I’ve been infected with that same disease I get every year at this time. It always seems to take me by surprise which I don’t really understand.  It’s a deceptive little virus that kind of sneaks up on me . . . it’s called Spring Fever. All I really give a damn about is getting out of the house, standing in fresh air, feeling the sun on my face, and being able to walk along a beach.  Is it any wonder why I can’t seem to concentrate on anything else?

I’ve been doing a lot of internet surfing and perusing through my collection of books recently and have happened upon a huge steaming pile of ridiculously stupid trivia that anyone in their right mind could care less about. That’s the reason I decided to share it with you.

These tidbits are in no particular order of importance, just a whole lot of true nonsense.

  • Odds of being killed in a tornado – 1 in 2 million.

  • Odds of being killed by falling out of bed – 1 in 2 million.
  • It only takes 7 pounds of pressure to rip your ear off.
  • On average, there are 178 sesame seeds on each McDonalds Big Mac bun.

I guess all the propaganda we’ve heard for years about the safety of air travel is true.  The odds are certainly better than those for car accident deaths.

  • Driving 55 miles (88 km) per hour instead of 65 miles (105 km) per hour increases your car mileage by about 15%.
  • The average person flexes the joints in their finger 24 million times during a lifetime.
  • 1/3 of all cancers are sun related.
  • If we had the same mortality rate now as in 1900, more than half the people in the world today would not be alive.
  • Airbags explode at 200 miles per hour.

Let’s hope none of us have to experience an airbag situation.  They can keep you alive during a collision and then break your damn neck at the same time.

Twenty-nine more useless facts you can use to win bar bets.
