    Machiavelli wasn't Machiavellian. He was just a misunderstood satirist.

    @Nancy Hart Ha, Ha! I certainly could use that, as I can't hear my phone ring. Even on "buzz", it often eludes my detection. But I've always perceived tattoos are painful..............and I've always feared needles!

    Speaking of needles...:rolleyes:

    American Pam Turner invented the Spiral Eye side-threading needles, which she launched in 2008. Wonder how well they work?

    It is claimed that 1 out of every 6 human beings depends on the Ganges River for their water.

    Hard to imagine!

    The earliest known undergarment was the loincloth, a long strip of material worn between the legs and around the waist. King Tutankhamun was buried with 145 of them.

    Mrs. Vassilyeva, a peasant from Shuya, Russia who lived from 1707-1782 gave birth to 16 sets of twins, seven sets of triplets, and four sets of quadruplets. Although it seems impossible, there are birth records to prove it!

    THAT'S A TOTAL OF........69 CHILDREN ............... !!!!!

    Beyond just being neat, the margins used on page or in a book are to keep rats and bugs from eating the actual script. The hopes are that they’ll just eat around the edges.
