Every now and then some fun, more is soon to come.
For a quick laugh:
|Oh Aunt Annie, where have you been?|
|Seriously, that's adult content on a street.|
On the average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily. (Oh Mother, where art thou?)
Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time. (Superpower?)
Leonardo da Vinci invented scissors. Also, it took him 10 years to paint Mona Lisa's lips.
(Thanks for the scissors, you caused me several hand injuries.)
The original name for the butterfly was "flutterby"!
(Whoo, I knew that already.)
Dentists recommend that a toothbrush be kept at least six feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush. (My bathroom is not six feet wide °°)
The average person falls asleep in seven minutes.
(I'm so not average then.)
Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated. (Jesse! Quick.)
Dreamt" is the only word in the English language that ends in "mt".
(Let's see if I can prove wrong. Maybe in a century, when language changed again.)
It's impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.
(I wish there was one of those visitor counters that adds one every time someone tries it after reading this. I think I will next time.PS: Lucky it's not considered rude to close your eyes.)
A cockroach can live for 10 days without a head.
(Urgh, that's how they survived. "Please God, never make me a cockroach.")
Brains are more active sleeping than watching TV.
(That must be wrong. It has to be.)
12. There are more chickens than people in the world.
(Thank God. We're not the only population that will go down due to excess soon.)
The average person presses the snooze button on their alarm clock three Times each
(That can't be true. My housemate just let's it go off on its own over and over again... for hours.)
The first owner of the Marlboro cigarette Company died of lung cancer. (HA, I knew smoking was bad.)
Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.
(Is that the proof that blonds are dumb?)
When the moon is directly overhead, you weigh slightly less.
(I wish I'd known when I had an eating disorder.)
"I am." is the shortest complete sentence in the English language. (No way!)
Right handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left handed People do.
(Now I'm worried about my Dad.)
If the population of China walked past you in single line, the line Would never end because of the rate of reproduction. (Speechless.)
According to Genesis 1:20-22, the chicken came before the egg. (Finally, an answer.)
If a statue of a person in the park on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle.
If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle.
If the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.
(For all my writer friends.)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
(Maybe Hollywood isn't so wrong after all.)
23.Most lipstick contains fish scales.
(I'm sorry Susan, I had to tell you. Don't be angry, you're pretty anyway.)
More quick laughs:
|Who's afraid of my Wolf?|
|Professor Dr. Eisenstein|
The lucky elephant stumbled across the threshold and toppled onto his nose.
What does that mean? Where is the sense? Is there any coherence at all?
Most likely not.
Confusion, to a degree, is one of my great pleasures. I love creative writing, pretty obvious when looking at my blog. It's pure fun to play with words, to argue about the exact meaning of language, about the precise detail that a combination of words entails. The fascination of language has struck my life and now acts as a 'perpetuum mobile' of creativity and clarity.
As you see, it's not so much my fault. Writing is how I deal with things, how I calm down, how I see the world and use it for my own purposes.
Others find that quite annoying. I say things that don't make sense - for others. For me, there is always a link, a link to the whys and hows.
Enough with the psychology. Analysing myself isn't such a smart idea anyway. I'll leave that to you. My work will be full of me (uh, maybe I shouldn't admit that so publicly).
I'm German. From Berlin. Lived in Florida. Lived in Leicester, UK. Still live, but don't really know where exactly.
I'm studying creative writing and film studies.
Why film? I'm a series geek. It's as simple as that. Watching TV has pretty much been the only thing that my parents tried to forbid me. Didn't really have much impact after all. I watch about 9 series at the time, from supernatural ones to comedy up to serious drama. It's a pleasure and, sorry I'm saying this, also life. Not reality? I would argue with that. There is so much truth behind everything. I'm glad I can use that realisation for my writing now.
My social life:
This is not the right place to talk about that. Just so you know, this is public. I would never say something that private on here. (PS: It will be hidden in my stories.) [Memo to myself: stop being so damn honest]
