Default Did you know......

There are some little known facts about the universe we live in.
I thought it might be interesting if we share some with each other.

To start this off........

Did you know........, according to the laws of aerodynamics, it's impossible for a Bumble Bee to fly?

God, yeh, that one is unreal!!

Uh, lessee if I got something, this is a cool thread.



Casual dating can be dangerous. A study of spiders shows female wolf spiders will eat strange-looking males that try to mate with them, but spare and even hook up with familiar-looking males. The findings provide not just an interesting insight into spider behavior, but may help explain actions by "higher" animals, said arachnologist Eileen Hebets of Cornell University in New York. "The female is using earlier experience that is going to affect her mate choice later," Hebets said in a telephone interview. "It is reasonable to expect that is a common thing in other animals." Hebets worked with Schizocosa uetzi spiders, commonly known as wolf spiders. The female, which is slightly larger, can choose a) to mate, b) to run away or c) to eat her suitor. Apparently, running away is not a very frequently used option.....
I think I dated one of those, once.....

If you trace the the lines of longitude and latitude, you'll see it's true.
I think it's only by about 15 miles of so.

For REAL?? I can't even get my head around that, even though I know you are right here. I guess it's safe to say that California is crooked?

Here's a cool one, I think!

When glass breaks, the cracks move faster than 3,000 miles per hour. To photograph the event, a camera must shoot at a millionth of a second!
Almost as fast as our Corvette's!
