Crazy Facts

Shamelessly stolen from my very good pal - Thanks Mickie!

* If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.)

* If you farted consistently 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. (O.M.G.!)

* A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

* A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.
(Creepy.)(I'm still not over the pig.)

* Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Don't try this at home, maybe at work)

* The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is 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 their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.)

* The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmmmmm......)

* Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
(If you're 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-pawed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)

* Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about that pig??)

i'm thinking the pig was too busy having a 30 minute orgasm to participate in the poll to determine whether or not he had sex for pleasure or procreation. hence, the skewed results of the research.

I would be most interested in hearing who they pay to do the sort of research needed to come up with these sorts of facts and how much they get paid!

Apparently there is an actual job sexually stimulating pigs to aid in artificial insemination success -
