Sea water weighs about a pound and a half more per cubic foot than fresh water at the same temperature.

A palindrome is a sentence or group of sentences that reads the same backwards as it does forward: Ex: 'Red rum, sir, is murder.' 'Ma is as selfless as I am.' 'Nurse, I spy gypsies. Run!' 'A man, a plan, a canal - Panama.' 'He lived as a devil, eh?'

You guys are off on the frozen Niagara Falls. http://www.niagaraparks.com/media/ni...s-stopped.html
Difference between. It being frozen over and Ice bridge

The thumbnail grows the slowest, the middle nail the fastest, nearly 4 times faster than toenails.

Inventor of the sewing machine Elias Howe said the cannibals who chased him in his nightmares held spears that looked like the needle he then designed. I guess nightmares aren’t always bad.

You are 180 times more likely to be killed by bees than a Black Bear, and 160,000 times more likely to be killed in a car accident.

The sails of the Mayflower were made from hemp, along with the founding documents. They were written on with quill pens and Black Walnut ink. Had they used modern processes, they would have desintagrated(?) over 100 years ago (but I may have said this already, I don't remember lol).

Penguins have no official group name, though waddle is most commonly agreed on. They can also be called a raft when swimming together, as they apear to be a raft floating in the water. When fully assembled, they form colonies.

Not really a fact, but a probability. And probabilities like these have too many variables to have any validity.

For instance, if you were walking alone in the Yukon wilderness during the spring, I'd say you have a greater chance to get killed by a black bear than a car.

Or if you stand in the middle of a golf course with you 9 iron pointed at the lightning storm overhead, I'd say your chances of getting struck by lightning are greater than 1/1,000,000

Interesting concept.

Yet one could argue that statistically speaking, Americans at large are <insert above bear comment>. The statistics are a fact, and divided amongst the population it does work out that way.... just being devils advocate... some people will go tickle a bears belly while plenty more never leave the city. Just how it is, but yes, you are right. Or at least aren't wrong. And of course, no matter where you go, look both ways for Jeeps. No tellin where those guys will run ya over, lmao.

Bridges can begin to freeze at 36 degrees, and some BMW models make an audible chime at 36 just for this reason.

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

The flea can jump 350 times its body length, that is like a 6 foot-tall human jumping the length of 7 football fields

Honey is the only food consumed by humans that has been found to not spoil. In fact, honey found in ancient Egyptian tombs was sampled by archaeologists and deemed edible.

All of the clocks in the movie "Pulp Fiction" are stuck on 4:20.

Ok this is funny!! My hubby just explained to me what the significance of 4:20 is. I always tell him the useless fact that I posted. His reply was "Quentin Tarantino is a genius" to which I replied "what do you mean?"

The fact that all of the clocks in the movie Pulp Fiction are stuck on 4:20 is actually NOT a fact.

While many clocks in the Movie were at 4:20, Jimmie Dimmick's kitchen clock is at 8:17 (Dimmick is the character that Tarantino plays).
