How much of this is true? It all seems pretty amazing!

1. Men can read smaller print than women can; women can hear better.

2. It is impossible to lick your elbow.

3. Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.

4. Each king in a deck of playing cards represents a great king in history:

Spades – King David
Hearts – Charlemagne
Clubs – Alexander, the Great
Diamonds – Julius Caesar

5. 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321

6. Question: If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you would find the letter “A”?

7. In Shakespeare’s time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase… “goodnight, sleep tight.”

8. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.

9. Believe it or not, you can read this…
