What you know....can kill you!

When does knowing a fact turn into something that "you are not supposed to know?"  Usually when a fact becomes embarrassing or upsetting to the person who also knows that fact.  I know many facts about many people, so I am surprised that they do not treat me nicer cause I could really do some damage. (LOL) But alas, I am a better person so I will just tell you some facts that I know that are more senseless, but nevertheless, if I come up missing YOU WILL KNOW WHY!!! 
ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! Not for the non risk takers. 

Two Atomic Bombs were dropped on North Carolina:  At least it wasn't the moon....right?   I obtain my information from author Russ Kick, from a book called "Things You Are Not Supposed To Know".  Very entertaining read when living on the edge.  Okay, back on subject.  On January 24th, 1961, about half past midnight, A B-52 with two nukes was over the skies of North Carolina exploded killing three crewmen. The bombs were 250 times more powerful than the one dropped on Hiroshima fell to the earth....luckily neither of them exploded BUT.  A half of a bomb is still in the swamps, never been retrieved. 

The U.S. runs a network of at least 20 secret prisons.....and if I told you where they were, I would really be shot!  Just know that they are all over the world. 

NOW on a lighter note: 

Here are some facts that you can know and are good to know so it WON'T kill you.  (can't have my readers having bad dreams now can I?)

We are going to talk about Beer right now... so if you get offended easily I suggest you just skip to the bottom.  I only know these facts because I talk to random people who served ramen noodles at their wedding receptions, the kind who actually know what kind of leaves to use as toilet paper?  You know the kine? (in my pigeon accent).  I am not a beer drinker, never had it, probably never will but these are good things to know to keep your mind off the above. 

Zythology (zith-owl-oh-gee).  The study of beer and beer making, including the role particular ingredients play in the brewing process. 

The first professional brewers were all women. 

HOPS uses in beer are in the same family of flowering plants as marijuana. 

Beer contains almost all of the minerals we need to survive, in fact, it was a staple of many diets during the European Middle Ages. 

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine found that beer raises HDL cholesterol (the good kind). 

BEER PREVENTS KIDNEY STONES!!!  A study published in the American Journal of epidemiology found that beer consumption reduced the risk of kidney stones by 40%.  AND it strengthens your bones by protecting the bone-mineral density of the bone tissue. 

Cenosillicaphobia:  The fear of an empty beer glass. 

Do you feel better now?  Cause I sure do.  I cannot keep a secret..the reason why I was kicked out of the CIA.  LOL.
