  1. McDonalds calls frequent buyers of their food “heavy users.”
  2. Coca-Cola would be green if coloring wasn’t added to it. Sounds tasty.
  3. Your nose can remember 50,000 scents.
  4. The human eye is so sensitive that if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle flickering at night from up to 30 miles away.
  5. When you blush, the lining of your stomach blushes too.

  6.  A human will eat on average 70 assorted insects and 10 spiders while sleeping.
  7. New York drifts about one inch farther away from London each year.
  8. A mole can dig a tunnel that is 300 feet long in only one night.
  9.  A hardboiled egg will spin, but a soft-boiled egg will not.
  10.  If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and die.

And the final fact of the day that I found humorous….
