Who'd A Thought?

Three or Four?
 ~*~

'Orville Wright numbered the eggs that his chickens produced so that he could eat them in the order they were laid.

The oldest person on record is Methuselah.'  He was 969 years old.

'Leonardo da Vinci could write with the one hand and draw with the other simultaneously.

Thomas Jefferson wrote his own epitaph without mentioning he was US president.

An exocannibal eats only enemies. An indocannibal eats only friends.' You think this is where 'with friends like that who needs enemies'  comes from?

And last but not least...

'In 1973, confectionery salesman Roland Ohisson was buried in a casket made entirely of chocolate.'

    1. Good morning, Anne Marie. I can see the 4th on one end, but it makes my eyes cross to try and follow the lines to the other end.

    1. Me too, CJ. I've always heard old as Methuselah but I didn't realize he was supposedly over 900 years old.

    1. Da Vinci was a wonder. Can you imagine being able to write and draw at the same time. I can't even draw if its the only thing I'm doing.

  5. Da Vinci was a genius so i can see that. Orville, I think, had OCD and the chocolate coffin guy is just weird. If I were the widow I would change the casket and eat the chocolate...yes strange but hey..It's chocolate!

  6. In the bronze age people were lucky to make it to 35, and in a age of advanced healthcare and medicine the longest person who ever lived (with real records to prove it) made it to 122.

    Lets just say I'm a little skeptical about the 969 thing.

  13. Ha!! The comment about DaVinci reminds me of the day when I came home from work... and my then-wife told me that I needed to get our son, who had just learned to write cursive.... to write his name for me.

    So I went back to his room... he was playing... and told him that I heard he had learned to write his name and that I would love to see it!

    So he gets a piece of paper... and a crayon... and writes his first name left-handed... switches hands... and writes his last name right-handed.

    Somewhat stunned, I asked to see it again... and he did it exactly the same way.

    I was telling my Dad about it the next day.... and Dad got this most stunned look on his face... he said, 'that's exactly how my Dad wrote HIS name...'

    My son is no DaVinci (nor am I...)
