LA : Short and Sweet
Los Angeles’ full name is “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula”
WOW! I have a hard time remembering the person I just met’s name. LA sounds a lot better. You can totally tell that a hispanic person named that city giving it a first name, a middle name, a last name, it’s mother’s maiden name, the grandmother’s maiden name and the neighbor’s mother’s maiden name. Geez.

If the population of China walked past you in a single file line, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.
I am speechless.
The sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” uses every letter of the alphabet.
I’ll wait while you try to remember it. You’ll be back tomorrow to look at it again. You know what? Just write it down cause you’re not going to remember it.

If you pour a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death.I want to meet the person who discovered this? The same goes for the person who discovered that snails can sleep for three years. Who has that kind of time?
Thank you man with chocolate bar. Now the whole world can have hot food in three minutes or less. Why didn’t this man get the Nobel Prize?
I guess this makes everyone allergic to peanuts.

14 Five Dollar Bill
All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill.
15 Did I swim by that rock already?

16 Franklin Roosevelt
A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.
I bet you’re also thinking, “I didn’t know that that was Franklin Roosevelt on the dime?” Am I right?

Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.
