    Number 7 is a good reminder that we are potentially vulnerable. Now I have to wonder about hair color and deodarant; I feel better about all the moisturizers available – uh, kinda, what’s in those products.

    Actually i’m pretty sure I didn’t want to know about the whole fish scales in lipstick thing, really makes you want to go out and kiss a lady NOT… but I will definitely be switching from a morning banana to an apple since I am not old enough to drink that nasty coffee stuff HA… Keep up the good work Bottleawada, big fan of the site my brotha

    I’m not really sure about #6. Europe is known as a continent, but it starts with an “E” and ends with an “E.” And the America’s is two continents: North – and South America. If you talk about just “America” then it would fit. I’m just a stupid guy from South Africa. Do I understand #6 correct? please share with us.

    Hey Andre,

    In some parts of the world such as Europe, children are taught that there are six continents. In the U.S. and presumably South Africa, Students are taught that there are seven. Cheers.
