    Lewis and Clark discovered that blue beads were the most favored in trade with Native Americans along their route of exploration. I love trivia…

    I wonder if that millipede gets ingrown toenails.

    In a country of over one bilion people, how can it possibly be known that there is only one female mechanic? And how do you define mechanic, I have no formal training, and I am not that good at it but I do over 75% of the work on my tractors, quads, truck and other equipment. Am I a mechanic or not?

    @Albertaguy

    Yes, I would say you are a mechanic. And I suspect you’re also adept at many other skills associated with self-sufficiency.

    Ah, I just noticed that nobody else gets credit for submitting the facts today.
    Here I thought that purple was the most expensive pigment, given its association with royalty.

    Also, I assume that 750 is an estimate. Nature isn’t big on round numbers in the base 10.

    If you drop a rock on a millipede’s tail it will keep walking until it pulls its own guts out. Something learned growing up in south Texas.
