Random Thursday

So nothing new on the Disney Desk Calendar front. So far no more mistakes either. But this past two weeks have had a lot of Pinocchio pictures. But oh well. Onto That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [Updated] by Harry Bright and Jakob Anser!

"Walking corpse syndrome is a rare mental disorder where sufferers imagine they are decomposing, dead, or nonexistent. There is no known cure."

Wow. That's scary, and very sad.


"Snake oil actually has curative powers. High in omega-3 fatty acids, snake oil is effective in treating symptoms related to arthritis, as well as preventing heart disease, stroke, and even depression."

More intriguing facts. Though...I don't think I'd want to ingest this stuff. Betting on that it has to be ingested to cure all!
