Weird - 3rd Edition

Today, I'm going to share some things with you that are scientifically true, but at least one will cause you to disbelieve me. So wake up and pay attention!
No, don't go reach for that cup of coffee, have an apple instead.
Apples are more efficient than caffeine in keeping people awake, especially in the mornings!
So get a good nights sleep and have an apple when you get up in the morning.
Did you dream?
A higher I.Q. equals more dreams: The smarter you are, the more you dream. A high I.Q. can also fight mental illness. Some people even believe they are smarter in their dreams than when they are awake.
Then why am I always in school (ah, smart!) and trying to hide the fact that I'm naked? No, it's not that, everybody else is dressed regularly. Could that be my Id explaining my being socially reticent and shy?
Lately, particularly in sports, it seems that more men are growing beards. Don't ask me! My beard gets more than 1/4 inch long and I start pulling it out in my sleep.
Facial hair grows faster than any other hair on the body. This is true for men as well as women. Do you remember Great Aunt Josephine and her mustache?
No! I refuse to believe this. You know the pictures of the "perfect women" that the media want us to believe exist? They improve the pictures by "airbrushing" them. Actually, you should say they are "HAIR-brushing them.
There are as many hairs per square inch on YOUR body as a chimpanzee.
Does that men who have thick hair all over them are closer to nature than those of us who have less hair?
Think about it. Do you know some man or woman who you know has a high I.Q. AND a hairy body?
While I know many people who have higher than average I.Q's, I only know one certified Genius.
He has almost invisible eye-brows; you can't see any hair on the back of his hands, fingers or the tops of his toe's. If you were out on a beach with him, it would be easy to convince you that he shaved his body. Women that know him tell him they are jealous his legs are so smooth.
However, he is a retired Marine officer. One day while talking with his former Sargent Major, I was told that he (the high IQ guy) was The Most Dangerous Man in the entire Marine Corps, including those "namby pambies" that called themselves Seals.
When asked what he did in the Marines, the former officer's answer was, "I taught young Marines how to break things and kill people more efficiently". When he didn't smile, I took him at his word.
He is now a Civilian Contract Adviser with the Marines. What does he do now? He teaches Generals and other Field Grade Officers to train their young men to break things and kill people more efficiently.
There are a lot more weird things out there in the world. I haven't begun to even scrape the surface.
