Did You Know...?

More Americans now die from misuse of prescriptions drugs--including anti-depressants, painkillers, and sleeping pills--than from heroin and cocaine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. Fatalities due to drug overdoses have been rising dramatically in the U.S. since 1999, largely because of the abuse of prescription drugs.

And did you know that an elephant can eat between 300 and 600 pounds of food a day? And that it poops about 250 pounds a day?
You could use stationery made from elephant poop.
Does it smell?
