Weird But "True"... From An 11 Yr. Old Boy

This morning, as I was gazing out the window, enjoying the beautiful spring colors the sun's rays were enhancing, my son decided it was the right time to provide us with his latest revelation.

This was really quite an astonishing bit of trivia and I knew immediately it was a fact I needed to share with the world, or at the very least, those who might choose to drop by my blog.

Did you know that one of the causes of Global Warming is a combination of termites and rotting houses? That's right! According to Nathan, "It's true!" It seems when old houses rot, the termites get in there and start munching away. Evidently termites really like old, rotting houses, and they tend to overindulge, which it may surprise you to learn, results in gas! Yup! I heard it straight from the mouth of he who knows all, my 11 year old son. The termites eat the rotting old houses, and in Nathan's own words, "They fart!", and this is one of the reasons for global warming.

Now, aren't you glad you stopped by today?
