I heard on TV last night that a southern right whale's testicles weigh ----- wait for it ----- 500 kilos each, i.e. 1 tonne altogether. Isn't that amazing/frightening?!

Don't you just love odd facts like that?

BTW the barnacle has, proportionately for it's body size, the biggest penis in the animal kingdom, equivalent to a human having one about 18 feet long

Nice to know all that education wasn't wasted Steve, good to see the taxpayers getting some value for money

Whats puzzling me is why Steve would have such a fact so ready to mind.  And, I'm sure he's mentioned this before - a couple of times.

I am Captain Trivia! Yes I'm sure I've mentioned it before but it doesn't get any less amazing thru repetition, sorry Tim, I'll dig out some new "that's amazing..." bits of trivia to entertain you, maybe even something cheese related  


At least I'm still involved in scientific work, one of my buddies from my undergrad days was top of the class, went on to do a PhD in behavioural ecology, and then went to work as an accountant for PWC ! What a waste of a fine scientific mind...

ok Steve here's a challenge - find a piece of Trivia linking Cheese and Barnacles - I don't know of any but I'm sure it can be done.  And if it can be done then you are most def the man to do it.  I have every faith in you.  And no, Cheesy Barnacles won't count (Charnicles?).

As for working for PWC, well I'm not sure whats worse, that or becoming an accountant.  Acutally, here is a nightmare scenario for you - A PWC acountant with a strong DIR bent!  :shudder:

<font color='#000080'>Don't blue whales use about 40 gallons of semen in one go? Heard that one on radio one of all places.

It might be 400 gallons, I wasn't paying a lot of attention, and they were the options. 40 or 400.

My mate "Mad Dave," when he was a medical student, told me that there was some sort of hernia where your guts went down into your scrotum, give you nadgers the size of footballs. Maybe that's what that fella up there's got

Laters,
