A “Few” Things That Annoy Me

I don’t think I’ve ever done a post like this, or even similar to this. Maybe in forms of a specific situation that hurt me or annoyed me at the time, but never a list of a “few” specific details about everyday life or in general, what annoys me. I may split this into a few posts and long ones I might add.
I may add that I might swear a time or two in this post, because it’s sometimes the best way to get your point across. If you don’t mind that, let’s start;

❄ When people treat their pets badly in front of me. That sets my heart on fire and I want to bash their face in, you do not deserve that wonderful animal.

❄ When I buy snacks or candy for myself and bring it home, and for instance someone’s at home, we have a guest or my little sister who’s 5, asks me if I’ll eat it right now and I reply No, I’ll save it for later, don’t open it now, and I leave the house for even an hour and I come back to an empty bag of crisps. I said I’ll eat it later, I don’t mind sharing a little bit, but no one told you to eat my snacks while I was away.

 

❄ Smokers who decide they want to light up a cigarette in the middle of strolling down the street. If I am obliged to walk past you, with you or even behind you, I don’t want to be obliged to have your smoke in my face from every angle I walk by, because it goes right, left, straight and backwards. Have some decency.

❄ When people think they know everything but know very very little, or nothing at all. And they’re so sure of themselves when they talk about whatever it is, they get fired up and almost angry at you, but you fucking know they don’t know what they’re talking about, especially if you know the truth. What the fuck are you doing? Who are you showing off for?

When good friends keep things from me. This might be a little personal irritation button, but I don’t like when I know that someone finds me a good, close friend who they have trust in, or even worse my best friend, and they hide things from me in front of me.
Be it a text from your boyfriend, another friend, your mother messaged you, a picture with your boyfriend on your phone, your fucking phone password or pin, and they’re like “Nope” and irritatingly smile like it’s supposed to be amusing?

I understand that everyone is different and many couples have their own sets of privacy, but I just don’t understand the literal hiding. I come and sit next to you and you turn sideways so I don’t see who you’re texting?
Remind me to never be intentionally interested again, in anything you do.

❄ In public transport and outside it, when people don’t have the courtesy to apologize for pushing you, bumping into you or stepping onto the back of your foot while they were walking. What is that? For me, it’s a momental reaction be say So sorry, Sorry mam, Sorry sir. Rude.

❄ When people generalize things. All vegans, all vegetarians, all males, all females, all Christians, all atheists, all ex’s, all boyfriends. No.
Not all men are the same in relationships, you keep picking the same type of guy over and over. Something new? He’s a faggot, too poor, too neat, too stylish, gay, too goth, too sensitive, too this, too that. Shut the fuck up.

❄ People who constantly post facebook statuses like: “Feeling depressed”, I’m so upset, This has been the worst day of my life, and a bunch of sad emoji’s and someone else comments, What’s up, what happened, tell me all about it. And the replies are “I’ll inbox you”, or “I don’t want to talk about it” or “I don’t want to bother anyone with my problems”.
Not that I truly cared what you’re upset about,but now that you have gone out of your way to purposely make it so that no one knows publicly, now I either want to know because now it’s a mystery, or it annoys me ’cause you’re craving attention, which is probably the case.

❄ When people aren’t paying attention at all to what I am saying and I am having a conversation with them. They look through me or they look the other way and give out sighs or “Mhm”, “Yeah yeah”, or just nod their head. Excuse me, but I am talking. Tell me if you want me to stop.

❄ When people pretend to be interested in your life and why you are upset or down and ask of you to share it with them, and you do, thinking you’ll talk about it and someone replies with “Oh, that’s too bad”, “Oh, I feel sorry for you”, “Oh, well it’ll get better, I’m off now!” or any irrelevant comment like they just read about you on the news and scrolled down.
Are you fucking kidding me? Why did you ask me, to fill in the five minutes you had nothing to do before you went to do it?
I didn’t even expect you’d care when we started talking, now when you’ve asked me you gave me false hope you actually did care and wanted to listen. You just made me feel worse.

