    you know, i have just spent 5 months in france and didn't know that!

    i know that they call us "roast beefs", because we apparently go red as beetroots (or non-cooked beef) when the first rays of the sun hit us.

    I came out with a really useless fact today. So useless that the whole room i was talking to went silent and looked at me strangely. SO useless in fact, that I can't remember it now!

    Concorde travelling at its cruising speed of mach 2 would take 293 years to reach the sun. (A very useless fact which has no purpose anywhere)

    Heres a life-altering fact:

    If you put a rat in cola, it will dissolve :naughty:


    Only life altering if you drink the cola afterwards though i think.

    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 were flatulent consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is
    produced to create the enrgy for an atomic bomb.
    (Now that's more like it!)

    The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out the body to
    squirt blood 30 feet.
    (OMG!)

    A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes
    (In my next life I want to be a pig!).

    A cockroach will live 9 days without it's 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
    (Do not try this at home....maybe at work?)

    The male praying mantis cannot copulate while head his attached to its
    body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off
    (Darling, 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 27000 taste buds
    (What could be THAT tasty at the bottom of a pond?)

    Some lions mate over 50 times a day
    (Rather be a pig....quality over quantity)

    Butterflies taste with their feet
    (Something I always wanted to know)

    The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue
    (Hmmmmmmm?)

    Right-handed people live, on average, 9 years longer than left-handed
    people
    (If you are ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

    Elephants are the only animal that cannot jump
    (seems a like a good thing, that....)

    A cat's urine glows under a black light
    (You mean someone got paid to figure that out?)

    An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain
    (I know some people like that)

    Starfish have no brains
    (I know some people like that too)

    Polar Bears are lefthanded
    (If they switch, they'll live longer)

    Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure
    (What about that pig?)

    According to one study, plant and animal species are becoming extinct at the rate of 17 per hour.
    The sun burns 9 million tons of gas a second. At this rate, it has been estimated it will burn out in another 10 billion years.
    There are 2,202 pipes in the organ at the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace.
    The first plastic ever invented was celluloid. It came about as an alternative for billiard balls made from ivory.
