Did you know that the the flu vaccine is made through chicken eggs, takes a few months to make enough for everyone and scientists have to guess the strain (they may be mistaken sometimes) since the scientists make it before flu season.

…and even worse it is chocolate ice cream he does not like.
Reminds me of an email I got around the 2008 elections:
Quote
In honor of the 44th President of the United States , Ben & Jerry's has introduced a new flavor: "Barocky Road."

Barocky Road is a blend of half vanilla, half chocolate, and surrounded by nuts and flakes.

The vanilla portion of the mix is not openly advertised and usually denied as an ingredient.

The nuts and flakes are all very bitter and hard to swallow.

The cost is $100.00 per scoop.

When purchased it will be presented to you in a large beautiful cone, but then the ice cream is taken away and given to the person in line behind you.

You are left with an empty wallet and no change, holding an empty cone with no hope of getting any ice cream.

Are you stimulated?

Did you know that a sneeze can travel at over 100MPH, for that reason it can be dangerous to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck, break some teeth,  burst an eardrum and sever your tongue amongst other things, Some older people have even died due to supressing a sneeze.

Haven't verified this, but:

"In the family tree of Kate Middleton, wife of Prince William, Kate's mother is Carol Middleton, daughter of Ronald Goldsmith and Dorothy Harrison (both Jews).

The parents of Dorothy Harrison are Robert Harrison and Elizabeth Temple (both Jews).

Elizabeth Temple is a descendant of the Myers family, English Jews in the 19th century.

BOTTOM LINE: Princess Kate is a Jew on her matriarchal side. The future king of England will be a Jew according to Jewish Law."
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

They did look into the yichus, and they found that for the past 5 genrations the family got married in churches. If there was jewish yichus it's highly doubtful it's still there.  Additionally I don't think that kate's mother's mother was jewish, just the father.
