Ain't That the Truth!

Because it's Monday, I thought I'd give you a few  facts you can share with others to make your day just a little more interesting. Keep in mind that I have not personally verified all any of these facts. But I found them on the internet, so I'm certain they must be true.
  1. Banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour. Or you could just ... you know ... exercise.
  2. Pteronophobia is the fear of being tickled by feathers!  And nomophobia is the fear of being without mobile phone coverage. What's your point?
  3. When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red. Does it happen when they realize they've run out of coffee in the morning or just when they get cut off in traffic?
  4. A flock of crows is known as a murder. And a group of jellyfish is known as a smack.
  5. “Facebook Addiction Disorder” is a mental disorder identified by Psychologists. The danger is real!
  6. The average woman uses her height in lipstick every 5 years. I prefer to put it on once a day, but to each her own.
  7. May 29th is officially “Put a Pillow on Your Fridge Day“. And today is National Chocolate Pudding Day. Now that makes more sense!
  8. Cherophobia is the fear of fun. And thaasophobia is the fear of being boring.
  9. Human saliva has a boiling point three times that of regular water. Who tested this?!?!? Eww!!!
  10. Bananas are curved because they grow towards the sun. This just makes me smile!
  11. During your lifetime, you will produce enough saliva to fill two swimming pools. How is it even possible to test this?
  12. If Pinocchio said “My Nose Will Grow Now”, it would cause a paradox.
  13. Polar bears can eat as many as 86 penguins in a single sitting. I'm sure there's a polar bear or two that could squeeze in 87 if he didn't mind feeling a little stuffed.
  14. Heart attacks are more likely to happen on a Monday. Well of course! 
  15. in 2015, more people were killed from injuries caused by taking a selfie than by shark attacks. How sad is it that this doesn't even surprise me?
So there you go--topics for lunchtime at work. Your welcome.

P.S. Which facts do you really believe to be true?


  1. Lol....ok just ewww, on the saliva ones and the pillow in the fridge!

  2. Selfie injuries probably rank up there above many other things as well!

  3. What if you take a selfie on a boat with a shark midair behind you? That's twice as dangerous!!

    1. Knowing you, Paul, if it happened to anybody it would be you. 😏

  4. So if x=5 and 2+2=cheese puff, that means a woman spends a lot of money on lipstick. Lol I just did math, and that's also dangerous!

  5. I literally used these for topics during lunchtime at work lol thanks!
