1. Two out of every three couples turn their heads to the right when they kiss.
2. A simple peck uses two muscles; a passionate kiss, on the other hand, uses all 34 muscles in your face. Now that’s a rigorous workout!
3. Like fingerprints or snowflakes, no two lip impressions are alike.
4. Kissing is good for what ails you. Research shows that the act of smooching improves our skin, helps circulation, prevents tooth decay, and can even relieve headaches.
5. The average person spends 336 hours of his or her life kissing.
6. Ever wonder how an “X” came to represent a kiss? Starting in the Middle Ages, people who could not read used an X as a signature. They would kiss this mark as a sign of sincerity. Eventually, the X came to represent the kiss itself.
7. Talk about a rush! Kissing releases the same neurotransmitters in our brains as parachuting, bungee jumping, and running.
8. The average woman kisses 29 men before she gets married.
9. Men who kiss their partners before leaving for work average higher incomes than those who don’t.
10. The longest kiss in movie history was between Jane Wyman and Regis Tommey in the 1941 film, You’re in the Army Now. It lasted 3 minutes and 5 seconds. So if you’ve beaten that record, it’s time to celebrate!
What is your philosophy? In other words, what is it that you believe in? Values, morals, expectations. Are you naturally optimistic or pessimistic? And please, don't say you're realistic, haha, because that's completely subjective! :)
It’s so funny that you asked this because I’m writing a paper as we speak about what my philosophy is for education (I’m becoming a teacher).
I believe in love and that every human being on this planet has that capacity and shouldn’t be exempt from marriage regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation.
I believe most highly in respect and this is true in multiple situations. Respect in relationships between partners, respect from children and from their parents, respect of peers to their following classmates and professors/teachers, etc. I’ve gotten into trouble defending a classmate that I was friends with because she was being picked on and I wouldn’t take that back for anything.
Lastly I must admit I’m a bit of a feminist! I’m all about equal rights (could you not tell by now?). I think due to the amount of disregard for all THREE beliefs that I just stated that I’ve become quite the pessimist. I’m a little ashamed to say so, but I think it’s because I’ve given up on a good portion of the human race who just keeps disappointing me in the advancement of equal rights and gay marriage. I am trying to be more optimistic because I know that’s the only way something can be done in this world. I want to shape lives, which is exactly why I want to be a teacher =].
Sorry for the novel! I hope this answered what you were looking for.
