|<jordie3> No way.|
|<Popeshaver> I am sorry but the penultimate rumor is true. So sadly true...*sobs*|
|<Lauren> Tuesday IS the longest day of the week and 42% hourglassing seems about right to me for internet use (but I still use a dial-up connection). Last night I had the opportunity to monitor my own breathing and that of my partner and can tell you that #13 has to be wrong. Although I lost count somewhere around 2,000, I was definitely ahead at that point. The rest seem pretty unrealistic, and I wouldn't have believed them if Popeshaver hadn't confirmed the next to last.|
|<guyPaulo> Here's an interesting tidbit. The average respitory rate for adults is 12-18 breaths per minute. If you assume twice that rate for sex (24-36, average is 30), then 108/30= 3 minutes 36 seconds is the average time for the average man to have sex.|

|<Mort> What would it mean Jellyloo dear?|
|<Kumiho> Funny I was sure this photo would make it on today's three pictures.|
I mean, after bottles of 40oz being passed around, it seemed natural.
Or are you forbiding any more monkey pix, Mort?
|<Jellyloo> Stinkopated: To suffer a short loss of consciousness due to bad smells?|
|<guyPaulo> Hopefully, that monkie pic will be saved for the next "Meta Day."|
|<Mort> I actually can't smell right now, damn allergies.|
I didn't even see the monkie pic when I chose the images last night. I hope it does stay for meta day.
|<mypalmike> You can smell, and you do.|
|<Starbug> Over one's lifetime, the average person will eat eight spiders while sleeping.|

|<Mort> I was rudely woken up by the sheriffs' department charity fund asking for donations. My religious beliefs forbid me to give money to anyone who wakes me up while other people are in church.|
I mean if you can't enjoy sleeping in on Sunday while others are sitting uncomfortably getting sermon'D to, then where's the fun in being atheist?
