14 Things that only Phil Manglitz knows but almost forgot


1. Paper money isn’t made out of paper; it’s made out of cotton.

2. The Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper; maybe this explains its content.

3. The dot over the letter i is called a “tittle.”  If it is extremely small it is called a “little tittle.”

4. A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top.  Is that why it is called a “rais’n’?

5. 315 entries in Webster’s 1996 Dictionary were misspelled.

6. Upper and lower case letters are named ‘upper’ and ‘lower’ because in the time when all original print had to be set in individual letters, the ‘upper case’ letters were stored in the case on top of the case that stored the smaller, ‘lower case’ letters.

7. There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos.

8. There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with: orange, purple, and silver. Color me wordless.

9. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you can’t sink in quicksand, but you can bounce in champagne as set forth in #4 above (and you thought this list was completely useless.)

10. The phrase ‘rule of thumb’ is derived from old English common law, which stated that you couldn’t beat your common wife with anything wider than your common thumb.

11. Celery has net negative calories. It takes more calories to eat a piece of celery than the celery has in it to begin with. It’s the same with apples.

12. Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying, unless the gum contains jalapeńo juice.

13. Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book most often stolen from public libraries.

14. Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a space suit damages it.
