Did You Know?!...

I love reading those "Did you know" bits of trivia that no one really knows if it's true or not. Personally, someone has to be making these up. I can't imagine there's a scientist out there calculating it would take 100 people farting at the same time to fill a balloon full of hot air in less than 1 minute. Granted, I tested that theory in college with some friends...

So here's my version of Did You Know. I believe these have all been thoroughly researched by someone, somewhere at a prestigious university.

Did you know...

  • Spiders love country music. They can do the two-step 4x faster than any other animal.
  • If you walk backwards more than 100 steps without looking, there is a 90% chance you'll get run over, fall down some stairs, or get mauled by a bear.
  • Most ice cream bought at amusement parks will take 3 hours or longer to melt -- including when it's in your stomach.
  • Owls in the U.K. are more refined than owls in the U.S. Owls in the UK say "Whom"
  • Pigs do not like shit.
  • The phrase "Look ma, no hands!" was originally invented by a really bad sword juggler.
  • If everyone jumped up and down at the same time, the entire Earth would crack like an egg. If everyone jumped up and down a second time, the Earth would crack in two and a big chicken would pop out.