❄ On that note, It extremely extremely annoys me when you share your pain or problem with a person, the first response is anything similar too:
Oh, I know that feeling, I’ve been through worse, let me tell you what I’ve been through. And the conversation suddenly becomes about them.
OR, if they’re REALLY an asshole, they say anything similar too: Don’t dramatize, you need to chill, I’ve been through worse, and I got out of it, that’s nothing, how can you care about that, my problem was a lot worse and I didn’t react like that?

No? How VERY fortunate for you.
Because you went through worse, it means that my problem and the pain it caused me is any less painful than your problem? Fucking no. Get out of here.

Wow, that’s about the length I thought it would be. Cheers if you made it thus far! That was quite refreshing to share, I’m sure lot’s of you went through or go through the same things and I’m not even done. Is anyone ever really?

The Versatile Blogger Award

versatilebloggeraward

I was extremely shocked when I read that I was nominated for this, because I certainly don’t deserve any type of award right now. But thanks to the awesome Curious Queendom, I have been nominated and a huge thanks I might add, she made my day brighter.

I don’t know much of her blog, she isn’t someone I actually followed but right after I finish this post, I’ll get myself to checking out everything!

As any award, there are rules you follow and you name them first:
❄ Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog
❄Nominate at least 15 blogs of your choice, if you can.
❄ Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.
❄ Share 7 facts about yourself

Now, I won’t be able to nominate 15 bloggers, I apologize for that truly, but as Curious Queendom stated in her post regarding the award, I’m still trying to catch up to everything and everyone and get back in the game. I saw some bloggers have deleted their blogs that I would normally nominate, while I was away so I still need to scout around. I’ll leave this blog award for anyone that reads and is a “fan” of my content and wishes to state 7 facts about themselves. Just let me know if you do end up accepting it!

The 7 facts about me are:

I am not a fan of the cold. I don’t like winter and gloomy, gray weather. Every year I struggle with mood changes as soon as winter comes knocking and it makes me more sad and less positive about anything I do. I like snow, I love when snowflakes fall and turn my city into a white wonderland, but if only they were warm.

I never wear nor need foundation. Not particularly something I am proud off exactly, but I am fortunate enough not too need to wear it ever. I have amazing, clear skin, and I hardly ever ever break out. I don’t ever really wear make up at all, 85% I’m without it, but if I do, I make my eyes pop out with mascara and an eye pencil and you can hardly tell I am not wearing any coverage on my face.

I love acrylic nails. I just do. I have them done right now, have an appointment to do them again next weekend.

I am terrible at saving money. I am not frugal. As long as I have money, I would spend it. I’m sure this will change when I start earning my own money, but the good thing is people around me are good at it. I leave my money with them.

My worst fear is getting ill. Getting  deadly ill, being sick, diseases, hospitals, surgeries. Fever and cough, sure. Anything else? No.

I absolutely love the Agatha Cristie’s Poirot series, all of the episodes. I love Poirot, I love her books.

Last but not least, I’m afraid of all bugs. All, bugs. Lady bugs are not cute bugs, they’re bugs. They have pretty wings and they poop and then die. Up close they’re hairy bugs.

Thank you for reading! ❤

 

 

Accepting Yet Another Reward, Again!

Heheh, well this put a little cheer to my night. Quite a few things did actually. I’m getting better and better by the day, health wise. I’ve made a few new friends over the past days.

I’ve managed to pick myself up, dust myself off and force myself to go out, once. I did, with a good friend that brought two other people, through which I met another person. The joy’s of friendship and being social and positive. Today, I spent most of my day chatting with Djordje and getting to know him better, and mind you, it’s 4:30 in the morning. I’ve finally found out the age of one of my very favorite bloggers here on WordPress. I’m still confused about that but pleasantly surprised at the same time. And now, the lovely and exceptionally talented Britta has nominated for the Sisterhood of The World Bloggers Award!

