inner dork: hodge podge

Hey, you know what? It has been forever since I've had a good dorking. But that's another story for another day. In the meantime, how about some useless trivia!

Did you know...

The word "idiot" comes from Greek and it refers to the time when it was popular/required for all men to take one day out of the year and participate in politics. If someone didn't fulfill this requirement, he was an idiot.
(Hmmmm, I still think the original term is appropriate today.)

When a female rhinoceros is feeling in the mood, she'll ram her potential lover with her horn.
(Because she's horny!)

Ra was the sun god of ancient Egypt.
(All bow down. Actually worshipping the sun makes more sense to me than worshiping an invisible being. But's that's for another day as well.)

One in four women can't remember the names of their past lovers.
(Does it count if you didn't know their name to begin with?)

In ancient Japan, public contests were held to see who could fart the longest and loudest. Winners were held in great acclaim.
(Today that's just called Tuesday.)

One in six adults have admitted to having sex with someone simply because they were too embarrassed to say no.

The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly.
(K-Y or grape?)

Fifty-three percent of women prefer sex with the man on top.
(Wanna guess which percentage I am?) (Hint: Not the 53%.)

It was only after 440 C.E. that December 25 was celebrated as the birth date of Jesus.
(The first department store sale was held the following year.)

All organic compounds contain carbon.
(Which makes dating them SO much easier.)

It takes one fifteen-twenty year old tree to produce seven hundred paper grocery bags.
(Plastic it is.)

The poison arrow frog has enough poison to kill approximately twenty-two hundred people.
(Yaw-za! Frogs in trees, let them be.)

Whew! I feel good and dorked.

So do the other 47% prefer the man on the bottom, or behind? ;)

Bre said...

Yes! I've missed these dorkings! :)

Also, it's a good thing that male rhinos have thick skins, otherwise that could make for an awkward situation! :)

Yawza! That's a killer frog!! I guess it's not the type you want to lick.

ptg said...

Glad to see your dorkings are back!

Party Girl said...

Nick: If it's me, then both. I don't want to speak for the other 47%.

Bre: I know, can you imagine?

Limpy: ....that, too.

GG: well, maybe there is a killer high before the killer death if you lick them.

ptg: Me, too! It has been too long with no useless information!

I'm glad everyone likes the inner dork. they are one of my favorite postings.
