Friday Fun Facts- Just Plain Interesting

To bring you interesting facts, I cruise the internet in the strangest places. Today’s tidbits actually come from a radio station! The first one grossed me out so much I had to keep reading. These are some of the most random facts I’ve come across and I hope you find them as interesting as I did.

1. A cockroach can live for 7 days off the toothpaste residue in a toothbrush you only used once.1864655cc6yqk20aa

2. Bubble gum is pink because pink was the only color of dye lying around when its inventor, Walter Diemer, made a good batch of it.69781_1573344448873_1093404299_31450149_5503978_n

3. The world record for constipation is 102 days.

4. Of the 12 men who walked on the moon, 11 were Boy Scouts. The only one who wasnโ€™t was James Irwin, from Apollo 15, who became the eighth man to walk on the moon in 1971.

5. Salmon are pink because they eat so many red-colored shellfish. Except the farmed salmon you eat, they donโ€™t eat shrimp, so they should be gray. During processing, a pink coloring is added to make you feel more comfortable.raw_salmon

6. Bill Gatesโ€™ house was designed using a Mac.

7. Sprinting for 60 minutes burns as many calories as jogging for seven hours.

8. The police in Dubai have a Ferrari and Lamborghini, allegedly because so many other people there have Ferraris and Lamborghinis, the cops also need them to keep up in case of a high-speed chase.lamborghini
