                          ARE YOU NORMAL - PART II
                            - Submitted by Tom Zickenberg
             Facts about Americans. Did you know that...

And here is PART II of ARE YOU NORMAL - A survey done of Americans,
about their habits and actions.
And as we commented yesterday, don't forget - 90% of the respondents
have said that they have lied in their life. So it's up
to you to figure out if there are telling the truth or not.

   (and probably 4 out of 5 can't sing for beans either)
* 12% of men never use their car blinkers.
* 45% of us consistantly follow the speed limit.
   (This is hard to believe - Get on a highway and go the exact
    speed limit. Are 45% of the people not passing you - I doubt it)

* 1/3 of us don't wear seat belts.
* 71% can drive a stick-shift car.
* 44% of men tailgate to speed up the person in front of them.
   (Hint from Jokemaster: When this happens, accelerate while 
    simultaneously touching your brake - just enough so the break 
    light goes on - scaring the crap out of the guy behing you)
