That's the Fact, Jack!

Here are some fun and interesting facts I found that I wanted to share with you all:

Men talk on Cell phones 10% more than Women.

Time magazine reported that in Russia, buying carnations or roses is a prerequisite for a first date. They must be given in odd numbers, because flowers given in even numbers are reserved for funerals.

The average American uses 12.4 gallons of water to take a shower which lasts, on the average, 10.4 minutes at an average temperature of 105 degrees.

Your birthday is not a special day because you share it with no fewer than nine million other people on the planet.

The 1st interracial kiss on US TV took place 22nd November 1968 between Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and Lt.Uhura (Nichelle Nichols) on an episode of "Star Trek."

Most American women have their first baby when they are 24.3 years old.

On average, an American makes three pounds of garbage in a day.

Every pound of stored body fat represents about 3500 calories. If everyday for a week you use 500 calories more than you take in, you'll use up one pound of fat (500 calories x 7 days = 3500 calories =1 pound body fat).

On average, an American family sends and receives 28 Christmas cards each year.

The average four year-old child asks over four hundred questions a day.

Ramses II, a pharaoh of Egypt died in 1225 B.C. At the time of his death, he had fathered 96 sons and 60 daughters.

Every three seconds, a new baby is born.

Due to the irregularity of the English coastline, no spot on the country is more than 75 miles from water. Due to the irregularity of my waistline, I am never more than 75 miles from a public urinal.

I witnessed the first interracial kiss as it happened (at least as it first appeared on tv).

As for Rameses ... thank God it wasn't just one woman having 96 children!

But the one about children asking 400 questions a day ... well I think that 400 is a WAY LOW estimate! Its more like a gazillion!

LOL ... enjoyed this a lot!

I'm not sure if it's true that the average woman is 24 with her first child. I think that statistic is a little 'off'

I wonder about " On average, an American family sends and receives 28 Christmas cards each year." As a Jew I don't send or recieve any.

zach- I send about 50 cards out, so average us and that's 25.

I know that some of them seem a little off, but think about why.

Eddy, what do you think the average age for a woman to have her first child is? Higher or lower?

Do you know breast feeding metabolizes approximately 500 calories a day?

Did you know that married couples only talk to each other an average of four minutes a day?

Those are just a couple off the top of my head. I think the 24.3 age for women having children is probably right. Being the average means it's smack dab in the middle of the spectrum and when you throw in the number of teenage pregancies in this country, it sounds about right.
