Friday Fun Facts 2

Human Psychology: 54% of men think about sex every day or several times a day. (The idea that men think about sex every seven seconds...(hold on)...............the idea that men think about sex every seven seconds is really just...(just a sec)......an urban legend).



Chemistry: Hydrogen is an explosive gas. Oxygen is highly combustible. But when you put the two together (H2O), they make water - which is often used to put out fires. (What do you add to powdered water?)

Health: In the country of Bahrain, a male gynecologist can only examine a woman's...um..."parts" via reflection in a mirror. (I've tried to cut my own hair using this method, and it's impossible. Try performing a pap smear this way. Yowza!)


Animal Kingdom: The Fitzroy River turtle can breathe out of its ass. (I can't do that, but I can talk out of mine).

I love fun facts! So, are there female gynecologists'in Bahrain? I would hope there is! If given a choice between someone treating me directly and someone doing it with a mirror, I'd go for directly every time just to get it over with!

ONLY 54%? Come on, that's too low.

I always talk out of my ass. I can blow steam out of it.

Sex all day long? I'm not really sure if it's all day, but I would like to have it all day. But thinking about it would just make me want to have. But like I said, I would love to do nothing all day but have sex.

Funny stuff. using a mirror to do a pap?

sounds like a new musical brewing: Annie Get Your Gyn.

Do you remember on the internet a couple years ago, someone started a site warning about the dangers of di-hydrogen oxide? I think they even got people to write their congressmen to stop it from being pumped into their homes. Apparently this chemical kills thousands (by drowning) a year :)

I'm with Brian. I can't imagine it's only 54 percent.

BTW, using me as a small sample-size, the seven-second thing could be true. :)

Politicians(and Bud Selig) talk out of their asses all the time, so this turtle.. um, what was I talking about?

You certainly do post out of your ass.

Interesting thoughts, actually. I can admit that, right?

Great round up. I'm ready to face the day.

Q: How many of those turtles are serving in the congress?

54% seems kind of low. I'd guess that 54% of women think about sex each day too.

Using a mirror doesn't make those "parts" look any different. It just makes it harder for the doc to do what he's got to do. How silly!!

Powdered water.... ha, ha, ha!

The turtle thing is hideous.
Talk about bad breath!

Makes you kinda wonder what the other 46% of men are thinking about.

I used to think about sex all day. But after your post, I'm now more consumed with whether turtles are the only animals that can breathe out of their sphincters. Not sure if that's a good thing.

**In the country of Bahrain, a male gynecologist can only examine a woman's...um..."parts" via reflection in a mirror.

WTH so do all the women with serious diseases die as a result of not being diagnosed properly?
I give up.

And they told us man is a descendent of the ape....I know that's not true 100% of the time now! I know LOTS descended from the TURTLE!!!

Uh-uh...no way would a guy give me a pap using the rear-view mirror method. I'll just do it myself, thanks anyway! ;)

54%?? So 46% Don't think about it everyday? I'm starting to feel perverted. I wonder what the number is for women.

Perhaps the gynecologists use mirrors like the dentist use. GIANT light, tiny mirror. lol

The chemistry fact is amazing. To think our existence is so fragile, so unique and all so simple at the same time -- freaks me out!

Is it just me or does that turtle looks like it's shouting out an invitation?

(Darn it, I don't mean to sound like such a pervert, it just seems to happen.)

Awesome facts! Love it! I can hardly believe any of it. Too hilarious to be true ('specially the turtle -- how is that anatomically possible!)!

So I take it that you could suffocate the turtle by sticking a finger up it's ass. If congress was this way it would solve a lot of problems.

Well I always wanted a fun fact about a turtle's ass to add to my inventory of useless knowledge. Thank you Phoenix for making this possible. And Heroes is the best. I had withdrawals last night when it wasn't on.

So, 54% of Congress is thinking about sex, 46% aren`t thinking about anything, and they are all talking out their ass....
That explains alot.

Are you still thinking about sex?

It IS possible to cut your own hair in the mirror! I've been doing it for 15 years now! But you have to have the tri-fold cabinet setup though, so you can actually see the sides and back of your head without craning too far.
