Top Ten Weirdest Facts About Humans

Hello everyone, today I decided to share with the-top-tens users a list of the 10 weirdest facts that I've discovered about humans via my website, WeirdPoll.

The Top Ten

1 If the police knew everything, almost half of the people would be in jail now.

Also here the number could be higher. I saw some people discussing this on forums, claiming that this question can be a trick from FBI.

This is kinda creepy, but hard to dispute - kempokid

And you think that the police doesn't do anything wrong? They would be in jail too.

We all wish the police knew everything, then we would literally have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Yeah... Like they new the time that you stole or shoplifted. Hello big bail and jail time - SoldierOfFortune

2 1 out of 4 kids have masturbated in school.

That's gross...I know someone who admits to masturbating and I heard him muttering to himself during class and reaching...down there. Bleh, it gives me the shivers just thinking about it. - RedTheGremlin

I believe that if the question was asked only for boys, the number would be even higher. Can you imagine that 1 out of 4 kids from your class (including girls!) have masturbated in school? I hope you find that weird.

Even in 6th grade?

People in school have done it or people have done it in the actual school building? - Cheese567

3 99% of people can't lick their elbows (90% of people who read this will try!)

I'm one of the 10% that didn't try this when I read it. Guess I'm endangered.

I've tried this before, and I know I can't. - Minecraftcrazy530's EASY guys I'll tell you a tip. But some ice cream, name it elbow, then lick it. Easy. - AlphaQ

Some people can actually lick their elbows?

4 3 out of 4 of your friends from the other gender fantasize about having sex with you.

I somewhat doubt this is true of me.

Well this is a bit awkward. The number here also could be higher as some people are homosexual and some don't even have friends from the other gender. We can conclude that your friends from the other gender probably want to have sex with you.

Now this fact pleases me, and interests me. - burningdagger

I just hope most of it is involuntary. - PositronWildhawk

5 A person once "hiccuped" for 68 years

What? Wait, hiccuped for 68 years STRAIGHT? I can't believe that and nothing you say will make me believe that. If someone hiccuped for 68 years, then how did the person sleep?

Man, I would feel sorry for that person. - cosmo

What? Really?

He must've lived a bad life. - JaysTop10List

6 93% of people don't find the "duck face" expression attractive.

Duck faces look ridiculous

This didn't surprise me at all. I knew no one finds it attractive. But I've created this poll anyway, maybe it can prove girls that it's not really attractive.

What should have been the weird fact is that "7% of people find the duck face expression attractive." Id vote for that, because holy crap, someone finds it attractive?

This is a very obvious fact.

7 Almost half of the people love their mother more than they love their father, sister, brother, or God.

I love my dog

Why do people love god more than their own mother or father? "God" didn't carry you for mine months than suffer labour to get you into this world!

Also, father had the lowest votes, even less than brothers/sisters (though not all people have brothers or sisters).

I love my sister the most.

8 A single sperm cell contains 37.5 MB of DNA information. that means an ejaculation yields about 15,875 GB of data-the equivalent of 62 Macbook pros

Seriously?!?! So I become dumber?! When I ejaculate?!?! - JohnPierre846

I don't even understand this... - Powerfulgirl10

Ok, since my sperm is smart, it's time to masturbate and make my Sperm do my Meth homework. - AlphaQ

9 1 out of 8 people have worked at McDonald's in their life

In other words, 1 in 8 people concoct putrid cheeseburgers that mean that they have to be disinfected and quarantined. - PositronWildhawk

Is this really true?!

Mcdonalds doesn't really pay that good.

Doesn't surprise me. Even my fifth grade science teacher did. - PianoQueen

10 A hot drink can sometimes cool you down faster than a cold drink

Its true. I drank I hot and cold drink but the hot one made me cold

TEA for best example

The Contenders

11 A sneeze travels 100 miles (161 km) an hour

Faster than the Airplane! - JohnPierre846

Never hold sneezes, kids. - Ohno

Yes u are truly right. It can travel more than 100 miles. So weird fact

12 Most people think they are good.

Well people do but they aren't even close there is no perfect or good

Thinking you're good doesn't make you arrogant. It makes you confident. But if you think you're perfect and put it on everyone's face, then you sure are arrogant. - Ohno

Is there such thing as good people?

I think I'm good. If you think you're good that's not egotistical or narcissistic. That's when you think you're BETTER than others. Period. - AlphaQ

13 A man was struck by lightning 7 times and lived!

Well, he was probably extremely, badly injured. - funnyuser

What's more sadder is that he committed suicide

That is quite shocking

Dang. The biggest amount I've seen was two times. - Powerfulgirl10

14 Most people prefer the death of 5000 other people to stay alive.

I've put those two together for a reason. Most of us believe we are good, however, when it comes to our lives, we prefer the death of 5000 others.

