If you yelled for eight years, seven months and six days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it!)
If you pass air consistently for six years and nine months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. (That one's easy to understand, isn't it?)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 9.5 m. (And you thought those Monty Python guys didn't do any fact checking!)

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. (How did they know that?)
Polar bears are left-handed. (This means they live, on average, nine years less.)
The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (Are our palates just not sophisticated enough to appreciate the complex taste of pond scum?)
