1. If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

2. If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb

3. A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes (i want to be a pig lol)

4. Polar bears are left handed.

5. Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do. (gutted...im left handed)
