Crap!!! Japan rates fourth at a life expectancy of 80.93 years. Andorra is first, at 83.49 years. The United States is 48th--77.14 years. The worst of the 224 countries studied is Mozambique, at 31.3 years.

Fact or Crap: Hall of Famer George Sisler, who held baseball's single seaon hit record until Ichiro Suzuki broke it, suffered from double vision.

Fact....Sisler, a left-handed first baseman for the St. Louis Browns, hit .407 in1920, getting 257 hits, a record that held up for 84 years. Two years after Sisler set the record, a bout of flu damaged his sinuses so severely that he was left with permanent double vision. He sat out the whole 1923 season, but trained himself to hit the "two balls" he saw crossing the plate. Astoundingly, he batted over .300 in six of his last seven seasons.

Fact or Crap: In 2002, more than 10 million people aged 12 or older reported using MDMA (Ecstasy) at least once in their lifetime.
