    Another very important known fact is that spider's have their penises located on their legs. So if you see a spider walking funny it might mean he is very excited.

    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 passed gas 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!)

    A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
    (I want to be a pig.)

    A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (Creepy, But I'm still not over the pig.)

    The male preying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

    The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
    (30 minutes...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...quality over quantity.)

    Butterflies taste with their feet.

    A cat's urine glows under a black light.

    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!)

    Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
    (What about that pig??!!!)
