You know what? I think you guys like my random facts.  I suppose I’m supposed to credit where I got them from but truly, I don’t know.  I just Googled random facts and picked and chose them so now I don’t really know who to credit.  Also, if they’re facts aren’t they just knowledge that anyone can see? Who knows? Just saying …

    I don’t like these factoids. I despise enrichment. Shame on you for selflessly Googling stuff for me and saving me the trip the Internets. Fie and shame, I say!

    As you’ve probably determined, I have nothing but fine things to say about your product. Please continue sharing them with us weekly. I love your blog, and am strangely comforted by the fact that someone views the world through the same frosted, stained, and probably oily lens that I do. Also, praise Jesus that I don’t have to shell out the money for that porcupine sex ed class. That teacher looked strange and smelled weirder. I should Google “how porcupine pee smells”, but it’s probably not as effective an instructor as the real thing. I should go to the zoo. TO THE FATMOBILE!

    Here is a fun fact for you. There is a type of moth that starts out life as a Slug Moth Caterpillar. This little grub is mostly pretty cute but has some spiky spiny cactusy looking things at each end. These cactusy things are called “urticating bristles.” (My sister just wrote about these guys on her blog, nativebackyard.)

    “Urticating” means they will give you (if you touch them) urticaria, which is an inflamed/red/itchy/painful skin reaction. I think women should have been issued with a set that we can deactivate, but only if we want to.

    You’re welcome. :-)
