Useless Facts (Courtesy of Danita)

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.!) (-another reason to stay away from strangers!)

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.

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??)

That made my evening! I tried reading it to my daughter, but she was A, watching the incredibly interesting geeks and beauties show and B, not ever wanting to hear her mother say the word orgasm again. What can I say, she is fourteen.

Are you going to D's Pampered Chef party? I wouldn't miss that one! LOL That's the best invitation ever!

I wonder if PC knows this is going around the internet?!! The consultants would get better showings if it was true.

Oh, yeah!

*cheesy grin*

I knew there was something I was supposed to be doing.

And oh, what - evil CP - are YOU doing here? You're supposed to be reading part one, analyzing my flow, figuring out if the rewrite sucks BGDW or not!

Some of those statements are true, and some aren't. Chimpanzees and Bonobos also have sex for pleasure. They even engage in oral sex (homosexual as well as heterosexual) for pleasure when they're bored and as a bonding ritual. The male praying mantis is very much capable of copulating with his head attached. The female eats the male post coitus because he is the nearest and most immediate available source of protein with which the female can nourish herself and her newly acquired brood. There are plenty of animals besides elephants that can't jump. Komodo dragons, for instance. I think seals might have trouble as well, unless "jumping" out of the water counts.

Sorry for the intrusion, but I just randomly happened across your blog, and being a biologist, I couldn't help but comment.
