      Imagine all the naughty people who decided to sneak a cow into the house and take her upstairs (I can't imagine what for)- walking her up was fine - but then she can't walk down. Now what?

      I just got finished reading your other trivia hub - fun stuff. And trivia is often useful too! Many thanks!

      Veronica, I never knew that either, I guess that explains the sting you feel when they sink them into your skin. Thanks Veronica for reading.

      Really loved reading this Hub and have bookmarked it. No 22 - I usually know when a sneeze is coming on, so next time I will try opening my eyes open wide to see if I can avoid even blinking. lol.

      Ps. No 21. Oh, I didn't know that. I can't look at lipstick the same way.

      Best Wishes for 2010. :)
