Just to cheer you up on this dreary January morning....


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 a 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....?!")

A 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-handed.

(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??)

haha 30 minutes of nothing.....
but what if we make a human-pig?
and is that a boy pig or a girl pig?
and can they have multiple orgasms?
but dolphins are cool
wonder how much their orgasm lasts....
and if dolphins enjoy sex, do killer whales enjoy sex?
They are dolphins too you know, not whales...

"Dolphins and porpoises are examples of odontocetes, as are belugas, narwhals, killer whales, sperm whales, and beaked whales."
Hehe... well I made a little mistake, becouse of the romanian word for whale, witch is similar to baleen ( toothless whales). :oops: :oops: :oops:

Yeah! How to they find out things like that? Now back to that 30 minutes.
Is that female pig’s or is it male pig’s orgasm what will last 30 minutes?
Because if it male pig’s, I don’t think I want that poor thing to be a side
order of my toast after such a workout! :D

...and did you know that if you would like to (for whatever reason) fit the water from all the oceans, seas, lakes, rivers and so on - into a coctail straw, the straw would have to be long as f*ck

- Only 55% of Americans know that the sun is a star?
- There are more nutrients in the cornflake package itself than there are in the actual cornflakes?
- The custom of shaking hands with the strangers originated to show that both the parties were unarmed?
- Nobody knows who built the Taj Mahal?
- Smelling bananas and/or green apples can help you lose weight?
- Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying?

Eating dog food will make you bark.



Eating 10 hard boiled eggs with chili beans will make you understand why they invented the gas mask....... And Depends.
