like...

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 Boy'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 Boy 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 Boy.

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 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.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.

25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

26.) Potatoes will not flush down the toilet--just out of sight.

The trouble with the walking on water is you are not using enough gelatin. It takes one pound per gallon of water. You then heat it to 130 degrees, then let it set. I use it as ballistics gel, very fun to play with and it is stiff enough to walk on. Although your pool heater may never be the same again.

Regarding #18:
Yesterday I smelled something weird in the house. I said, "What stinks?" My daughter responded, "It's [her brother's] butt."

As to #25, I was thinking of mixing it up myself. Wonder how much smoke it would make?

No clue. I suggest a Youtube video.

The joke probably meant Clorox not bleach, but mixing chlorine with anything other than water is a very, very stupid idea. A good way to kill yourself.

Hmm. I suppose Clorox probably doesn't have enough chlorine in it.

BTW you can use pool shock (sodium hypochlorite) with brake fluid to make the reaction. But if you really want to see a reaction: potassium permanganate and antifreeze. Potassium permanganate is used in water treatment to remove nasties from water. I don't know where a person could get it now, but when I was a kid I had, available to me a 30 gallon drum of the purple stuff and tried all sorts of experiments with it. The best was drilling a hole in a ping pong ball and filling it halfway with potassium, then using a syringe full of antifreeze, filling the rest of the way up and kicking it across the street. If i got the mix good, it wouldn't explode right away, but it would shoot fire out of the hole for a little bit and spin like crazy before erupting into flames

DO NOT TRY THIS--- The reaction is very fast and more then once I was almost burned very badly. Not safe at all. Thinking back now, a lot of the things I did as a kid would bring the feds down on me now. Aaron
