Useless Trivia

Okay, so I'm looking up weird and useless trivia for a new project that I'm starting. I'll post pictures of it when it is finished.

I've spent lots of time looking up useless trivia, there are tons of sites for it online. And I have to admit that it get addictive. Some of these things are gross but some are kind of interesting. I'm pretty easily amused. :)

Here are some of the ones that caught my eye:

-The housefly hums in the middle octave, key of F.

-Cats have more then one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs have about ten.

-Honey is the only food that doesn't spoil.

-All polar bears are left handed.

-Powdered non-dairy creamer is flammable.

-A cockroach can live nine days without its head before it starves to death. (I have no desire to find out how someone figured this one out...)

D-onald Duck was banned in Finland because he doesn't wear pants.

T-here are more plastic flamingos in the U.S. than there are real ones.

-Slugs have 4 noses.

-A sneeze travels out of your mouth at over 100mph.

-Months that begin on Sunday always have a Friday the 13th. (This is true! April and July this year are the only two months starting on a sunday and they are the only ones that have a Friday the 13th. Never noticed that one before!)

Okay, I'm done now. I'll have pictures soon of the project I gathered all this stuff for. At least it was fun to research! :)
