate the misery of by sending themselves flowers.

That's a really catchy slogan. So how many of your other facts were fake again?

Film maker David Lynch, (Dune, The Elephant Man) does not allow his films to have chapters in them when they are released on DVD.

He feels the movies he makes should be viewed in their entirety without chapter breaks. :P

Ohh OK. Because I told people about the women sending themselves flowers stat; I'm hoping that one was accurate. I looked up the marlboro thing though and found nothing on it.

Im pretty sure that one was accurate, I saw that on some statistic site. But from now on when I post my facts, I'll be sure to double check their accuracy.
