At the moment of death, the human body loses 42 grams of weight, what it actually is has never been explained.


It seems that the soles of your feet are actually heavier than your soul.

Wrong! The shortest verse in the bible is "He said" its in Job somewhere... but i can't rember right now...


Well, technically they are both two words long, unless you're going by some translations which make the verse actually say "AND Jesus wept." Small differences.

Actually, totemo is right.  It's John 11:35.  I'll have to look in Job for that verse, but I'm pretty sure that it's one of those that changes from version to version.

- The first commercial anime came out in 1917.  I forgot its name, but it was so bad, that all traces of it were destroyed.  Nobody even knows what technique was used for the animation, but a popular belief is taking many pictures of a chalkboard (kinda like South Park).


Might you be talking about Gertie the Dinosaur

 more like 4950.  The heads picture weighs more, so it ends up on the bottom.
