    Did you know that 822 million cubic feet is the amount of air displaced by the burping of tupperware per year?

    Here's one...

    In the history of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, covering a span of over 1,500 kickoff returns, they have never returned one for a touchdown. Not one!

    Do you know why, when you see a flock of geese flying overhead, one side of the V is always longer than the other?

    Because there are more geese on the longer side.

    Here's another one:

    The buttons on Women's shirts are on the left because slaves used to dress "the women." For some reason, it stuck.

    The sound of a snore (up to 69 decibels) can be almost as loud as a pneumatic drill (70-90 decibels).
    It takes more than two tons of South African rock to produce less than an ounce of gold.

    I always thought that the buttons on womens clothing were on the other side (compared to gents clothing) becuase of the way people used to sit in church (each sex had it's own side. Women to the left and gents to the right)- that way the opposite sexes would not get inappropriate glimpses of "what lies beneath" of each other. [​IMG]
    At least that is the explanation I've heard, but I have to admit I cannot verify it.

    If you make a fist with your hand, that's the size of your heart. Also, if you make two fists and put them together, that is the size of your brain.
