       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

The past few days I have been fighting a bad cold, and it 
just refuses to go away! So, if you don't mind, I am going 
to keep things short so I can take some cough medicine and 
get some rest. Talk to you tomorrow...

Enjoy!
Melissa

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can 
never go back to its old dimensions.” 

HINT: (1809-1894), American physician, poet, writer, and 
humorist 

*********************************************************** 

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

The human head contains 22 bones, consisting of the cranium 
and the facial bones. The cranium is formed by 8 bones: the 
frontal bone, two parietal bones, two temporal bones, the 
occipital bone in the back, the ethmoid bone behind the 
nose, and the sphenoid bone. The face consists of 14 bones 
including the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible (lower jaw). 


                             *** 

The human brains consists of more than 100 billion neurons 
(nerve cells) through which the brain's commands are sent 
in the form of electric pulses. These pulses travel at more 
than 250 mph, creating enough electricity to power a 
lightbulb. The brain consumes more energy than any other 
organ.

                             *** 

Humans actually do not see with our eyes - we see with our 
brains. The eyes basically are the cameras of the brain. 
One-quarter of the brain is used to control the eyes.

Do you remember Bozo The Clown?

If you're like me you grew up watching Bozo The Clown. There
were many different Bozo's around the country. Here in Chicago
it was Bob Bell. Even Willard Scott got his start being Bozo.

But there was one Bozo who started it all and to most people
he IS the one and only Bozo. That's Larry Harmon.

On July 3, 2008 we lost Larry. Luckily his work and the magic
that is Bozo will live on forever. Check out this video clip
of Bozo.

You can also buy the DVD at a discounted price. Check it out

According to a 2001 survey by the Bristol-Myers Squibb 
Company, accountants get the most headaches. About 49% of 
the accountants in the survey reported getting weekday 
headaches. The accountants were followed by librarians 
(43%), bus and truck drivers (42%) and construction workers 
(38%).

                             *** 

If you go blind in one eye, you'll only lose about one-
fifth of your vision (but all of your depth perception.)

                             *** 

The average human body contains enough: iron to make a 3 
inch nail, sulfur to kill all fleas on an average dog, 
carbon to make 900 pencils, potassium to fire a toy cannon, 
fat to make 7 bars of soap, phosphorous to make 2,200 
match heads, and water to fill a ten-gallon tank.
