~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:


+ First things first:


+ Really. I mean it.

+ Don't cheat.

+ This is a little game that has a pretty funny outcome.
+ Don't read ahead, just do it in order.
+ It takes about 3 minutes
+ It's worth it.
+ It's kinda eerie. . . .

+ First, Get a blank piece of paper and pen.

+ P.S. When you are asked to choose names, make sure it's people you ACTUALLY KNOW, and go with your first instincts!

+ Scroll down one line at a time - don't read ahead or you'll ruin the fun!!
+ Are you ready spaghetti. . . .

+ 1.) First, write the numbers 1 through 11 down a column.

+ 2.) Then, beside numbers 1 and 2, write any two numbers you want.

+ 3.) Beside the 3 and 7, write down the names of members of the opposite sex. Don't look ahead-or it won't turn out right!

+ 4.) Write anyone's name (like friends or family. . .) in the 4th, 5th and 6th spots. Don't cheat or you'll be upset that you did.

+ 5.) Write down four song titles in 8, 9, 10 and 11.

+ 6.) Finally, make a wish. . . ..

+ And here is the key for that game..

+ 1.) You must tell (the number in space 2) people about this game in (the number in space 1) days in order to make your wish come true.

+ 2.) The person in space 3 is the one that you love.

+ 3.) The person in 7 is one you like but can't work out.

+ 4.) You care most about the person you put in 4.

+ 5.) The person you name in number 5 is the one who knows you very well.

+ 6.) The person you name in 6 is your lucky star

+ 7.) The song in 8 is the song that matches with the person in 3

+ 8.) The title in 9 is the song for the person in 7.

+ 9.) The tenth space is the song that tells you most about your mind.

+ 10.) And 11 is the song telling how you feel about life!

+ GOOD LUCK :o) [3]


This guy goes to a pet shop to buy a parrot. There he sees a parrot with a red string tied to its left leg and a green string tied to it's right leg. He asks the owner the significance of the strings.

"Well, this is a highly trained parrot. If you pull the red string he speaks French; if you pull the green string he speaks German," replies the shop keeper.

"And what happens if I pull both the strings?" our curious shopper inquires.

"I fall off my perch you fool!!" screeches the parrot. [4]

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Beavers have orange teeth! Beavers use their front teeth (two on the top and two on the bottom) to gnaw through bark, branches, and tree trunks. These teeth have an extremely tough orange coating that protects them from being broken or chipped while cutting wood. Beavers' strong teeth make them efficient wood cutters; it takes them only 30 seconds to gnaw through a branch the size of a rolling pin.
