This is such an opened ended way to start a sentence/question. My husband's boss (in his late 70's or early 80's)will tell my husband random facts starting with this phrase.
I love to hear random facts so if someone has a "Did you know..." they would like to share,
I am all ears.

Did You Know... that we are our own Temporal Progeny? If you read a Recent Post of Mine, in which I referred to Temporal Progeny, You May Know. However, for those who are just now Tuning In, I'll give a Little Background on The Subject:
I believe Temporal Progeny was coined by Dr. Daniel Gilbert in his Classic Book, "Stumbling on Happiness". Basically, in my own Conceptual Wording, the Present Us makes plans for the Future Us. The Present Us can look back on the Past Us and see where we've been. The Present Us are like the Children of the Past Us and are usually critical of the Past Us.
Hey- Did You Know that I have no BOLD or ITALICS or UNDERLINE Icons on my Message Area? Did You Know that I used Quotation Marks instead of Underlining the Book Title?
While we're on these Did You Knows, and I made reference to my Temporal Progeny, I was thinking about the time I bought the Blue Funk, my antique Chevy pickup. Did You Know, that at the time, that I Didn't Know where the Battery or Brake Master Cylinder was located? Nowadays most every Vehicle has both in the Engine Compartment area. But way back when, the Master Cylinder was under the Driver's Side Floorpan and the Battery was under the Passenger Side Floorpan.
Did you know that Bonnie Paker, of Bonnie and Clyde fame, was severly burnt by battery acid in an MVA? I surmise that when the car rolled over, Bonnie was in the passenger seat, the Battery was under her Floorboard, and she was burned by acid leaking from a damaged Battery.
Did You Realize (Know) that I used a more Temporary Term in reference to the Floor of the Vehicle? In the past they were referred to as Floorpans. A more common reference nowadays is Floorboards. Or so it would seem.
Okay- that's Enough.
