These are not your typical wonder tales (defined as stories with magical, mystical elements). These are my wonder tales--things I wonder about, like:
How is that a person knows when another person is looking at them? Try this: as you drive on the interstate, pass someone and look at them. About 75% of the time, they will look back at you. How do they know you're looking? If you don't look at them, they won't look at you. If they look at you, you'll look at them. Try it! And let me know your results.
Here's another: why is it, when I get a sudden chill and shiver all over, do I say "someone's walking on my grave?" What's that about? I've searched online but come up with no explanation for that statement. My mother used to say it, so I assume it's a British thing. But what does a shiver have to do with someone walking on my grave? I don't even have a grave yet! (Thank goodness)
And then, what about this? I tried it and I swear it's true. Strike a match in the bathroom when it's really stinky (for 'natural' reasons) and the odor will disappear.
Why and how does this work? Try it yourself and let me know if it works for you.
