Errr-What was that again?

I received the following message as an email. So would you. I however noticed a few somethings here and there...


1 If you are right handed, you will tend to chew your food on your right side. If you are left handed, you will tend to chew your food on your left side. (How do you know that it is not the other way around? If you chew your food on the left side you are left handed...)
**********
2 If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water. For when a human body is dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off. (Typical human anatomy. Nothing works the way you want it to)
**********
3 Your tongue is germ free only if it is pink. If it is white there is a thin film of bacteria on it. (What about black???)
**********
4 The Mercedes-Benz motto is 'Das Beste oder Nichts' meaning 'the best or nothing'. (And the Hindustan Ambassador motto means 'Old-wives' car that doesn't suit anyone except old wives')
**********
5 The Titanic was the first ship to use the SOS signal. (No wonder no one nearby recognized it!!!)
**********
6 The pupil of the eye expands as much as 45 percent when a person looks at something pleasing. (Ever since I joined college, it has been shut tight)
**********
7 The average person who stops smoking requires one hour less sleep a night. (I dont smoke, yet I sleep more than twelve hours if let to. Imagine how many I would sleep if only I smoked!!!)
**********
8 Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system. Six-year-olds laugh an average of 300 times a day. Adults only laugh 15 to 100 times a day. (I dont think I have laughed more than once since I joined college!)
**********
9 Dalmatians are born without spots. (Maybe its only we humans who see the spots.)
**********
10 Bats always turn left when exiting a cave. (Even a bat can obey traffic rules and keep to the left... but you cant!)
**********
11 Men's shirts have the buttons on the right, but women's shirts have the buttons on the left. (So that it is easy for the men to undo them?)
**********
12 The reason honey is so easy to digest is that it's already been digested by a bee. (Can you imagine people calling their girlfriends "Digested waste excreted by a bee?")
**********
13 Every time you sneeze some of your brain cells die (Aaaah...Aaaah...Tishooooo...Oh My God!)
**********
14 When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red (My Class Advisor last semester...)
**********
15 The first Harley Davidson motorcycle was built in 1903, and used a tomato can for a carburetor (Reports say that it could run faster than a current day TVS-Excel)
**********
16 Google is actually the common name for a number with a million zeros (The average number of hits you get for any search term!!!)
**********
17 Switching letters is called spoonerism. For example, saying jag of Flapan, instead of flag of Japan. (The First World war broke out when ArchDuke Francis Ferdinand accidentally said "Let's have the Hags Flung out" whan he actually meant "Let's have Flags Hung out")
**********
18 It cost 7 million dollars to build the Titanic and 200 million to make a film about it. (A hundred years from now, they'll be making a movie on the movie itself at a budget of 50 billion)
**********
19 There are 1,792 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower (and another 1792 to get back to firm ground!)
**********
20 Human hair and fingernails continue to grow after death. (Dunno how many graves they dug up to establish this)
**********
21 The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets (Guess what people preferred to call the chief guest at our sports day?)
**********
22 Most soccer players run 7 miles in a game. (I dont think I have run that much in my life)
**********
23 Every day 200 million couples make love, 400,000 babies are born, and 140,000 people die. (Beg your pardon?)
**********
24 In most watch advertisements the time displayed on the watch is 10:10 because then the arms frame the brand of the watch (and make it look like it is smiling).(mocking more like...You cant dream of owning me Nyah-Nyah-Nyah-Nyah-Nyah)
**********
25 Colgate faced big obstacle marketing toothpaste in Spanish speaking countries. Colgate translates into the command "go hang yourself." (quite a few of my teeth have hanged themselves too, since I started using colgate)
**********
26 Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair. (Ever notice my rich, beautiful lusturous hair?)
**********
27 Women blink nearly twice as much as men. (That's because half the time, men are winking one of their eyes at women who in turn blink both eyes back in incomprehension.)
**********
28 German Shepherds bite humans more than any other breed of dog. (I thought German Shepards were intelligent...)
**********
29 Large kangaroos cover more than 30 feet with each jump. (Jump half that distance at the next Olympics and they will hang a gold coin tied with a ribbon around your neck)
**********
30 Whip makes a cracking sound because its tip moves faster than the speed of sound. (So, the next time you are getting whip-lashed, pause to marvel at the intrigues of science)
**********
31 Two animal rights protesters were protesting at the cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn. Suddenly the pigs, all two thousand of them, escaped through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two hapless protesters to death. (Pigs will be pigs)
