    This is Sooo Right on the money lately.
    If you love your plane, set it free, if it doesn\'\'t return, you should have checked the battery.

    Well, thats the way it was told to me anyway. I never heard the ham fisted thing before, but there are maybe 3 or 4 theories in all. I buy the magazine theory because so many old timer hams have told me that one. But hey, I also here that MG was started in a small shop called Mac's Garage, but who know's. lol That one sound weird to me, as I always thought that British Lealand was the maunf, not some dude named Mac ! hahaha !
    Actually the original MG was built in the Morris Garage... Leyland didn't get involved until many years later...

    Ocean.

    Cephalacaudal recapitulation is the reason our extremities develop faster than the rest of us.

    Spiral staircases in medieval castles are running clockwise. This is because all knights used to be right-handed. When the intruding army would climb the stairs they would not be able to use their right hand which was holding the sword because of the difficulties of climbing the stairs. Left-handed knights would have had no troubles, except left-handed people could never become knights because it was assumed that they were descendants of the devil.

    Ham radio operators got the term ''ham'' coined from the expression ''ham
    fisted operators,'' a term used to describe early radio users who sent Morse code (i.e., pounded their fist).

    The slogan on New Hampshire license plates is ''Live Free or Die.'' These

    whenua kitanatahua New Zealand hill.

    Los Angeles's full name is: ''El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Poriuncula'' and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size, ''LA.''

    Only 1 in 2,000,000,000 will live to be 116 or older.

    An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

    Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

    According to Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, it is possible to go slower than light and faster than light, but it is impossible to go the speed of light. Also, there is a particle called tackyon which is supposed to go faster than light. This means if you fire a tackyon beam, it travels before you fire it.

    When you tie a noose, the rope is wrapped twelve times around because it's the same length as a persons head.

    Hummingbirds are the only animal that can fly backwards.

    A cat's jaw cannot move sideways.
    I kept telling my mother-in-law there are only 2 kinds of cats. Hers and dead ones.
