Within 5 minutes of waking, half of your dream is forgotten.

Believe it or not, your body is virtually paralyzed during your sleep – most likely to prevent your body from acting out aspects of your dreams.

When you are snoring, you are not dreaming.

Most spiders are skittish creatures, and really do not like to bother people. If a spider is on you, it probably just wants off you as much as you want it off. A flick is probably better than a squash.

There are no words in the dictionary that rhyme with orange,
purple and silver.

Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space
because passing wind in a spacesuit damages them.

By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot
sink into quicksand.

I agree. According to Google, there are 365,242 days in 1000 years. The official youtube blog states that, as of January 23, 2012, an hour of video is uploaded every second. So that means there are 86,400 hours of video uploaded every day, which is just under 10 years of video every day, so it would take MUCH longer than 1000 years to watch every video on Youtube, and that would be if you could stop uploads until you were done.
