Did you know... 6/16/2011

Did You Know...

* More species of bats live in Texas than in any other part of the United States.

* Amarillo has the world's largest helium well.

* In the mid 1980s, the employee cafeteria at Motorola in Austin had to stop serving food that contained poppy seeds because people showed false positives for opium when they were drug tested. Since then, the company reintroduced poppy seeds, and added Valium and several anti-depressants to a list of things not to bother testing for.

* In Houston it is illegal to sell Limburger cheese on Sunday.

* In Odessa, Texas the star of David and the peace symbol are forbidden by the city's dress code because they are considered to be Satanic symbols.

* The city of Lubbock does not have any storm drains.

* In Lefors, it is illegal to take more than three swallows of beer at any time while standing.

* The second largest rock in the nation is Enchanted Rock which has an exposed surface area of 130 square miles, which lies on the border between Gillespie and Llano Counties.

* In Texas, it is still a "hanging offense" to steal cattle.

And so it goes!
