Take penguins, for instance.

No joke: Your partner’s stinky farts may save your life!

Everyone farts.

And everyone tries very hard to prevent farting in public.  That’s a lot of pent-up gas.

So why the pressure to not break wind in front of others?  Is it society politeness? Is it embarrassment of being labeled a Stink-a-roo?  Being stuck in an elevator with a foul odor for an extended period of time?

Interactive: Weather forecast for your area in the year 2100

There is one common denominator in most small talk conversations: “HOW’S THE WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE?

Why is the weather such a topic of discussion? Because it’s safe. Everyone has an opinion on it, and you can’t argue whether someone’s wrong.  If you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour – it’ll likely change.

You don’t have to be smart to be good. Practice doesn’t always make perfect.

Web Watch knows quite a few professional sports players, and in the off-season, we regularly see them continuing to practice honing their skills.

Peeing in the Pool can Kill You

We know you’ve done it at least once – everyone has pee’d in the pool at least once in their life.

Of course, this is more expected with children and others who have less control of their bathroom habits, but we’re sure that there are one or a dozen adults out there who have peed in the pool – on purpose – on some drunken night.

Heck, we’re fairly certain we saw one of the contestants on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette pee in the hot tub on an episode.  We definitely remember seeing it happen in MTV’s The Real World hot tub, as well as on CBS’s Big Brother.  And Michael Phelps did say that “all Olympic swimmers pee in the pool… all the time!”

If an Olympic athlete will pee in the pool, then how bad could it be for the rest of us?
