It is physically impossible for pigs to look up into the sky.

On average, a human being will have sex more than 3,000 times and spend two weeks kissing in their lifetime.

I got another weird baseball fact!

Once, a guy hit a ball in deep right field. It landed on the right fielder's (Jose Canseco) head and went over the fence for a home run. Ouch, it must've hurt.

Because they look like water "tanks", soldiers call them tanks. Other names for tanks in the military are tortoise, wibble-wobble and crab.

okay...hmm....*opens Ripley's Believe it or Not book to random page*
recited directly from book:
there are some 640 skeletal muscles in the body, with more than 100 in the head, face and neck, it takes:

6 to move an eyeball
20 to purse the lips for a kiss
25 to smile
30 to twist a foot inward
35 to twist a foot outward
45 to frown [the saying is correct]
50 to take a step forward
75 to speak

White Tigers are just Albino tigers. (Yes, what a bummer and I love those things too, they look cool).:cool: They gained an extra recessive allele or something so they don't get that Golden colored fur they should normally have.:susp:

On the left is a normal Tiger and on the right is our recessive alleled friend.:happy:

There are no albino tigers, if they were albino, I doubt they'd have stripes, I've read that they're just regular bengal tigers, not a seperate subspecie.

Napoleon was terrified of cats.

A toothbrush within 6 feet of a toilet can catch airborne bacteria.

Apple seeds are poisonous.

The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows.

Cooties are real - they're a type of body lice.

Black rainbows at night? They're "moonbows" caused by moonlight and moist air.

The only letter that does not appear in the Periodic Table is "J".

Some frogs can survive being frozen.

Supposedly, by raising your legs and lying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is the fear of long words.

A blue moon is a second full moon in a month.

Each year, more than 20 million meteors enter the Earth's atmosphere.

The Rafflesia smells like rotting meat alright, and if that isn't bad enough, flies pollinate it.

The First World War was expected to last four months, but went on to 4 years.

Cannibalism is how some people survived the war.

Think your pets are useless? Goldfish, cats, dogs, pigeons and canaries had been used in World War II.
