  1. Hair and fingernails dont grow after u die…. otherwise there would be fingernails sticking out of the ground everywhere (ewwwww)

  2. How do you know termites eat wood twice as fast when listening to heavy metl music?

  3. ALL OF THESE FACTS ARE TRUE DO NOT QUESTION THEM…..OR YOU WILL FACE THE WRATH OF THE USELESS KNOWLEDGE GODS!!!!!!!!!!

  4. i love all these random facts, me and my friend are always in competiton on who knows the most random facts

  5. umm yes fingernails do grow after death because they only grow for about two months after death. and hair grows for about the same amount of time.

    and scientists can test how fast termites eat when listining to vaious types of music.
    although how weird that sounds it is true.

  6. HI I LIKE EGGS

  7. so umm…..whens ya next birfday? i was jus wonderin cuz my scale says i’m 130lbs. when i’m rally only 90

  8. fingernails & hair are dead cells.. they don’t grow massively but enough to continue growing after death

    ps. i likee these facts [:
    keep them comingg ..?

  9. no, fingernails and hair do not grow after death. research it. they appear to grow because the skin around your nails and on your head shrinks somewhat after you die.

  10. Gadsby is the longest book never to use the letter E

  11. “Fingernails and hair grow after death.” = FALSE

    (Thank you nov at least one person knew what they were talking about.)

    The human body begins to dehydrate after a person dies. Because the skin is so dry, it “pulls away from nails and hair.” This makes it appear as though the nails and hair are growing, but in fact the body itself is shrinking.

  12. lol@ all these losers arguing whether hair grows after people die. XDXDXD

  13. Smile if u r a happui person don’t frown

  14. haha i know right?
    seriously people…no one really cares. the person dead anyway. go dig some random person up and find out yourself

  15. did you know that all polar bears are left handed?
    or that giraffes don’t have vocal cords?
    or that it is possible to lead a cow up stairs, but not down? hows that for random?

  16. seriously, its funnier that you guys are having a useless fight about usless facts than the facts themselves!

  17. yeah, i know! isnt it strange?
    Did you know that if you leave a goldfish in a dark room it’ll turn white?
    And more money is published for Monopoly than for US treasury every DAY!!!

    -It is impossible to lick your elbow (unless of course you are some kind of contortionist…)
    -If you dive too deep in the ocean without special gear, your body can implode.

    -Kiwi birds were named after the fruit
    -If Christopher Columbus had discovered America, there would not have been people here before him.
    -The only mammals that lay eggs are the Platypus and the Echidna.

  20. hair and fingernails only grow to a certain amount of time…

  21. i just researched it……….:( i was wrong lol

  22. HAHAHAHA. HI I LIKE EGGS.

  23. hair and fingernails dont grow. its an illusion because in reality its your skin receding that makes it appear that your hair and nails are growing.

  24. hahaha, ya’ll crack me up. arguing about nothing, anyyway, i love these. they crack me up even moree. (:

  25. lol i love this..what else is there to do at 2 am? ..besides study for finals..
    ahhh.

    guess what the avg speed a dragonfly can travel is 30 mph. :)
    a goldfish has a attention span of 3 seconds..idk i read it somewhere. haha

  26. Hair and fingernails do NOT grow after death, the retraction of your skin makes them seem longer. Scientific fact. Eat it.

  27. Ok for those of you who keep arguing about the hair and fingernails thing I hope this helps, if it doesn’t you should stop wasting your time on the internet and go do something useful with your life…( i should do that same) anyway here it goes.. Hair and fingernails aren’t actually growing. Dead is dead. The only things growing after you’re dead are worms, bacteria, and flowers. What is happening, however, is that the skin around the hair and fingernails will desiccate (i.e., lose water) and thereby shrink. When the skin shrinks, it retracts, making hair and fingernails look longer, as if they’d grown.

  28. wow u guys are fighting about this???
    but i have to agree with the ppl tht ar saying they dont grow; i mean think about it. when u die, your whole body completely dies. gone, dead.

  29. okay…uhm who cares bout the fingernails thing? its still fun lol!

    love these facts=D lmao

  30. Haha.
    I love the way you put it Charlie. . .
    These are all great! =]

  31. haha this is funny. you guys r argueing on the internet about fingernails and hair growing after you die. but really who cares? but hey keep on argueing its funny

  32. hahaha nobody really cares once your dead how much your hair and fingernails grow cuz its not like anybody is going to dig you up and cut em… grosssss…. :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

  33. I can like my elbow….

  34. i LOVE RANDOM FACTS!!

  35. you can like your elbow but you certainly cant lick it

  36. the yelling thing is true i did it b4

  37. WOW. ok. guys…your all sstupid. once your dead. your dead. nothing grows. its like saying you get taller when your dead. YOU CANT!! hair and nails dont grow when your dead. AND…thats it. guys..stop wasting your lives. (advice I should take). Go chase a car…or party. ok? once your dead..your dead.

