Random. . .

Here are four random tidbits of knowledge I've learned lately:
1. Old people ARE happy! There's an article in the latest TIME magazine that I like on this. Click here to read it. (At least click there and see the article's headline and the picture of that man!)
2. Nancy Cartwright who does the voice of Bart Simpson was offered the chance to do the female voices for South Park, but turned it down because she felt the show was too offensive.
3. A scientific report from the University of California found that the steam rising from a cup of coffee contains the same amounts of antioxidants as three oranges. The antioxidants are heterocyclic compounds which prevents cancer and heart disease. It's good for you!
4. A duck's quack doesn't echo and no one knows why.

[Knowing those four things enhances your day, right?]
