Very Cool boo!

I'd like to add one more:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

That's a Pangram, which is a sentence that uses every letter of the alphabet. It's often used to test typewriter and computer keyboards.

Hello Boo, very interesting things in english, we have a lot like that in french, I.E for the number Pi (3.14...) Que J'Aime A Faire Apprendre Un Nombre Utile Aux Sages etc...(Que=3 J'=1 Aime=4 Faire=5 Apprendre=9 Un=2 Nombre=6 Utile=5 Aux=3 Sages=5 ...etc this sentence is so long and never ended like you know..it takes a very big dome in the "Palais de la Découverte" in Paris, another one is to remember about the Cétacées (dolphin etc..) "Cétacée dit la Baleine au Dauphin, je me Cachalot" and many other we call them "moyens mnémotechniques" because of the ancient greek "mnémos = memory".

The one about the colors of rainbow made me laugh...
