Forget mosquito repellent. Sleeping next to a chicken will keep mosquitoes at bay


Scientists have found that the smell of fowl sends the blood-sucking bugs packing.

And while the method may sound bizarre, it could save the lives some of the 3.2 billion people at risk of malaria, for example.

To test the theory, volunteers slept in beds surrounded by mosquito nets.

They found the much-loathed insects steered clear of their room when a cage containing a live chicken, or its feathers, was suspended outside the bed.

Does sugar make kids hyper


Sugar doesn’t change kids’ behavior, a double-blind research study found way back in 1994.

A sugary diet didn’t affect behavior or cognitive skills, the researchers report. 

Sugar does change one important thing, though: parents’ expectations. 

After hearing that their children had just consumed a big sugar fix, parents were more likely to say their child was hyperactive, even when the big sugar fix was a placebo, another study found.

Wendy's "Chili Finger Lady"


In 2005, Anna Aayala was dining at a San Jose Wendy's restaurant when she claimed she chomped down on a partially-cooked segment of human finger. 

The fast food chain suffered an estimated $21 million in lost business.

Her husband, Jaime Plascencia, got the severed finger from a co-worker, who lost it in an industrial accident. 

Both Ayala and Plascencia pleaded guilty. 

Aayala was sentenced to nine years in prison but was released after four years on good behavior. 

There's one condition to her release: She's not allowed to step foot back in the place that made her famous.

Australian Aboriginal Custom Forbids Husband From Talking To Their Mother-In-Law


Aboriginal custom throughout Australia bans a person from talking directly to their mother in law or even seeing her. 

The relationship is one of respect, but avoidance. 

A mother-in-law also eats apart from her son-in-law or daughter-in-law and their spouse. 

If the two are present at the same ceremony, they will sit with their backs to each other but they can still communicate via the wife/husband, who remains the main conduit for communication in this relationship.

School is out for the summer because...


The reason students have summer off is because, in the 1800s, it was simply too hot to go to school, so students just didn’t show up anyway.

Lawmakers eventually saw the sense in this and fought for a school-free summer for students.

Think about it...


I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

Can you cry under water?

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"...but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going? (taxes)

Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.

Why is "bra" singular and "panties" plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane ?

If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

If Wile E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Why do they call it an asteroid when it's outside the ATMOSPHERE , but call it a hemorrhoid when it's in your butt?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Two Virginia Firefighters were suspended for saving a little girl's life


Two Virginia Firefighters were suspended after transporting an 18-month-old girl to a hospital in their fire engine, a policy breach that ultimately saved the girl’s life.

The proud owner of a magnificent 1956 Chevrolet convertible...


The proud owner of a magnificent 1956 Chevrolet convertible, wrote to say he had restored the car to perfection over the last few years, and sent this:

On a very warm summer afternoon he decided to take his car to town. It needed gas, as the gauge was practically on empty, but he wanted ice cream, so he headed first to his favorite ice cream shop.

He had trouble finding a parking space and had to park the car down a side street. He noticed a group of young guys standing around smoking cigarettes and eyeing my car rather covetously. He was a bit uneasy leaving it there, but people often take interest in such an old and well-preserved car, so he went off to enjoy his ice cream.

The line at the ice cream shop was long and it took him quite a while to return to his car. When he did, his worst fears were realized… his car was gone.

He called the police and reported the theft and then went back and bought a quart of pistachio ice cream. About ten minutes later the police called him to say they had found the car abandoned near a gas station a few miles out of town.

It was unharmed and he was relieved. It seems just before he called, the police had received a call from a young woman who was an employee at a self-service gas station. She told them that three young men had driven in with this beautiful old convertible. One of them came to the window and prepaid for 20 dollars-worth of gas.

Then all three of them walked around the car, looking at it carefully, and then just walked away…….without filling the tank.

The question is, why would anybody steal a car, pay for gas that they never pumped, and then abandon the car later and walk away?

Answer: They couldn't find where to put the gas! (See picture)

Eventually, the interpreter admitted that he had said,
