    Useless Trivia Pt. 3

    1. Two out of three adults in the U.S. have hemorrhoids.

    2. Zip code 12345 is assigned to GE in Schenectady, New York.

    3. Adults spend and average of 16 times as many hours selecting clothes(145.6 hours a year) as they do planning their retirement.

    4.When a piece of glass cracks, the crack travels faster than 3,000 miles per hour.

    5.You're just as likely to die by falling out of bed then you are to be struck by lightning; each is a 1 in 2,000,000 chance. You have a 1 in 3,000,000 chance of being killed by a snake.

    6.Though they were only five and three years old, Susan and Deborah Tripp, two sisters in the U.S. in 1829, weighed 205 and 124 pounds, respectively.

    7. A fourth of the population in metropolitan Detroit claims German heritage, a million people in Michigan as a whole.

    8. A McDonald's straw will hold 7.7ml, or just over one-and-a-half teaspoons of whatever you are drinking. This means that it would take 17,000 strawfuls of water to fill up a standard 34 gal. bathtub.

    9.Two objects have struck the Earth with enough force to destroy a whole city. Each oblect, one in 1908 and again in 1947, struck regions of Siberia. Not one human being was hurt either time.

    Actually the 1908 meteor that struck Tunguska, Siberia never make impact with the ground. It exploded about 15 kilometers in the air. It was the shock wave that caused the damage. Sorry, I had to point that out The rocky metors tend to explode high up in the atmosphere due to pressure effects....
