  1. Even though it features in one of the best known stories of all time, frankincense still remains a
    bit of a mystery. There is a difference between certified and “contains” organic ingredients.
    They are, however, very important, as they help to increase collagen production.

    It’s in fact very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on TV,
    therefore I only use web for that purpose, and obtain the hottest information.

    An average of 26 people die in elevators each year in the U.S. That one about elevators is completely FALSE

      Dying in an elevator doesn’t necessarily imply free-falling. If I recall correctly, I read that a number of people dying in elevators was due to being caught in the door when it starts moving.

        Look at the Markham Colliery disaster. An elevator carrying miners crashed into the bottom of the pit due to a brake rod failure killing 18 miners

    Ohk then let me defunk some of these facts. There are at least two records of people dying in elevator plunges – Both in the Empire State building. Secondly the whole ‘Bunny trance’ thing – complete bullshit. I’ve owned three rabbits and done that to all of the and scratched their tummies – they get up when they want to.

    The term “hipster” actually originated from the NYC opium dens. People would lay down on their sides and smoke opium, giving some of the patrons bruised hips. Thus, the term “hipster”.

    I was in an elevator that free fell three stories and threw me against the back wall. My back is still messed up. I have a hard time believing that one.

      You didn’t die. They’re not saying an elevator never free fell (fell free?), just that it never killed someone doing it.

      • Fabian Godoy wrote:

        Nice page but I have to say the elevator fact is absolutely false. I happen to be an elevator specialist. Elevators kill 30 people a year worldwide (so its rare, but does happen). Just last year my company was hired to do the engineering investigation for a elevator that free fell and killed a 9 year old boy in Tennessee.

    The elevator free-fall stat is wrong. Google “killed by free falling elevators” and see.

    Did you know that, that picture of the jet is not breaking the sound barrier? It is flying very fast (subsonic) thru dense humid air.

    Hey how interesting I didn’t know the Messerschmitt Me 262 was flying around america during WW2 and instead of the people shitting themselves that there is a working plane of German design, enemies at the time, with wings that spouted screaming flaming death they instead stopped looked up and said, wow now that’s a “blow job” :3

    That’s interesting. How many vaginas does a male kangaroo have?

    So they didn’t want to write that baby hedgehogs looks like scrotums, so they just said “this is what baby hedgehogs look like” and put a picture.

    Well played.
