1) The world record for stuffing drinking straws into your mouth at once is 459. Manoj Kumar Maharana, from India, broke the world record on 28th August 2017 for stuffing 459 drinking straws in his mouth at once! In order to break it, he had to keep them in his mouth for at least 10 seconds.
But doesn't it depend on the diameter of the straws? A soda straw can probably hold three of those thin straws served in cocktails. Seems to me that we need some standardization here!
Sure is, 1/4" or 6.4mm

1) On an average day, nearly 177,000 people in the UK will be celebrating their birthday.

2) If we take account of all birthdays in a year all over the world, which month do you think will have the maximum number of birthday celebrations? Any guesses? Well, it is August!

3) Birthday cards are extremely popular in US though. Why so? That’ because 58% of all cards that are purchased in US are actually birthday cards!

4) If you think you are a spoiled brat and you spend enormous amounts of money on your birthday celebrations, think again! You can’t compete with Sultan of Brunei. The party he threw on his 50th birthday had cost him $27.2 million (we are speaking of US Dollars).

5) So, where and how did he spend so much money. Well, we can’t give you penny-to-penny details but yes, he organized for 3 concerts, all of which featured Michael Jackson. Those three concerts collectively cost him $16 million. Rest of the money was spent for other stuff of course.

Isn't he a real tough man :-&

The thai man look likes like he is only a young teenager (and only 4 ft 6 inches tall)

Give the White Man !!! 3 months in a Thai jail (while he awaits his trial) and a new Boyfriend each night. He might just think twice, next time.

Well that aint what you said is it?

If it was because 58% of all "Birthday cards" that are purchased in US are actually birthday cards ....... I would have expected it to be a tad closer to 100%

Really, the only people who care are the Card Manufacturers

Your concern may have been valid but your presentation certainly (I wont say sucks) has something left to be desired

From Google - The first British telephone directory was published on 15 January 1880 by The Telephone Company. It contained 248 names and addresses of individuals and businesses in London; telephone numbers were not used at the time as subscribers were asked for by name at the exchange.

1) Norway has won more winter Olympics than any other country in the world.

2) Norway has a butter crisis since 2011. The cost of 250 gms of butter in the country is around $50.

3) Since World War II, only 10 police officers have been killed in Norway. This statistic indicates how safe the country is. And on the other hand, not a single person has been killed by the Norwegian police since 2006. In 2007, Norwegian police fired no shots whatsoever.

4) 80,000 umbrellas are expected to be lost annually in the London tube.

5) In Costa Rica, a soda is a small, informal restaurant that serves chicken, beans, rice, and salad for US$2 or $3 a plate. (And is a Wonderful meal from personal experience)

1) The most expensive watermelon ever sold was a Densuke, auctioned in 2008 for a staggering Y650,000 or $6300 it was one of the first harvested in Hokkaido. This Japanese fruit is pure black and averages a price of $250 per fruit! In 2014 Japan’s obsession with auctioning this fruit for extortionate prices continued with one specimen from Toma, Hakkaido being sold for Y350,000 or $3000.

2) Watermelons always seem to be the go-to-fruit for any chopping, smashing, slashing or squeezing demos and there are an array of world records for doing just that. In 2014, Olga Liashchuk crushed 3 watermelons with her bare thighs in 14.65 seconds and in 2006 Leonardo D’Andrea smashed 10 watermelons with his head in 16 seconds, both securing Guinness World Records for their efforts.

3) Dutch people were the ones who first cultivated the orange carrot that we know today. They did that in honor of Dutch Royal Family called the House of Orange.

4) Of all known vegetables except for beet, carrots are known to have highest naturally occurring sugar content. So, beet take number 1 position while carrots take second position in terms of sweet vegetables. No wonder carrots make a wonderful snack even when eaten raw.

5) 8.61 kilograms – that’s the weight of the heaviest carrot every produced in world. It was back in 1998.

1) Facts about highways: Australia’s Highway 1, which is 14,500 kilometers and runs across mainland capitals of the continent. Except for the Australian capital territory, Highway 1 connects all the states. It was created as part of the National Route Numbering system, adopted in 1955. Additionally, Highway 1 has multiple tributary highways. “Highway one to hell” set a new record on the 18th June 2017 for a complete drive around Australia.

2) Facts about highways: China comprises of the world’s largest network of expressways or highways. In 2015, 11,050 kilometers (6,870 mi) of the expressway was built. Therefore, making the total length to be equal to 123,000 kilometers. The total cost of the national expressway network is approximately 2 trillion yuan, which is nearly 300 billion US Dollars.

3) How much does rain weigh?

An inch of rain can measure around 226,000 lbs in an acre of land. In every minute, one billion tons of rain falls on the earth.

4)The wettest day in Britain:
This was on December 5 2015 when Honister Pass in Cumbria was soaked by 341.4mm of rain in a day during Storm Desmond, which brought extensive heavy rain and strong gales to parts of northern England and Scotland.

5) In the US, it’s legal to brew your own beer at home in all 50 states (provided it is for personal use), but distilling one’s own liquor is strictly against the law. There are a variety of laws distillers might violate, including possession of moonshine, possession of illegal alcohol containers (those would be your mason jars or gallon jugs), concealing beverages, and conspiracy to violate beverage laws. However, in the vein of Al Capone, most moonshiners are actually charged with tax evasion or money laundering.
The reason is simple. The government might be mildly concerned with the health of people consuming bootleg liquor, but they are far more concerned with their checkbook. Spirits are taxed heavily. In some states, these taxes are in excess of $20 per gallon and a huge government monkey-maker. According to The Economist, the state of Virginia alone loses $20 million in annual revenue.
