Random late night Wikipediaings

in lieu of counting sheep, i wikipedia the random things i’m wondering about whilst waiting to fall asleep each night.

here are my nightly queries for the last two and a half weeks:

what’s the deal with cowlicks?
does the FCC let you say “wtf” on the radio?
How old is Justin Timberlake? (I wanted to see how little I’ve done in my life versus this successful child.)
Origin of tables and chairs.
Bear Grylls’ bio.
The expression “have some hair from the tail of the dog that bit you”.
Crime scene cleanups
“come and get your love” lyrics.
Law of diminishing returns.
Capital of Rwanda.
How to opt out of junk mail.
Climbs Everest with a guide (I was trying to remember the word “sherpa”)
Where to buy “save water, shower with a friend” bumper stickers.
Little Black Sambo.
What was Sophie’s choice?
Geo tracker standard colors.
The many children of Rod Stewart.
What ever happened to Baby Jessica?

    Greendimes.com is a great way to get rid of junk mail.

    You know what I don’t understand? “The skin of your teeth.”

    Thank you for the nice comment, Linda.

    I did a bit of research and found this:
    “If you pass a test by just a few points or win a contest by a tiny bit, people might say you did so ‘by the skin of your teeth’. In other words, you just barely did it. The only problem with this expression is that your teeth don’t have skin! But sometimes they have a film on them, especially first thing in the morning. If you feel that sticky film, it’s time to brush your teeth!”

    I hope that was informative and entertaining.

    If you are curious as to my Wikipediaings of last night, I will tell you. I looked up Darva Conger and now I am so angry at Mr. Rick Rockwell for destroying the nursing career of that sweet woman. Let that be a lesson to you- the net worth of your gentleman suitor MUST be verified prior to an official union.
