I laugh a lot in school days only, but stress and depression catch up anyway.

A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! :)

:) they r GREAT...but the 24th. fact is a bit incorrect... the knee cartilages have no blood supply either

This was great!

does it mean anything if i chew opposite my dominant hand?

Fairly common for left-handed people to be forced to write with the right hand, thereby making that fact seem incorrect. I am one such example of such. I cannot write left handed, but use the left hand for pretty much everything else.

I knew laughing is good, didn't like the sneezing part =/
