Interesting, Yet Useless Facts...

I know, I know...I'm full of great post ideas!

Actually, due to the giant brain fart I've had since yesterday I'm officially out of good post ideas so I'm using this as a 'filler'. That's allowed right? Either way, some of the stuff I'm about to list are pretty interesting...I wouldn't recommend you use them as a conversation starter at a tea party but it's pretty awesome if you're into lame facts (I am!).
  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.

  2. If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

  3. A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes. - (They like to live in their own feces...god had to make it up to them somehow...)

  4. Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. - (Dolphins truly are smart.)

  5. The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

  6. Polar bears are left handed.

  7. A cockroach will live nine days without it's head, before it starves to death. - (Just reading this grosses me out, Big Time.)

  8. 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. - (Poor guy...which head will he choose?Ok...totally uncalled for yet funny, you know it!)

  9. An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain.

  10. Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least 6 feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush. - (Eww...poopy toothbrush.)

  11. The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as substitute for blood plasma.

  12. Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning. - (Now this is INTERESTING)

  13. Thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already married. - (Shame on them)

  14. The electric chair was invented by a dentist. - (Figures)

  15. The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building. - (lets hope this library is the only thing these engineers designed)
(fact source)

I seriously cant get over how many of these useless facts are out there. I've listed 15 but I just found a website that lists over 300...that's insane. Maybe I'll do one of these 'filler' posts every month...you know you want some more of this fun-tastic nonsense ;)


  1. I'll have to remember # 1 & 2 the next time the hubs and I are fighting since farting has a more powerful effect than yelling :)

  2. I love useless facts! Keep 'em coming!

  3. The cockroach one is seriously going to haunt me for a couple of days if not years. And I may have to try an apple with breakfast tomorrow morning!

  4. stopping by from SITS - what a great way to post when uninspired :)

  5. Useless..but funny!
    Stopping in from SITS.

  6. I think I just threw up in my mouth about the cockroach...ew!

  7. I LOVE useless facts, I actually find them VERY useful!

    P.S. No one ever has the money for kids ever--no one is ever prepared, but it works out perfectly!!!

  8. Kinda like these useless facts! Now I'm gonna go eat an apple to wake up!


I love comments!
