Very Interesting Facts



Once read that a kangaroo can't jump Unless its tail is touching the ground I've tried it and I couldn't jump either I too, was literally earth bound Heaviest land mammal is the elephant Weighing around 8,000 pounds Me mum-in-law comes in a close second Those booms are her walking around A quarter has 119 grooves on its edge A dime has only 118 grooves Bet you'll be able to sleep well tonight This information tends to soothe A whale's heart beats 9 times a minute Faster when they're having sex Imagine the picture you guys are having Afterwards, smoking a cigarette It's a little known fact that baby robins Eat 14 feet of worms a day Imagine the heartburn these guys have Need lotsa Pepto Bismol I'd say If you ever decide to walk to the sun It would take you about 2000 years If someone started back in 14 A.D. They're just about to burn up, I fear In Turkey, back in the 16th century Drinking coffee could get you hanged Imagine if they killed you for that today Populations would drop with a bang Every 8 seconds, a new baby is born Every 14 seconds there's a death I suggest we all should stop having sex Coz we won't have any space left! © Jack Ellison 2013

    14 feet of worms? Well that's shocking! It's hard to imagine those birdies digesting that much food at once, in just a day. I appreciate what you're doing here because you actually have to do some research before getting down to write. That's dedication, my friend!

    A very entertaining list of information here! And, truthfully, nobody is going to stop having sex. Ever. Great job! :)

    Jack... Jack... Jack... The heaviest mammal is the dragon sleeping on my shored up couch... with a bottle of barbecue sauce in his hands... He's a bit territorial and won't let me on it.... Dumb dragon... I Wonder if a dragon tail can be lite up? Are they fire proof, too?... Hmmm... Might make a good science experiment for our schools yearly Science Fair... Don't you think? Snicker...
