  • 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!) [I wonder if they are including the sound energy in that calculation. Seems like you'd have enough energy for an atomic bomb, and to warm a cup of coffee; and after finishing a 7 year fart and popping a nuke out of your butt, I think you'd deserve a hot cup of coffee]
  • 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. [Humans last less that one or two days] (Creepy.) (I'm still not over the pig.)
  • Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Do not 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 human male just acts like his head is no longer attached, when the prospect of mating presents itself]
  • 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. (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. (OK, so that would be a good thing....) [On the other hand, Elephants have a 5' long prehensiled penis.]
  • [Giraffe's not only can jump, but that's the only way the male can reach the female for mating; he completes the entire act while in the air. (talk about a quickie).]
  • 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??)
  • On the other hand Bonobo females, a type of chimp, rub their genitals together as a form of greeting; I wouldn't mind if human females picked up that habit
