A Little Fact Fat About This And That!

The cat found some more facts you may like so he figured it was time to go on another fact hike. Some are just strange indeed. Not sure who finds such things out at their feed.

There are 293 ways to change a dollar.
If I had to find that out, I'd holler.
The average person's left hand does 56% of the typing.
Pffft my left hand does 100%, so no griping.

A shark is the only fish that can blink both eyes.
I bet the singing bass would call out, lies.
There are more chickens than people on Earth.
Damn, that is a lot of birth.

The longest one syllable word in English is screeched.
Has your one syllable limit been reached?
Almonds are a member of the peach family I hear,
But then the rose family also comes near.

Maine is the only one syllable state.
I guess that is a special fate.
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
No wonder it sticks its head in the ground to hide the pain.

Tigers have striped skin too.
Must get made fun of by a kangaroo.
A dragonfly lives only 24 hours.
Hopefully it gets a sunny day with no showers.

A goldfish have a 3 month, at most, memory span.
Never trust a goldfish plan.
A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.
Whoever counted that must have wanted a pledge.

There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.
Never counted them when I saw them at my hall.
The average person takes 7 minutes to fall asleep.
Damn, my brain must have too many sheep.

Sneezing with your eyes open you can't do.
Try it next time you sneeze at your zoo.
The giant squid has the largest eyes on Earth.
I guess "giant" does hold some worth.

In most ads the time displayed on a watch is 10:10.
Works for the ocd at my den.
A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.
That one I repeated to make sure you hear.

Rubber bands last longer in the fridge.
But I want to shoot them off a ridge.
Peanuts are an ingredient in dynamite.
No wonder they can give ones liver a fright.

And there you are, some more useless facts from my sand bar. I have to get you humans into gear, as you may not hear. 32 muscles cats have in each one while you guys are just slow under the sun. Now you have some new facts class, all from my fact finding little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. All the facts are simply keen

  4. Lmao @ the ostrich!!!! I guess the little brain is why they hide their head in the dirt. I mean, that has to be more dangerous as they wont see their attacker? Im going to Google this and then get back to.

    Oh, and I could testify to the rubberbands! All my batteries and rubberbands go straight to the fridge. :)

    1. Batteries go in the fridge to?
      That I never knew

      Makes them feel more bold
      Yep, head in the dirt is bad
      I guess they think it hides them a tad

  5. "The average person takes 7 minutes to fall asleep"
    But been tossing and turning despite counting sheep
    True for babies perhaps
    Or one is really dead tired
    Being hungry and without worries perhaps more to it

    1. Yeah, 7 minutes is not me
      An hour or more some night at my sea
      But I suppose if no worries at all were had
      Or a baby at ones pad
      7 minutes would be easy

  22. Hey! No facts are useless. You never can tell when it might come up on Jeopardy! Could win you a bazillion dollars.

    So a goldfish only has a three-minute memory span, huh? No problem. I mean, what do they have to remember? Besides, not remembering must make swimming in circles in their little goldfish bowls a lot more exciting...

      True, must make life grand
