Bonus Challenge: Sit in a chair, and make CLOCKWISE circles with your right foot. Now, (at the same time) with your right hand draw the number "6" (in the air of course)...Is your foot still going clockwise?


In comments, disagreements, are you as bored as I am, and whose right foot is "smart..."


P.S. My toothbrush now resides in the Living Room.

Q said...

The pig orgasm one is absolutely a fact. I don't want to get into how I know this, but wow is it impressive...

Nina said...

Tera, honey, get some work done.

I want to be a pig in my next life )

Tera said...

Q~LOL! I don't want you to get into how you know this either!

Nina~I know, aren't I terrible? I just can't get focused after that long and boring meeting this morning!!!

Q said...

I can totally make stroking motions with my right hand and point my foot away from me...wait...I may have misunderstood your bonus challenge, carry on

Tera said...

Q~You are bad, bad, bad!!!

fringes said...

Q makes me laugh...

heather said...

i never thought i would be envious of a pig! lol
btw, the tag's been done and posted. sorry it took so long.:-)

EsLocura said...

I admire pigs. But I am curious as to who discovered the orgasm thing and was the pig just faking it?

Anonymous said...

Wait, I am sure that females can orgasm for 30 minutes or at the minimum five times in 30 minutes and then once after the fact. By the way thanks for the useless facts

Q said...

Eslocura, it wasn't me. Quit looking at me like that. It totally wasn't me...

Tera said...

Fringes~Me too!

Heather~We need nothing of the sort to happen to us as females...aren't men's heads big enough? ;)

Es~It was TOTALLY Q!

Anon~I knew that one was right up your alley ;) I beg to differ

Q~There you go fabricating the truth again!

Tera said...

By the way...was anyone able to defeat the bonus challenge, or are all of your right feet now going COUNTERclockwise?!?!?!

Dagromm said...

Ok, I don't get how you know how long a goldfish's memory span is.

heather said...

lol, didn't think about that part of it.

Tera said...

Dagromm~I have the tendency to bump into those little strange facts all the time! I as well as you wonder who had the time to measure that---or even cared to!

Heather~LOL!

Susan said...

I just realized I'm a goldfish.

..and that my right foot is a stupid, stupid foot.

Tera said...

Susan~LOL! I'm usually a goldfish on Fridays, so don't feel bad! Yeah...that foot thing is bizarre!

Nance said...

ouch. reading this post and comments feels too much like math.

...if a train going south at 120 miles an hour...

Tera said...

Nance~LOL! Math is my forte!

Celebrate Woo-Woo said...

That #4 is precisely why I must close seat and lid before flushing. Unfortunately, I do remember seeing some Dateline / Primetime / 20/20 special on that which showed the spread of germs was inevitable regardless of where you put your toothbrush in your house. Now that I've raised germaphobia levels in everyone, have a wonderful weekend;>

Tera said...

Woo-Woo~WELCOME! And uh, yeah, especially for someone like me who is already borderline OCD when it comes to germs!!! Thanks a lot!

You have a great weekend too! ;)

Dagromm said...

Do you think that being related to the chicken is embarrassing to the T-Rex? That's a large drop in the food chain.

EsLocura said...

why does Q defend the "pig" thing so strongly? guilt? envy? hmmm

ever see a naked neck chicken? just like a t-rex

heather said...

lol kiddo, you are now a self professed goldfish who has some expertise in hummers. ;-)

Anali said...

Unfortunately I learned a couple of these the hard way. Luckily it wasn't 1 or 2! In my old office building, the water would splash up so fiercely, that I would have to practically jump out of the stall to escape the spray. And I think I hurt my back trying to hold my eyes open when I had to sneeze and I was driving.

Tera said...

Dagromm~I'm sure he knows nothing about it! ;)

Es~Good question Q...

Naked neck chicken...I don't like that visual! :)

Heather~Just on Fridays ;)

Anali~At least we know you're nimble and multi-task oriented!

mist1 said...

Nothing rhymes with cusp either. That bothers me.

Tera said...

Mist~You know, you're right! I had to think about it for a minute though, because I am one who loves to make up my own words!

Induced Homomorphism said...

You totally can sneeze with your eyes open. It won't happen naturally, but if you make a conscious effort, you can.

When I told this to my grandparents, I spoke to them on the phone a week later and they told me they were doing it.

Tera said...

IH~Welcome! That's good to know...I'll have to try it next time I sneeze :)

NoRegrets said...

thanks, this made me lol. but sorry, not mao. too tired for that. off to nap.
I won't go back and look and see if you respnded to me on all these. Maybe. who knows...ok, sleep.

Susan said...

Yep, still a goldfish. Nothing's changed.

Kofi said...

30 minutes, huh?

And it's not easy, but I can do the 6 /clockwise right foot thing. I think it has something to do with those organ lessons from my dark past.
