Ok, let's hear you snippets of useless information?

I'll kick off with this one,

In 1993 Americans bought 59,000 miles of dental floss.

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them,

is it a "odd" or a "end"?

An average person's yearly fast food intake will contain 12 pubic hairs.

Annually you will shake hands with 11 women who have recently masturbated and failed to wash their hands.

Annually you will shake hands with 6 men who have recently masturbated and failed to wash their hands.

And the one that really - really makes me think:

Daily you will breath in 1 liter of other peoples' anal gases.

Lefties are evil people. The Latin word for right-handed is 'dexter' and for left-handed it's 'sinister'. Dexter=dexterous=good. Sinister=evil. :)

In England up until the 1950s attempted suicide was a capital offense.

In Queen Victoria's time it was a crime to be a male homosexual. It was not a crime for women because Queen Victoria said "women would never do such a thing".

Damn, but that comment stirred some bad memories. I was born left handed/right brained. Whenever I reached for anything with my Natural hand I, and it, got smacked. The punishment for being born right brained only got worse in Catholic School... Today I can use both hands with equal dexterity.
