Evidently, the second least common birthdate is Christmas.
(right behind leap day, February 29th)
The third least common birthdate is New Year's Day.
The most common birthdate is September 16th, which boasts a conceiving date of Christmas Eve...
and.
On average the 13th of every month has the fewest birthdates...

sigh...

In designating Harry Truman's middle name his parents couldn't decide which grandfather (maternal or paternal) to honor; however with both forebears sporting a name starting with the letter S, it was decided to simply use the initial and let everybody else figure it out.

It is inefficient to bang your head against a wall as it only burns on average 150 calories an hour.  You would do better to minimize the amount of cream and sugar you add to your coffee. 
~~to say nothing about your typical coffee milkshakes ubiquitously available everywhere...

The word 'muscle' is derived from the Latin musculus, diminutive of mus, which means 'mouse'.
...as it was thought that their form was often mouse-like in appearance.
It is questionable if 'hamstring' is derived from hamsters but we shall make inquiries.
maybe.

My anatomy class resolves many issues for students about the form, structure and articulation of the varied and numerous body parts: internal, deep and superficial. ~~However some issues, not being under the specific purview of the class, are left unresolved --such as why it is that noses run and feet smell.

The Bourdaloue was originally designed for women, although men used it as well --likely without asking permission; it was purportedly named after a Catholic priest in France named Louis Bourdaloue, whose sermons were so long that women brought their Bourdaloue with them so they could attend the entire sermon, uninterrupted.
Sometimes it's all to easy to see what that would look like...

Never neglect the ears.
They influence, in one way or another, the sense of balance within your drawing and without it.

If you are in the habit of drawing untoward images you are likely creating in your viewer a sense of revulsion and attraction at the same time. 
a nice balance...

One would think that the heart is the busiest muscle(s) in the body, however one would be thinking incorrectly.  The eye muscles are the most active with over 100,000 shifts & shuffles in a typical day.
I must now flex my eyes and get back to my drawing.

I likes my coffee.
I likes my coffee dark, full bodied and black.
I draw the line, however, at Kopi Luwak.
...and it ain't the $600 a pound price tag either!

In mid-1600s England one could attend a Penny University for the one cent price of admission.  This penny would grant you access to all manner of news, a good fire, meeting opportunities with friends for business, debate or pleasure, perhaps a game of chess and most importantly a dish or two of coffee.
