    The purpose of this thread is for people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise to share knowledge in that popular calendar style we all know(i think everyone has gotten one of these for a gift at least once).

    The idea is for people to learn something a bit interesting they may never have thought about. Facts only please. Topics from food(Buffalo wings, Philly cheese steaks), to cars, to historic hometown events, and everything in between are allowed.

    I know we already have a trivia game here but who cares what the Dad in "Father Knows Best" did for a living? Let your personal knowledge shine through for all to see. You may even learn a thing or 2 .

    Cigarettes help kill you(just a reminder to all you nice folks who may share my bad habit and made a resolution).

    R12, I may need a sampling of the BBQ you claim is best just to be sure it is indeed a fact.

    The term "Redneck" was given to southern farmers who used to walk behind mules while plowing. They often held their head down to look at the plow in front of them. Thus the sun beating down on the back of their neck all day made their neck red most of the time.

    And ya'll thought we was jus a bunch of inbreed idiots. You be suprise how much learning I got the third year in the 5th grade.

    Did I hear an echo?

    Speaking of echoes, a duck's quack does not echo.

    Meats and protiens will produce foul smelling gas when it is passed and fruits and vegatables will produce more gas than normal although not so smelly. The average human passes gas 14 times a day.

    And there are no average humans either.
