Preparation is key – to life. That’s why we’ve got some funny facts to prepare you with all you’ll need to start Freshers. Ok, maybe that’s a bit OTT, but it might help break the ice when meeting new friends. My best friend made a girl laugh with the elephant fact mentioned below, they are now married, true story!

  1. Did you know a hedgehog’s heart beats more than 300 times a minute? Well now you do.
  2. The human thigh bone is stronger than concrete! You won’t want to break that anytime soon…
  3. You physically can’t kill yourself by holding your breath, no matter how hard you try! Not sure why you would attempt that, anyway.
  4. It is against the law to have a pet dog in Iceland. Well that just sounds miserable don’t you think?
  5. It is against the law to burp, sneeze, or fart in a church in Nebraska… Maybe give it a miss if you’re suffering with a cold or had a curry the night before?
  6. Dolphins sleep with one eye open at all times… Maybe they’re just paranoid.
  7. Most dust particles floating through the air are dead skin cells… You should probably hold your breath as much as you can from now on.
  8. Some worms get so stressed out they eat themselves! Sounds like a normal Monday morning, right?
  9. You can’t sneeze with your eyes open! And even if you did, they’d probably just pop out.
  10. Elephants are the only animal that can’t jump. Earthquakes would probably be much more common if they did…

Hopefully these funny facts made you laugh, or at least break a smile. If not then try to hold a straight face whilst reading Your Week Presented by Donald Trump
