I seem to have centered all of my attention in recent days to male and female issues to the exclusion of all else.  It’s time to get back to what this blog is all about, Totally Useless Information.  There seems to be a never ending supply of useless facts and stupid information to keep me and this blog going for many years to come.  I’ve already turned myself into a huge steaming pile of trivia which may come in handy some day playing Trivial Pursuit but not for much else.  Maybe if I spread the information around a little it will make room in my skull for  other new and useless things I may stumble upon. These factoids were collected from hither and yon and have no reason to exist other than to humor us.  Here goes nothing.

  • More than ten people a year are killed by vending machines.
  • President George W. Bush was once a cheerleader.
  • The average person spends three years of his or her life on the toilet.
  • Pilgrims ate popcorn at the first Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Iceland consumes more Coca-Cola per capita than any other nation.
  • More Monopoly money is printed in a year, than real money printed throughout the world.
  • There is a village in Ireland called Muff, and they have their own diving club.
  • Seven percent of Americans eat at McDonalds every day.
  • The only First Lady to ever carry a loaded revolver was Eleanor Roosevelt.
  • Polar bears are left-handed.
  • McDonald’s did away with its spoon-shaped coffee stirrers because people were using them to snort cocaine.
  • Men who kiss their wives in the morning live five years longer than those who don’t.
  • Outside of the bedroom, the most common place for adults in the U.S. to have sex is in a car.
  • At any given hour there are an average of 61,000 people airborne over the United States.
  • Seven pitches is the average life span of a Major League Baseball.
  • Twenty nine percent of women spend more time shopping for shoes than they do looking for a life long mate.
  • According to statistics, Australian women are most likely to have sex on the first date.
  • It’s impossible to sneeze and keep your eyes open.
  • The giant squid has the largest eyes in the world.
  • The U.S. Government spent $277,000 on pickle research in 1993.
  • American Airlines saved $440,000 in 1987 by eliminating one olive from each first-class salad.

I hope that’ll ease the withdrawal pains caused  by your useless crap addiction.  I’m afraid I’m too far gone to be helped so I’ll just keep on collecting this stuff and shovel it off to you.  As always, your welcome.