I’ve been nominated for this award I think a couple times before but it’s such a joy and honor. I feel like I should honor that someone felt my blog, writing and I with it were worthy of any award. A big big thank you to her. She is one fantastic strong, talented lady, who I have learned a few things from.

The rules I think are very much known to everyone. In a nutshell, you need to post the award logo, thank the blogger who nominated you, answer their questions they’ve left you, and possibly leave ten questions of your own to your nominee’s, and nominate seven people.
Also, I really need to think about my nominee’s, because there aren’t many people that I haven’t already nominated before – in a few other awards as well. I don’t think I’ll be able to assemble all of them right away. I’ll answer the questions Britta has left me, I’ll come up with ten questions of my own, but I’ll need to come back and edit my nominee’s in.

  1. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? 
    – I would really love to visit Australia. It’s such a beautiful and fantastic country to live in. I don’t think I would adapt on the lifestyle there, how they are used to living, but to me, it’s nature’s blessing.
  2. What has been your greatest learning experience thus far? 
    – My learning experience. Everything I have ever learned has been learned, in mostly the easy way rounds. My past I guess. I feel like that’s such a cliche answer but it’s really true. My past is basically what formed my mind, or at least, encouraged me to learn from it and think with my head. My present and the fear of my future makes it as steal as it is now.
  3. Who/what/where do you draw your strength from? (you can answer for all three W’s or just one…it’s up to you!)
    – Who, myself. I am a very self-concious person and I don’t like anyone to see me in my moment’s of weakness. My strength draws and ooze’s out of me in times where my character demands for it to be at it’s best. If I accomplish that, I feel stronger and eventually build it even more.
    – What, from the insides of people. That sounds so freaking creepy, doesn’t it. But, someone has to be a very specific, but if found, it’s where I get my inspiration from. My motivation and my strength for whatever that I need to do. Emotionally, whatever it may be.
  4. What blog post of yours are you most proud of and why?
    – Dang, I don’t have one of these. I really really love my post “Straight up Happiness? I Think Laughter“, because it’s something I live by. Something that really defines me in the simplest of words. It was something I thought about in front of my screen, I was telling it to myself, and wrote it down. And loved it. I stand by what I said.
  5. Your philosophy towards life in a few words…what is it?
    – You were born, you’re gonna die. It’s gonna end. Depressing, I know but.
  6. What is your favorite ice cream flavor? (apologies if you do not eat dairy…I myself get ill from ice cream, but still dream about those days when I could scarf down Ben Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough without getting an upset stomach)
    – I try to cut back on dairy, aiming towards veganism. But generally, I love old plain vanilla. It’s perfect in it’s simplicity.
  7. What does your dream home look like?
    – A picture that would describe exists not, sadly. It’s not called a Dream home for nothing.
  8. What is one thing you hope to have accomplished in ten years?
    Hope to have accomplished. A one way plain ride towards America. At least that.
  9. What is your favorite book?
    Honestly, I love the Harry Potter books. I love The Hobbit, I love Lord of the Rings. I don’t know.
  10. One thing that fills you with joy…what is it?
    – Animals.

These awards take up a lot of time. Really. I need to be snappy;

  1. What would be your dream pet?
  2. If you could do only one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  3. Would you ever like to find out when you are going to die? Why or why not?
  4. What is your favorite thing about the WordPress community?
  5. Which are some bloggers that inspire you or brighten up your day?
  6. How do you feel about The Hobbit movies?
  7. Out of all the social media websites you know, which is your least favorite and why?
  8. What is one attribute you are most proud off on yourself?
  9. If you could move anywhere, where would it be?
  10. If you woke up and a genie offered you only one wish you may use selfishly, what would you wish for?

I was really quick with my questions. I think you’ll find them quite stupid but I think interesting to answer too.

Now, my nominees are:

Fiction Limbo, The Finicky Cynic, Coffee and Musings, I Prefer Deep Blues and Sea Foam Greens..

