      No one could really sneeze with his eyes open.
      I had tried it with my eyes open but it seems a fake sneeze. :D

      I can believe that one :) I have tried before to keep my eyes open when sneezing and it is absolutely impossible for me lol, I did once hear that when you sneeze if you sneeze with your eyes open your eyes pop out of you eye socket :confused:

      Can agree there, of every search engine I have used and every other email I have used google has always been the best by far and they just keep getting better :)

      Another interesting fact:

      Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

      Cats have poor taste.
      They cannot taste sweet flavors and a cat only has 473 taste buds compared to our 9,000.:winktongue:

      Really? Wow! My cat is always eating things like pieces of cake that may have dropped on the floor, I once caught her eating chocolate my son had left on a table, does make you wonder why they do eat these if they are unable to taste them

      Another interesting fact :)

      Montpelier, VT is the only U.S. state capital without a McDonalds.

      Hershey's Kisses are called that because the machine that makes them looks like it's kissing the conveyor belt. ;)

      Really? I didn't know that. I actually have a friend over in Pennsylvania who was eating some of these a few months back and he told me they got their name because of where they was made, which is Hershey, Pennsylvania but I have also taken a look on google which does state that it was because of the machine :)

      A place with no pubs, now that is a first :) usually everywhere you go there is a pub in sight :)

      It's because untill it was recently sold Cadbury was owned by the Cadbury family who were Quakers and own all of Bourneville, hence no Pubs :)
