    I can see why a cow wouldn’t go downstairs. Instinctively they know that their bodies can’t put weight in that direction. That’s the only one that didn’t surprise me!! Haha!

  7. I knew a couple of those. The toothbrushes are kept in the kitchen cupboard – but that’s so the cockroaches in the bathroom don’t crawl over them…..

  8. A duck quacked outside as I reached that one! Spooky……

  9. I bet pearls dissolve, like many things, in Cola. I wont say the trade name….

  16. Coconuts? Blood plasma? That’s incredible! Cheers for the facts, very interesting. 🙂
