Friday Fun Facts 6: Fuzzy Math

Here are a few interesting statistics for your Friday enjoyment...

You Snooze, You Win! You burn more calories sleeping than watching TV. (And if you sleepwalk, you'll burn more calories than jogging).

Rats Have More Fun? Male and female rats have sex twenty times a day. (Ever see a sad rat? Me neither).

Flying is Safer. Annually, donkeys kill more humans that plane crashes. (Death by donkey can't be fun. I'd rather go down in flames).

Ewwww. 25% of the total weight of your old pillow is dust and dust mites. (OK, that's just plain nasty).

Great. I am going to dream tonight of getting killed by a rambunctious jackass at one of those donkey shows. But first I need a new pillow.

Death by Donkey! Oh man, now I'll have to come up with a short story just do I can use that as the title! Awesome!

But for now I need to go burn a few pounds... (imitating rats - just kidding).

I agree with fated on items one and two. But I think that "death by ass" would be an AWESOME headline.

Death by donkey...what a humiliating obituary that would make.

'k, that's why rats are so fat and sassy!

I wonder if that is why every time I beg for sex AJ calls me a rat?

Plane crashes usually kill instantly, but I'm sure a fatal ass kicking would take some time.

I'm buying new pillows THIS week for my family.

No matter WHAT - I still hate rats!!!

I believe that my pillow is 25% dust and mites and other awful things - my only comfort - which is rather mean - is that my husbands pillow is at least fifty/fifty!

Thanks for the pillow one, now I am feeling scared to sleep! But if I sleep I will work off calories!

exactly why I no longer date donkeys

And how do these donkeys accomplish this exactly? Perhaps an investigation is in order?

my son sleepwalks and i am certain he burns more calories doing that than watching tv. We had to put the tv in timeout this week...it is too addicting for them. i didn't put the tv in timeout for me, I don't ever watch it...but i have been cutting back my online time...it is addictive, too, no?

hope all is well with phoenix & co. :)

I wonder how high the ratio would get if you never changed your pillow over your whole life? Would it eventually weigh so much that you couldn't pick it up? At what point does it become so dense that it develops a gravatitaitonal pull so strong that you can't leave bed in the morning?

"Sorry boss, I can't come in today - I can't overcome my pillow's gravity."

Definitely incentive to buy myself new pillows!
