some Weird facts...............................

  1. 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.

    Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
    (Do not 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.
    >>
    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.
    (OK, 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 a lot longer.)
    >>
    Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

    Farting an atomic bomb..........with 2 males in the house (my 4 year old son and my husband) I think we could blow up the east coast. For some reason, dinner time becomes "who can fart the loudest and longest" time. The sad thing is, my husband joins in! (Hey, I have pictures of him from when we were dating in college of him trying to light his farts on fire. If only there was a way to post them here........ :chuckle )


    Why is farting such an interesting, funny thing anyway?

    We use a lot of Febreeze in our house.....

    I used to have a dog that would fart on command. Honest. And, no, I wasn't the one that taught her to do that, either!

    Farting the equivalent of an atomic bomb........I think between my DH, two teenaged sons, and my son-in-law, we have enough "wind power" in this house to blow away the entire western half of the country PLUS British Columbia and Alaska!!

    Great collection of little-known factoids. I'm printing a couple of copies and posting them on the bulletin boards both here at home AND at work. Thanx!!

    That was hilarious needed that!

    Everytime I go home it seems like there is some sort of farting contest (I have two teenage brothers and a father that, well....it is just not explainable)

    Then there is my hubby to top it off... *sigh*

    ....and all the animals, I swear cat farts are the worst

    My Italian Greyhound farts ain't too pretty either. Especially when we are both under the covers and I get a whiff. P.U.
