Things We Learn From Children



1. A king-size water bed contains enough water to fill a 2,000-square-foot
home 2 inches deep.


2. A 3-year-old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.


3. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller
blades they can ignite.


4. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh", it's already too late.


5. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke ... and lots of it.


6. "Play Dough" and "microwave" should never be used in the same sentence.


7. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool, you still can't
walk on water.


8. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.


9. Always look in the oven BEFORE you turn it on.


10. The local fire department has a 10-minute response time.



Special Note:

60 percent of the male readers of the above will try mixing brake fluid and bleach.

Now all we have to do is find out what grade of brake fluid we need....

On another note, Automatic transmission fluid poured down the intake = lots of white smoke out of the tailpipe.

7:15 AM...I look north from my window toward the Baltimore skyline. No cloud of smoke as yet.

Here was the original that I remember ...
-----------------------------

For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious. For those who have children this age, this is not funny. For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning. For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control.

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas:

Things I've learned from my Children (honest & no kidding):

1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3. A 3-year old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh," it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9. A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.

10. Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old.

11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12. Super glue is forever.

13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15. VCR's do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18. You probably do not want to know what that odor is.

19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on. Plastic toys do not like ovens.

20. The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute response time.

21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24. The mind of a 6-year old is wonderful. First grade...true story:

25. 60% of men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

Why is it that the brake fluid/ Clorox deal is the first thing that sticks in everbodys mind?


Anybody try it yet? Does it??????
