Random facts.

Since I'm still unsure about what direction this blog is going to start heading here are some random facts you might find interesting.


1. British sailors got the name "Limeys" because they used lime juice to combat scurvy.

2. The largest species of bat is known as the Giant Golden-Crowned Flying Fox, which has a wing span of over 6 feet.

3. A comet's tail always points away from the sun.

4. Originally BMW manufactured airplane engines.

5. If the entire population of the earth was reduced to 100 people 51 people would be female, 49 would be male; 50% of the world's currency would be held by 6 people, 1 person would be nearly dead, and 1 person would be nearly born.

6. Jupiter's moon Ganymede is larger than the planet Mercury.

7. Flamingos urinate on their legs to cool off.

8. No species of wild plant produces a flower or blossom that is absolutely black. So far none has been developed artificially.

9. Camel milk has 10 times more iron than cow's milk.

10. Catnip can work on lions and tigers as well as house cats. Catnip excites them because it contains a chemical that mimics a dominate female's urine.
