    here's another one 4 you:

    The concept of the werewolf was thought up after people mistakened people with the disease "Porphyria" for wolf-men. The disease makes people grow furry hair on their bodies. In addition their skin is sensitive to sunlight, so they were known to roam safetly only at night....
    Maybe that's why Esau (in the Bible) was so hairy that his father when blind mistook Jacob wearing GOAT SKIN for Esau!!!

    Oh - if you bend an anaconda's tip of its tail, it will almost immediately release you How someone manages to reach its tail while it's strangling you, I do not know. However you can also pour warm/hot water over it or alcohol - both will work the same

    So while you're being throttled, you first have to head up some water, or grab the whisky bottle...

    did you know there's a type of frog that can be entirely frozen so that all its vital functions shut down - but when you defrost it, it starts living again!

    Yep knew that too

    Yeh that's why bending the anaconda's tail is the best way to go about it This guy was stupid enough to have just finished feeding and grooming his rabbit or whatever - THEN go feed his anaconda. It attacked cus their instincts are based on smell and not sight - luckily a friend was around and poured alcohol over the snake

    Oh yeh - never feed anacondas with your hands - cus the snake can smell food - the rabbit or whatever it is - but it only sees your hand cus that's where the heat is - thermal vision - so it will be confused and may attack your hand instead.

    My advice is simply DON'T get an anaconda! Why would anyone want something like that in their house!?

    In ancient England a person could not have sex unless you had consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When anyone wanted to have a baby, they got consent of the King, the King gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they were having sex. The placard had F.*.*.*. (Fornication Under Consent of the King) on it.
    That's completely untrue!

    with a wine bottle turn it upside down and put your thumb into the inward space there. its a hint at the quality of the wine, deeper the space the more the wine bottle cost to make, and therefore the better the wine.
