Not a friggin clue.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah

speaking of oceans....the entire population of the Earth would fit into a cube, one mile on all sides. you could then take that cube and drop it in the middle of either the Atlantic or the Pacific, and it would not raise the sea levels of the surrounding coastlines by more than one inch.

If the 4.6. billion y,o, Earth's time of existence were compressed into one 24-hour day, and you began the clock running at midnight last night, Mankind--even our earliest ancestors, like homo erectus--will not come on the scene until 11:59:50 tonight!

What? That number is WAAY to high, my friend. You either read it wrong or have a severe typo. How could it possibly be that one out of 16 humans who have ever lived are alive today? LOL. Hell, not even that many from humans who were born in the 20th Century are alive today.

Didja know that frogs never drink and water?? Not one drop, for their entire lives! Seems that ALL the water they intake is done through osmosis, through their skin.

Based on the generally accepted figure of ~110 billion humans having existed. 7 bil is about 6.5% of that.

That is actually a little alarming seeing all the electronics around him. Maybe they are all waterproofed.

The Big Bang isn't a "place . . . to find a singularity" -- rather, per the Lambda-CDM model, the *universe* was a singularity 13.8 billion years ago.

Now for the bad part: We cognitively process or are aware of only about 40!

I ate more than that in one motorcycle ride from here (AZ) to California, through the desert farmland, wearing no helmet, .. but I guess that's not average, .. or normal. Normal people would pull over the next available McDonalds and eat there, then put on their helmet before riding.

But those fat juicy cream-filled kind were quite satisfying!

Thanks VV!!! Did I miss anything good! (My band did a summer-end tour for two weeks; had 10 gigs, in CA; NM; and AZ. (I took a 2-wk vacay form work here at the VA).
Lots of fun.

All righty then! Since my field is Psych most if not all of my Interesting Facts are gonna be about the Human Brain. (Y'all remember that thing, don't ya? LOL)

OK.....here's two little nuggets to chew on..........Yawning is the body"s way of cooling down an overheated brain. See, when your brain doesn't get enough oxygen, the yawn provides the oxygen it needs. Anoxic brain damage is brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen supply. And of course, with zero oxygen, brain cells will start to die in about five minutes.

Also...........your brain consists of around 170,000 miles of blood vessels, which Provide blood and that oxygen to the brain. The vessels in your brain could wrap around the Earth about 8 Times!!! Wow!

By watching the movement of stars and the bending of light. We know theres is a black hole at the centre of our own galaxy because of how the stars there move. That being said they still are ridiculously hard to find.

Not touching that one. I promised myself after the last incident that I would never let myself be tricked into a dialectic about evolution on this site again. Tej can take this one if he wants.

Well to get to the point, it would look like Green Eyes on the last few Planet of the Apes movies. I'm sure that's why they made these new movies to keep people 'believing', that it is possible. You know, like Peter Pan and all the Disney movies, to keep believing in magic, and we know there is no greater magic in the world today then the Evolution Story. Just as they mention those 'key words' in nature documentaries like: 65 million years ago, dinosaurs, T-Rex, .. etc. When showing monkeys the key words are: "Our earlier ancestors", .. etc. But I don't want to get into that to derail the thread.

Thanks tejretics.
