Did you know...

that the common house fly flies at an average speed of 4.5 MPH

Take it away boys (and any girls that may be out there) just post up random facts about nothing, try not to repeat and no insults... except against Mike Jackson, every ones favorite perv (my apologies to anyone who likes him and believes in his innocence)
The Roman Empire did not create prosperity and come to be feared by having meetings and doing paperwork; they did this by killing all who opposed them.

- after the US civil war, about 40% of all US paper currency in circulation was counterfeit

- in 1685, ne france used playing cards as currency because of the shortage of coins

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 calories an hour. (Do not 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. (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?)

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??)

Did you know that if I had 5 children and those 5 had 5 and so on and so forth after 25 generations or 500 years i would have a total of 298,023,223,876,953,125 decendants. It just proves that we all may be related.

Do you think Donny Trump would put me in his will for being his 28366th cousin 683 times removed?

That rant with the commentaries is on a lot of wwebsites.

Did you know if California was its own country it would have the 5th strongest economy on Earth?

Did you know an alligator's bite pressure exceeds its jaw fracture strength, so it breaks its jaw before it reaches maximum bite power?

Did you know that most major port cities have at least 25% of their buildings over former dumps?

Did you know that there is a country of about 80 people in an apartment in Rome with its own post office, embassy, and military?

Did you know the Peregrine falcon can attain a dive speed of over 220 miles per hour(300 km/hour)?

Vatican City is a tad bit larger than that but you summed it up nicely.

Not the Vatican City. Its even smaller. I forgot the name, but it was formed by knights in the 12th century.

Here it is. It is arguable

"Some argue that The Sovereign Military Order Of Malta (SMOM) is actually the world's smallest country"

Some claim that there is a country even smaller than the world's smallest country, Vatican City. They claim that world's actual smallest country, is an organization headquartered in Rome called the Sovereign Military Order Of Malta (SMOM for short but also known as the Knights of Malta and also officially the Sovereign Military Hopsitaller Order Of St. John Of Jerusalem, Of Rhodes And Of Malta).

While the Sovereign Military Order Of Malta was once an independent country, today it is no more an independent country than any other organization

Over 3.2 trillion bugs a DAY die from smashing into windshields!!! Seriously, somebody actually studied this.

Of course, in the Northern-Hemisphere winter, that amount is less because there are not as many cars and trucks in the Southern Hemisphere. :P

A human can survive up to 150 bee stings if they are not allergic to bee stings!

Did you know, every US $1.00, $5.00, $10.00 and $20.00 bill currency has traces of EVERY known substance known to man, including Illegal, Illicit, and Toxic substances. (it's a wonder the drug addicts aren't smoking dollar bills!) :lol:

Do you realise, the average male in the USA carrys his money in his back pocket. Sometimes in the front too. (And people say that they LOVE the smell of money!!! Gross) :lol:
