Random Facts, I Bet You Didn’t Know…

Random facts? Totally love them! They help me kill at Trivial Pursuit.

I can’t take credit for any of these ones, though, just picked them up from a collection of places to share with everyone. And that I overlooked jotting down the source info for. Sorry! If you know where any of these came from, let me know and I’ll be happy to quote the sources.

19 random facts, I bet you didn’t know

  1. If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee
  2. If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb
  3. The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out of the body to squirt blood 30 feet
  4. A pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes  (Lucky bastards…)
  5. A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death  (Creepy..)
  6. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour  (If this is true, I should weigh about 5 pounds)
  7. The male preying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male’s head off  (I was going to make a comment about my last significant other, but that’s too easy)
  8. The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It’s like a human jumping the length of a football field
  9. The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds
  10. Some lions mate over 50 times a day  (More lucky bastards…)
  11. Butterflies taste with their feet
  12. The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue  (No comment…)
  13. Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people
  14. Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump
  15. A cat’s urine glows under a black light  (I want to know who had so much spare time that they thought to check this…)
  16. An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain
  17. Starfish have no brains
  18. Polar bears are left-handed  (So… they’ll live 9 years less than right-handed bears of other species?)
  19. Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure  (Not with each other, right???)
