Know any? For example - A male lion mates over 50 times a day, In your lifetime you will eat 10 spiders, Once or twice in your life a roach will crawl into your ear. Does anyone have any others to add? Please do.

Well... Q: do you know why your name is Mudd if you do something wrong? A: A doctor by the name Dr. Mudd saved Abrahm Lincolns assasin, the public thought that the assasin should die and the doctor saved him. Q: where did the saying "get on the ball" come from? A: when flying an airplane your leveling controller has a ball that goes to the side that is higher. You step on the rudder pedal that is higher thus- "getting on the ball"

This type of knowledge is refered to as "useless knowledge" because it is not normally brought up in a study. Not that it is actually useless, it is just what it is called. Thanks for responding.

I found a few: 27% of female lottery winners hid their winning ticket in their bras. 3% of pet owners give Valentine's gifts to their pets 31% of employees skip lunch entirely. 45% of Americans don't know that the sun is a star.

That is interesting, but I don't think I'd give my animals a valentine's day card, the worst they'd do is chew it up. Wasted money. Thanks for responding.

A camel can lose up to 30% of its body weight in perspiration and continue to cross the desert. A human would die of heat shock after sweating away only 12% of body weight. The number of centenarians (100 years and older) has more than doubled since 1980 to about 50,000. Four in five were women. (And I really didn't need to know about the 10 spiders!) Good discussion here.

Thanks for the response. I didn't want to know about the spiders when I first heard either, but it's just something you can't forget once you learn it.

More people die from getting hit on the head by a coconut then eaten by sharks.
