Things That Make You Go Hmmmmmm!!!!!!
Farting helps reduce high blood pressure and is good for your health.
Handshakes were originally meant to make sure that the person you were meeting wasn’t carrying a concealed weapon. The hand clasp proved that your hand was empty and shaking was meant to dislodge any weapons hiding up the sleeve.
You can’t hum while holding your nose closed.
Frogs can suffocate if they hold their mouth open too long.
The harder you concentrate on falling asleep, the less likely to fall asleep.
Horses cannot breathe out their mouths, only their nostrils.
Cats have 2 sets of vocal cords: one for purring and one for meowing.
There are more stars in space than there are grains of sand on every beach in the world.
