Things to Know
The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping
the length of a football field. (But I ask...Why?)

(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)
Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Something I always wanted to know.)
The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.(WOW)
Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.
(If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)
Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
(Okay, so that would be a good thing)
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.(I know some people like that.)
Starfish have no brains..
(I know some people like that too.)
Polar bears are left-handed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour
(Don't try this at home,maybe at work)
If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced
enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)
