Did Ya Know?

1.) Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found edible.

That’s neat, but why would you taste something that was found in a really old tomb.

2.) Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a “Friday the 13th.”

You looked at your calendar, didn’t you?

3.) Coca-Cola would be green if coloring weren’t added to it.

I wouldn’t drink it.

4.) More people are killed each year from bees than from snakes.

I still don’t like either one.

5.) A man named Charles Osborne had the hiccups for 69 years!

I can’t imagine this! I can hardly stand to have them for two minutes.

It’s been awhile since I posted one of these, but I’m excited!

Enjoy!

1.) The word “queue” is the only word in the English language that is still pronounced the same way when the last four letters are removed.

Did you say that to yourselves as many times as I did?

2.) Beetles taste like apples, wasps like pine nuts, and worms  like fried bacon.

This is one of those moments when the phrase, “I’ll take your word for it,” comes in handy.

3.)You can’t kill yourself by holding your breath.

Lucky us! So, when your kid holds there breath too long don’t fret.

4.) Right handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.

Oh yay, I’m right handed. 

5.) It is impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

Now that I think about it…

Camper Quotes!

Posted on

Camp is one of my favorites places to be each and every summer!

Campers are such a joy to be around especially when they don’t realize exactly what they are telling you.

 

1.) This  happened during a mother/daughter mini camp during Bible study.

Camper: “My mom and me go to a temporary church.”

 

Sounds like this church doesn’t last very long!

It’s a good thing she really meant Contemporary church.

Her mother corrected her after she had finished laughing at her daughter’s blunder.

 

2.) This happened during GA/Acteen mini camp while I was greeting new campers as they arrived in my cabin.

Camper: “What are we doing after dinner?”

Me: “Worship”

Camper: “What are we doing after worship?”

Me: “Talent show”

Camper’s eyes widen

Camper: “But I don’t have a talent!”

 

It’s a good thing for this camper that our talent show was only for the staffers!

 

3.) This one happened during a GA/Acteen mini camp right after we had finished worship and we were just about to begin our talent show.

Camper: “Miss Brittany are you married?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you have a boyfriend?”

Me: “Nope”

Camper: “Do you want one?”

Me: “uhhh…”

Camper stands up

Camper: “ARE THERE ANY SINGLE GUYS HERE!”

Me: “SSSHHH! There aren’t any guys here it’s a girls camp!”

Camper sits back down

Camper: “Ok then give me your address and I’ll send you pictures of some guys”

Me: “You already have my address.”

Camper: “I know the perfect guy for you!”

 

I should be worried that a 12 year old wants to set me up.

 

4.) This happened during the GAs/Acteens mini camp during our bible study.

Me: “Jesus is going to come back the same way he left. That is what the Bible says.”

Camper:  “He’s gonna come back dead!?”

 

It’s a very good thing Jesus rose from the dead before he ascended into heaven. OR else she would have been right but, I did my best to explain to her just what I meant.

 

Keep an eye out for more of these post!

These all happened during one week of two mini camps.

I can’t wait to see what they will say next.

1.)5% of Canadians don’t know the first 7 words of the Canadian anthem, but know the first 9 of the American anthem.

2.)7% of Americans don’t know the first 9 words of the American anthem, but know the first 7 of the Canadian anthem.
Well, Alrighty then! I believe These two might need to swap places

3.)85,000,000 tons of paper are used each year in the U.S.
It is because of all those papers we are required to write.

4.)A “jiffy” is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.
I’ll be there in a jiffy. I may start using this.

5.)A mole can dig a tunnel 300 feet long in just one night.
Nothing better to do might as well dig.

Well…Hello Thursday! You snuck up on me today.

 

1.) If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

That would be a long time to wait for a cup of coffee…

 

2.) Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

And as a plus you get this really awesome concussion!

 

3.) The average person falls asleep in seven minutes.

I wish I could time this some how but, I feel like I would fall asleep before I could check…

 

4.) Elephants are the only mammals that can’t jump.

Seriously… would you really want them to?

 

5.) More people are killed annually by donkeys than die in air crashes.

Really!? Alrighty then.

Today’s bits of useless knowledge…

1.)  In a study of 200,000 ostriches over a period of 80 years, no one reported a single case where an ostrich buried its head in the sand.

Say what!?

 

2.) More than 50% of the people in the world have never made or received a telephone call

Sad day!

 

3.) Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months, two rats could have over a million descendants.

Forget the chickens taking over. The Rats are going to take over the world.

 

4.) A ball of glass will bounce higher than a ball of rubber. A ball of solid steel will bounce higher than one made entirely of glass.

I now want to test this. How about you?

 

5.) Guinea pigs and rabbits can’t sweat

Well I guess it’s good people don’t say, “I’m sweating like a Rabbit!”
