The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory rule (you can't get out of it!) - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, send me an email, and let me know! So, without further ado, here are the Kristin from My Bookish Ways!
1. Why do we sing about the London Bridge falling down if it's still standing?
A couple of really uplifting and fun theories surround what the song is about. Some think it refers to the difficulty of bridging the River Thames, but other theories include possible Viking attack, age and damage of the bridge, and my personal fave, child sacrifice. This pleasant theory states that children were buried alive in the foundation because it was believed that the bridge would collapse unless a human sacrifice was made. More happy facts about the song can be found HERE.
2. If Mars had earthquakes, would we have to call them Marsquakes?
Well, yeah, cause an article on space.com says so: Check it.
3. So many Americans choose Chinese letters as tattoos - do the Chinese choose English words for theirs?
I’m fairly sure they might consider that tacky…
4. Why does lemon juice contain artificial flavouring if lemon dish soap contains real lemons?
That’s one of those questions that we might never know the answer to. Believe me, I’ve lost sleep over it.
5. Can bald people get dandruff?
I’m so glad you asked! The answer is, in fact, yes! ‘Cause dandruff is all the nasty little dead skin cells that falls off of your dry, parched little scalp. No hair needed! So, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Or wear a hair net. I prefer to use a moisturizing shampoo, but that’s just me.
Kristin, thanks SO much for playing along and answering all my silly questions because, Lord knows, I have a ton of these! By the way, I love your answer to the dandruff question. I feel so knowledgeable now. As for the rest of you, be sure to check out Kristin's awesome blog, My Bookish Ways!
