Did Ya Know?

Posted on

So useless knowledge Thursday is getting a new name!

Did Ya know?

New name, but same ideas.

 

1.) 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

Gasp! This is no good at all…

 

2.)101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan (Wendy) are the only two Disney cartoon features with both parents that are present and don’t die throughout the movie.

Family features?

 

3.)Windmills always turn counter-clockwise. Except for the windmills in Ireland.

Those windmills are special.

 

4.)The word “Checkmate” in chess comes from the Persian phrase “Shah Mat,” which means “the king is dead”.

Well…you do knock the piece over.

 

5.)The term “the whole 9 yards” came from WWII fighter pilots in the South Pacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 caliber machine gun ammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into the fuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target, it got “the whole 9 yards.”

I always wondered.
