Did you know...

  • Beetles taste like apples, wasps like pine nuts, and worms  like fried bacon (note it down in case world hunger comes knocking - P.S. I sincerely pity the people used to research this)
  • In 1386, a pig in France was executed by public hanging for the murder of a child (no comment)
  • Human thigh bones are stronger than concrete
  • Adolf Hitler was a vegetarian, and had only ONE testicle (that explains why he was so pissed off at the world)
  • Honey is the only food that does not spoil. Honey found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs has been tasted by archaeologists and found edible (why would you do that?)
  • The average lead pencil will draw a line 35 miles long or write approximately 50,000 English words (I'm curious how much someone is paid to analyze this? I would feel like an idiot dragging a line with a pencil for 35 miles)
  • Dolphins sleep with one eye open! (with sharks as neighbors I'd do the same)
  • The longest recorded flight  of a chicken is 13 seconds (Fly, birdie, fly!)

  • A giraffe can clean its ears with its 21-inch tongue (I don't know about that but they sure can pick their nose with it)

  • An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain (that explains why they shove their  heads in the sand in case of danger)
  • You can't kill yourself by holding your breath (No joking?)
