    You burn more calories sleeping
    than you do watching television.

    So if I sleep with the TV on, do I burn more still ?

    Do you ever watch Mythbusters? They did one episode on the duck quack and found out it did actually echo and one on the toothbrush thing and found it to make no difference where you keep it, other than around your kitchen sink where it picked up the most bacteria.

    They do some really interesting shows. Their methods are a little strange, but it is fun to watch!

    Man, just when we thought we knew it all! Snopes also says a duck quack will echo by the way.

    what to believe. I read:

    Betsy Ross did not design our first flag.

    And James Watt did not invent the steam engine.

    And Marie Antoinette did not say, "Let them eat cake."

    So it's hard to get a firm grasp on reality at times. (That's why I always consult my astrologer.)

    I've always liked to say "I don't need drugs, I can escape from reality at will!"

    Wish that was still true! Can't even trust my old sayings!
