A poem for you

Another year has passed
And we're all a little older.
 Last summer felt hotter
And winter seems much colder.

There was a time, not long ago
When life was quite a blast.
Now I fully understand
About "living in the past".

We used to go to weddings,
Football games and lunches.
Now we go to funeral homes,
And after-funeral brunches.

We used to have hangovers,
From parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches
And wile the night away.

We used to go out dining,
And couldn't get our fill.
Now we ask for doggie bags,
Come home and take a pill.

We used to often travel
to places near and far.
Now we get sore asses
From riding in the car.

We used to go to nightclubs
And drink a little booze,
Now we stay home at night
And watch the evening news.

That, my friend is how life is,
And now my tale is told.
So, enjoy each day and live it up...
before you're too damn old !


Subject: Facts you could not go on living without knowing!!

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced
enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

(Hardly seems worth it.)

 If you fart consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced
to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

(Now that's more like it!)

 The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body
 to squirt blood 30 feet.


 A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.

 (In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to
death . (Creepy.)

(I'm still not over the pig.)

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour.
 (Don't try this at home, maybe at work)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached
 to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

(Honey, I'm home. What the...?!)

 The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human
 jumping the length of a football field.

(30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

 The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.

(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

  Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Something I always wanted to know.)

 The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmmmmm ...)

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people.

 (If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.

(Okay, so that would be a good thing)

A cat's urine glows under a black light.
(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that . )

 Starfish have no brains

 (I know some people like that too.)
Polar bears are left-handed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for
pleasure .
(What about that pig??)

Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread
these crazy facts and send this to someone you want to bring
a smile to, maybe even a chuckle.

In other words, send it to everyone !

(and God love that pig!)
