Strange Facts

Tuesday, February 24, 2009
You can tell I'm totally out of good blogging topics when I turn to copying strange facts off other websites. Actually, you could just go to to read these odd tidbits (and more) if you want. But if you're feeling particularly lazy, like me, you can just scroll down to view some of their discoveries.

So... enjoy the strangeness:
"During your lifetime, you'll eat about 60,000 pounds of food, that's the weight of about 6 elephants.

In space, astronauts cannot cry properly, because there is no gravity, so the tears can't flow down their faces.

There are more plastic flamingos in the U.S, than real ones.

More people use blue toothbrushes, than red ones.

Your ribs move about 5 million times a year, every time you breathe.

Lightning strikes about 6,000 times per minute on this planet.

The average American/Canadian drinks about 600 sodas a year.

There wasn't a single pony in the Pony Express, just horses.

It was once against the law to slam your car door in a city in Switzerland."
