Traivial Trivia

Standard

The ancient Egyptians worshiped cats as gods. Any cat owner can tell you that cats have never gotten over it!

If you were to spell out numbers you would have to get to 1000 before you found the letter “A”.

Chimneys used to be cleaned by dropping live chickens down them.

The average human being will accidentally eat about a pound in weight of insects over the course of a lifetime.

  1. That’s really interesting. I never thought about it but there are no A’s before a thousand!

    A pound of bugs huh, eww. Oh well, I hear they are great protein. Here’s a sort of related fact: In India, members of the Jain religion don’t eat onions, potatoes or any other food that grows under the ground because they don’t want to kill any insects. (they hold all life in high esteem- I call it extreme vegetarianism) Some even wear scarves across their faces so they don’t accidentally inhale and kill insects.

  2. ARE U SURE THERES NO A BEFORE WE GET TO 1000. WHAT ABOUT HUNDRED AND ONE AND SO ON . THEY DONT COUNT?
    SOME OF THE INCARNATIONS OF GOD ARE ANIMALS AND BIRDS .

  3. LVISS, there is no A in hundred or one.

    These are really interesting facts. I love these. Isn’t it awfully gross about the bugs?? Eeewwwww….

  4. 1. Look at any cat. It knows it’s a god.
    2. Didn’t know that!
    3. If the chimney was lit you could clean and cook all at once!
    4. Don’t wanna even THINK about the bugs.

  5. Cats, Bah Humbug a waste of space. Maybe replace the chicken with a cat, now that’s a good idea. Dixie made me say that.
    But what about a half. That’s part of a number
    “But I don’t want to be a chimney cleaner” (Chicken run, the other version)
