The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer. 

So did the first ‘Marlboro Man’. 
Walt Disney was afraid



The three most valuable and most common or popular “brand names” on earth: 

Coca Cola, 


in that order. 

I like to add some brands too here.  When I was little if everyone wanted to take a picture they would say, “let’s take Kodak.…”

And when one sees wearing any sunglasses, they’d say “Oh look he’s wearing a “Ray Ban…”

Another one which is very interesting too, if you ran out of toothpaste, instead of asking someone, do you have toothpaste? They rather ask, “do you have Colgate...?

It is possible to lead a cow upstairs… 

but, not downstairs. 

A duck’s quack doesn’t echo, 

and no one knows why. 
Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush 
be kept at least six (6) feet away from 
a toilet to avoid airborne particles 
resulting from the flush.  Sanitary reason to always put lid

down before flushing. 

 ( hmmm I am a dentist myself but I didn’t know that, until now hahaha…
I keep my toothbrush in the living room from now on!)

    I love it when I can learn so many new things at my age!

  2. Reblogged this on and commented:
    I guess you really don’t ever know what you don’t know until you learn something you know you never knew.

  3. Reblogged this on A FRESH START and commented:

  4. I checked with my doctor about this. He said there are four kinds of coconuts: A, B, AB, and O– and you better make sure you’ve got the right one before asking for a transfusion… : )

  5. OMG!! I love the one about turtles being able to breathe through their butts! Turtles happen to be my favorite animal in the whole wide world and I never knew that 🙂
    Thanks for the super, great trivia. I can’t wait to share it!

  6. I have to admit, the toothbrush thing…is truly unsettling. my daughter is notorious for leaving her contact case open and on the sink…oh the horror.

    Enjoy your day.

  7. Okay, I’m always guilty pf over thinking everything, so if you can lead a cow up steps but not down, how do you get them down? I’m just curious, and I like apples, but I’m not giving up my coffee for them, I’ll just have coffee with them.
    These are great, Thanks for the post.

  8. Very good! 🙂

  9. these were truly AMAZING factoids!!

  11. Uhm, wouldn’t being the only planet that goes clockwise be the exception to the rule? The ‘black sheep’ of the planetary family? Here’s one – do you know why firemen use dalmations as fire house dogs? they’re the only dogs stupid enough to go into a burning building!

    Great post – more!

  12. Hmmm, Venus spins clockwise . . . makes sense to me . . . you know the thing about women, going in the right direction and all. LOL

  13. Those are all very interesting! I always enjoy reading this kind of stuff!

  14. Cool facts! I should print this out, because I know my kids will ask me at least a few of these questions. Finally I’ll have an answer! 🙂

I'm delighted to hear from you :) Merci, beaucoup to all who clicked LIKE...
