Cape Town Random Fun Facts

These facts actually have nothing to do with Cape Town, lol, I found these facts on some blog listed on Afrigator, I'm still trying to find it again so I can reference it properly and include link, well till then, here are the fun facts:
  • 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.!)
  • -_1_07DD29A407DD222C0040571F802573E9-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 a hour (Don't 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. (Okay, 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??)


  1. darling - this post is just one of the many reasons why I love you - thank you for bringing a big smile (and some pig envy!) to my day. xxx

  2. If you had an orgasm that lasted that long,you'd probably die!!!! All those short-circuits and electric sparks....for a whole 30min?!?
    The upside of it though is you'd die a very happy man!!

    (Probably the ones pigs get are not as intense!!!)

  3. Hehe yeah, damn that lucky pig!
