Some Useless Knowledge

I received this via email, and I can’t vouch for any of the facts.

I’ve heard a lot of them before, but I thought I would share it with everybody here just to lighten the day.

I took out the usual “forward to everyone in your mailbox and all the gods will shine on you” message from the bottom of the mail. 🙂

But hey, if you’d like to, feel free to send this on…

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.


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??)

Who doesn’t love a little useless knowledge in the morning? 😀

Enjoy your day

A List of Things to Ponder

I haven’t written in a while, but I thought I would add this list to the site because it really amused me.

Do YOU have anything you’d like to write about? With over 1200 subscribers to this site, it will get read by quite a few people.

Anyway, here goes:

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

But that didn’t stop this chap from doing it:

(email subscribers, don’t forget to visit this link to view the video online: “Australians are RACIST! Or are they?“)

Tell me if that’s not the funniest video you’ve seen in a LONG time! I think my neighbours must think I’m crazy right now, laughing by myself in an empty house. 😛
