Hey Grit

A few interesting facts I found today.

 1) The only reason that firehouses (stations) have round staircases is because, in the days when they were horsedrawn, the horses, stabled on the ground floor, learned how to walk up straight stairs.

2) One for you my friend. Did you know that Michigan was the first state to have roadside picnic tables?

3) The phrase “rule of thumb” is derived from an old English law, which stated that you could not beat your wife anything wider than your thumb.

4) More people are killed by donkey’s each year than die in air crashes.
