    A hawk keeps flying into a guy's chicken coop and killing them. The guy tries waiting inside the coop with his shotgun,.. but the hawk is smart, it sees the guy go in, and won't fly into the coop until he comes back out.

    The guy talks to his friend, who comes over, and the two of them walk into the chicken coop. Then only the friend comes back out, couple of minutes later the hawk flies in and gets blasted,.. hawks are smart, but they can't count.

    In the 1970s, Mattel sold a doll called "Growing Up Skipper." Her breasts grew when her arm was turned.

    :cool: until I twisted her arm off

    Are you sure it wasn't your own arm you twisted off?

    You probably know that during filming of the original Star Wars trilogy, David Prowse, the actor in the Darth Vader costume, would deliver the lines during filming, and James Earl Jones' voice was added in post production. Here the LKF....when Empire Strikes Back was filmed, the script given to everyone for the light saber duel and the critical plot twist read:
    DV: Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father.
    LS: He told me enough. He told me you killed him.
    DV: No, Obi Wan killed your father.

    And that's how it was shot. Only George Lucas, the head writer and Mark Hamill knew that Jones would be saying, "No, I am your father."

    I read somewhere that, saber tooth lions are the only species known to have gone extinct, and then later to re-emerge in a different part of the world. Evidence shows this has happened multiple times throughout history, but again only with saber toothed lions.

    :cool: must be kinda like a default setting in the feline DNA