Two are very frequent guests of mine, but two favorites of mine. The finicky cynic amazes me with each post,how much we have in common, and Z’, Z is fabulous. On the other hand, the two remaining bloggers are ones I have been loving in the past few weeks. I don’t show it very often, but I’m one of those stalkers. I’ll silently stalk and poof, all of a sudden I’m there and you never knew I existed.

I love these awards. Even more so when it’s not 5am, but I wanted to do it. Now I need to hop into bed asap. Like now.

A big big thank you to Britta once more. She was the charry on top of a non-sarcastically fantastic cake today!

My Type of Guy

Hello there everyone!

I was scrolling through my Reader, catching up on WordPress news and all of my dear fellow blogger’s post’s. It seems I have missed quite a lot of drama in my absence. Or, let’s call it inconvenience – It’s a prettier word- considering a very well known blogger Opinionated Man. And as I understood a couple more very good writers. Good to know everything was sorted out. All’s well that ends well.

I thought I would kick my sadness away for a little while with another fun tag blog post, that the awesome Finicky Cynic wrote.  We all know I love answering questions. As the title states, it’s one of those really generic, superficial questions that have no real answer to them, but it’s all in the fun. I’ll try to keep my answers short and snappy.

I won’t be tagging anyone in specific. Anyone that reads and feels like doing it, by all means. I’m just sharing it around.

Let’s start!

  1. Do you need him/her to be good looking? Well, looks don’t count for everything, but I need to find him attractive.
  2. Smart? Yeah, appropriately.
  3. Preferred age? Well, erm, hehe. He can’t be younger. At my age, anything above 4 years is out of the question. That’s probably a lot as well, but, it’s a long story.
  4. Preferred height? Not too tall, not too short. I don’t care unless he’s taller than me by two heads and above. I’m not a bear-to-honey type of girl for extremely tall guys.
  5. How about sense of humor? Absolutely. No point if you can’t make me laugh or giggle.
  6. How about piercings? I don’t like them at all, but one or two discrete ones wouldn’t hurt. Would be great without.
  7. Accept you for who you are? A must.
  8. Pink hair? Erm, I guess? If he can rock it, cool.
  9. Mushy or no? With boundaries. He needs to know when it’s time to cuddle, and when to be serious.
  10. Thin or fat? Healthy.
  11. Black, Brown, Yellow or White (skin color)? Doesn’t matter, as long as it doesn’t present a problem.
  12. Long hair or short hair? Well, generally speaking, short hair. I don’t mind long hair at all if he can rock it, but I do not like bald cuts, 0 cuts and anything I can’t grab onto on his head. That’s just scary to me. He needs grown HAIR.
  13. Plastic or metal? I’m sorry?
  14. Smells good? Well, don’t stink.
  15. Smoker? Not acceptable.
  16. Drinker? No. A drinker, and someone who takes sips or approximately one glass at a festive get together is two different worlds.
  17. Girl/Boy-next-door-type? Well great. Makes a few things a lot easier.
  18. Muscular? Not obsessed with having a sick pack, or any pack actually. I hate over-the-top buff and muscular guys. They do not look attractive to me. If he wants to stay in shape, that’s great. No Arnold Schwarzenegger copy-cats.
  19. Plays piano? Sure, teach me?
  20. Plays bass and/or acoustic guitar? Sexy.
  21. Plays violin? Romantic.
  22. Sings very well? Sing to me while you play anything?
  23. Vain? No.
  24. With glasses? Hehe, no problem. We’ll be eight-eyed.
  25. With braces? Well, that can be cute, but it’s not a preference or anything.
  26. Shy type? That’s so cute. I’ll cut through him whatever the case.
  27. Rebel or good guy? Rebel is a wide concept. Usually it’s so,

