In case you didn't know!

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 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!)

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

4. A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (In the next life, who wants to be a pig?)

5. A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy, but still thinking about the pig.)

6. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Do not try this at home.)

7. 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....?!")

8. The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. (Who cares? Back to 30 minutes . . . lucky pig.)

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

10. Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (You still might want to be a pig in your next life. That sounds too much like work.)

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

12. The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmmmmm . . .)

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

14. Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (Okay, so that would be a good thing.)

15. A cat's urine glows under a black light. (So those TV ads for Urine Gone are not a fake.)

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

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

18. Polar bears are left-handed. (If they'd switch, they'll catch more fish over a lifetime, eh?)

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