Bet Ya Didn't Know This!!!!

since I was still feeling a little on the icky side ...this is what I have to say today...tomorrow...there is a very important post coming your way...but for today...just some fun and Crazy Facts:

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.) -I know someone who has heated a pot!

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!) - JUSTINE!!!! DID YOU HEAR THAT???

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet. -okay...that's just gross

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy.) (I'm still not over the pig.) --I saw my first one in florida...I tried to kill it...and it lost a "husband" caught it and threw it over the railing of the hotel balcony....and my son was yelling "here little left your leg behind!" then he had to shower! ick!

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour --if you are desperate for calorie burning...this ones for you! I wonder how many calories you use if you bang someone else's head...(hey...just thinking out loud...)

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. --now she is one smart woman....the men don't use their heads anyways....ever! (yea, I'm a little bitter...)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field. --good to know?

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. -why is this important?

Some lions mate over 50 times a day. -busy Lions eh? no wonder every time you see them on T.V. they are yawning!

Butterflies taste with their feet.

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?) ---Ha Ha....I will live longer than HIM!!!! lol

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. -why is this important?

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. ( why do we know this?)

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Hi Tootsie, Pretty cute post! I know who paid for the cat urine test...we did, through our tax $$$ I'm sure! LOL! My son is a walking atomic bomb! LOL!

Hope you are feeling better, soon! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Dawn Marie said...

very interesting and some very gross!

My favorite would be the fart one--I've always liked farts.

Jessica said...

You are too much Tootsie~ :)

I love ya!!

ksarra said...

Strange and amazing trivia Toots! Hope you're feeling better today!

onlymehere said...

Thanks for the smile! I love random facts like this. My one question though, how do they know the dolphins enjoy it? Do they light up a little waterproof cigarette after?! LOL!

Four Paws and Co said...

Great post & while you're still feeling ICKY! Hope you're feeling better soon! ♥ Diane

Tamara Jansen said...

Ha, ha, ha, ho, ho, ho, he, he, he......You should be my Trivial Pursuit partner next time we play! Too funny :)

Tamara Jansen said...

Seed catalogues? You wanna know if I have SEED catalogues?! You CAN'T HANDLE the amount of seed catalogues I have!!!!

Bacopa we buy as a vegetative cutting since it does MUCH better from cutting. Some bacopa has a very expensive royalty attached to it (like Wave petunias) so that adds some cost. Also, if bacopa doesn't yield much seed, they become more expensive :(

Anyway, I think I shall have to blog about my seed catalogues. I used to have a hard time parting with them but I have learned to throw them out finally. Otherwise I would need a storage facility just for all the catalogues :)

Chrissy...The Apothecary Shop said...

O.K after reading that all my posts seem dull!!! Poor least they can get by on their looks! I came to tell you.........but now I am afraid....................I got another crown...bye!!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

What interesting facts. It was good to have you come by..hope you're having a super day..
hugs ~lynne~

Justine said...

I've gotta say, this was some interesting shit! The only one of them that I knew was that the tongue is the strongest muscle.

How do they know that dolphins boink for pleasure???

Justine :o )
And ROFL to what Gloria said!

SG said...

Hiya Toots! OMG! Your comments cracked me up!

I hope you are doing well. I've missed visiting you... but my finger wasn't cooperating. It's doing much better now.

I look forward to your very important post tomorrow!

Tamara Jansen said...

Oh man Tootsie, I have to buy seeds in packs of 5,000. Can you use 5,000 pansy seeds in one season? That'll be in one color only. Ya gotta buy 5,000 per color. We buy millions of seeds a year but all of them come in bulk. Definately not your gardener variety pack of seeds.

One year I bought a vial of poppy seeds that cost $1,000 and it was no bigger than a lipstick case!

And of course, I tend to buy generic type seeds because we sell to big box stores that don't deal in the really cool specialty varieties.


Hi Tootsie,
THANK YOU for changing the colors of your post so I can read it:) ]Happy Dance...
Very interesting facts:)
Sorry to read about the mean blogger...what's up with mean people, don't they know they should just keep their comments to themselves??
Anyway, Thanks again
Christmas JOY to You.

Bargain Decorating with Laurie said...

Fun post. Learned a lot. Don't know when I might use this info, but you never know when it might come in handy. Hope you are feeling better. laurie

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

You are too funny Tootsie ! Very interesting LOL .

momstheword said...

These are so funny!! Kind of makes you wonder why anybody wanted to know these things (like the cat urine). The cockroach thing is creepy, but hey, at least I got my education for the day! Who knew?!

BTW, about my puppy: I'm still waiting for my "little girl" to grow up, hehehe!

imjacobsmom said...

Oh Tootsie, I hope you are feeling better. It's creepy about the cockroaches -ewww! I think my ex-husband could have heated a few cups of coffee, if not the pot - I may need to bang my head against the wall a few times I just ate the leftover pieces of pizza instead of sticking them in the fridge. ~ Robyn

Mama said...

Nope. Didn't know any of that stuff. Am I smart now? lol

Have a great weekend.

Barbara Jean said...

Those 'facts'; are too funny.
Who is paying these people to figure all this out??

Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

hugs, BJ

Jill said...

These are fun facts! Kinda like some of those useless facts I keep stored in my brain. Justine always gets a kick out of it when I spit a dumb fact out. I pay attention to those little things on animal planet that everyone else disregards!

Lady Katherine said...

How fun, I think! lol! Feel better soon.