    you’re not fooling anybody. Especially me. That’s either such a show-off to me, or just plain jerkiness.
    So good guy, good guy. I’ll make him bad when necessary. 😉
  28. Active or passive? Both.
  29. Tight or bomb? What does this mean?
  30. Singer or dancer? Both are great. If he can dance, oooh man. If he can’t, ooooh man, I’m gonna have fun.
  31. Stunner? Nope. That exhausts me and after awhile, it’s tiring and annoying.
  32. Hip hop? Couldn’t hurt.
  33. Earrings? Not a fan, but discrete earrings? Why not. If that’s his thing.
  34. Mr./Mrs. Count my ex boy/girlfriends-until-you-drop? There’s no need for that man. A turn off for sure.
  35. Dimples? I don’t care honestly. Cutesy though.
  36. Mr./Mrs. Love Letter? Not too frequently, but I adore letters.
  37. Playful? Yes! Appropriately of course, but he needs to know when to let go and play.
  38. Flirt? Only with me.
  39. Poem writer? Not my kind of thing, but I’d cheer him on.
  40. Serious? Could be referred to #9, only the opposite. No one likes a party-popper.
  41. Campus-crush? Well I guess.
  42. Religion? I don’t care, as long as it doesn’t represent a problem for us individually. It would help if we were on the same page, discussion wise.
  43. Someone who likes to tease people? In fun ways.
  44. Computer games geek or Internet freak? Both with boundaries. Everyone has hobbies, but there are priorities.
  45. Speaks 20 languages? Master… *bows* How?
  46. Good kisser? Yes.
  47. Loves children? I guess, for the long run.
  48. Loves me? Well, yeah.
  49. Cute? A must.
    Hot and sexy don’t appeal to me as when I find somebody initially CUTE.

Well, that was long and fun. I tried to be on point with my answers, but bear it with me. I hope you guys liked it. I have a few more things in store to share, very soon. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, because you know, it is Monday tomorrow.

List of All Well Known Food Products Across The World I Have Never Tried

I just realized I did a similar blog post two months ago, mentioning a few of the following things but it wasn’t as detailed. It was circling around a few things and what my country Should have. But the following is what I’ve never tried, and what is among those things, I maaaay repaet myself.


Now,you must be thinking. Why would anyone make this into a list? There’s gotta be a million and one things every person on earth hasn’t tried. But some of these will blow your mind, because they’re FREQUENT and almost everywhere, except here. Your mind will take a swirl.

Now, we’re behind Americans by at least fifty years, so in some matters it is understandable. But still not fair. You know. We still want and should have all of the foody goodness some of your guys might get. Of course, not all candy comes from America but I think plenty of these are from there. Or at least, I see Americans eating them the most. Almost all of the candy that is sold here is either from Germany or, I don’t even know but we don’t get variety. At all. We do have some tasty things but those tasty things have been around since my mom was a kid man. Import something dude. Make the stores.

Anyway. back to the topic. As stated, we are behind Americans by at least fifty years, which would explain why we got Oreos for the first time (now) two years ago. I know. This right?

They appeared in late 2013, but this year is still very fresh. And after so much time, we only have the regular kind and the double stuffed kind.

So, I tried making a list of all the things off the top of my head, and mind you there’s a lot, that I hear being talked about all the time and seen being eaten. Let’s dive into it.

  • Taco’s. I think a single store didn’t exist that would make even something similar till about awhile ago, and it’s still not done. They’re in the process of making it, in 2015 – In Serbia.
  • Sushi. Now, this definitely exists, I just thought it was interesting how I never tried it. I think it’s because of the potential gagging that might occur, ’cause I have a very sensitive reflex to flappy, fleshy, jiggly, mushy, wet things.
  • Chinese food. Same situation as sushi. Trying it tomorrow though for the first time. I hear things get real spicy.
  • Waffles. I think you can make them, sure. You can try with a waffle maker of some sorts but here it’s not a thing and no one bother’s buying. And to be honest, it looks like plastic. Doesn’t it?
  • Pancakes. Now I want to try this. Apparently we have this.
    Now let me demonstrate. I am confused.

