Women's Hands Are Cleaner Than Men's Hands

This probably doesn't come as a surprise to anyone, other than our friend Monk, that women's hands are generally much cleaner than men's grubby paws.

But, I also read a report yesterday that women blink almost twice as much a men, so that makes us even ... right?

Some other random facts include:
- In Kentucky, 50 percent of the people who get married for the first time are teenagers.
- Kotex was first manufactured as bandages, during W.W.I.
- In Los Angeles, there are fewer people than there are automobiles.
- You're more likely to get stung by a bee on a windy day than in any other weather.
- About a third of all Americans flush the toilet while they're still sitting on it. (not me)
- An average person laughs about 15 times a day.
- Research indicates that mosquitoes are attracted to people who have recently eaten bananas.
- Penguins can jump as high as 6 feet in the air.
- The average person is about a quarter of an inch taller at night.
- A sneeze zooms out of your mouth at over 600 m.p.h.

- In 1980, there was only one country in the world with no telephones - Bhutan.
- Your right lung takes in more air than your left one does.
- Every person has a unique tongue print.
- Women's hearts beat faster than men's.
- You can only smell 1/20th as well as a dog. (not as it stick, they smell 20x worse in that sense of the word)
- Only 55 percent of all Americans know that the sun is a star. (and you wonder why I put no faith in polls?)
- The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in Jello. (who's E.T.?, ask your parents)
- Most American car horns honk in the key of F. (there's a joke in there I'll refrain from typing out here)
- The world population of chickens is about equal to the number of people. (we'd be overrun by them if it wasn't for The Coloniel)
- In 75% of American households, women manage the money and pay the bills.
- Every time Beethoven sat down to write music, he poured ice water over his head.
- Some toothpastes contain antifreeze.
