Eamonn Holmes column: Hard way to brew up a cup of coffee.

Byline: Eamonn Holmes

INFORMATION you don't need to know but might enjoy anyway:

If you yelled for eight years, seven months and six days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat a cup of coffee (Hardly seems worth it).

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet (Oh my God!)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death (Creepy).

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off (Honey, I'm home. What the...!!)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds (What can be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Butterflies taste with their feet (Something I always wanted to know).

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmmmmmm!)

Right-handed people live on average, nine years longer than left-handed people do (If you're ambidextrous do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animal that cannot jump.

An ostrich eye is bigger than its brain (I know some people like that.)

Starfish have no brains (I know some people like that too)

Polar bears are left-handed (Who knew? Who cares?!)

CAPTION(S):

JUMBO: Can't jump; PRAYING: For no sex
