Another interesting fact, if you put all the coffins of all the children under 5 years old in the world who died of malnutrition last year in a straight line, it would stretch from New York City to Paris, via London.

The NYC - London stretch would be made of children who lived in lesser developed countries; the London-Paris trench, of children who lived in so-called developed countries.

Isn't that interesting?


Interesting yes, but definitely not sexually exciting.

Not sexually exciting, unless you're a real pervert.

Did you notice it also means that you can't fill all the streets of NYC with a line coffins of infants who died of malnutrition last year? Perhaps only the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn.

Well isn't that er, um, uh,...a cheery thought. Are you sure you wouldn't rather substitute Staten Island for Brooklyn?

Yeah, sure. Staten Island already has the city dump.

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!)

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. (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 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....)

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??)

So, who figured that out about the pig?

Is that the male, female or both.

What, do they lie there spazing for half and hour?

I'm into investigative mode on this...

will report back with details.

knowing our damn luck, it's probably the males... And what do they do for 1/2 an hour? Probably the gal is sitting quietly somewhere and he's snoring his head off...

Actually the Fresh Kills landfill has been officially closed (although it was reopened for the parts sorting after September 11,2001) and plans are to make it into a park.

Just think of it now...your children, nieces and nephews and others playing on top of a mound of history...just don't let the children dig too deep while pretending to be archeologists.

Oh no, as the male goes on for a 1/2 hour, the female is making sandwiches and putting the beer to chill in the freezer for him for after.

If it turns out to be the female pig, I'm rather taken by the idea of some kind of research being done to cross a pig with a praying mantis......
Twisted Evil

(Bonobos do it for fun also! - and using various positions, including the missionary position. We just have to save those babies!)
