    This thread is meant only for useful info (not spam )
    I know some fact if you know any don't hesitate to tell us or if I am mistaken correct my info.

    1)Do you know why Italian sport color is light blue instead of Red-White-Green ?

    The (light) blue is the color of Savoia(one of the oldest club in Italy). It is still used for the President's flag (blue with the coat-of-arms of the Republic in gold)

    2)Money is made from cotton and linen not paper.

    3)Marilyn Monroe had 6 toes in her foot.

    4)The electriic chair was made by a dentist

    5)ketchup was used as a cure in the 18th century

    6)Cats have 32 muscles in each ear.

    7)Elephant is the only animal that cannot jump

    8)chocolate can kill dogs

    9)the size of your eyes doesn't change like your nose or ears.

    10)the english language is spoken more in China that America.

    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 ****roach 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 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 f...?!")

    The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human
    jumping the length of a football field. (30 seconds...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 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? And what IS 'black' light?)

    An ostrich's sex organ 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?)

    The facts were sent to me in an email from a mate of mine, some of the comments were already there so I can't claim ownership of all of them. Still funny though.:D
