June 15 2009 Quotations Newsletter
Greetings Dear BellaOnline reader!
Well, June is half over and this Sunday is Father's Day already. Time feels like it's speeding up for some reason. Maybe it's that whole Mayan Calendar End-of-the-World-in-December-2012 thing.
Anyway, I hope this week's newsy finds you happy and healthy. Last week I posted several quotes for Father's Day so feel free to check them out for ideas on what to write in Dad's card:
"More Great Father's Day Quotations"
"Great Father's Day Quotations" -- this one has lots of links --
"Father's Day Quotes"
And remember to check out the quotes posted at our community forum all about Quotations located here -
Here's a pretty interesting list of fun human facts I found -- I think you'll enjoy them:
INTERESTING HUMAN BODY TRIVIA
- Scientists say the higher your I.Q. the more you dream.
- The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is the male sperm.
- You use 200 muscles just to take one step.
- A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands.
- A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.
- One human brain cell can hold five times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica.
- The average human dream lasts 2-3 seconds.
- Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil.
- The enamel in your teeth is the hardest substance in your body.
- Your thumb is the same length of your nose.
- You were born without knee caps …
Now you can pontificate at the next company gathering and impress the bosses. Or at least impress the receptionist at the convention center! It could also make for great blind-date conversation. Or not... So where do those mysterious knee caps come from anyway?
And with that, I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends because we all love spreading the knowledge and we adore sharing cool quotes!

8 years old: Daddy does not know quite everything.
