A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes

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.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)

The human heart! creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
(O.M.G.! )

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death! (Creepy)
(I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
(Don't try this at home,maybe at work)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
("Honey, I'm home. What the....?!")

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
(30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

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

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

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

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
(Hmmmmmm......)

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.
(okay, 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)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
(What about that pig??)

Now that you've smiled least once, it's your turn to spread these crazy facts and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even a chuckle). In other words, send it to everyone.

WRONG! it would take 1 year, 7 months, 26 days, 20 hours, 26 minutes and 40 seconds (given a yell of 80 db = .001 watts per second)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
Wrong! it would take 68 BILLION farts to equal the energy first atomic bomb (80 terajoules)

The human heart! creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.
(O.M.G.! ) Maybe...

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
Wrong, pigs mate for under 3 minutes.

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death!
WRONG! it dies of thirst in about a week, it can go without food for a month.

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
Maybe, but no one that I know has tried it.

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
WRONG! A male praying mantis gets beheaded only 5-31% of the time while mating.

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
WRONG! 350 times it's length equals 7 football fields (6' tall individual) Do the math....

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
Kinda correct, but a small catfish has over 250,000 taste buds as each skin cell is a taste bud.

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
Maybe.. one pair of lions was seen maiting 157 times in 55 hours.

Butterflies taste with their feet.
WRONG! Butterflies can only 'sense' presence/absence of sugar in plants with their feet.

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
Depends... what 'strength' is being evaluated - absolute, dynamic, elastic, or endurance?

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
WRONG! data was from an invalid study in 1980 and is still repeated even though it has not been supported in any other study.

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
WRONG! Sloths, snails, snakes, rhinos, hippos CANNOT jump.

A cat's urine glows under a black light.
true, but any animal producing protien laden urine will also glow under black light human, rats, dogs etc.)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
American Ostrich Association states an ostrich brain is no bigger then it's eye.

Starfish have no brains.
WRONG! Starfish have a complex nervous system that controls it's movements and is spread through out it's body.

Polar bears are left-handed.
WRONG! Studies have shown polar bears can use both hands for any task.

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
WRONG! Most animals do not understand that mating produces offspring. Virtually all animals mate for pleasure, but timing can be dictated by hormonal levels. eg. Elk/deer/moose do not fight (to keep their harems intact) specifically for producing offspring, they fight for pleasure in mating season. Offspring is merely the end result of pleasure.

Facts bear little resemblance to the unsupportable statements taken at face value by unsuspecting masses. The term 'useful idiots' comes to mind.

wow!!! dale doesnt get out much lol... but he said that pigs orgasm for 30 minutes not that they mate for 30 minutes if only you had sex more you would know the difference. keep the right hand strong! SOLID!!!

Global Skeptic said...

anonymous, just 'cuz you say it and believe it, doesn't make it so. There is no peer-reviewed, empirical scientific evidence that substantiates the 'tale' of pig's 30 minute orgasm. Believe if you must. Global warming was believed by many too, now we know it was pure fiction.

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.

What about starfish, anenomes, worms, roaches, etc.

They are the only animal with knees that ca't jump.

Global Skeptic said...

Sorry to inform you... but you are still wrong. Many animals cannot jump, many animals with knees cannot jump. Many mammals cannot jump. Many mammals with knees cannot jump.

"The general consensus of opinion is that many mammals cannot jump. These include elephants, sloths, hippopotami and some burrowing rodents."

Ignorance is NOT bliss, ignorance is the penalty the uninformed choose to wear.

Lol Dale, aside from the math, I was going to do the same thing. Also, monkeys have sex for fun. There was this one creepy one that was jacking off while staring at my friend when we went to the zoo

Ever see a dog hump a pillow, stuffed animal or even a persons leg? I kinda believe he is pleasuring himself.
