Trivial Thursday number five

TDSH--The blog that looks back at you!

From time to time I like to present weird trivia on Thursdays. Here's the latest edition:

Giant squids have eyes as big as watermelons.

A molasses flood killed 21 people and injured 150 people in Boston, Massachusetts on January 15, 1919.

In India, A 13-year-old boy urinated out winged beetles after eggs hatched inside his body.

In Britain, there are approximately 50,000 pubs with 17,000 different names.

The one about the boy is gross! And makes me cringe.

Wow, how many pubs? I gotta make a list, see if I can get to let's say...half of them. :D I would be good with half.

That is a lot of bitter. But I am willing to give it a try. :) Anything to get that bug story out of my mind.
