Is that because of stick-driving car accidents? I wonder why this would be...

Damn, I'm a BIG senfeld fan. I can't believe I never noticed the Superman fact. Was there one in Jerry's apartment or something? I think there might have been.

<< shakespeare also coined "titanic" >>


I don't believe that or:
11. Shakespeare invented the words ' assassination' and 'bump'.

I thought 'titanic' was Greek for a family of giants and assassination was from Arabic, being a corruption of hasish that highwaymen smoked.

Here's one I heard on the radio the other night.

Did you know:

You actually weigh a bit more at night, because the sun (which is on the other side of the earth) is pulling you "harder" towards the face of the earth.
