you Have Got to be Kidding me!?

It has been a pretty normal day today, not much happened, so to humor myself I decided to search google. yup, I know i need to get a life, or a hobby, but whatever i decided to do some research. While on my google conquest i came upon the weirdest statistic ever,

"On average, 100 people choke on ball point pens a year..."

huh.... a year, on ball point pens? How does this happen, and why is the pen even in you mouth? this intrigued me so I looked up some other odd facts and came up with a list of my top twenty weird statistics I decided to post as my entry for today, here it goes....
