  3. Roadrunner says:

    finger nails and hair don’t actually continue growing per se after death, they appear longer since the skin becomes dehydrated and contracts, causing more of the hair and finger nails to become visible.

  4. Mehryn says:

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

  5. Lolita says:

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

  6. Niki says:

    Mythbusters proved you can sneeze with your eyes open

  7. 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. )

  8. Kiara says:

    You have more chance of dying on your way to pick up a lottery ticket than of winning.

    Keeping a tiny onion in each of you armpits heats the body temperature and thus makes it appear like you are suffering from fever.

    Half or more are not true. I can write BS as well to sell an app. Some people…

  13. ossseth says:

    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?

  14. 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. Chris says:

    Are you sure, have you tried ;)

  16. Chris says:

    Some researchers/scientists must have far too much time on their hands!

  17. louis says:

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

  18. 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.

  19. Kaylah says:

    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

  20. 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!

  21. 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!

  22. Charis38 says:

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

  23. Chris says:

    Good spot! I’ve corrected it. Thanks.

  24. 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.

  25. 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….

  26. I live in Ohio, so I figured I would add some funny Ohio laws.

    It is illegal to get a fish drunk.
    In Marion, you can’t eat a donut and walk backward down a city street.
    In Columbus, it is illegal for stores to sell corn flakes on Sunday.
    In North Canton, it is against the law to roller skate without notifying the police.
    In McDonald, your goose may not paraded down Main Street.
    In Toledo, throwing a snake at anyone is illegal.

    “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
