It's just a hobby, Louisiana resident Richard Gibson has kept every toenail and fingernail he has clipped since 1978. Mr Gibson, who keeps them in a jar on his mantelpiece, started his collection in a box but ran out of room and swapped to a big jar. "I have no idea how many nails are in the jar. It's well into the thousands."

Yuck!

  Very interesting information to know.
I did know that flamingos are pink because of what they eat, probably from watching the discovery channel or national geographic.
