Smile, you're a MCP!

The next time someone calls you a Male Chauvinist Pig (MCP), give that person a nice big grin. Why? Read on....

Some interesting facts (with comments)

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.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death!
(I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
(Don't try this at home, maybe at work)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
(Honey, I'm home. What the....?!)

The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
(30 minutes... lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(I still want to be a pig... quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Something I always wanted to know, duh?)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

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)

A cat's urine glows under a black light.
(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

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)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.
(What about that pig??)

My blog friends, apologies if you didn't see me commenting on your blogs. My internet access is still intermittent. One minit ada, the next tarak liao. This post itself took me 6 hours to upload! :(

30 mins orgasm? Whats the point? A pig doesn't have sex for pleasure. Might as well give up that 30 mins for a human or dolphin right? :P

Hahaha... looks like Belacan is in his horny mood!

Is alright belacan, no need to apologise ;), as long you still provide belacan now and then.

ROTFLOL...the belacan says...

Lucia Lai said...

ya belacan, we understand. no apology needed.

a female praying mantis initiate sex by ripping its mate's head off? this means the male is still alive without his head? hmm... and i'm sure many of you know of the black widow spider who kills and eats her mate immediately after sex?

interesting facts there (though i came across a few already). thanks for sharing.

Err... say 1 kg mini bomb and v=energy of fart per second (J/sec)

E = mc^2 = v for 6.75 yrs
1*((3x10e10)^2) = (6.75*365*24*60*60)v
9.0x10e20 = 2.12868x10e8 x v
v = 4.227e12 J/s
= (4.227e12 / 4.184) calories/sec
= 1.0105e12 calories/sec
= heating 1,010,500,000 kg of water by 1 degrees celcius per second
= heating 1.0105e12 litres of water per second

compare to estimate of ocean's volume of 1.37e9 km3

... radioactive fart or what? ;-p

... more like pseudoscience to me.
