Off the Wall

Just a mish-mash of photos I have left…and some off the wall facts!

All info comes from THE FREEDOM INSTITUTE: useless facts (dealing with people who drive you crazy/totally useless facts)

Hope you enjoy!!

  • In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the world’s nuclear weapons combined.
  • A crocodile cannot stick its tongue out.
  • On average, 100 people choke to death on ballpoint pens every year.
  • The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building.
  • On average people fear spiders more than they do death.
  • It’s possible to lead a cow upstairs…but not downstairs.
  • Thirty-five percent of the people who use personal ads for dating are already married.
  • Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older.
  • Table tennis balls have been known to travel off the paddle at speeds up to 160 km/hr.

“The New York action painters want their pictures to jump off the walls and chase you down the street.”
