Hot Mess Gets Interesting Email This Morning

I received this email, a chain email of course, that had some pretty interesting facts. I put some of my own commentary after some of the facts.  I really couldn’t stop myself because some of these things were, umm, I don’t even have words to describe them.  You’ll see. Have yourself a read.


In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

WHAT??!!!! Isn’t all sex with animals, sex with an animal?? Who cares if it is female!!!!!!!!

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman’s genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

How the hell can he actually diagnose anything? If there is a spot on his mirror will he claim its a cyst or a herpe??!!! good lord!

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.

Why a brick or piece of wood???? Why not a piece of clothing?!!!!!!

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation. !

Ummmm…….. OK.

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time

Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

(Let’s just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)

Who pays for this to happen? Fathers who don’t want their daughters to marry???!!! I mean, seriously!!!!!!!!!!

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband’s illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!) Hmm…… interesting.

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England – but only in tropical fish stores.

(But of course!) Ummm.. tropical fish stores??!!! Why there?! Who makes these rules and laws???

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought.) EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW…. thats grosssssssssss!!!!!!!

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.

(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only ‘in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises.’

(Is this a great country or what? Well, not as great as Guam!)
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

(Who volunteers for this stuff?)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. (From drinking little bottles of???)

(Did the government pay for this research??)

Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Ah, geez.)

An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)

Starfish don’t have brains.

(I know some people like that, too.)

And, the best for last?

Turtles can breathe through their butts.

(And I thought I had bad breath in the morning!)


I know, these were some fabulous pieces of information that you couldn’t LIVE without.  I know I sure couldn’t.  Where do these chain letter emails originate?  How does one determine the topic of the email?  Where do they get the information to fill them up?  Do they use Google? Or Wikipedia? How do you determine between the two? How do you decide how long the email will be?  What about the number or people that it is to be sent to? Who determines that number and how? Is there an expert for writing chain emails? How would one become an expert in them?  Does it depend on the number you have received or the number you have sent?  What about schooling? Are there specific courses you had to take to become an expert in sending a chain email?  Are the requirements different for an expert in sending chain LETTERS versus chain EMAILS?

If anyone has information to contribute to this, I am happy to learn as much as possible! Thanks.
