"Once all the Germans
Were warlike, and mean,
But that couldn't happen again.
We taught them a lesson
In nineteen-eighteen,
And they've hardly bothered us since then!"

Ha, that must have been written in 1920.

Each year, the US buries enough caskets to use;

30 million ft of hardwood
90,272 tons of steel
2,700 tons of copper and bronze

Why do zippers have a YKK on them? Whats it stand for?

The YKK stands for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha. In 1934 Tadao Yoshida founded Yoshida Industries Limited. This company is now the worlds foremost zipper manufacturer, making about 90% of all zippers in over 206 facilities in 52 countries.
They also make the machines that make the zippers.

This is a small sample (about 2,000 employees), but there is only one person at my work with an October 5th birthday. There are 9 with October 10th and 9 with October 31st birthdays.

I am days too late for that statistic, but I know three people born on my birthday and one person the day before and one after.

The average pregnancy lasts 274 days. Oct. 5, he wrote in an e-mail, is about 274 days from New Year's Eve, the day millions of Americans are celebrating with alcohol.
Can we deduce from that fact that a lot of Americans are drunkard's children?

One of my cow orkers at my old job got pregnant at our state conference. Our conferences can get a little crazy. She and her husband got a darling girl out of the deal.

So, what happens at conference does not always stay at conference!

Yeah, I know that wasn't clear. They weren't married then, but had been together for a while. He worked in IT at the same school where we worked, so went along to conference as a guest and probably sat in on some technical breakout sessions. We'd all had a drunken night: took a bus to Dave and Busters and had a blast. Some more than others, apparently.
