    A new addition to the astronaut selection procedure will include the shortest amount of time a candidate can blow up an enormous inflatable beach ball. Those that faint in the process can go home immediately.

    The song "Deep In The Heart Of Texas" originated as an English corruption of a Mexican standard about the first Greco-Hindu Mexican, Deipinda Hartataxis.

    Texas is so big, most of it has not been discovered yet and what has been discovered is probably the tip of the iceberg.

    Saudi Arabia's water shortage has been overcome with the government planting of 10000 desert acres with watermelons. The water harvested from the watermelons will allow closing of most of the expensive desalination plants on the coast.

    The daring rescue of two ill people at the Amundsen-Scott Station turned tragic when both rescued persons suddenly overcame and absorbed the Chilean medical team working on them.

    Workshop participates at the 2016 High Energy Physics Conference in Las Vegas were really impressed with the newest supplier of collider equipment, the Bowflex Max Collider being the star of the show. By linking all the Bowflex Max Colliders in the hotel gym and the convention floor, protons were accelerated to 26 GeV in just a 20 minute workout.

    If you link two Wiis to two Kinect systems with corner mirrors (accurately angled at 90 degrees), in each of the four corners of your room, you can keep yourself busy for hours by holding a placard on your chest saying "Now Turn Round"

    When Abraham Lincoln invented the Lincoln Log building set little did he know that simple child's toy would lead to war between the South and their choice, Legos.

    Claims of Joseph Priestley being the inventor of the rubber erasor are being questioned ever since the original documents containing the proof turned out to be nothing more than a stack of blank papers in January 2013.

    Rodin made the thinker by taking a real thinking man who was stuck on a precursor of Suduko, and covering him with plaster of paris bandages making a perfect cast. After choosing the cut lines and separating the cast to make a mould, the man was still stuck until Rodin pointed out his mistake at line 2 row 3. He went on to become the model for Hercules and the serpent. But that failed because the serpent would not stay still.

    With the test results in, it has been confirmed that the so-called Egyptian Pyramids are actually stony(chondrite) meteorites and not human built.

    The Mexican Army was the first military to use reactive armor but the burrito vest did not work as well as planned.

    Our Sun's brown dwarf companion was finally discovered residing in a gated community in Tampa. The alleged killer of the inner system was given immunity by Federal Witness Relocation for information it has on other dark stellar masses.
