(1) 300 million years ago... dragonflies the size of eagles and cockroaches the size of small dogs roamed the earth!

(2) In 1912, 49-year-old "Granny" Anderson of Staples, Texas, had her intestines ripped out when a cow gored her. The doctor washed the wound with tap water, replaced her innards and sewed her up and she went on to live to age 105!

(3) Karoshi is the Japanese word for death from working too much!
