    (Just found legal murder weapons...)


    Clinophobia is the fear of beds

    weird fact:

    if you point your two index fingers out parallel to the ground, and lay something long across them like a ruler, or a pencil or something similar, keeping your fingers at the each end of the object, and push your hands towards each other keeping your fingers pointed out, your two fingers will ALWAYS meet exactly at the middle of the object and create a balance point.
