Happy as a pig …


Happy as a pig …

I read this one someone’s Facebook status today (did you know you could still do that?) and it made me giggle, so I decided to share it with you. Nineteen facts you may, or may not, have known, but are QI …

  • 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. (O.M.G.!!!)
  • 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. (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 can’t believe that pig …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 how much the government 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? Do the dolphins know about the pig?)

So, now you know …
