-I have met at least two people who could lick their elbows, including my own sister who does so on a regular basis to show off!
-Dogs are not colourblind, they just see in muted colour:


How horses see colour:


(No wonder they think everything is food!)

-When a horse is ridden on the bit/collected/in frame, he is looking at the ground directly in front of him.
-Despite what is often said, A.D. does not stand for After Death, it is actually Anno Domini, which in Latin means "In the year of our Lord".
-Today's horses descended from the Hyracotherium, a dog-sized mammal also known as "the Dawn Horse".

Up for a ride? lol

I might sound like an idiot, but what is a two-way mirror?

It's actually a window with a mirrored side, so that from one side you can see right through it and on the other side it just appears to be a mirror.
Creepy creepy!

This would be a two way mirror the cop can see the interview going on, but the criminal only sees a mirrow. On one side its a window and the other side is a mirror

You just tried it.



Thinking you've disproved that fact you realize I'm lying.




Now you're laughing at yourself cause you feel like an idiot.
hahaha wow that was great!

My second toe is longer than my big toe
I can wrap my leg around my head
My thumbs are double-jointed
I can lick the back of my teeth =P

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
