10 Interesting facts about KISS...

Everybody seems to know how to kiss. The question is: Are you aware of a variety of interesting facts and details about a kiss? Is kissing good or bad for you? How do they do it in Japan , France and other countries? Can you slim down by kissing too much? Below are some of the most curious things about kissing.


1. An act of kissing puts 29 facial muscles in motion. In other words, kissing can be used as an effective exercise to prevent the development of wrinkles.

2. Lovers swap saliva containing various substances e.g. fats, mineral salts, proteins while kissing. According to latest studies, the exchange of the above substances can give a boost to the production of antibodies which are made specifically to deal with the antigens associated with different diseases as they are encountered.

3. As a rule, 66 percent of people keep their eyes closed while kissing. The rest take pleasure in watching the emotions run the gamut on the faces of their partners.

4. According to U.S. statistics, an American woman would kiss an average of 80 men before she gets married.

5. A quick romantic kiss will burn about 2-3 calories, whereas French kiss (an openmouthed kiss with tongue contact) will obliterate more than 5 calories.

6. Sensitivity of the lips is 200 times higher than that of the fingers.

7. It is thought that men who kiss their wives goodbye before going to work live five years longer than those who just slam the door. Men of the latter category are said to be more prone to traffic accidents.

8. Smooching passionately for 90 seconds will elevate blood pressure and cause the pulse rate to go racing. It will also increase the level of hormones in the blood, thus reducing life by one minute.

9. French kiss is called a “juncture of souls” in France . Not only the lips do the job, the tongues come into play too. The passionate French invented another variety of the soul kiss in which only the tongues are employed.

10. Contrary to a popular belief, the Eskimos do not merely rub their noses against each other in a display of love and affection. The lips open up a bit once the olfactory organs of the kissing partners meet. Then the Eskimos take a deep breath and send the air out while holding their lips closed. After savoring the scent of each other, the partners press noses against each other’s cheeks and freeze for a minute of two.

The Wife's cat - A Funny Story for a Break...

Mobile Phone That Can Check Pulse...

New mobile can check pulse and send ambulance...


A new phone developed in Singapore takes your pulse when you press your fingers on a receptor, and sends the results to a 24-hour medical call centre. The new EPI Life mobile phone comes complete with mini electrocardiogram.This is going to be a revolution and has clinical significance.

"Anywhere in the world you can use it as a phone but you are also able to transfer an ECG and get a reply"

EPI Life has three hospitals in Singapore, all of which carry the phone users’ history. EPI Life costs $700 (516 Euros), the price of a top range Smartphone, and 2,000 of them have been on the market since 2010.

Cool Comments From 1955!

Comments made in the year 1955........

‘I’ll tell you one thing, if things
keep going the way they are,
it’s going to be impossible to
buy a week’s groceries for $10.00. ‘

‘Have you seen the new cars
coming out next year? It won’t
be long before $1, 000.00 will
only buy a used one.’

‘If cigarettes keep going up in
price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents
a pack is ridiculous. ‘

‘Did you hear the post office is
thinking about charging 7 cents
just to mail a letter.’

‘If they raise the minimum wage
to $1.00, nobody will be able to
hire outside help at the store.’

‘When I first started driving, who
would have thought gas would
someday cost 25 cents a gallon.
Guess we’d be better off leaving
the car in the garage.’

‘I’m afraid to send my kids to the
movies any more. Ever since they
let Clark Gable get by with saying
DAMN in ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’,
it seems every new movie has
either HELL or DAMN in it.’

‘I read the other day where some
scientist thinks it’s possible to put
a man on the moon by the end of
the century. They even have some
fellows they call astronauts
preparing for it down in Texas .’

‘Did you see where some baseball
player just signed a contract for
$50,000 a year just to play ball?
It wouldn’t surprise me if someday
they’ll be making more than the
President. ‘

‘I never thought I’d see the day
all our kitchen appliances would
be electric. They are even making
electric typewriters now. ‘

‘It’s too bad things are so tough
nowadays. I see where a few
married women are having to
work to make ends meet. ‘

‘It won’t be long before young
couples are going to have to hire
someone to watch their kids so
they can both work.’

‘I’m afraid the Volkswagen car
is going to open the door to a
whole lot of foreign business.’

‘Thank goodness I won’t live to
see the day when the Government
takes half our income in taxes. I
sometimes wonder if we are
electing the best people to
government.’

‘The drive-in restaurant is
convenient in nice weather,
but I seriously doubt they
will ever catch on.’

‘There is no sense going on short
trips anymore for a weekend. It
costs nearly $2.00 a night to stay
in a hotel.’

‘No one can afford to be sick
anymore. At $15.00 a day in
the hospital, it’s too rich for
my blood.’

‘If they think I’ll pay 30 cents
for a hair cut, forget it.’


Japan quake shifted Earth 4 inches on its axis


The massive earthquake that shook Japan and triggered a huge tsunami appears to have shifted the Earth on its axis and moved an island of Japan, a media report said on Saturday.

Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey, told CNN: "At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass."

Reports from an Italian institute estimated that Japan earthquake shifted Earth on its axis by as much as 4 inches,CNN said. The earthquake measuring 8.9 (9.0 in latest reports) on the Richter scale rocked Japan Friday and spawned a tsunami that slammed into the northeastern coast, leaving about 10,000 people feared dead.

Shengzao Chen, a geophysicist, explained that the quake occurred as the Earth's crust ruptured along an area about 400 km long by 160 km wide, as tectonic plates slipped more than 18 metres.

The Japan quake follows the Feb 22 earthquake in New Zealand that killed 150 people.
