15 More Days of School!

There are 15 more days of school to go!

3 weeks!

90 more hours of class time!

It’s not like I’m counting or anything…

Anyway, I thought I would write a post to celebrate.  Here are 15 facts to celebrate the near end of another year of learning.

  1. Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a “Friday the 13th.”
  2. Coca-Cola would be green if coloring weren’t added.
  3. Right handed people, on average, live 9 years longer the left handed people.
  4. Women blink nearly twice as much as men.
  5. Owls are the only bird that can see the color blue.
  6. It is possible to sneeze with your eyes open. (but it requires skills that I don’t possess)
  7. It’s against the law to burp or sneeze in a church in Nebraska.
  8. Earth is the only planet that isn’t named after a god.
  9. More people are allergic to cow’s milk than any other food.
