An apple, onion, and potato all have the same taste. The only thing that provides the difference in flavor is the smell of each. If you don't believe this is true, take a bite of each while pinching your nose closed. They should all taste sweet.

There are at least 1750 O's in each can of Spaghetti O's.

SPAM stands for Shoulder Pork and hAM.

No matter how you much you try, bubbles will always be round.

Jeffrey Jones, Ferris Bueller's principal, is a registered sex offender/pedophile in real life.

Gelatin is made from ground pigs' hooves. (Who invented this, how, and why? lol)

There are about a million sensory cells in each one square patch of skin on the human body.

Scientists aren't sure why we have body hair, although many believe it was merely to serve the purpose of detecting bugs on the skin.

When a female spider lays her eggs, she dies. When a bee stings you, it flies away to die.

EVERYONE is born with cancer cells. It is just genetics or unknown reasons that 'stir them to life'.

The only part of the human body that never changes size from birth to death is the eyes.

Dogs don't see colors.

Bulls aren't enticed by the red color of those 'flags'. They are enticed by the movement and will 'charge' regardless of the color.

The 7th most common fear of humans is the fear of vomit, AKA Emetophobia.

McDonald's chicken McNuggets contain only 8% chicken.

The human eye sees everything upside down. It's our brain that 'fixes' that.

The 'delivery cost' of an American car is about double than that of one that is shipped from overseas.

There are 3 serums used in death by injection. The first one relaxes the person. The second stops all motor skills. The third one stops breathing.

Bubble gum started off being made from whale blubber.

EDIT:
After it was pointed out that dogs do see some color, I thought I'd check into it online. There are two parts of the retina for detecting light and color. Rods and cones. Cones are what allow us to see colors. Years ago, the theory was that dogs couldn't see colors because they had no cones in their retinas but have since discovered a few. They theorize that dogs might see some color but that can't be confirmed one way or another since a dog can't be asked what he can or can't see. Incidentally, a dog's eyes have lots of rods allowing them to see even better at night than in the daylight.

A day without fusion is like a day without sunshine.

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

CGM3 feels outclassed.

47% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
