"Snoring destroys brain cells."
I was noticing it was getting harder to think.

"The average chocolate bar has eight insect legs in it."
Does this cause anyone some issues with eating chocolate? Maybe someone whose name starts with a T? I would assume the insect legs would be found in pretty much every form of chocolate and that they only gave the average for the bar form.

"In England in the 1880s, pants was considered a dirty word."

"On average, people forget 80 percent of what they learn."
So how long until my mind is blissfully empty?
