The correct response to the Irish greeting, "Top of the morning to you," is "and the rest of the day to yourself." (Can't wait to meet an Irishman.)

Hacky-sack was invented in Turkey.

The southern most city in the United States is Na'alehu, Hawaii.

...more?? Okay.

The older we get, the more slowly we breathe. (Great, just one more thing to look forward to.)

It never occurred to the inventor of cornflakes to put milk on them.

Just one more....

The only place in the universe where a flag flies all day, never goes up or comes down, never flies at half-mast and does not get saluted, is the moon.

And now you know . . .

So if you remember anytime that you hung out with any of my family members.... they have a lot of this...We even named it: RUK (Random Useless Knowledge)...

I'll call my brother for questions on everything because he's full of RUK! heehee!

I've found that the more RUK you have , the better you do on IQ test! You can never have enough RUK!
