    You cannot burp in outer space. Gas requires gravity to separate from liquid in the stomach.

    A scientist in Atlanta collected more than 10 pounds of bullet shell casings from city streets during lunch hours. They ranged from .22 caliber to bullets used in the AK47. Police officials said that didn't mean the city isn't safe. They said people could be firing weapons elsewhere & leaving the shells in Atlanta.

    Now that is a long shot.

    Over 4 feet long & weighing over 100 pounds, the South American capybara is the largest rodent in the world. In the 16th century, the Catholic Church classified it as a fish so that it could be eaten during Lent.

    I wonder how much truth there is to this.

    The rule during Lent isn't "you must eat fish"; the rule during Lent is "you should not eat the meat of a warm-blooded animal". All they would have had to do was not classify a Capybara as a warm-blooded animal with meat. That's still leaves the possible allowed classifications wide open.

    I'd guess somewhere along the way, some sensationalist misreported it as "you can eat Capybara on Fridays, therefore Capybara must be fish."

    - So, logically--
    - If she weighs the same as a duck...
    - she's made of wood.
    - And therefore?
    - A witch!

    3.7 million Americans claim to have been abducted by aliens. Most found it a positive experience.

    Why haven't you been contacted?

    The Amazon is the largest river in the world. It has no bridges.
    The Amazon flows with such force that sailors 200 miles out to sea can drink fresh water.

    The zyzzyva is a tropical American weevil. It is the last entry in many dictionaries.

    He's saying you're not very welcoming. He's being tongue-in-cheek.

    I would probably welcome aliens, depending on some variable factors, of course.
