Amazing Facts



An ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain Much like some people I know Snails can sleep for 3 years without eating I'm ravenous in an hour or so A pregnant goldfish is known as a twit That's a sight I've never yet seen A giraffe can clean its ears with its tongue Wondering what else it can clean The youngest Pope was eleven years old Barely toilet trained they say Most lipstick contains stinky fish scales From kissing I'm staying away Originally Coca Cola was green in colour It surely turned off a lot of folks The dot over the letter “i” is called a tittle I'm not kidding, it isn't a joke Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland Coz he didn't wear anything below Mel Blanc who was the voice of Bugs Bunny Was allergic to carrots I'm told “I am” is the shortest sentence in english “I'm not” runs a very close second A Saudi Arabian woman can get a divorce Without coffee in bed from her husband A “jiffy” is just a hundredth of a second I'll be back in a “jiffy” as they say Sometimes it can stretch to an hour or more So now what would you call it I pray © Jack Ellison 2013 What's 111,111,111 times 111,111,111 Answer 12,345,678,987,654,321 Now that's AMAZING!!!

    Very educational. These are the types of facts I like to know, they are great conversation starters! Did you know Beethoven was almost completely deaf when he composed his Moonlight Sonata? The only fact in this one that I already knew was the Coca Cola was green... you should write more of these, very fun to read!
