54.Sex cures headaches: Endorphins released into our bloodstream when we have sex not only give us pleasure, but also act as painkillers. That’s useful information to whip out the next time your partner uses a headache as a reason for refusing.

55.Homosexuality is not unique to humans: Many species have been observed engaging in homosexual activity; and male bats have the highest rate of homosexuality in all mammals.

56. 70 out of 100 people admit to picking their boogers. Gross! Out of those 7 people, 3 people admit to eating their boogers. Grosser!

57. Eating boogers isn't necessarily bad for you because it can strengthen your immune system. However, using your finger that has germs and bacteria on it to retrieve the booger is not healthy. All the icky stuff on your fingers is going inside your nose. It is also not healthy to later put that finger in your mouth.
