Your toilet probably flushes in E-flat

Where would we be without the internet? How would we ever know this kind of amazingly useful information?

An estimated 2.6 billion people worldwide do not have access to proper toilet facilities, particularly in rural areas of China and India. . . . → Read More: Your toilet probably flushes in E-flat

A woman got caught in a storm system that lifted her above the height of Mt. Everest in under 10 minutes. No oxygen. She blacked out. When she came to, she had fallen to below 7000 . . . → Read More: Flying woman freezes, falls, and survives

Swiping a sirloin is certainly stupid
