Think You Know Everything??

1. Maine is the only state whose name is just one syllable.

2. No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.

3. "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt".

4. Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.

5. The sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet.

6. The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).

7. There are only four words in the English language which end in "dous": tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

8. There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: "abstemious" and "facetious."

9. TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.

10. All 50 states are listed across the top of the Lincoln Memorial on the back of the $5 bill

11. A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.

12. A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

13. A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.

14. A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

15. A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.

And to think most of the information you passed on was probably discovered by a group of heavy thinkers with a ton of our money from the Government.
