The six eyed crab spider occurs both in Africa and South America because it was around when the continents were still joined.

The only one that comes to mind is that Spam (the canned stuff) actually IS organic.

I have some other gems in my head somewhere.

If you 'convert' the phrase 'Cute Purple Dinosaur' to latin (ie. replace U with V), extract the letters of the Roman numerals and add them up... the result is 666.

Cute Purple Dinosaur
Cvte Pvrple Dinosavr 'Latin-ised'
C V V L D I V Extract Roman numerals

100 + 5 + 5+ 50 + 500 + 1 + 5 'Convert Roman to alphanumeric'

= 666

Thus, this proves that Barney, the cute purple dinosaur, is Satan! :twisted:

PS. if there are any really young ones here who like Barney, I'll just say now that it is a joke and not true in any way...

It can take 8.9 seconds to bleed a body dry given adequate vacuum pressure.

Brilliant web site by the way!
