did you know...
The number of times a cricket chirps in fifteen seconds plus thirty two is the exact temperature of where the cricket is standing. If crickets stand. Where the cricket is residing...:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
There is no muscle in your fingers… just ligaments and fat.
Batwoman is a lesbian. DC comics made her gay to make their comics more diverse, says Dan Didio, whom evidently works for DC comics and whose last name looks like Dildo.
The bee population in the ..:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />US has decreased by 15%. Einstein predicted that four years after the bees died out everything on Earth would be shriveled up and dead, which would obviously include us. That would make sense because bees pollinate the plants and once the plants die out all the carbon dioxide we exhale will pile up and there will be no oxygen and we'll all die. If the bees died in 2008, which is in four days, we'll be extinct by the Mayan Millennium.
A hundred people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year,
Holding in a sneeze is bad for your eardrums. For some people, looking at a light will make them sneeze. When they have to, I mean.
In ten minutes a hurricane releases more energy then all the world's nuclear weapons combined.
The profession with the highest suicide rate is the dentist. The city with the highest suicide rate is Seattle. Seattle has three dental schools.
The Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on Their Destruction, or Ottawa Convention, took place in 1997. The objective of the convention was to get as many countries as possible to sign the Mine Ban Treaty. Land mines are left in the field for long after wars end, except they are not actually left in the field per se, they are left at random in places that may or may not be inhabited by people that most likely cannot see underground and avoid them. In December 1997, 122 countries ratified the treaty, and in 1999 it became binding by international law, quicker then any like treaty in history. The treaty is still open to ratification by any countries that did not sign before 1999. Currently 40 countries have not signed the treaty, including the US, China, Russia and India. The US, China and India have the three highest populations in the world. Russia has the eighth highest population in the world. The countries that have not signed refuse to because land mines cost about $5 a piece to manufacture and $450 to remove twenty square feet of them, and because they are not personally effected by them.
Scientists can create any substance by blending the elements the substance consists of. This was discovered in 1828 by a chemist named Freidrich Woehler, who left inorganic materials together in his laboratory and accidentally synthesized urea, which is basically piss. Freidrich Woehler recognized the urea and therefore proved that living things can be reproduced by nonliving substances. Almost like spontaneous generation, only real, and kind of terrifying. It's also kind of weird that he recognized piss.
Echolalia is the repeating of speech made by another person. Echopraxia is the repeating of the movements or expressions of another person. Palilalia is the repeating of thing you have personally said. They all accompany Tourettes, Autism, developmental disorders and catatonic schizophrenia.
The human head is changing with evolution… The jaw and cheekbones are shrinking, cranium is expanding, and we are becoming smaller. As the jaw grows smaller, the teeth are pushed back, which is why so many people need to have their wisdom teeth removed.
324,000 babies are born everyday. During the same day, 10,000 people will die from malnutrition, and 124,000 will die for other reasons. That means there is a net gain of 191,000 people everyday. Some effects of overpopulation are an inadequate water supply, mass species extinction due to necessary utilization of uninhabited space (eight million hectacres are lost to deforestation each year; 698 species have been forced into extinction in human history, but somehow as high 140,000 animal species are expected to be extinct by next year), lower life expectancy and higher infant mortality rate in mostly 3rd world countries due to poverty and famine, and pollution which will eventually lead to such intense soil contamination that agriculture will be impossible.
There have been about three flu pandemics in every century for the past three centuries, the worst of which was the Spanish Flu in 1918. The Spanish flu caused massive hemorrhages and edema (swollen lungs filled with body's fluids), and killed an estimated 50-100 million people, which is more then the Bubonic plague. People infected would turn black in the extremities and the face because of hypoxia due to the edema. Avian influenza is responsible for the Spanish Flu… and bird flu. People that have developed immunities to current strains of the flu are completely susceptible to new strains. Millions of birds carry Avian flu right now, and as of today, December 27th 2007, there are 343 cases of bird flu and 212 deaths from it. Bird flu will become a pandemic; efforts being made by the government (yes, the government is actually doing something) will only delay it by a few years.
