13 people are killed each year by vending machines falling on them.
The average talker sprays about 300 microscopic saliva droplets per minute, about 2.5 droplets per word.

The average smell weighs 760 nanograms.

The average woman consumes 6 pounds of lipstick in her lifetime.

It is estimated that at any one time, 0.7% of the world's population are drunk.

More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes.

At -40 degrees Centigrade/Fahrenheit, a person loses about 14.4 calories per hour by breathing.

It would take 7 billion particles of fog to fill a teaspoon.

It only takes 7 pounds of pressure to rip your ear off.

Now you are smarter.

1. Now I have numbers in my head
Other than Scooby and Shaggy too, who needs to know how many particles of fog you need to fill a teaspoon?

Knowing how to avoid the dangerous donkey, now you're on to something.

3. "Only one person in 2 billion will live to be 166 or older."
Yeah, I don't think so.