    These are pancakes all over the world;
       <– & –> what we have here is this  
    Those two are not the same freaking thing. Or they may be. One is just cooked longer and thicker but they can’t be called the same. We call ours Palacinke, and people confuse that with Pancakes. What we have are crapes.
    Open three different tabs. Write Pancakes, write Palacinke, write crapes. That’s all there is too it.
    I want to try PANCAKES.

  • American/foreign cereal. We do not have these. We maybe have some crappy shit like chocolate balls with some cute bear on it, but most of it is just straight up corn flakes. Or those ”protein”, ”fitness” jazz.
    No Lucky Charms, no Raisin Bran, Froot Loops, Cheerios, Reese’s Puffs, Honey Bunches of Oats, Captain Crunch, nothin’.
    I mean I don’t even like or eat cereal, but I wouldn’t mind having it on display, just so I know I can try it. You know.
  • Marshmallows. We have none.
    Again, they’re mushy and I don’t think I’d like them, but just give them to me. I’ll be satisfied with looking at them.
  • Pop tarts. Non existent. What the heck even is that? A biscuit with a flavorful cream on top?

Man, I feel left out.

Now, the fast food restaurants. Well. not much to expect. The biggest fast food restaurant here is McDonald’s obviously. Not that fast food restaurants are even that important, nor do I consume all that much food from them, but it wouldn’t hurt if we also had Wendy’s, Burger King, In & Out and all types of fast food restaurants over the world.

I tried Mango for the first time a few months ago. Never tried avocado due to not seeing it being sold till a few weeks ago.

Now the candy/cookie factory; 

  • Oreos. As mentioned. No other flavors.
  • Butterfinger candy bar. Non existent.
  • Reese’s peanut butter cups. Non existent.
  • Warheads. I love sour stuff. We have sour candies here, but we don’t have warheads.
  • Skittles. We only have the regular kind and there is about, 65 different types of Skittles?
  • M&M’s. Now, okay. We have the chocolate and peanut butter ones. Nothing else.
  • Razzles. They just look fun and they’re candy, but non existent.
  • Nerds. Non existent. But so popular!
  • Fun dip. Non existent.
  • Hershey anything. Non existent.
  • Macarons. I’ve SEEN these in the mall but I believe, 3 macarons is (this is going to sound so pathetic) 3 dollars, converted from the Serbian Dinar. That’s over 300 dinara here and that is INSANE for a few candies. A burger and a 2l coke costs that much. Literally.
  • Crunchie. Okay, I gave up on VIOLET CRUMBLE. But they’re similar right? At least those, goddamn it. Non existent.

And a few drinks;

  • MTN Dew.
  • Dr Pepper.
  • Jolly Rancher.
  • Monster (The energy drink).

I’ve tried SevenUp… It’s Sprite.

So anyway, there you guys go…

I feel like, I’m missing out. It’s not that big of a deal, but it is.
Just the fact that I don’t have it, makes me want to have it even more, even though I would be completely neutral for most of these.

You have at least 8 of these things, so yey me. Ship me some, I’ll pay.

Animal Facts You May Not Know #2

As a notorious, humongous cat lover, obviously I have kept track more so than for other’s, but you just may know these. You still won’t be able to say they’re not fabulous facts! Scroll over #19 if you’re not a cat fan.

