Do You Know?

Apologies for not updating,I haven’t updated since Tuesday,was really busy. I went to my nephew’s prize-giving ceremony and it was fun.

I love watching Kids act drama or stage plays and I did just that,watching him sing,gesticulate and dance really got me laughing.

My favourite part was when the prince was meant to drive the princess back to the Castle,the prince rode roughly in a toy bike and the princess decided to get off it was so funny and the prince didn’t know she had gotten off and he still rode off.

As much as I love kids I get tired and right now I am. I got three kids bumping and jumping over me all in the name of playing.

Today’s Do you know is very funny and I hope you enjoy it.

Do you know that:

In Medieval times the accused often faced a ” trial by ordeal,” where they were forced to stick their arm into a vat of boiling water. If their arm emerged unscathed, it was believed God protected them, thus proving their innocence. (Talk about cheating)

In the 16th and 17th century wealthy Europeans ate corpses thinking they’d cure them of ailments.
They even ate the remains of Egyptian mummies, which tomb raiders risked their lives to steal.

In the 15th century Romanian ruler Vlad the Impaler impaled 20,000 Ottoman Turkson long, sharp poles on the banks of the Danube.
Vlad also enjoyed sopping up his enemies’ blood with bread and eating it. This disturbing practice, along with his family name of Dracula and birthplace of Transylvania, inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula .

The Romans used human urine as mouthwash.

Roman Emperor Gaius made his beloved horse a senator.

Ice age Britons used skulls of the dead as cups.

After Pope Gregory IX associated cats with devil worship, cats throughout Europe were exterminated in droves.
This sudden lack of cats led to the spread of disease because infected rats ran free. The most devastating of these diseases, the Bubonic Plague, killed 100 million people.
(A case of not appreciating what you have until its gone)

In early Rome a father could legally kill anyone in his family. (If that had continued we wouldn’t have a black sheep in any family)

To ends today’s Do you know a few jokes I couldn’t help but add.

While visiting a country school, the chairman of the Board Of Education became provoked at the noise the unruly students were making in the next room.
Angrily, he opened the door and grabbed one of the taller boys who seemed to be doing most of the talking. He dragged the boy to the next room and stood him in the corner.
A few minutes later, a small boy stuck his head in the room and pleaded, “Please, sir, may we have our teacher back?”

During the shooting of a movie.
DIRECTOR: Now we are going to release the lion and it will chase you…but don’t worry it wont bite you.
GUY: How sure are you?
DIRECTOR: It is written in the script.
GUY: Has the lion read the script?

Teacher: “If you had one dollar and you asked your father for another, how many dollars would you have?”
Vincent: “One dollar.”
Teacher: “You don’t know your arithmetic.”
Vincent: “You don’t know my father.”

Have a great day!
