    i find these statements strange and funny. however not all of them are true.

    to give you some examples :

    1 cannot be true for we would all be sick now.we are mostly addicted to this madly sweet substance called choc.

    10 cannot be proved because it depends on the producer of the gas, is he an eater of onions and garlic, brocolli, or mostlt salad and fruit like hollywood stars ?

    11 the word 'assasination ' wasnt invented by shakespeare. it is derived from the arabic word , hhashasheen . they were a group of men used by one of mulouk al tawa'ef who gave them hhasheesh and ordered them to kill his enemies while they werent conscious of their deeds. the word entered the english dictionary and was changed into ' hhashasheen .' this shows us the effects of drugs on thse who take them and also shows how some english words are derived from arabic, esp hhashasheen .

    They sure are strange, funny and interesting. I love chocolates, please tell me you just made this one up, I don't care about the rest if they are true, just the first one.

    Farah, I really like this girl's cute face on your avatar, do you know her personally? Her cheeks are so pinchable, lol. Makes me feel like pinching them while singing the cuppy cake song.

    Source(s): Fatma: Your cheeks must be pinched by someone too while singing the cuppy cake so now you're traumatized? I know...it sucks to be cute sometimes. Lol!
