    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.
    (Hardly seems worth it)


    2. If you fart 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)


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


    4. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
    (Still can't get over that pig thing)
    (Don't try this at home...maybe at work?)


    5. 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? Doesn't seem fair)


    6. The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
    (Hmmmmmmmmm........)


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


    8. 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??)


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


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


    I couldnt get over #3!!! 30 minute orgasms!!! wow!!!

    30 minute orgasms, but only for reproduction........yeah, all things considered, I'm happy with my blip on the radar compared to them.

    I read some where the average sperm whale dick is 9 feet long. It's the animal with the longest dick

    Humans are the only animales without a bone in their dick.... we have the largest dick compared to body size out of all species though.

    Actually, that distinction goes to the barnacle, which has a (motile!) penis several times its own body length. Creepy.

    We thought 5 was true for a long time, but there are other primates that appear to also have sex for pleasure (Bonobos for instance).

    The pig orgasm research was done as part of breeding studies. Similar to the gay ram research.

    I guess that would make sense.... perhaps the fact I read stated, "Humans have the largest dick when compared to body size out of all MAMMALS..." Rather than species in general.

    That's a possibility. I don't know as much about comparison with other mammals.

    Oh, we don't have a bone in our penis, but we do have a vestigial pubic bone where it used to be, and you can break it! Ouch.

    Just be glad you're not a banana slug. Then you'd have to fight with every other slug you mated with over who got to be the boy. The loser? Get's his dick CHEWED OFF and is a girl for the rest of her life.
