wait a minute...then how the hell did Fred Flinstone always order Brontasaurus Burgers?



True story: I once wrote Fred Fintstone down as an answer on a test in high school, and the idiot next to me copied it. We both got in trouble. The teacher was trying not to laugh.

When Henry Ford broke the land speed record, he had his assistant blow into the motor because it was pre carb days. Yes. This is something nobody knew and it's so obscure that if you were to google it the NSA may come knocking.

Owls are not bothered by the odor of a skunk. In fact, large owls, attack, kill and eat skunks whenever they find them.
The owl is just about the only natural enemy that the skunk has.
