    1. On average, a person eats about the weight of 6 elephants in their life time.

    2. Ostriches are often not taken seriously. They can run faster than horses, and the males can roar like lions.

    3. You can't plow a cotton field with an elephant in North Carolina.

    And I did know stamps were 1/10 of a calorie!

    this isn't one of them, but I was just reading these the other day and I'm still laughing about them...

    In Redondo Beach, Calif., a police officer arrested a driver after a short chase and charged him with drunk driving. Officer Joseph Fonteno's suspicions were aroused when he saw the white Mazda MX-7 rolling down Pacific Coast Highway with half of a traffic-light pole, including the lights, lying across its hood. The driver had hit the pole on a median strip and simply kept driving. According to Fonteno, when the driver was asked about the pole, he said, "It came with the car when I bought it."

    The record for the world’s worst drivers is a toss-up between two candidates: First, a 75-year-old man who received 10 traffic tickets, drove on the wrong side of the road four times, committed four hit-and-run offenses, an caused six accidents, all within 20 minutes on October 15, 1966. Second, a 62-year-old woman who failed her driving test 40 times before passing it in August, 1970 (by that time, she had spent over $700 in lessons, and could no longer afford to buy a car).

    4. At last count there were about 226,000 trees in New York's Central Park.

    5. According to the Wall Street Journal, the cockfighting market is huge: The Philippines has five million roosters used for exactly that.

    This one is for all those who find squirrels evil, just so we know how long they'll live:

    6. The lifespan of a squirrel is about nine years.

    did you know that in the novel gone with the wind, melanie was apparently pregnant for 21 months (based on the battles mentioned)? when it was pointed out to the author margaret mitchell, she reportedly replied that a southerner's pace is slower than that of a yankee. :LOL:

    Jellyfish like salt water. A rainy season often reduces the jellyfish population by putting more fresh water into normally salty waters where they live.

    The odds of seeing three albino deer at once are one in seventy-nine billion, yet one man in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, took a picture of three albino deer in the woods.

    A group of twelve or more cows is called a flink.

    LMAO!!! Oh my god that's hilarious!! :woot: :LOL:


    Catnip, or Nepeta cataria, is an herb with nepetalactone in it. Many think that when cats inhale nepetalactone, it affects hormones that arouse sexual feelings, or at least alter their brain functioning to make them feel "high." Catnip was originally made, using nepetalactone as a natural bug repellant, but roaming cats would rip up the plants before they could be put to their intended task.

    hahaha... we're sad people. :D just kidding. ;) anyway, here's another one! sorry if you've heard this one before too. :D [oh yeah, got it from another email]

    Did you know...

    While both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the Summer each year, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of Winter, usually late November to mid-December.

    Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give birth in the Spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen had to be a female! We should have known! Only women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit around the world in one night and not get lost.

    Now that makes complete sense. :D

    Money man Cornelius Vanderbilt was an insomniac and a believer in the occult. He was not able to fall asleep unless each leg of his bed was planted in a dished filled with salt. He felt this kept out the evil spirits. It also kept out the snails, ants, and anyone with high blood pressure.
