- Eating a tablespoon of nutmeg can make you high.
- I don't know that fact from experience. :P

Fact- It can also kill you! Woohoo!
More facts, some horsey, some not
-I found an empty can of monster and half empty nutmeg jar the other day. I said, "Wow, nutmeg and monster? TERRIBLE idea!"
-Horses can get herpes!
-An STD killed a HUGE portion of good horses in Europe in the 19th century.
-Horses can only make 6 sounds
-About 10 species of moths drink tears. One specifically only drinks elephant tears!
-Horses are the second slowest chewers in the animal kingdom (generally)
-Wild horses have bigger brains than domesticated horses!
-Vampire bats have killed people! ...From rabies.
-If you spin a hard boiled egg fast enough it will start jumping and jump off the table!
-Some mice have been genetically engineered so their heart glows green every beat!
-When a horse jumps, each knee does 85% of the work of each leg.
-Stallions more often left sided than mares, who are more right sided. (I would assume it means geldings too.)
-Recently bees have been used instead of dogs for sniff testing food and even explosives.
-Pronking or stotting is the act of jumping straight up and back down again in the same spot.
And now for some animal groupings!
a clowder of cats
a flamboyance of flamingos
a leap of leopards
a lounge of lizards
a pandemonium of parrots
a prickle of porcupines
a rhumba of rattlesnakes
a sounder of swine
a wisdom of wombats
a zeal of zebras

Most of these facts are courtesy of "Fish that Fake Orgasms (and other zoological curiosities)" Also known as "Moths that Drink Elephant Tears" in the UK. Wonderful wonderful book.
Yes this took long. I'm home sick.
