Top Ten Groovy Oddities
Mood:  special
  1. A carbon-filament 4-watt light bulb has been burning in Livermore, California, fire-department since 1901, making it the world's oldest light bulb.(Proof that they don't make light bulbs like they used to.)
  2. In 2005, a Calgary man caught a boiled egg thrown from 275 feet away in his mouth.(He knew eggactly where to place his mouth.)
  3. A letter mailed to a small town in Germany in 1718 was finally delivered in 2004.(and you thought Canada Post was slow)
  4. In Switzerland, some mountain glaciers are wrapped in aluminum foil during the summer to keep them from melting.(Be nice to your ice and your ice will be nice to you.)
  5. A 26-year-old Croatian woman fell 40 feet from her apartment window in 2005 and survived after landing on her feet.(She's part human and part puddy cat.)
  6. The mouth of a hyena is so tough that the animal can chew a glass bottle without being cut.(It dumps the pieces out of its "glass hole".)
  7. The town of Florissant, Columbia elected Paco Bell as mayor. He's a donkey.(This was an improvement over the last mayor who was an ass.....)
  8. A woman in Kent, England, won a loudest scream contest by reaching 129 decibels, about the level of a pneumatic drill.(A week later, she also won the mother-in-law screaming contest.) 
  9. In 2005, a 100-year-old motorist in Belgium was given a discount on his car insurance because he hadn't had an accident in 80 years.(He was the only person in the world with an 80 star rating and he deserves it.)
  10. A slice of singer, Justin Timberlake's half-eaten French toast fetched $4,000 on E-Bay. That included syrup and a fork.(A turd from this singer didn't sell for nearly as much.)

Check out (This beats the "EverReady Bunny" by a century.)
