Only 66%... Ours seems to spend more than that asleep, she wakes up and runs around if her food bowl is empty but otherwise in the winter alternates between in front of the fire and one of her bed places.

If you shuffle a deck of cards, the arrangement of those cards is likely to have never been done by anyone before, or likely to ever be repeated again. The number of possible sequences in a deck of cards is 80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000 - which is more than the number of atoms in the observable universe.

 Your salivary glands produce 0.5-1.5 litres of saliva a day. You'll never see a bottle of pop in the same way again!

Did you know that if you put your ear up to a stranger's leg, you can hear them say 'What the eff are you doing?!'

Also, did you know that there's a species of deer able to jump higher than the average house? This is due to its powerful rear legs and the fact that the average house cannot jump.

Did you know, the human body has 7 trillion nerves...and some people manage to get on every single one of them
