I’ve got a bunch of “Amazing Facts” type books lying around the house, but, I obviously only trust those written by a certain author.
My son found one and just read this ‘fact’ to me (which I also found on several websites online):
If one places a minute amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death.
Even if I could, and, in this area, I suppose I could, I certainly would not go around seeking out scorpions to douse with precious alcohol so they can (if this is true) off themselves, but I am now eager to know if it is a proven fact.
So, not finding anything in my SD books, or on the archives, I’m resigned (boo hoo) (kidding!) to ask the Teeming Millions, what’s the Straight Dope?
