  1. Well I guess these are not useless facts because though it may seem that they've got no use for our life, it is a simple reminder that we are overlooking some things in life and there are a lot of things that it is quite interesting to know.

    Pero ung iba dito useful, gaya nung chocolates sa dogs and sneezing.

    Nakakaaliw naman itong Amerikano na bumili ng ari ni Napoleon. Anu pa kaya gamit nun eh di na yun sasaludo, hahahaha.. :D
