Interesting (or Stupid) Facts, Quotes, and Truths I’ve Read




Okay…I’m on deadline. So this week I decided to just share with you some very intriguing, interesting, or weird things I’ve read. Some of them make me laugh, some of them just make me think.

· Making love burns the same number of calories as climbing two flights of stairs.

· In Laos, it is illegal for a woman to show her toes.

· When a woman is pregnant, her uterus expands to 500 times its normal size. (See why we’re the superior sex?)

· While a woman is menstruating, her middle finger’s sensitivity is lessened. (And how did they learn this?)

· The modern tampon was invented in 1933 by a male gynecologist.

· Never marry a man who refers to the rehearsal dinner as “The Last Supper.”

· A woman’s magazine asked whether you would rather have sex or chocolate. Seventy percent of those responding preferred chocolate.

· Women are far less likely to drink juice or milk straight out of a milk or juice container. (Like this took a scientists to prove.)

· Nipple piercing was a hot fad in women in the 1800s. (Ouch!)

· Most arguments in the home take place in the kitchen.

· A woman can tell just by looking at man if he wants sex. That’s because, whenever a woman looks at a man, he wants sex.

· Women who read romance novels have sex twice as much as women who don’t. (If your husband ever complains about the money spent on books, tell him this one!)

· The Victorian cure for flabby breasts was a bath in fresh strawberries.

· Twice as many women as men can touch their tongues to their noses. (Hmm.)

· In Los Angles in 1976, a woman legally married a rock with 20 guests attending. (Hey, don’t you think we’ve all dated her husband once?)

· Don’t try to meet guys in bars. It’s like window shopping. Looking at fancy clothes on a bunch of dummies.

· Men carry their brains lower than women do, so when they’re scratching their crotches, they’re not being gross . . . they’re just thinking.

· Men are born with an innate ability to fold a map. But you can’t train them to fold towels, napkins, or fitted sheets.

Okay…anyone read anything unusual or interesting lately? Come on, I need a laugh.

Wow, the nipple piercing one was news to me. I must be a writer, because I suddenly got a whole story idea form that tidbit. Unfortunately, I don’t write historicals…

Drinking 8ozs. of ICE cold water burns 123 calories!

I knew drinking cold water burned calories but I didn't know how many. Got a bowflex and am flowing the 6week program. Thus, that is where I picked up this tidbit.

Black tea has seven times more caffeine than coffee.

Vibrators were considered a household appliance in the early 20th centuryand were the fifth appliance modified to be powered by electricity.

Christie Craig said...

Gemma,

That one floored me, too. I've never read it in a historical either. Hmm...I think our minds might be on the same wave link.

Scary, huh?

Christie Craig said...

Keri,

I'm going in for the ice water right now.

Now I just need to know how many glasses will cover the candy bar. LOL.

Good luck on that bowflex!!

Christie Craig said...

Suzan,

Seriously . . . black tea has more caffeine? Okay, I'll admit it was the second half of your post that really stuns me.

They were really considered a household appliance? I wonder if wives got upset if their husbands got them this household appliance as a gift? LOL.

MsHellion said...

The "don't marry a man who calls the rehearsal dinner "The Last Supper"" nearly broke me out in hives. That sounds way too much like the men I date.

*note to self* STOP dating unless you're going to do it properly.

terrio said...

I'm one step ahead of Hellion as I've already stopped dating. Ha!

I think I need to take a bath in fresh strawberries. *sigh*

This isn't really funny, but did you know Saudi Arabia is considered a Third World Nation? With a population of nearly 30 mil, there are more than 100,000 millionaires but one fifth of the population is unemployed. And nearly 5 mil employed workers are from other countries because the Saudi workforce doesn't have the required skills.

At the same time, education is free to all Saudi citizens yet few bother going and so there is a high illiteracy rate. Which explains the unqualified workforce.

Like I said, none of this is funny, but I still found it amazing to learn. (Can you tell I started my Sociology class this week?)

Christie Craig said...

MsHellion,

Enjoy those dates, just don't get your heart broken. Who knows...you might be able to tame one of those bad boys.

Thanks for stopping in.

Christie Craig said...

Terrio,

We're gonna have to chat about this whole anti dating policy. You gotta give love a shot.

And shh, but I went out and bought a whole case of strawberries today!

Yes, all your info about about Saudi Arabia is very interesting. Learning about other countries, traveling to other countries, is a great education.

We can see things that we are doing right and some things that we are doing wrong by comparing ourselves.

Thanks for stopping in.

Michelle said...

Oh that is too funny. I haven't read anything interesting lately, and I don't know that i'd be able to remember if I did.

Great blog, can't wait for next weeks.

Christie Craig said...

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for stopping in. I'll see you next week.

I can touch my tongue to my nose. This entertained people when I was in 5th grade. xD I'm also double jointed in my fingers and big toes, and can move my ears back and forth.

Lauren said...

The nipple piercing thing gets stranger. It used to also be done to help with breast feeding. The Victorian England Doctors used to recommend it!

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
