I have learned that there is such a thing as a cotton candy martini and that there are people with fetishes for intercourse performed in wheelchairs.

It is amazing what you see on the OV KW tool that seems rather unrelated to what you search for.

Orkut, now there's place to learn some really interesting stuff (from a purely educational point of view ... really), and learn about a whole bunch of interesting stuff that is so freaky and bizzare you really wish you never knew it existed or that anybody ever did it (REALLY).

Well I learned something today- Chinese customers swearing at you on the phone in fluent Engrish are really rather amusing to listen to.

I've learned how to knit. I've learned some Spanish. I've learned how NOT to wear a wig. I've learned how to sneak a dog into a hospital. I've learned how to grow cucumbers. I've learned what airport screeners are really looking for in your bags. I've learned how to escape from the local county jail.

And the stuff that I've learned that's job-related is waaaaay more strange.

I mainly use WT and for some time i was sooo sick of seeing offensive search phrases when kw researching almost any subject/theme ...You know there are so many pedophiles and sick fetish people out there :(

Now i turned the adult filter ON in WT and things are much better!

I learned that the local phone company's billing servers don't communicate with the servers that actually control the network.

They do, however, communicate with the systems that track long distance.

It's possible to have an active phone line, with all the custom calling features you could ever want, and never receive a bill for it.

But place one long distance call, and they'll hunt you down.

Crackhead means different things to different people. In Boston, a real crackhead (not an affiliate) took offense. :)