Adolph Hitler injected meth daily for a few years before his suicide (on April 30th, 1945, exactly 46 years before I was born), was in the latent stage of syphilis that he contracted from a prostitute in this late teens, in which the disease begins to eat away at your brain and you become psychotic, and had Parkinson's, which causes dementia.
The hole in the Titanic was the size of a refrigerator. Inside the bottom of the Titanic were huge compartments that were almost separated by walls that did not reach the ceiling. When a hole was ripped in one of the compartments, it filled with water until the water spilled into the next compartment. And then the next, until half the ship was filled, broke off and sunk.
Anne Frank's journal was recovered and edited by her father, Otto Frank, who later published it. The unedited version has long descriptions of Anne Frank's pussy, which is kind of weird.
All organisms are made up of cells, and all cells carry hereditary material passed onto the offspring of the cell in sexual reproduction and division of the cell in asexual reproduction. The hereditary material is DNA, which is a double helix consisting of a sugar component, a phosphate group, and four bases: adenine, thymine, cytosine and guanine. Those four bases form absolutely all life on Earth. DNA is contained in the chromosomes, of which we take from each of our parents. Until we figure out what the chromosomes mean (aka the Human Genome Project), we really have no idea what's going on in the biosphere… the core of biology itself is purely speculation.
There is a medication for recovering alcoholics called Antabuse that essentially makes you allergic to alcohol, but is obviously fallible because it is at the dispense of the alcoholic.
In the original Brother's Grimm Little Mermaid story, the mermaid princess, who had an obsessive infatuation with Prince Human, sought out a sorceress type to grow legs so that she could stalk him. "Ursula", which is from the Disney version, told the mermaid princess that she could have legs for three days, but then she had to come back to the sea, and if she didn't come back to the sea, she would be in agony for the rest of her life as a human and not a mermaid. She met the prince, fell in love with him, and decided to stay on land despite the promised agony. Unfortunately, the agony was too much for her so she drowned herself and turned into sea foam. No, she did not live happily ever after, much less have a cheerful aquatic entourage serenading her with encouraging and catchy songs. Fish can't fucking sing.
When you get laser eye surgery, there is a subtle change of pressure in your eyeball. If you reach a high enough altitude after undergoing laser eye surgery, your eyeballs will implode. That's why pilots are required to have 20/20 vision, among other reasons.
Amputee fetishism is going to be added to the DSM. Acrotomophilia is getting off on the amputation of another's limbs; Apotemnophilia is getting off on the amputation of your own limbs. There is a little community of amputee fetishists, in which they have abbreviations for the types of amputation they get off on: AK=Above Knee BK= Below Knee AE=Above Elbow BE=Below Elbow. L or R can be added to specify the right or left limb. A Disarticulation amputation is amputation at the joint. WD= Wrist Disarticulation ED=Elbow Disarticulation KD= Knee Disarticulation SD= Shoulder Disarticulation HD= Hip Disarticulation. Adding a D before an abbreviation stands for double… DSD+DHD is the abbreviation for amputation of all the limbs (Black Knight, Monty Python, anyone…). There aren't many people that get off on the amputation of fingers and toes, and only a slightly larger group get off on gouging out eyes. LI= Left Eye RI= Right Eye.
The Cougar, Puma, Mountain Lion and Panther are the same animal, genus Puma Concodor, called different names according to the geographical region they live in.
Amp reduces sperm count.
Webster's Dictionary recently published an updated dictionary with the word "McJob", to which the definition was "A low paying job that requires little skill and provides little opportunity for advancement". McDonalds has not sued but is very offended. They also have a program for the training of mentally and physically handicapped to work at McDonalds called McJobs, which makes it even more offensive.
Some guy in Florida did an experiment attempting to prove that plants are capable of experiencing pain/emotion. He did a couple of things to provoke the plant, like playing loud music to the plant. Eventually he attached electrodes to the plant, and it finally got pissed.
Romeo and Juliet were originally thirteen.
