  • Im not sure about some of these facts. Like I know that chalk in a toolbox doesn't prevent rusting. First hand experience.

    And there is no way your thumb can be the size of your nose. I dont think there is any correlation for any body part being size related to another body part. For example, the arm span being the exact same as your height. Theyre just not true.

    • Yeah I figured some of those random facts seem a bit far fetched. I actually tried the thumb one. It's surprisingly spot on. I guess some have a bit of leeway. Did you do it yours? Lol

  • #5... if only. IF ONLY.
    I have girlfriends who can do that swallowing-the-sneeze thing... you know what I'm talking about? Where there's no explosion phase at all, and they just make a little cute letter "t" noise and then "excuse me"?

    For me, there is NO way to prevent a sneeze. If I even try any sort of sneeze-prevention mechanism, all that happens is that the snot just gets propelled at a greater velocity, and it's that much more likely to end up in someone else's face. (Think of sticking a finger in a garden hose... yeah, that water's still comin' out.)

    I've learned this the hard way.

    But, srsly, y'all have such cute stuff these days. Back in the '80's, we had tampons in plain packaging, and... other tampons in plain packaging. Even maxi pads weren't too much of a thing, yet.
