Default Facts and Comments

A cockroach will live nine days without its head, before it starves to death.
(Creepy.)

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 fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that'* more like it)

A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out.
(I wouldn't either if I had teeth like that)

It'* impossible to lick your elbow.
(ummmm.....ok)

A duck'* quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.
(who researches these things)

Nearly everyone who reads this will try and lick their elbow.
(I believe that one....I know I tried)

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
(Like THAT makes sense.)

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman'* genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.
(Do they look different reversed?)

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse.This also applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.
(A brick??)

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
(Much worse than "going blind!")

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time. Reason under Guam law?? It is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.
(Let'* just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband'* lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.
(Ah! Justice!)

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores.
(But of course! Where else would you expect to see a topless saleswoman??) In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)

A pig'* orgasm lasts for 30 minutes.
(How'd they figure this out, and why?)
(In my next life I want to be a pig)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
(Don't try this at home...maybe at work?)
(Are you still thinking about the pig thing? Cuz I am)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)
(And pigs get 30-minute orgasms? That hardly seems fair)

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

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight, and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.
(From drinking little bottles of...?)
(Did taxpayers pay for this research??)

Polar bears are left-handed.
(Who knew? Who cares? How'd they find out? Did they ask them?)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What can be so tasty on the bottom of the pond?)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It'* like a human jumping the length of a football field.
(30 minutes...can you imagine??)
(And why pigs?)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male'* head off.
(Honey, I'm home. What the....)
(Bet he wishes he was born a pig)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(In my next life I still want to be a pig...quality over quantity.)

Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Oh, geez. That'* almost as bad as catfish)

An ostrich'* eye is bigger than its brain.
(I know some people like that.)

Starfish don't have brains.
(I know some people like that too.)

After reading all these, all I can say is...lucky, lucky pigs!

Your comments were better than half the facts. I've heard about half of those....some are old. I've been to Guam, and the virgin thing was true at one point, but ALAS, it is no longer.

Bummer. Back to wishing I was a pig, I guess.