  1. Your cat recognizes your voice but just acts too cool to care (Pft, because she is).
  2. Cats are often lactose intolerant so you shouldn’t really give them milk.
  3. Cats make more than 100 sounds whereas dogs make around 10.
  4. Cats and humans have nearly identical sections of the brain that controls emotion.
  5. Cats have a longer-term memory than dogs, especially when they learn by actually doing rather than simply seeing.
  6. It was illegal to slay cats in ancient Egypt.
  7. In the 15th century, Pope Innocent VIII began ordering the killing of cats, pronouncing them demonic. Sick twisted bastard. A human orders death of innocent animals, a Pope no less and we’re superior? Ugh! 
  8. Isaac Newton is credited with inventing the cat door. I actually learned this in Physics class… 
  9. When cats leave their poop uncovered, it is a sign of aggression to let you know they don’t fear you. Which isn’t so much a bad thing. She shouldn’t fear me. 
  10. Cats can change their meow to manipulate a human. They often imitate a human baby when they need food, for example. Yeeeah, lol. 
  11. Hearing is the strongest of cat’s senses: They can hear sounds as high as 64 kHz — compared with humans, who can hear only as high as 20 kHz.
  12. A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint. This also applies for dogs I believe. Most likely for every animal. 
  13. A cat rubs against people to mark its territory.
  14. Only 11.5% of people consider themselves “cat people.”
  15. ^^ Cat people are also 11% more likely to be introverted. This applies to me but I don’t see the connection between the two… 
  16. Only 24% of cats who enter animal shelters are adopted. And this is sad… Bring them to me dammit! 
  17. Cats are really cool.
  18. Also very soft.
  19. During the Middle Ages, cats were associated with withcraft, and on St. John’s Day, people all over Europe would stuff them into sacks and toss the cats into bonfires…. They should have had their skin peeled off. 
  20. There are around 9,865 species of birds alive today.
  21. There are more than 465 different types of sharks in the world.
  22. Whale sharks are the world’s biggest fish.

  23. Sharks predate the dinosaurs by 200 million years.
  24. Scorpions can hold their breath up to six days.
  25. The goblin shark (monsterous creature) has only been seen around 50 times.
    {inserts disturbing gif here}
  26. A newborn Panda weights as much as a cup of tea. What?!
  27. Gorillas can catch human colds and other illness’s.
  28. The only dog that doesn’t have a pink toe is the chow.
  29. A tarantula spider can survive over two years without food. Oh great, it can starve itself and nothing happens. 
  30. A single elephant tooth can weigh up to 8 or 9 pounds. I’ve read differently in two different places. 
  31. Last but not least, there is a butterfly in Africa with enough poison in it’s body to kill six cats. Don’t you dare come near my babies!

Hope you guys enjoyed!

Animal Facts You May Not Know… #1

One of my favorite subjects in the entire world. Hours and hours of ”research” – late nights on various sites and wikipedia’s – on animals. All kinds of animals, all types of facts… I’m gonna write multiple posts on this. Tell me if you knew most or any of these.

  1. Cats are the most popular pets in the United states. Over 88 million pet cats. (What better way to start it huh)
  2. Turtles can breath through their butts.
  3. A group of cats is called a clowder.
  4. Cats sleep 70% of their life.
  5. Owning a cat can reduce the risk of a stroke and heart attacks.
  6. Gentoo penguins propose to their life mates with pebbles.
  7. In China, killing a Panda is punishable by death.
  8. Spider’s can’t fly. Praise Jesus… 
  9. Puffins mate for life (Just like penguins). They make their homes on cliff sides and set aside room for their toilet. Isn’t it wonderful when someone naturally mates for life. Ah, L’Amour.

  10. Oysters can actually change gender, depending on which is best for mating.
  11. Seahorses mate for life and when they travel, they hold each other’s tails.
  12. Turritopis nutricula – Immortal jellyfish is the only species known to live forever.
  13. Butterflies taste with their teeth. It makes sense when you think about it. 
  14. Squirrels will adopt other baby squirrels if they’re abandonded. Isn’t that absolutely lovely?! 
  15. Ostriches can run faster than horses and the male ostriches can roar like lions.
  16. Kangaroos use their tails for balance.
  17. On average, there are 50,000 spiders per acre in green areas. God, so help me… 
  18. Fleas can jump up to 200 times their height. This is equivalent to a man jumping the Empire State Building.
  19. A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.
  20. There are one million ants for every human being on earth. No worries. These creatures never sleep and they don’t have lungs. So help me! I dislike bugs greatly.
