Did you know . . .

OK I have to admit that I am sending this one out without checking to see if it is true or not. I thought it was cute.

Did you know . . .

'Stewardesses'    is the longest word typed with only the left hand
And 'lollipop'   is the longest word typed with your right hand.   (Bet you tried this out mentally, didn't you?)

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.
'Dreamt
' is the only English word that ends in the letters 'mt'.? (Are you doubting this?)

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears  never stop growing.

The sentence: 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' uses every letter of the alphabet. 

(Now, you KNOW you're going to try this out for accuracy, right?)

The words 'racecar,'   'kayak'    and 'level'   are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).   (Yep, I knew you were going to 'do' this one.)

There are only four words in the English language which end in 'dous': tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. (You're not doubting this, are you?)

There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: 'abstemious' and 'facetious.'

(Yes, admit it, you are going to say, a e i o u)

TYPEWRITER  is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.   (All you typists are going to test this out)

Channelofhealing, something new, change is nice, thanks for sharing. This is really cool, I actually had to check the TYPEWRITER out, it works.

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. - lol, thank God my head was growing faster or at the same rate, otherwise I would really look funny with those big ears, and the small nose, lol.

You wrote: The sentence: 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' uses every letter of the alphabet. - did you know that this sentence is also used in the font file.

Thanks for sharing and hope all is well, Anna :)
