My Brain is Ignoring My Nose! Kooky Song of Mind Blowing Facts

by Matt Forcey

It’s Friday afternoon and about the right time for a bit of buffoonery.  I’ve called on farcical songster and today’s court jester, Jonathan Mann, to fire up his patented Songatron and spin us out an amusing little ditty.  Please note that it’s always my goal to make sure you learn something new when you visit, regardless of how idiosyncratic. 

What Jonathan has created for our enjoyment accomplishes both of our goals by giving you a few nuggets of titillating info and a smile on your face, both of which I encourage you share with friends this weekend.  Want more from the Songatron?  You can sign up here to receive Jonathan’s Song-a-Day via email.

Jonathan: “I stumbled on to a really wonderful thread on Reddit.com about the most mind-blowing facts people could think of. I collected a bunch of them and made this song!”

Lyrics:

There are more atoms in a single glass of water
than glasses of water in the oceans of the Earth
A blue whales heart is the size of a VW Beetle
and you could swim through its arteries

An adult human has two to nine pounds of bacteria in his or her body

Cleopatra lived closer in time to the first moon landing
than to the building of the Great Pyramid
54 million people alive right now will
be dead within 12 months.

fold over a piece of paper 42 times and it will reach the moon

what a mad, mad world
what a wonderfully nutty universe
what a glorious space to dwell
what a blessing and what a curse

Hydrogen is a light, odorless gas, which,
given enough time thinks about itself.
The chances are high that 120 years from now, I will not be thought of daily.
Just another person who lived on Earth.

You see your nose at all times, your brain just chooses to ignore it.

Optimus Prime and Eeyore were the same guy.
Same with Megatron and Scooby Do
Duck Hunt is two player
A controller in port 2 controls the ducks.

Blue whale is more closely related to a cow, than a cow is to a horse.

what a mad, mad world
what a wonderfully nutty universe
what a glorious space to dwell
what a blessing and what a curse

The age of the observable universe is 13.7 billion years, but it’s a sphere with a radius of 46.5 billion light-years.

Each ejaculation has more sperm than there are people in the united states.
One in 5000 babies are born without an anus It’s called Imperforate Anus.

Our concept of “reality” exists solely in our brain.

Thanks Jonathan.  Have a great weekend everybody!
