DID YOU KNOW…
March 2018

Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice about you. I guess that means we should wear nice shoes. I’ve got to be honest; I never look at a person’s shoes.

If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance you'll die within the next 3 years. A little scary when you think about it – sitting at a desk all day…sitting in front of the TV when we get home…hmmm.

There are at least 6 people in the world that look exactly like you; wow that’s unfortunate. AND, there's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime. I’m still waiting.

Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your spine stronger. OK, but that sure sounds uncomfortable.

A person’s height is determined by their father, and their weight is determined by their mother.

There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing, food, attractive people and danger.

Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb the unpleasant odor. Sure wished I had known that sooner.

According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear from earth, humans would be dead within 4 years.

There are so many kinds of apples, that if you ate a new one every day, it would take over 20 years to try them all.

You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only live 11 days without sleeping.

People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.

A human brain has a capacity to store 5 times as much information as Wikipedia. Unfortunately, that capacity is rarely used. As well, our brain uses the same amount of power as a 10-watt light bulb!!

There you go.

I have no clue how any of this will help you, but it was fun to think about.
