  4. “1 cent doubled everyday for 30 days becomes 5 million dollars.” Let me try that! I have been trying to do a get rich quick scheme for awhile now. Plus I have lots of pennies to start off with. You can’t walk on your hands while crossing the street in Connecticut. Who does that anyways lol

  6. entomology1988 says:

    Hahaha I live in georgia. That must be why I have never seen a giraff tie to a street post. I can also stick my tongue out and flare my nostrils but an alligator would still eat me.and flaring my nostrils doesn’t get me anywhere in life….

  7. Breakfree says:

    Cool facts bro, they really fix your humour but the one’s that crack me up in laughter are the funny laws of USA like the one with the giraffe. Keep it up.

  8. Pretty unusual facts, on the photocopy one it says worlwide twice

  9. butterflyfree says:

    Cows have regional accents – the fact that I just sat here trying out different “moo” sounds is hilarious!! I think the oldest (most popular) one on here is that it’s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open. Half the time we forget to test it and the other half we can’t really validate if we did it or not!

  10. 4thelaffs says:

    I love that Darwin married his first cousin!

    I will be sure not to cross the street in Hartford on my hands…what about on my elbows, though? Is that ok?

    I have heard that there was a study that proved that crows recognize human faces. I don’t know if they’d recognize someone in a photo, though. Maybe in a lineup!

  11. I love reading things like these. So many interesting facts and a lot of them I didn’t already know. Such a fun read. I hope to see more articles like this. Some of these are really funny. :p

  12. vikkylanderos says:

    Facts like these make me wonder what people were thinking when making some of these laws. Like in California it is illegal to peel an orange in a hotel room or you will get arrested. How odd is that? But thanks for the facts, next time I go to Atalanta I will make sure not to bring my giraffe.

  13. I find it kind of funny that Charles Darwin married his first cousin.I guess he was a victim of his own scientific discovery.

  14. Wylder Chase says:

    Lots of cool facts. Several had me rolling. A cow farts enough in a day to fill thirty gallons and a hummingbird doesn’t even fill one capsule. One thing is for sure, you can’t turn shit back into cornbread.

  15. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories per hour.

    Who bangs their head on the wall for an hour to find out the caloric cost?

  21. Ashok Jadhav says:

    Roadrunner is correct. Fingernails do look longer on a dead person, because the tissues of the finger shrink due to dehydration of the cells.
    However, the hair continues to grow for some time even after death. (But the growth is miniscule.It can not be seen, but measured. )

  22. Mythbusters proved you can sneeze with your eyes open

  23. There is a man whose legal name is “Jesus Condom”

  24. The smallest person on earth is Gul Muhammad..only 1 feet 10 inches..
