Interesting . . .

A kind of hobby of mine is collecting weird facts. I usually end my e-mails to my offspring with one. I thought it might be fun to post a few (I found these on the internet . . . surely they're true!):

The largest living thing on the face of the Earth is a mushroom underground in Oregon, it measures three and a half miles in diameter.

Napoleon made his battle plans in a sandbox.

A surfer once sued another surfer for "stealing his wave." The case was thrown out because the court was unable to put a price on "pain and suffering" endured by the surfer watching someone else ride "his" wave.

In Israel, religious law forbids picking your nose on Sabbath.

See ya! (That's not a weird fact. . . and it's probably true, but maybe not.)

I really like the surfer fact. It made me laugh.
