Turnips are root vegetables. They don't grow on trees.

1. Could very well possibly be true...I have seen some adults who can't spell for shit!! And a lot of 5th and 6th graders that can do math and put some of us older folks to shame ~LoL~

2. I don't really care ~LoL~

3. That is an absolute false...absolutely. I can guarantee this one is wrong!

4. Another one I don't care about~

5. False~

6. Good God, there is no such thing as turnip trees....could it be they meant turnip greens?? ~LoL~

7. No clue.

8. I've never noticed which direction they do turn, so your guess is as good as mine on this one~

9. Huh?? I've seen rats go at it, and they weren't upside down~

10. What's it doing on the shuttle anyway?? And one of the astronaut dudes prolly gave the damn thing something to shut it up before they took off, so they didn't have to listen to the damn cock-a-doodle-dooing!
