    If you had time on your hands, perhaps you may have been the scientist responsible for these amazing discoveries!

    * 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.)

    * The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.

    * A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.

    * Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
    (A new alternative to exercise? We think not. Don’t try this at home……but trying it at work may be helpful!)

    * The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It’s like a human jumping the length of a football field.
    (Olympic flea jumping champions, watch out!)

    * The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
    (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

    * Butterflies taste with their feet.
    (Something I always wanted to know.)

    * The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

    * 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.
    (OK, 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.)

    I’ve found a way to help you save and earn whilst not selling or delivering any product. If interested, drop me an email or PM me to find out how

    Hee hee Geo… I found out the cockroach one is pretty true! We had this corker of a cocky in our toilet and I managed to stun it with the bottle of DUCK, when the next blow took its head clean off. Body laid on its back with legs going madly. (This was late at night…)

    Next day, went to the loo, sure enough, cockroachs legs still powering on while on its back with no head… Ants started to pick at the remains…

    Two days after intial decapitation, cockraches legs finally stops moving due the fact the ants had completly eaten its insides out… Nice work… The strange thing was that even though ants were eating its guts, the legs kept moving as if it wanted to run away!!!
