I had no idea dragonflies could move that fast. I also don't have an answer for you..

By the way, your Friday facts has inspired me to do a weekly "gross shit you wish you didn't know" series. I hope you don't mind :)

I thought the Japanese were so healthy because of there diet. Now I know they live so long because they are pickled. Bye bye low carb hello saki! Pam

I figure I have made you wait long enough...
the answer is:

A: Nobody knows where they are buried.

Jen said...
