Did you know a blue whale produces 400 gallons of sperm when it ejaculates but only 10% ever makes it inside its partner...so 360 gallons is spilled into the ocean.

Yep, that's why the ocean is so salty.

You should see aerial photos of salmon spawning. The water looks like milk.

I still don't see how the earth's rotation can cause the ball to go farther unless it went several thousand miles per hour faster. That also means that every time you jump, you will fly west a bit.

Here, let me test.

Well, what do you know! I flew into my west wall at nearly the speed of sound.

Momentum and inertia, IIRC, but I haven't been in high school in a few years.

incorrect. the leftover 360gallons gets converted into food for futas (which they exponentially multiply that amount they intake in thier bodies),and that sperm is then used for rina.

You can fold a piece of paper more than 9 times, however you need a huge piece of paper.

Goldfish seem to have a longer memory, since when Jamie built his "maze" he made colored holes which the fish did reconize, and went through.

Also thanks to the Mythbusters, they busted the Crocodile zig zag myth as well as not being able to keep your eyes open when you sneeze.

A lot of these seem more or less correct, but there's also a few here and there I'd like to see some proof of.

This is actually true. Momentum and inertia would prevent you from going into your wall at the speed of sound, but the longer you're airborne the less they effect you. You could throw further west, but it would only be a fraction of a fraction of a measurement.

Yet another useless fact: They've invented a sniper rifle that can fire a bullet so far that to hit the target accurately, the sniper actually has to take the rotation of the Earth into account.

so, by using drugs and illicit substances which kill brain cells, you have a 1 in 10 chance of killing a cell you actually use, thusly, using drugs increases the percentage of your brain which you actually use...


(yah yah technically no, but funny mathmatically yes)

The elephant has an average penis size of 6 feet. The sperm whale, 10 feet. Where do they put it all!?

Well I'd use the term serial killer loosely on Gein. He committed 3 murders but he did dig up corpses and skin them and used it for lots of reasons. Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs and Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre are both based on Ed Gein.

Gein isn't the only one to do this though. Heinrich Himmler made furniture out human bones and skin from prisoners into lampshades.

Here's another animal one.

Apart from humans, dolphins are the only other mammals that have sex for pleasure purposes.

I've heard that before...Same with the pig's orgasm one...Speaking of the pig one, I wonder if that's where the term "Men are pigs." came from. o.o
