Very rich, unattractive men usually have beautiful wives who under normal circumstances would have nothing to do with their husbands if they were poor.
Whoops, sorry everyone knows that.

The average male "member" is roughly 5 1/4 inches long. If you ask most women they will say 8 inches.

People who eat pizza cold are considered legally insane. (okay, maybe not...but cold pizza is disgusting)

Cigarette smoking is one of the more enjoyable forms of suicide.

You can legally kill someone in Florida if you "feel threatened" in any way.

Taking too much Diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl and most sleep aids) will cause you to hallucinate.

It's actally pretty fuuny you ask, why just yesterday my wife said she was in a restroom that had a list full of, "Did you know that" kind of stuff. That was the only one she could remember. She almost called me because she knows I eat this stuff up.

Probably not the drunken story you expected huh?

I actually know this from work:

Bats can't launch into flight from the ground. They have to soar off of something.
A group of rats is called a mischief
Mosquitos can breed in only a teaspoon of water.
Only 6 people have survived rabies, only one person, a 16 year old girl, has survived intact(2005).
Mosquitos stay within one mile of their breeding site. But can travel upwards of 10 miles a night.
Rats stay close to their home. Not going more then 100 feet away.
From my husbands job:

And all recent models of cars have a black box.

Does this technique work on cats?

Moose have very poor vision, some have even tried to mate with cars.

The best substance to wash a pet with after it has been sprayed by a skunk is Tomato juice. It almost neturalizes the skunk smell. Pray to God you never have to wash a dog with tomato juice.

Sheep can survive in snow drifts up to two weeks.

The more that is learned about the ecological benefits of bats, the
more home gardeners are going out of their way to entice these
amazing winged mammals into their neighborhoods. Bats are voracious
insect eaters, devouring as many as 600 bugs per hour for four to six
hours a night.

This is very true. The incidence of rabies in bats is actually relatively low.

In fact, you can find online a very simple plan to build a bat house. Or you can order them.

They are best bug zappers you can find. Not to mention, it is kinda fun to watch them work at night.

LOl that seems appropriate.
And you never know when you need an army of frogs.

DYK that the polar bear is the only land animal that can't be seen on infrared because it is so insulated?
