    A blind, bald, near deaf man was struck by lightning and all three conditions were fixed.

    Edwin Robinson had lost his sight and most of his hearing in a truck accident years before.

    Even a near deaf man would not venture out during a thunderstorm but Edwin had to because of his chicken.
    After his accident, Edwin had adopted a chicken that he named Tuck Tuck (after the sounds it made).

    As luck would have it, the lightning bounced off of a tree and went right into his hearing aids, blowing them right out of his ears.

    He was on the ground for several minutes before he got up and walked back into the house and told his wife “I think I’ve been hit by lightning... I can read that plaque on the wall.”

    He read it aloud, but his wife just thought he had memorized it. She told him to tell her what time it was and he recited it perfectly. His vision was returned to 20/20, his hearing was back, and within a few weeks hair started to grow on his head that had been bald for most of his life.

    Researchers have proved that 11-week-old fetuses yawn. Yawns become contagious to people between the first and second years of life. When one person in a group yawns, over half of the people in the group will yawn within 5 minutes, and the rest will at least be tempted to yawn. Even animals yawn when they see another animal yawn. The average duration of a yawn is about 6 seconds, and guys yawn for longer than girls. There is a 50% chance that you will yawn after reading this :snooze:

    You know, I've been randomly browsing the web for the past hour and I came across something REALLY INTERESTING :D

    Now whether that's a fact or fiction is up to you. Suffice it to say it's an official information bit gathered, indexed and assigned importance to by the coveted Google algorithm :D


    North India and South India by Google Inc (I took screenshots myself LOL):
