08/13/2021  Your Useless Information Fix   Leave a comment

It’s been a long week and I’m a little sick of thinking or talking about politics, younger generations, and the pandemic. I’m on overload with more news about masks and all of the assorted BS that goes along with that. I think it’s time for another installment of Totally Useless Trivia. The following items came into my files over the last few years and I love saving them for these not-so-special occasions. Let’s get started.

As an adult human being you have more than 20 square feet of skin on your body about the same square footage as a blanket for a queen-size bed. How creepy is that?

We Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, or 350 slices per second. Yet for some reason we still don’t seem to understand why obesity is running rampant through the country. Are we really that stupid?

An estimated 800,000 senior citizens voluntarily give up their driving privileges each year. The average age at which they surrender the wheel is 85.

All of the clocks in the movie “Pulp Fiction” read 04:20. Rent the movie and check it out.

Americans appear to have the most sex at 132 times a year, with the Russians close behind at 122 times a year. Hard to believe the the French are only at 121.  Let it be known that I’m officially volunteering to verify these numbers.

A portion of the water you drink every day has already been drunk by someone else, maybe several times over. This I didn’t really need to know, Ewwwwwwww!

About 1.7 liters of saliva is produced each day in an average person.  You can’t have those long sloppy wet kisses without it.

A healthy individual releases 3.5 oz of gas in a single flatulent emission, or about 17 oz in a day.  Wonderful, just freaking wonderful.

A kiss stimulates 29 muscles and chemicals causing relaxation. Women seem to like it light and frequent while men like it more strenuous.  I think it’s really 30 muscles if you get my drift. LOL

Condoms will last about a month when stored in a wallet; any longer and its more likely to break. Wish I would have known this back in high school. I carried one for three years.

A Georgia company will mix your loved one’s ashes with cement and drop it into the ocean to form an artificial Reef. It must be “Greenie” heaven.

35 billion emails are sent each day throughout the world. Who cares, it’s mostly SPAM anyway.

61,000 people are airborne over the US at any given time. From a former white-knuckle flier, “better them than me.”

3,400,000 Americans are considered “Extreme Commuters”. These are people who commute over 90 minutes round trip every day to work. Anyone who’s ever lived in a major metro area can verify this one. Route 128 in Boston was my home for years.

That should curb your craving for stupid and useless information for another week or so. When you start going into withdrawal, drop me an email and I’ll fix you right up.
