Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang!
Do you prefer Bisous or maybe an Akkolade? It's really the same thing, namely a double cheek kiss - only once in French, once in German. When it comes to kissing, however, there are not only different terms from country to country but also locally quite different norms and even laws that regulate tenderness. This brings us back to the French - but of course, there are also very general and scientific observations about kissing. Our top five of the most unusual (and useless) facts about the most beautiful pastime of all.
“Where should one use perfume?" a young woman asked. "Wherever one wants to be kissed.”
- Fitness program of a different kind: During an intimate kiss, you burn more than 6.4 Calories per minute. Doesn't sound like much at first - but if you kiss for a whole ten minutes, you've done just as much for your fitness as a jogger. Okay, a jogger who has only run a hundred meters. But hey, it's the thought that counts!
- Forbidden good: in the state of Michigan, it is forbidden by law to kiss your wife on Sundays. The French also regulate the sign of affection: Here, it is not allowed to do it on railroad crossings and tracks. Honestly, it's better that way - and healthier for everyone involved because when you kiss, you quickly forget everything around you.
- Correctly executed, a kiss strengthens the immune system: a good 250 bacteria are exchanged during tenderness. A natural kind of vaccination, so to speak. Oh yes: 60 milligrams of water, 0.7 milligrams each of protein and fat, and 0.4 milligrams of salt are also included.
- It sounds crazy, but it's true: the average driver kisses for 2 hours and 14 minutes inside his own vehicle. But hopefully only when stationary - otherwise, he runs the risk of involuntarily reducing the average duration.
- The 2005 film »Kids in America« holds the record for the longest movie kiss - it lasts a full 5 minutes and 57 seconds. It is also the end credits of the movie. The longest movie kiss to date was in the 1941 film »Horror of the Second Company« It lasted 3 minutes and 3 seconds - which is just under four percent of the length of the entire film.
