percentage trivia

I like polls, it seems to put a new light on things for me. I don't
know how "The Source Circulation" comes up with their percents
but I do find it all pretty interesting. The nice thing about trivia is
you can take it one sip at a time. I hope you enjoy this type of
posting. Have an easy going day today is too hot to get riled up!

kids than they did two years ago.

Cuts and scrapes heal up to 25% faster on people who exercise
regularly.
