Also, "umph" does not rhyme with "onth".

#57 All urine has a bright UV color. It is a property used by some predators to track their prey.

#59 Vitamins have no positive effects when taken in the form of a pill / tablet. But they can increase the risk of a variety of diseases.

#60 Cats can make over 100 different kinds of sounds, but dogs can only make about 10. No wonder there is a barking cat on youtube!

#62 There is a species of hummingbird that is about the size of your thumb.

#63 Muhammed is the most common name in the world.

"3. Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least 6 feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush. "

I have been aware of this for many many years now. I usually put the lid down and then flush to avoid so much... ummm fecal matter and other dirty water particles... flying into the air and getting all over things.

On this same note, I want to puke when i see people take food into public restrooms. Ew ew ew ew ew ew....
