We cannot guarantee the following bits of weird news are true, but we almost did our best to find out!  Enjoy.

Fear makes the earwax flow, although scientists aren’t sure why. Earwax, yucky and disgusting as it is, stops germs from setting up camp in those lovely, damp, warm holes we call ear canals.

This just in: Neptune eats planet, kidnaps (moonnaps?) moon. That’s all we have to say on that.

Have you seen the latest film version of Alice in Wonderland? Turns out Alice isn’t the only one dropping down a rabbit hole. Sufferers of “Alice in Wonderland syndrome” often see objects and distances as larger or smaller than they normally appear, creating a sort of “funhouse” vision of the world. Lewis Carroll was said to be a sufferer.

The old-timers called them homunculus, or little men. Benign tumors bristling with hair, bits of teeth, skin, sweat glands…sometimes even eyeballs or hands.  No, not undeveloped fetuses, just (gag) debris that may develop into a growth in men or women.

Gross gas facts: (Hey, you knew we had to go there at some point.):

  • A deceased person will still fart shortly after death.
  • They actually make special underwear for people who pass gas a lot. They are called Fartypants. (We think this one is a joke, but check out GasBGon pants)
  • Termites have the smelliest farts. These creatures’ farts are believed to be a major contributor toward global warming.

Why do we do it? It’s Friday! Send in your wacky fact with a link and if we can almost say it’s true, we’ll post it.
