The seahorse is the only known creature in which the male becomes pregnant.

The female deposits her eggs in the male's brood pouch, where the eggs are fertilized. The pouch acts like a womb, complete with placental fluid that cushions the eggs, provides oxygen and nutrients to the embryos, and removes waste. After two to four weeks, the male goes into labor, usually at night. The young are miniature adult seahorses, independent from birth. Most species of seahorses are monogymous.

Interesting....


Cats have 30 muscles in each ear (that's why they are able to turn them 180 degrees)

TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard

It's physically impossible for you to lick your elbow.

Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.

I posted this in the PL and found it hilarious!

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 calorie s 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??)



(and God love that pig!)

Not sure if these have been mentioned or not, but I just received an email and thought I would share them


During an hour's swimming at a municipal pool you will ingest 1/12 liter of urine.

In an average day your hands will have come into indirect contact with 15 penises (touching door handles, etc.)

An average person's yearly fast food intake will contain 12 pubic hairs.

In a year you will have swallowed 14 insects - while you slept!

Annually you will shake hands with 11 women who have recently masturbated and failed to wash their hands.

Annually you will shake hands with 6 men who have recently masturbated and failed to wash their hands.

In a lifetime 22 workmen will have examined the contents of your dirty linen basket.

At an average wedding reception you have a 1/100 chance of getting a cold sore from one of the guests.

Daily you will breath in 1 liter of other peoples' anal gases.


HAVE A GREAT DAY... and wash your darn hands!

Here are three sumwhat interesting trival facts.

Elephants are the only animals that have 4 knees, they can bend both their front and back legs.

The only man made structure that can be seen from outer space is the Great Wall of China.

And Vlad the Impaler ( Count Dracula) had a younger brother named Radu.
So giraffes and camels and hippos etc have two knees??? how sad



Wow this thread has really taken off, i didn't expect it to

Sound at the right vibration can bore holes through a solid object.

Moscow weathermen can be fined for inaccurate weather forecasting!

Human birth control pills work on gorillas.

Oak trees do not have acorns until they are fifty years old or older.

By raising your legs slowly and laying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand.

Children laugh about 400 times a day, while adults laugh on average only 15 times a day.

Brad Pitt has been smoking since the sixth grade!

If the population of China walked past you in single file, the line would never end because of the rate of reproduction.

No president of the United States was an only child.

When he was only 13, Johnny Depp lost his virginity to a girl slightly older than him.

Gloucestershire airport in England used to blast Tina Turner songs on the runways to scare birds away.

To find out if a watermelon is ripe, knock it, and if it sounds hollow then it is ripe.


Only female bees work.

No one knows where Mozart is buried.

I have a good friend who is colorblind, and when he was tested they discovered he could see into the ultraviolet! How I wish I could look through his eyeballs for five minutes!

Meaghan, I'm not even going to follow your link, because I'm just sure God is responsible for more deaths in the Bible than anyone else -- right? A bit testy for a deity, hm?

That thing about oak trees... I don't see how that can be true, unless it's really only referring to some particular sub-species. I find little acorns all over the ground from very young Texas live oaks every year.

Ah, IKEA! I just got my 2008 catalog in the mail today, and we're lucky enough to have a store not five miles away. IKEA is all about common sense, economical solutions, and innovative thinking. They're geniuses!

And SW, that's something I've wondered about just recently -- whether some of us see and hear in slightly different ranges than others. That's just fascinating about your friend! Maybe you should encourage him to take up painting, so he can let us see how things look to him... but then I guess there are no paints in some of the colors he sees, are there? Wow!

By the way: I love Monk, but he doesn't go far enough for me on the handwashing, no handshake, for-pete's-sake-don't-touch-that thing. My role model is Howard Hughes!

Yes, but to this I quote Bill Cosby: "I brought you into this world, I'll take you out!"
