17 636 human eyeballs in a Whale's testicle

Did you know that:

  • Each testicle of a Right Whale weighs the same as 17 636 human eyeballs
  • A pile of one million 1 Dollar bills would weight the same as 20.02 Jennifer Anistons
  • The length of your small intestine could fit 3.34 giraffe necks
Neither did I. But if you go to WeirdConverter.com you can find out this and a zillion other crazy conversions of your own design. A pretty cool site.

Other News in a BiPolar Life:
  • Finally got a good night's sleep after a pretty hectic joyride. Between 6am on Sunday Morning and 11am yesterday morning I got precisely 3 and a half hours sleep. I was getting pretty worried. One more night of HeavyDuty insomnia and my mind woulda started getting a bit wobbly. It's always happened in the past. A surefire warning signal.
  • My old friend Zarathustra picked up that the word "meme" contains an egotistical reference to "me". So I thought it would be a great time to share a quote from my Grand Collection of Quotes:
"An egotist is a person of low taste - more interested in himself than in me."
- Ambrose Bierce

  • And whilst on quotes here's a great one by Bertolt Brecht. Got a bit of a Zen koan ring to it I thought:

    "What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?" - Bertolt Brecht

  • Still on quotes: I'm pretty much a quote junkie. I've got a whole collection of dem tings. There's a pretty cool new wiki out WikiQuote.com which has exploded my collection. I'm busy fiddling around with a quote widget that you can customise to show quotes of your choosing for every day of the month. Can't get it to work though - it's a java hack, and my java is not as fluent as my HTML.
HAPPY TUEDSAY!

  3. $50,000 or Jennifer Anniston? Tough choice!

    If you were to tell me that Right Whale sperm was the size of tadpoles, I'd freak!
