Did you know...

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound

energy to heat up one cup of coffee.

(Hardly seems worth it.)

If you farted constantly for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the

energy of an atomic bomb.

(Now that's more like it.)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt

blood 30 feet.

(Oh my God!)

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.

(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live 9 days with out its head before it starves to death.

(Creepy, but I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head on the wall burns 150 calories an hour.

(Do not try this at home...maybe at work.)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is still attached to its body. The

female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

("Honey, I'm home. What the...?")

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a

football field.

(30 minutes...lucky pig...can you imagine???)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.

(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.

(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with they're feet.

(Something I've always wanted to know.)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.


Right-handed people live, on average, 9 years longer than left-handed people.

(If your ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.

(Okay, so that would be a good thing...)

A cat's urine glows under a black light.

(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that...)

Starfish have no brains.

(I know some people like that too.)

Polar bears are left-handed.

(If they switch they'll live longer.)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

(What about the pig???)
