Warning: the penis can explode.

If your lover ever tells you his penis is so hard he feels it might burst, take heed. According to a news story on a British website, the penis of a 28-year-old Romanian man actually exploded while he was making love to his girlfriend.

The young man, Ilarie Coroiu was taken to hospital in the Transylvanian town of Cluj after his girlfriend, Magdalena, 18, "felt something strange" and noticed that the bed was covered in blood.

Dr Angela Domocos, head of the accident and emergency department at Cluj General Hospital, said: "It is very rare for this to happen. We call it an exploded penis because it happens when the blood cavities in the penis burst."

Oral sex is ancient history.
According to historians, oral sex has been around since the beginning of sex. "It's prehistory," said Jim Petersen, author of Playboy's "History of the Sexual Revolution" series. "You can find oral sex in almost every ancient culture from Egyptian paintings to stone carvings in Indian temple walls." But there have always been interesting attitudes about it.

Both the eyeballs and the vagina are "self-cleaning" organs. Kind of like the oven. But not really.

Sleepyheads die first.
So much for getting your eight hours. Discover Magazine reports of a study that found that people who sleep for eight hours a night have a higher rate of death than those who snooze for just six or seven hours.

White skin has evolved over time.
In "Skin: A Natural History," Dr. Nina G. Jablonski asserts that white skin developed 20,000 to 50,000 years ago as humans moved away from the Equator.

"Dark skin evolved to protect the body from excessive sun rays," Jablonski told the New York Times. "Light skin evolved when people migrated away from the Equator and needed to make vitamin D in their skin. To do that, they had to lose pigment. Repeatedly over history, many people moved dark to light and light to dark. That shows that color is not a permanent trait."

Weight of the soul
It makes for a nice poetic story, and one very depressing Sean Penn movie, but the theory that the soul weighs 21 grams hasn't exactly been proven. The whole thing started in 1907, when Massachusetts doctor Duncan MacDougall conducted a series of experiments with six dying patients, in which he noted that their bodies weighed 21 grams less upon death - hence marking the departure of a 21-gram soul. MacDougall also measured dogs and noted no difference in pre- and post-mortem weight, thereby concluding that dogs do not have a soul.

The problem, as Great Moments in Science notes, is that MacDougall's six patients are too small of a sample to offer significant proof, and the experiments were plagued by technical difficulties and inconsistencies. In fact, only one of MacDougall's patients actually had a 21-gram drop in weight.

It is possible to die laughing.
Just ask the dearly departed Alex Mitchell, who spent his final moments laughing uncontrollably at an episode of the 1970s UK TV show "The Goodies," reports As his wife watched in horror (or glee?), Mitchell laughed for 25 straight minutes before he "slumped on the settee" and died of heart failure.

Masturbation is good for you.
Every 13 year-old teenage boy will agree with that statement, but it's good for us girls too. Studies show that orgasm can reduce sensitivity to pain, relieve menstrual cramps, and alleviate stress-possibly due to a surge in hormones like oxytocin and dopamine.

FOUND this from a blog. it's cool uh. lol. be careful guys! hahaha.

This is a dessert being serve in a restaurant in taiwan. A toilet-themed restaurant in Taipei now serves poop-like chocolate soft serve in black-and-white urinals to 100 customers sitting in toilet bowls instead of chairs.