  38. and…”me” (the one above me). Im not sure if you MEANT to lie..but…thats impossible. u sat on a chair…4 more than 8 years with a mug in frunt of you??? nice try buckaroo…

  39. i actually can lick both of my elbows. everyone says its impossible, but i can do it…

  40. well kaitlyn if you can give me a call ;) haha jk

  41. Fingernails and hair don’t continue to grow after you die. It appears that they do, but that is because your skin shrinks when it looses the water that is in it. However, when you die it isn’t like you body just completely shuts down instantly. The brain keeps a small electrical charge for several months after you die.

  42. Haha! What’s making me laugh even more than the actual fight is that people are still commenting/ trying to explain it. We get it. Like 10 people explained that they don’t really grow.
    Lets all calm down now =).

    Anyway, nice facts =D

  43. STOP TALKING ABOUT THE FINGERNAIL CRAP

  44. so some people believe that your fingernails and hair continue to grow after you die, but your phone calls tend to taper off.

  45. ok yeah why are we arguing about fingernails and hair? why dont you go ride a bike. or go play baseball. dont you have finals to be studying?

  46. so i’m glad everyone thinks it’s a big deal about the fingernails and hair. Honestly? lets use some common sense here. Geeze lol

  47. hello there folks! i like eggs more than anyone in the whole entire universe so beat that!

  49. wait guys im still confused. do your fingernails grow and does your hair grow when you’re dead? i think i need 10 million other people who have nothing better to do with their time tell me that they don’y.

  50. btw u guys are a bunch of comedians. have u heard of a certain girl named emilee? shes a hoot

  51. It is NOT impossible to lick your elbow. My sister and I both can do it, and we are not contortionists. I can’t even do the splits… :P

    Guiness World Records gets about five calls a day from people thinking they’ve made some world record because they can lick their elbows…. it’s just very uncommon. Very few people can do it. :]

  57. I OWN THESE FACTS!!!

  58. hair and teeth continue to grow for 2-3 months after death because the body is decomposing.

    the reason why we dont have nails sticking out of the ground at cemetaries is because the corpses are in sealed COFFINS.

  163. Eggs are nasty!! Which one came first the chicken or the egg??

  164. If you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib.

    If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and die.

    If you keep your eyes open by force when you sneeze, you might pop an eyeball out.

    peace people!

  165. actually fingernails and hair do not grow after death, they only appear longer because your skin is shrinking and shribbling making everything seem like its growing but in reality it is the same size just your skin is different. (: i’m a smart coookie.

  167. oh and a couple more…
    raw eggs help your hair and give it nice shine
    mud and some clay soften your face
    keeping your feet clean and wearing socks and or shoes all the time keeps your feet healthier
    (a beliefe..works for me) cutting or trimming your hair on a full or growing moon makes your hair grow healthy and faster and if you cut it on a srinking moon makes it grow back just as health but slower

  259. Woman speak more words than man only because they spent more time of their life complaining lol

  260. The main library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year by the weight of books.

  261. Only “Fainting goats” fall over while scared and ONLY that type of goat

    Crocodiles actually have the strongest bite in the world, Snapping turtles have the second

    The whale shark DOES in fact eat small fish

    Bugs have more protein per gram not pound

    Crows place nuts on the ground around the whole world, not just north America, in fact it was first seen in Japan and started everywhere else years later.

    Nothing flaps faster than the sun’s rays hit earth and regardless a LOT of birds flap a hell of a lot faster than the kingfisher.

    And you don’t actually eat spiders it was published in a journal as an article to proof how stupid people were and how they’d believe anything they read on the internet. Even if it was true spiders are small and light, you simply breathing would scare them away, also if it was to happen your tongue would push it away or you’d wake up choking, there’s also the fact that spiders HATE getting wet and it seriously messes with them so why on EARTH would they crawl into some wet damp moving place? Both spiders and pretty much all incests HATE CO2 and it can actually kill them, so they avoid it and since you breathing if you expelling the CO2 from your lungs, they’ll stay away from you.

    Also, I do love how the only people calling those like me nerds, can’t spell or use grammar so forgive me for not caring about your uneducated, idiotic and pathetic opinions.

  262. how can something dead continue too grow? im not saying its not possible im so curious

  263. I’m not sure about the hair, but nails DON’T grow after you die; the skin around them shrivels up and that makes them look like they’ve grown.

  264. Lolz im no contortionist but i can lick meh elbow.Did you know that on AdventureQuest moglins can not feel pain? No really test it whack Twilly`s dumb but adorable face.

