Re: strange/unsual/funny/random facts

Love this thread idea @outlander! Okay so here is mine that I found out a while ago when I had my beautiful cat in my life! 

'Research has shown that the soothing sounds of a kitty can aid your body in a number of ways. Cats are able to heal because their purrs fluctuate between 20-140 Hz, a frequency range which has been proven to be medically therapeutic.'

Re: strange/unsual/funny/random facts

There is a rumour that floats around that it is impossible to lick your elbow. It actually isn't impossible...but it is super tricky. {Phoenix_Rising now sits back and watches every single person in Forum Land attempt to lick their elbow}. Smiley LOL

How do you think I know it isn't impossible @outlanderSmiley LOL

I'm really developing my skill set these days; I can stand on my head, balance an egg AND lick my elbow. I really have no idea why I'm so unemployable with such a useful skill set!!! Smiley Very Happy

Hahaha @Phoenix_Rising how amusing it would be to watch you in your element 😂

Re: strange/unsual/funny/random facts

I love these - and I 


1. I have a cat and having her Royal Furriness cuddling close to me and purring certainly keeps my tension down - I love the cat and I stare at her and wonder if she loves me or if she is in it for the cuddles.


2. I'm not trying elbow-licking - after all - I haven't thought of a good enough reason - but you never know - I might try it later after


Okay - here's mine


They say all roads lead to Rome - it's equally true that they all lead away from it too.


The earth is a globe so why do map-makers assume that the northern hemisphere is at the top - if the truth was told maybe the whole universe is upside down


And oh yes!!!! Every finger - every part of our body containing veins - have veins that lead to the heart - but wow - good one @outlander
