  1. If the Earth was actually smooth, the oceans would cover the entire surface of the planet to a depth of 12,000 feet.
  2. Karate was not invented in China. It actually originated in India.
  3. ‘Ariel’, from “New Kid In School” and “Kiss Of An Angel”, is a very real boy indeed! I had such an infatuation with him! Hehehe! But… his FIRST appearance in my stories didn’t occur in “Angel”, OR “New Kid”. Even though I changed his name… this super shy art student first appeared in one of the first stories I ever wrote for the site! “Boy Next Door”! Yep… that’s him. Sighhhh… so cute!
  4. If someone is flipping a coin, call tails. The odds are slightly better. The design of the ‘face’ on the heads side is heavier, so it’s more likely to land face down. (Call heads if they catch it in their hand and flip it over, of course.)
  5. There are two different types of cannibals. Exo-cannibals eat their enemies to gain their strength. Indo-cannibals eat their friends and loved ones to keep them close.
