    Interesting that dogs LOVE to stick their head out the window of a car and have wind blowing on them at fairly high velocity, yet they get mad if you blow in their face.

    On another thread, someone was discussing the moon and I have observed that in other cultures, the people see different things up there. Here's one that's off the wall- In Japan, they see a rabbit holding a mallet and pounding glutinous rice in a mortar! :shock: Wonder if there are any other cultures in which they see something totally mundane, like a human face! :lol:

    Why is it when you're totally insane with things to do, more and more things keep popping up...but when you have nothing to do, nothing comes along. It's always either crazy busy or dull and slow. :?

    Report about Japanese housewives' "secret money stashes" says the average savings is $20,000! In Japan, most men let their wives take care of the finances, and a lot of them "put a little away on the side" without their husbands' knowledge. :shock:

    Another report said 56% of the (Japanese) population is (financially) needy. Maybe it's due to the above? :shock: :lol:
  8. Sneaky Sneaky! :lol: I'm sure the Japanese wives aren't the only ones that share this ole pastime! :lol:

    It is. I can think of many many many things to do with that pile of cash.

    Still perusing Livescience and found some other odd(and hilarious) facts!

    "When ferrets watch the mind-bending movie 'The Matrix', brain activity is only slightly higher than when they stare at nothing."

    Could it be Keanu Reeves' "wooden" acting? :lol:

    In Japanese, the words for "husband" and "prisoner" are almost identical! For "husband", one says "shujin"(pronounced "SHOO-jin") and for "prisoner", just say the "SHOO" part a little longer! (Like "SHOOO-jin") :lol:
    It's true :twisted: !
