04/22/2022 More Weirdness   Leave a comment

Yesterday I posted a few tidbits concerning sexual weirdness laws still being enforced here in our country. With weirdness being the operative word, I thought I would continue with a few more obscure and weird facts that you may not be aware of. It seems that the list grows longer and longer each year.

  • The first step on the moon by astronaut Neil Armstrong was made with his left foot.
  • More Americans choke on toothpicks than on any other item. Ballpoint pens are running a close second.
  • The “gag” rule was instituted in the Senate in 1836 so the Senators would not have to accept, debate, or vote on anti-slavery petitions.
  • Fingernails grow faster on your dominant hand.
  • Tickling requires surprise. Since you can’t surprise yourself, you can’t tickle yourself, either.
  • Fifteen million blood cells are produced and destroyed in the human body every second.
  • The human body has enough fat to produce seven bars of soap.
  • Investor, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Warren Buffett began his illustrious career by collecting and selling lost golf balls.
  • Over a lifetime, an average human being spends approximately 6 months on the toilet.
  • Ironically the official motto of the state of New Hampshire, printed on its license plates, is “Live Free or Die”, and those license plates are made at a state prison.

This quote belongs to Nancy Reagan and is one of my favorites.

“I think more people would be alive

today if there were a death penalty.”
