    No piece of paper can be folded more than 7 times.

    Lies. I just tried this and I got 8 folds. (Granted, it was a little hard towards the end but it was done.)

    In the course of an average lifetime you will, while sleeping, eat 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders.

    Yummy! XD

        I’m going to guess that they’re saying that the paper can’t be folded IN HALF more than seven times. I can fold a paper as many times as I want if I just use the edges and stuff. 🙂

      yes…that’s why those are the most coveted spots on a department store floor (in the US market anyway)…reserved for the beauty counters with the best relationships (with the store) and highest sales. i learnt that bit while at EL NY 😉

        I wonder if they go on honeymoons.

        I’m pretty sure I can lick my elbow. It doesn’t even seem that hard. I can do lots of strange things with my arms, though. I think my shoulders are double jointed, or something.

    I knew about the 10 spiders thing, however I didn’t know about the 70 different kinds of bugs you eat. And I have to say, that’s digusting.

    And I walk straight into a department store. UNLESS you can’t, then I walk left. I’m a weirdo I guess.

    The stores totally play to the walking to the right thing too. Men do it too, so they make sure the really cool sales and whatnot are on the right. At the store I worked at anyway 🙂
