Fan is short for Fanatic!

Fans of celebrities love to express their love for the target of their obsession by by writing letters to them under some false hope they that they will actually sit though the mountains of post that accumulates over the days.

But did you know...
Nazi leader Adolph Hitler received more fan mail that The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Madonna ever have, combined! Not only that, Hitler did this within the 12 years that he was in power

If you where wondering, totalling 3.5 million letters, Charles Lindbergh Holds the World record for receiving the most fan mail ever after his historic journey - the first non-stop transatlantic flight. US baseball star Hank Aaron holds the world record for person receiving the most fan mail on one year - 900,000 letters. Elvis Presley holds the largest fan club (or he did when it was measured in 2000) with 510,489 members.

I wonder what would happen if I moved to the North Pole and changed my name to Santa Claus. I'd start a paper recycling company, that's what I'd do!

To Eat an Entire Cow.

Often I claim to be so hungry that I cam capable of eating an entire cow. This is never true.

I may hear you asking "but lighterside, how long would it take me to eat an entire cow?" Well...

A single cow, on average, yields 800lb of edible meat.

I think it's reasonable to say that you could eat 1/2lb of beef per meal and remain moderately healthy. So you would finish it in around six months.

I do love beef, but not that much.
