    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 passed gas 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!)
    A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy)
    Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Do not try this at home...maybe at work or school)
    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 catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)
    Butterflies taste with their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.)
    Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do. (If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)
    Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (OK, 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? Whoever it was, I bet they were working for the government)
    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, will they live a lot longer?)

    If you have any other thoughts, just add them.

    That cat urine thing...I think it was researched by renters, homebuyers, and landlords trying to detect previous activities of ill-behaved cats.
