Yank60 - a lot of that's wrong!

Pygmy chimps also have sex for pleaure
you CAN sometimes fold paper more than 7 times (try a full sheet of newsprint)

The strongest muscle in the body is the Gluteus Maximus (the buttock) - the tongue is in fact the only muscle group (there's 4 muscles there) which is attached only at one end.

I don't think that Adolf Hitler's mother /could/ have considered abortion & been talked out of it - I'm not sure it was legal in Austria in the 1870s

And duck quacks /do/ echo - Mythbusters tested it!

Right not positive about this but here we go...

Statues involving men on horseback are made with the following rules in mind. If the subject died in battle the horse has one leg up, if he died in the battle being commemorated by the statue then the horse has two legs up, if he died of natural causes the horse has all four legs on the ground.

Stick that one in your pipe and smoke it!

My mate at school, a certain Nick Martindale, was indeed able to pleasure himself. He proved it to us (whilst wearing clothes i should add) - mightily impressive, so yes i can confirm it can be done.

Suprised we ever saw him at school really.
