    Finedessert: This is something to think about the next time you go to the beach, and on your next dream vacation......

    The average blue whale produces over 400 gallons of sperm when it ejaculates, but only 10% of that actually makes it into his mate.

    So 360 gallons are spilled into the ocean every time one unloads ... and you wonder why the ocean is so salty...

    Pass it on, and don't swallow the water! ::)

    And I thought all those little squirmy lumps in the water were jellyfish!

    aussiechick63: Does that mean we can get pregnant of we go swimming nude?
    Giving birth sure feels like delivering a whale.

    H8Monga: *calls 911 for Pecker after he tried to kill me with laughter* :D :D :D

    Grandpa, I haven't been to the beach since I was 3 and I hated getting the water in my mouth. Don't forget, not only is there whale sperm in the ocean, there's sperm and other fluids from all kinds of animals there too! Think about all the things that die in the ocean and dissolve from the salt water... I'm saying no more... :-X

    AnonyMs: no problem for me.... i still can not get into the water after seeing JAWS lo! those many years ago. Saw it at a very impressionable age. And with the gators in the water here, i tend to only go into chlorinated water these days.

    Well now I don't feel so guilty about peeing in the water.

    :p
