18 - It’s a positive…
If a man takes a urine pregnancy test and it shows a positive result, it could mean that he has testicular cancer.


17 - Sleep easy…
Duke University released the results of a study they did on men and their sleep patterns. Men can tolerate sleep deprivation way better than women. When women don’t get enough sleep, they suffer both physically and mentally according to the study.

16 - Don’t shoot the messenger…
How this fact was deduced, I have no idea, but many sites suggest that men tell 6 lies every day. This is twice the amount of lies that women tell daily.

15 - Alarm Bells…
According to several studies, men’s biggest dating fears are that the woman won’t allow him his free time, that she will come between him and his friends, that she’ll be a stalker, won’t respect him or is too high maintenance.

14 - If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime…
When it comes to crime, if a man or a woman were to do the same crime – men would on average receive 63% longer sentences. Sorry guys!

13 - I’ll drink to that…
In Ancient Persia, men would often debate important subjects while drunk and sober, that way if the idea sounded good in both circumstances, then it would be considered a great idea.



12 - More cushion
It’s no surprises that women are not initially attracted to men who are carrying around a lot of extra weight around the belly, because science has proven that men with the extra weight there have lower levels of testosterone. They also tend to have lower physical drive and lower fertility. So, from a biological level, you’re less attracted to that person because the chances of him being able to “knock you up” are considerably less than their fitter counterparts.

11 - Teamwork…
Studies have proven that dads who do their share of the housework tend to have daughters that are more ambitious and who have broader definitions of gender roles.


10 - Not a manly man…
When Father’s Day initially began, it wasn’t met with great enthusiasm from everyone. A number of fathers considered the holiday emasculating, and they didn’t approve of the idea of kids giving their fathers presents that they pretty much bought themselves.

9 - Father of evolution…
Charles Darwin had 10 children, and he loved them very much. Those times bringing kids up was definitely seen as a woman’s work, but Darwin played a key role in raising and educating his children.

8 - Number 1 gift…
Yes, neckties are pretty much standard when it comes to gifts on Father’s Day. Neckties have their history all the way back to 221 BC. When the terracotta army was discovered, they were also all depicted wearing neckties.

7 - Age is but a number…
The oldest father in the world is believed to be Ramajit Raghav from India who was 96-years old at the time. His 52-year old wife gave birth in 2010 to a baby boy.

6 - Go halves…
Many fathers around the world have all claimed to have experienced couvade syndrome, which is more commonly known as “sympathy pregnancy.” Basically, the men experience the same pregnancy symptoms as their wife including weight gain, vomiting, changes in hormone levels and nausea.

5 - Hair raising fact…
A man’s beard can contain as many as 15,000 follicles, and no less than 7,000.

4 - Runs in the family...
Men who have many brothers have a higher chance of bearing sons, whereas a man who has a number of sisters will more than likely have daughters.

3 - An itch to scratch…
When women have a yeast infection, it’s honestly no joke. It’s itchy, uncomfortable and embarrassing. Did you know that men are also able to pick up a yeast infection, particularly those that are uncircumcised, heavyset or struggle with heavy sweating? Symptoms include rashes, discharge and a terrible itch. Over the counter medicines don’t discriminate – so if you’re struggling with it, just head to your local pharmacy.

2 - Here comes the bride…
Weddings have changed dramatically over the last few years and giving away of the bride seems to be fading away. This tradition was to symbolize the fact that the father of the bride no longer had control over his daughter, and that it was the new husband’s responsibility to look after her, her welfare and provide her with possessions. Basically, the husband would take over the role of the father in a way… it’s no wonder things have changed so dramatically.
