Default Things They Don't Teach You In School!

I bought a shirt today that listed interesting facts called: Things they Don't Teach You in School. I thought I would share them with you. Here they are:
  • Recycling one glass jar saves enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours
  • During your lifetime, you'll eat about 60,000 pounds of food
  • No piece of square dry paper can be folded in half more than 7 times

  • There are more than 10 million bricks in the Empire State Building
  • Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying
  • Camels have three eyelids to protect them from blowing sand
  • A quarter has 119 grooves on its edge, a dime has one less groove
  • The Earth weighs around 6,600,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons
  • Owls are one of the only birds that can see the color blue
    A lump of pure gold the size of a matchbox can be flattened into a sheet the size of a tennis court
  • You're born with 300 bones, but only have 206 when you are an adult
  • A giraffe can clean its ears and eyes with its 18-inch tongue
  • A sneeze travels out your mouth at over 100 m.p.h.
  • Your heart beats over 100,000 times a day
  • Bats always turn left when exiting a cave
  • The world's termites outweigh the world's humans 10 to 1
  • Rice paper has no rice in it
  • A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second
  • If you counted 24 hours a day, it would take 31,688 years to reach one trillion
  • It is impossible to lick your elbows
  • Girls blink almost twice as much as boys
  • "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" uses every letter of the alphabet
  • There are more chickens than people in the world
  • "Sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is said to be the hardest tongue twister

I learned some of them but um well some of those aren't true. You are born with 275 bones and at teenage age you have 205 bones. And kosher chocolate definately doesn't have bugs legs in it.

Those are some interesting things I didn't know about and would be great conversation starters or then again, maybe not.

What I want to know is what was I eating if it wasn't rice papers wrapped around those Japanese candies my mother used to give me when I was a child; I'll think twice, maybe three times, before I put a piece of chocolate in my mouth knowing there's an average of eight insect legs in it; remind me never to get up close and personal to a giraffe in case its tongue makes its way towards me; and I'll try chewing gum the next time I peel an onion. I especially hope it works when I'm cutting one up. That's when the waterworks happen.
