I'm looking for factual stuff - not jokes... ^^
I'll tell you a couple of interesting facts.

1) Each year, 13 people on average, die from vending machines falling on top of them. (I feel sorry for those people)

2) The longest ever recorded flight of a chicken was 13 seconds.

3) If you use the sound wave energy you produce from screeming non-stop for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you have just enough energy to make a cup of coffee (that's boiling the water I think - I had to translate this from Korean)

4) In USA where parties are common, there is a higher chance of being killed by being hit by a champagne cork than being bitten by a venomous spider... XD

8 Hz is the resonating frequency of a chinkens skull.
- how it was figured out - A factory was built next to a chicken farm the week after it was opened up chikens in large numbers started dieing. obviously it was connected to the factory. After much research (obviously both buisnesses wanted to be able to coexist peacfully) they discovered that the machinery in the factory was putting out an unusually strong 8hz tone that caused higher resonances in the chickens skulls - translation the chickens brains were being vibrated to death. The solution was to mount the machinery on rubber pads and insulate the building.

-Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
-Smith & Wesson....The original point and click interface.

Things you can learn from children:

1. A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000-sq. ft. house four inches deep.
2. If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.
3. A 3-year old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.
4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.
5. You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.
6. The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.
7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh," it's already too late. (No matter how old the child!)
8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
9. A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.
10. Certain Legos will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old.
11. Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.
12. Super glue is forever.
13. No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.
14. Pool filters do not like Jell-O.
15. VCRs do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.
16. Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.
17. Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.
18. You probably do not want to know what that odor is.
19. Always look in the oven before you turn it on. Plastic toys do not like ovens.
20. The fire department in Austin, TX, has a 5-minute response time.
21. The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.
22. It will, however, make cats dizzy.
23. Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.
