    Like the title says...

    1 sperm has 37.5MB of DNA information in it.
    That means a normal ejaculation represents a data transfer of 1587GB in about 3 seconds...

    3G is between 128 and 144 kbps...

    On average, university students will record in their notes between 4-25% of the information which is given in a 1-hour lecture. They will remember around 40% of what is said and shown in the lecture at best.

    If you were to slice a cow in half with a guillotine, it would explode.

    Could you explain this please? Also define which way we're chopping it in half, through the head and ass or from one side to the other?

    This is not really true. The only time cow's 'cut in half' have been observed to 'explode' is on impact from things like motorcycles.

    This requires a high speed inpact, leading to immediate deformation in the flesh and shortly after the high pressure generated in the impact zone would cause internal organs to explode. Bovine intestines tend to have more pressure in them and a high methane content, because of there diet and general construction (cows in general).

    Also people shooting cows have observed an explosive effect.

    When Chuck Norris does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.
