Fun Facts

As many of us return from summer vacation and students return to school our lives begin to develop a new routine. We drag ourselves out of the summer slump and back to the grind. To keep things lighthearted, I thought it would be entertaining to send you a list of fun facts. Enjoy!

  • A banana is technically a berry. A raspberry is not.
  • A raspberry is an aggregate fruit, consisting of a cluster of tiny stone fruits.
  • A blue whale’s heart is roughly the size of a Volkswagen Beetle, and its aorta is large enough for a human to crawl through.
  • All the American flags on the moons have been bleached white by radiation from the sun.
  • Because it takes so long for their light to reach Earth, many of the stars you see at night are long gone.
  • Bottlenose dolphins have the longest memory among non-humans – they can recognize whistles of their mates after being separated for more than 20 years.
  • Coyotes and badgers will hunt together. The badger digs up the prey and the coyote runs it down.
  • Every human is born with the ability to wiggle their ears. If you don’t discover it early, the muscle atrophies.
  • High atmospheric pressure affects the bubbles in your coffee. If the bubbles are closer to the center, expect rain or stormy weather.
  • It took the radio 38 years to reach 50 million people, 20 years for the telephone, 13 years for the television, 3.6 years for Facebook and it took Google Plus 88 days.
  • The deepest part of the ocean is estimated to be 36,200 feet. That’s almost the length of 37 Eiffel Towers.
  • There are more possible games of chess than there are atoms in the known universe.
  • There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on Earth.
  • There have been over 200 flavors of Kit-Kat in Japan.

Wishing you a successful transition back into your routine.
