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.

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour

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.

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.

  1. A couple of incorrect items on the list.
    – ALL urine glows under a blacklight. Try it out in a restaurant bathroom some time.

    – Lots of species have sex for pleasure. Non-reproductive mating behavior in the past has been explained away as dominance or socialization, etc., because lots of people have problems with the idea that sex is pleasurable in and of itself, and need not always serve a purpose.
