    "Stewardesses" is the longest word typed with only the left hand and "lollipop" with your right. (Bet you tried this out mentally, didn't you?)


    No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.


    "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt". (Are you doubting this?)


    Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.


    The sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet. (Now, you KNOW you're going to try this out for accuracy, right?)


    The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes). (Yep, I knew you were going to "do" this one.)


    There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. (You're not doubting this, are you?)


    There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: "abstemious" and "facetious." (Yes, admit it, you are going to say . a e i o u)


    TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard. (All you typists are going to test this out)


    A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.


    A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. (Some days that's about what my memory span is)


    A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.


    A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.


    Cheers,

    Hi

    Thanx for sharing this ...

    I had read this before....but was not convinced about this one...

    "Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. "

    After reading this, very often I used to wonder on seeing a baby's eye.... it will be same when he will be grown up....:confused2:....

    bye
