A Brazilian environmental group launched a campaign and found that if a single household flushed the toilet one fewer time a day, it would save 1,157 gallons of water each year. That’s from one household not flushing once a day. The more households volunteer to pee in the shower, the higher the already significant number will go.

Urine is sterile, thanks to our wondrous kidneys. So, as long as the water is running while you're peeing, you're all good. Peeing in the shower is harmless unless someone has a disease like hepatitis that pee can transfer.

"Vasocongestion" is the medical term for "blue balls”. Fact, WTF Fact, Amazing Fact, Uber Fact, Vasocongestion, Blue Balls

"Vasocongestion" is the medical term for "blue balls”.


More: That Feeling

Vasocongestion is the swelling of bodily tissues caused by increased vascular blood flow and a localized increase in blood pressure. Typical causes of vasocongestion in humans includes menstruation, sexual arousal, REM sleep, strong emotions, illnesses and allergic reactions.

Vasocongestion is essential for sexual procreation in mammals since this is the force that causes the hardening of a penis during an erection. The same force leads to the hardening of the clitoris and vaginal lubrication during sexual arousal. 

Other forms of vasocongestion during human sexual activity include sex flush and the swelling of nipples in both men and women. Unpleasant side effects of sex-related vasocongestion may lead to the cramp-like pain of "blue balls" in males and an unpleasant pelvic "heaviness" in women.

Mila Kunis was only 14 years old when "That '70s Show" started. She lied and said she was 18.


More: Forty Years

Milena Markovna "Mila" Kunis (born August 14, 1983) is an American actress. In 1991, at the age of seven, she moved from the Ukrainian SSR to Los Angeles with her family. After being enrolled in acting classes as an after-school activity, she was soon discovered by an agent. She appeared in several television series and commercials, before acquiring her first significant role prior to her 15th birthday, playing Jackie Burkhart on the television series That '70s Show.

In 1998, Kunis was cast as Jackie Burkhart in the Fox sitcom That '70s Show. All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old; Kunis, who was 14 at the time, told the casting directors she would be 18 but did not say when. Though they eventually figured it out, the producers still thought Kunis was the best fit for the role. That '70s Show ran for eight seasons. She won two consecutive Young Star Awards as Best Young Actress in a Comedy TV Series in 1999 and 2000 for her performances.

If "once in a blue moon" is used literally, it means once every 2-3 years. Fact, WTF Fact, Amazing Fact, Uber Fact, Moon, Lunar Cycle, Gregorian Calendar

If "once in a blue moon" is used literally, it means once every 2-3 years.


More: The Neutron Joke

'Once in a blue moon' is an idiom that means, almost never. But, the term 'blue moon' has traditionally referred to an "extra" moon, where a year which normally has 12 moons has 13 instead. The phrase has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon.

One lunation (an average lunar cycle) is 29.53 days. There are about 365.24 days in a tropical year. Therefore, about 12.37 lunations (365.24 days divided by 29.53 days) occur in a tropical year. In the widely used Gregorian calendar, there are 12 months (the word month is derived from moon) in a year, and normally there is one full moon each month. Each calendar year contains roughly 11 days more than the number of days in 12 lunar cycles. The extra days accumulate, so every two or three years (seven times in the 19-year Metonic cycle), there is an extra full moon. The extra moon necessarily falls in one of the four seasons, giving that season four full moons instead of the usual three, and, hence, a blue moon.

Gerald Ford, the 38th president of the United States would turn to his Secret Service agents and loudly proclaim things like "Jesus, was that you? Show some class!" instead of owning up to his farts.

Gerald Ford, the 38th president of the United States would turn to his Secret Service agents and loudly proclaim things like "Jesus, was that you? Show some class!" instead of owning up to his farts.


More: Value Of Pi

Gerald Rudolph Ford Jr. (July 14, 1913 – December 26, 2006) was an American politician who served as the 38th President of the United States from 1974 to 1977. Prior to this he was the 40th Vice President of the United States, serving from 1973 until President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974. Becoming president upon Richard Nixon's departure on August 9, 1974, he claimed the distinction as the first and to date the only person to have served as both Vice President and President of the United States without being elected to either office.

Ford had a very whimsical job for his secret service agents, a rather frustrating one if seen from those poor agent's eyes. Gerald Ford would blame his farts on his secret service people, conspicuously saying things like, "Jesus, was that you? Show some class!" This must leave the agents red-faced, wishing Ford wasn't their president.

Ford appeared in a popular series of televised press conferences with Illinois Senator Everett Dirksen, in which they proposed Republican alternatives to Johnson's policies. Lyndon B. Johnson, the 36th president of USA, expressed his views on the matter at the time, and said, "Jerry Ford is so dumb he can't fart and chew gum at the same time." The press, reported this as "Gerald Ford can't walk and chew gum at the same time."

Life expectancy increases as we age; for each New Year we live, our life expectancy increases by three months. Fact, WTF Fact, Amazing Fact, Uber Fact, Life Expectancy, World War II, Age, Life Span

Life expectancy increases as we age; for each New Year we live, our life expectancy increases by three months.


More: Terrible Prom

Life expectancy is a statistical measure of the average time an organism is expected to live, based on the year of their birth, their current age and other demographic factors including sex.

Life expectancy increases with age as the individual survives the higher mortality rates associated with childhood. Less developed regions of the world have experienced a steady increase in life expectancy since World War II, although not all regions have shared in these improvements. The most dramatic and rapid gains have occurred in East Asia, where life expectancy at birth increased from less than 45 years in 1950 to more than 74 years today.

Some experts assume that life expectancy must be approaching an upper limit, but data on life expectancy between 1840 and 2007 show a steady increase averaging about three months of life per year. The country with the highest average life expectancy has varied over time. In 1840 it was Sweden and today it is Japan—but the pattern is strikingly similar. So far there is little evidence that life expectancy has stopped rising even in Japan.

The oldest confirmed recorded age for any human is 122 years. This is referred to as the "maximum life span", which is the upper boundary of life, the maximum number of years any human is known to have lived.

According to Sanmay Ved's LinkedIn profile, he will complete his MBA from Babson College in May, 2016. And, he has 10 years of entrepreneurial and eCommerce experience, 7 years of digital marketing experience, and 5 1/2 years of corporate experience at Google (across product, sales, and operations).

A strange thing happened at 1:20 AM Eastern Time on Tuesday, September 29 when Ved was learning more about the Google Domains interface. To his surprise, when he searched the domain google.com, he saw the domain was available for $12/year.
Hoping that he'd get an error message at some point, he continued with the process of purchasing the domain. But, things went smoothly, his credit card was charged and he got confirmation emails and texts for the same purchase. 

As Ved wrote in his LinkedIn blog that he loves Google to heart, hence he reported the incident to Google Security. Google Security contacted him back and to show their gratitude they offered to reward him $6006.13. But Ved asked that the money be donated to the Art of Living India Foundation. Upon hearing that, Google doubled the amount

Ved wrote in his blog, "I have chosen that the donation be made towards the Art of Living's education program which runs 404 free schools across 18 states of India, providing free education to more than 39,200 children in the slum, tribal and rural belts where child labor and poverty are widespread. The schools nurture the complete child, including body, mind and spirit."
