    If NASA sent birds into space they would soon die, they need gravity to swallow.

    A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes.

    Studies show that if a cat falls off the 7th floor of a building, it has about 30% less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the 20th floor. It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself.

    If a statue in a park is of a person on a horse that has both front legs in the air, then the person died in battle. If the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

    No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver and purple.

    Sherlock Holmes never said "Elementary, my dear Watson".

    In "Casablanca", Humphrey Bogart never said, "Play it again, Sam".

    The average person falls asleep in seven minutes.

    A 'jiffy' is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.

      and that's why roaches are the only thing that's gonna be alive after the nuclear war. A roach stand for longevity and that's one of the reasons papa roach was named papa roach. the other reason was because there lead singer Jacoby Shaddix AKA Coby **** had a grandfather whos last name was roatch and they called him papa. so they changed the spelling of roatch to roach and you get papa roach.
