* 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 thats 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 pigs orgasm lasts 30 minutes
(in my next life i want to be a pig!)

(creepy) ( I'm still not over the pig!)

* Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories and hour
( dont 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 males head off.
(honey, I'm home...What the...?!?)

*The flea can jump 350 times its body length. Its like a human jumping the length of a football field
(30 mintutes..lucky pig...can you imagine??? )

* The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(what could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

( I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity! )

* Butterflies taste with their feet.
(somthing i always wanted to know :huh: )

*The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
( hmmmm.......)

* Right handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
(If your ambidextrous, do you split the difference??)

* Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
(O.K, 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
( iknow 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.
