I don’t think I fart a pound of gas each day, maybe 0.5 milligrams but not 0.5 kilograms. The more trees than stars sounds iffy too. Who has time to calculate all this out?

Interesting, informative and fun. The waste of sperm produced daily by males. Women are born with about 500 eggs to last them their life time of child bearing age. More efficient wouldn't you agree! The 2.3 Billion years before the planet is too hot makes sense, since our sun will gone supper nova in 10 more billion years. I really appreciate this type of learning trivia. Good job Quiz Folks. Thank you.

I don't see how hot water can freeze faster than cold. At some point the hot water will have become cold water.

The total mass of a fart would need to be 0.0371kg or 37.1g for 14 of them to equal 0.5kg. Unfortunately the poster is out by a factor of 1000. Unfortunately the average person will only lose 0.5g of gas by farting each day. :-(

Richard Perkins, in the UK I knew them as ladybirds. My wife is from South Africa and she calls them ladybugs so I guess it depends on which part of the world you are from.

"Ladybirds can fly at speeds up to 60 kph." I have never heard of a ladybird, and you show a picture of a ladybug. Who proofreads these things?
