    "Go" is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.

    However scientists found that virtually every woman on the planet just have to give her significant other, "the look" and they don't even have to use the word go. It's pretty much understood
    So?

    Actually the microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket.
    Shame, I would've already eaten the chocolate. It would stand no chance.

    did you know that the plate tectonics model was only validated in the early 1960s. humanity travelled to space thinking the earth was a a static rock and earthquakes acts of god.
    yet we take it as one of the most widespread and accepted theories ever.

    insomnia is the most common sleep problem. Women are more likely than men to report insomnia. In fact, according to the 2002 NSF sleep in America poll, more women than men experience symptoms of insomnia at least a few nights a week and they are more likely to have daytime sleepiness.

    Sometimes women begin to have sleepless nights associated with menstruation, pregnancy or menopause and find it difficult to break poor sleep habits.

    Coca-Cola was invented by Atlanta-based pharmacist John S. Pemberton in 1886. But the name was conjured up by his bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, who was also a dab hand with a pen. He created the unique flowing script that became the Coca-Cola logo that is still used today.
