    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 a hour
    (Don't 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.
    (Okay, 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??)

    Two points at least that I contend:

    The males of praying mantids CAN definitely copulate with their head on LOL. Female mantids MAY eat the males for sustenance (especially captive ones which aren't fed properly), same as with other male-eating species (notably spiders), but not always. In fact it is rarer for a female to eat the male than these kind of myths suggest. In other animal species where this is more common (spiders), males have evolved the bang and run tactics (some spiders even offer pre-wrapped meals to females in an effort not to get eaten after mating).

    Starfishes may have no concentrated 'brain' area but they have radial nerves. Which means they still have neural functions. Sponges, however, are the only multicellular animals that do not have any sort of nervous system nor sensory apparatus. Of course there are also the slime molds and whatnot which are also multicellular, but they aren't considered animals by most.

    Only random fact I can ever remember:

    Barbie's (yes, the doll) full name is Barbara Malificent Roberts.

    Oh great, so now spiders are doing the same thing as humans - fuck and run!!! She's probably thinking, "Oh wow, dinner and sex...what a gentleman." Then he hits the road because it's all too much for him. There's no accountability, I tell ya! If the lower animal kingdom is learning these selfish tactics, we're going to have a major dead-beat dad issue amongst them.

    BTW...very funny, Caslon!

    Hmm... I don't really recall witnessing the "30 minutes" thing, but the Duroc boar I had back in high school was one of the most contented, mellow animals I ever dealt with.

    I had to look that up because I thought Malificent (or rather Maleficent) was the evil witch in the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty...a name that conjures up magnificence with malice.

    Barbie's middle name is the much more innocent Millicent.

    Heh, it may not be obvious, but I have three years of BS Biology behind me (before I shifted to a computer course), plus a lifelong fascination with nature and life sciences (though I like the animal side rather than the plant side or the human side).

    Mantids, in particular, along with beetles, water scorpions, and butterflies were frequent targets of my bughunting days. Mantids especially because they are quite beautiful over here. Some so cleverly disguised you wouldn't even notice it on a plant inches from you. I had one perfectly posed and dried large female mantis once (the common green one, it got eaten by rodents, bleh! along with my insect collection).

    Echinoderms on the other hand are less appealing to me (though Crinoids do evoke another fascination - that with fossils), but they were part of our early lessons. icon_razz.gif

    30 minutes! It's hard enough to concentrate on anything else as it is. I'd be so useless as a pig. They'd be talking 'sausage patties' after I reached full size. The only job I could hold would be 'pork star'... I mean porn star. The funny thing about pork porn, you watch for an hour and only see 2 money shots. (ba dum bump)