  265. iv jus read all da comments. it s insane, u ppl r obsessed wiv eggs, and the growin after ur dead. dis has gon on for 3 yrs now. lets have a cuppa, eh? x

  266. Haha hair and nails Lolol oh you don’t eat 8 spiders…silly….unless your a compulsive spider eater! ;-)))

  267. The hair and finger nail thing is wrong…what happens is that the flesh at their roots decays, exposing the more of them, so they have the illusion of growing (don’t you just HATE people like me?! LOL)

  268. lol
    fact

    Just took me like 1 hour to wright comment “)

  269. lol ur all so funny i finally made it to the bottom hippo milk is pink…

  270. “Both spiders and pretty much all incests”
    Anyone else realize that Ara wrote incests rather than insects (incest being sexual interactions between close relatives..), and then proceeded to bash people for improper spelling and grammar? She had insanely long run on sentences too, and over-used commas to try and hide it. :l

  271. Wow! Itz d 3rd year & people are still commenting….. Wel, I dont believe dat stuff ’bout fingernails & hair growing after death….. Wen u’re dead u’re dead!:-)
    - not evry1 can wink… Can u believe dat!:-)

  272. omigawd, first the arguement was about fingernails and nails and growing and stuff, but now its bout bugs crawling into mouths. Whts next:)? oh and btw, all the people saying that they hate eggs are just mad people. make luv not argue….. just argee:)

  273. so let me check if i got this right.dead polar bears eat eggs using nails while reading stolen guiness book?hmmm…felt something was still wrong..lol

  274. weird

  275. your hair and finger nails are dead cells so the grow until your flesh rots away

  276. Reading mad comments is a great way to kill a few insomniac hours…

    I wanted to add that the last I heard about the ‘eating 8 spiders’ “fact” was that it actually refers to the average insect/arachnid content of food like chocolate (guess how many cockroaches are in every 100g??) and then average chocolate consumption per person.

    We also consume a hell of a lot of faeces, a healthier practice than you might think, but certainly not an appetizing one!

    Some Aussie trivia to leave you with:

    A wombat’s pouch opens ‘backwards’ so that dirt doesn’t get in the pouch whilst the wombat is digging burrows.

    A baby kangaroo (a joey) isn’t born in the pouch but instead has to climb up from the birth canal to the pouch immediately after being born. Tough gig.

    We all know about hair and nails, but did you know that your ears and nose keep growing right up until your death? If human lifespans keep increasing, it’ll be interesting to see whether the elderly begin to resemble elephants! (Also, my nose might get to be the length of my thumb when I’m 150, but it’s no where near that long now!)

    I can lick my elbow too… Just put your arm straight up, twist it so your palm faces behind you, drop your shoulder blades down, tilt your head up, and stick out your tongue. Stretch your neck a bit and you’ll get there – practice will help you get more flexible. A good party trick!

  277. I realy dnt know how people get so much time to think this much on such facts and then research and then comment..guys pleaseeeee…I realy dnt know how people get so much time to think this much on such facts and then research and then comment..guys pleaseeeee…just read and enjoy the facts…..cooool einstines of our world..have fun..

  278. WOW, i love looking at random facts.

  279. heres a random fact for you.

    lobsters and some species of shark never show any signs of ageing until they get lacerated in any way.

  280. Ok why dont ppl just stop talking about hair and fingernails growing or not after death. Is it really that important to know? Who is gonna care? Seriously!
    Not to be mean or rude to the people participating in the argument. But it is true. Name one person besides the people arguing on here or your friends or whatever that care about this stuff. You guys should just move on in your lives.

  281. A lot of the interesting facts that people left were really great! thx for the laughs!

  282. @Kenzie: Important or not, when an article states that its facts are true and then puts in an urban myth, people are going to call it out on it, especially if no effort is made to correct it. For me it’s a personal pet peeve, when certain things are misrepresented as true.

    There’s nothing wrong with extra knowledge, no matter how trivial it may seem.

    Most of us can live our lives not knowing who Shakespeare, Mozart or Gandhi are, but then we’d probably be considered ignorant, and nobody worth their salt would find us as someone they can have an intelligent conversation with.

    Don’t know why my earlier post is gone.

  283. for the people that think golfishes have a memory of 3 second ure wronge they tested it on mythbusters

  284. all these are true i got realy board and tested them hahah ! ;)

    P.S turmites bite :/ :)

  285. beatles taste like bacon.
    Women waste 65.5% of their life time looking at da mirror.

  286. You can’t kill yourself by holding your breath..

  287. All of you who are arguing whether these facts are true or fake, YOUR A RETARD because everyone with a brain would know they are TRUE!!!!!!

  288. hey listen to this random joke
    roses are red
    violets are blue
    god made me perfect
    what the hell happened
    to you??!?!?!

  289. i hate the fact that we swallow spiders!! and insects too!!

  290. FACT: As you’er body decomposes after DEATH! You’er hair CAN grow up to 3 FEET after death, as well you’er nails CAN grow 3 to 6 inches after death! It has been that as far back as History has loge things on death… And not of his-story her-stoy!!!

  291. Hair and nails DO NOT grow after death regardless of what “Dr. Bran” says. As the body decomposes, the skin dehydrates and pulls tighter against the bones and decomposing muscles. This gives the APPEARANCE that the nails and hair are still growing. For them to grow, the person would have to be alive as hair follicle cells would not divide otherwise.
