You do realize that if you thought about these 29 things for more than the time it takes to read them... you would go totally insane? And... why 29... why not just one more to make it an even 30? Did we run out of weird things to think about? Perhaps, whoever thought of these only made it to #29 before going crazy and being led off in a straight jacket to the funny farm.