Obviously - styLIShT

Sometimes, I don't like believing in the cruelty of our primitive instincts, but its true. We were built to survive. I want to believe I wouldn't though... - keycha1n

It depends on the people. The world would be better off without some people, but if it was some people that are innocent or I care about, I would give up my own life.

As for animals, I'd rather die no matter what.

15 Most people would rather be rich, than good looking.

I might actually rather be good looking

Another poll showing how important money has become to us. So if you are rich and ugly, you can use this to tease your beautiful but poor friends.

My friend gave a different friend a test have 1000000 dollars or be prettiest girl ever but marry class idiot with no chance of divorce. She chose the second one but I said. 10000000 dollars cause I could have plastic surgery, be prettiest and not have to marry him! - AnonymousChick

I don't know. If you were rich, you would spend money on beauty. If you were beautiful, you would POSSIBLY become a model or a celebrity involving beauty and become rich. - Ohno

16 All men think they have a big penis

I don't think I do.

I just googled my penis size to find whether it's average or not and Google wants my location (hah) - styLIShT

I don't care what my penis size is. As long as I have it, I'm satisfied. Whenever someone tells me I have a small penis, I ask him how he knows how big it is, just to embarass him.

Actually I think I'm pretty average

17 A 2009 study found that when men interact with an attractive woman, they may become "cognitively impaired"

Further studies found that the mere thought of talking to a pretty girl increases a man's likelihood of saying something really, really stupid. This is fact.

18 Most people are socially awkward.

If you are also socially awkward, you may see other people as socially awesome. But in fact, most of the people are socially awkward. Ok, this is awkward.

I am.


Just like most of my family. - funnyuser

19 Most people won't pay $500 to save a kid in Africa.

Another one related to the goodness of people. I understand that some people may not have 500$, but if you have an internet connection, and the time to surf WeirdPoll, you probably have 500$. I'm not saying that if you don't do that you are a bad person. I believe in human's good nature, but this is a bit weird.

That's horrible! I would say more but this is the Internet! I would pay 100,000,000,000 to save a kid in Africa, of course I don't have that money, but 500 isn't that much, and what of that was you, or your child

I'm currently too poor though but I would like to help such people

The real question is would you rather spend $500 to save a kid in Africa or to save the rhinoceros from extinction? I'm not going to answer this question, though because everyone would judge me...

20 You can get a sunburn on your eyes

Maybe by keeping your eyes wide open in the sun for too long. - funnyuser

It's a creepy thought.

Aw, my room is purple :3 - cosmo

What the - Doggus

27 You can't move your body when you're dreaming

Some people do (unnamed sleep disorder) and they have to sleep in zipped up, tied down sleeping bags to avoid doing anything harmful to themselves or others. One man jumped out of a hotel windows to escape a guided missile in his his dream and had to get 33 stitches! But for most of us, our brain stems block out the messages from the motor cortex, making us paralyzed except for our eyes. Hence "Rapid Eye Movement". - keycha1n

I roll off my bed in sleep

Not true! Sleepwalking happens only when you're dreaming.

If people miss the ability for their brain to stop acting dreams out, sleep walk can happen - Doggus

I move all night and I dream everyday

35 Chewing gum can make your heart beat faster

As I'm reading this I'm chewing gum right now. - PianoQueen

36 Laughter is so contagious that you're more likely to laugh at a show if it has a laugh track

So this is why shows have the laugh track! Because if people cannot place real humour in the shows, they use laughter to cause laughter. I am looking at you Disney Channel (except for Gravity Falls). - Skullkid755

I'm so glad my favorite show doesn't have a laugh track, as I'd rather laugh if it's actually funny, and also because laugh tracks ruin the show. - Blight

Oh so that's why they add massive amounts of laugh tracks in sitcoms - Ohno

I laughed at this - RecklessGreed

37 All of the blood in your body travels through your heart once a minute

Uh I think it is two or you are a genius

Hooray Calcium Phosphate - styLIShT

40 if humans had the metabolism of a hummingbird, we would need to eat about 400 cheeseburgers a day

And I thought I had fast metabolism! Isn't that quite a disadvantage in the wild? Or is it the exercise regimen of flapping our arms like madmen just to stay in the air? - keycha1n

All burgers (minus the black bean and veggie burger) are DISGUSTING. - Anonymousxcxc

How awesome would that be?

How about a fat guy

Id hate that because I don't like cheese...

45 People can be allergic to the cold

I am allergic. When it gets cold and I step into a warm room, I get rashes all over my skin.

That may be the allergy to water - Doggus

Wait, like what makes the person so? Do they sneeze, or any other symtoms? - Emberflight_of_StormClan
