The life expectancy of Americans is 75.8 years. The life expectancy of a rock star is only 36.9 years.


Wonder what the life expectancy is for Pro Wrestlers.

Using my best Artist's Math®:

If Rock Stars = 36.9
and Avg. Americans = 75.8
then Pro Wrestlers = 112.7

No no. Those poor fucks die all the time. (Is it still too soon for Chris Benoit jokes?)

My math would be more like

If Rock Stars = 36.9
and Avg. Americans = 75.8
then Pro Wrestlers = -38.9

Your math is probably more accurate. I mean, you've got charts and such, and all I've got is a bunch of computer programs and braincell-killing chemicals...
:D

I admit to knowing very little about wrestling, but associate it with individuals such as Hulk Hogan or Jesse "The Body" Ventura who appear to be close to that 112.7 mark...

Quake

Postby black bart » Wed Feb 27, 2008 9:42 am

Did you know?

There is an Earthquake House at Comrie, near Perth in Scotland. It is located on the Great Highland Boundary Fault. Thanks to the fault, where the soft sandstone of the central valley rubs against the harder rocks of the Highlands, the area around Comrie has witnessed many tremors.

Curiously enough we had a 5.2 magnitude earthquake last night, the biggest in the UK for 25 years. The epicentre was in Lincolnshire but it was felt in London.

Croissants

Postby black bart » Tue Apr 29, 2008 9:16 am

Did you know?

Croissants were not invented by the French.

They were an Austrian creation to celebrate the end of the siege of Vienna by a Turkish army...hence the crescent shape.

0.2 percent 3.75 inches
0.3 percent 4 inches
0.2 percent 4.25 inches
1.7 percent 4.5 inches
0.8 percent 4.75 inches
4.2 percent 5 inches
4.4 percent 5.25 inches
10.7 percent 5.5 inches
8 percent 5.75 inches
23.9 percent 6 inches
8.8 percent 6.25 inches
14.3 percent 6.5 inches
5.7 percent 6.75 inches
9.5 percent 7 inches
1.8 percent 7.25 inches
2.9 percent 7.5 inches
1 percent 7.75 inches
1 percent 8 inches
0.3 percent 8.25 inches
0.3 percent 8.5 inches
0.1 percent 8.75 inches
0.1 percent 9 inches

(note: 1 inch = 2.54 cm, 0.25 inch = 0.635 cm)


Here the same data in some other from:

I notice everyone stopped posting to this thread...

Perhaps they got busy doing something else?


My penis, as it happens, is one of the 0.1% which is 8.75" long.

Unfortunately, it is only about 1/2" in diameter.

Funny, as my father was said to be "hung like an elevator button".


Where is the chart on female breast size?

Did you know that the Italians did not invent the pizza? It was invented by an Australian who just happened to be in Italy at the time.

It's taken longer than I thought, but this thread has finally turned silly...hoorah!

More statistics please...can we have breast sizes and butt sizes next?
