The tongue of a mature Blue Whale has approximately the same mass as that of an entire adult elephant.

The first man to die during planning & construction of the Hoover Dam was the father of the last man to die during its construction.

A greenfly born on a Tuesday can be a grandparent by Friday

One gallon of used motor oil can ruin approximately one million gallons of fresh water!

In 1943, Navy officer Grace Hopper had to fix a computer glitch caused by a moth, hence the term 'computer bug'.

Turtles can breath through their bottoms.

The longest one-syllable word in the English language is screeched

The sound you hear when macho people crack their knuckles is actually the sound of nitrogen gas bubbles bursting.

You can't kill yourself by holding your breath.

^ok..who wants to prove that one wrong .....

Sadly I know many who have tried.

The producers of Star Wars originally wanted to make it a children's breakfast show, so sure were they it wouldn't work.

At the height of its power in 400 BC, the Greek city of Sparta had 25,000 citizens and 500,000 slaves.
Okay, this definitely isn't true. I think there were barely 2000 male citizens by the end of the Peloponessian Wars, and a lot of serfs had either died in battle or been freed. There would have hardly been 500,000 people in Greece at the time, let alone a town like Sparta!

Just clarifying.

What is more interesting about this is that the Incas actually made wooden toys that had wheels on them, but never used them practically.

Just saying that they were capable of understanding the idea, and never bothered with it - not that they were ignorant.

There was more than just dense jungle in the Inca territory, too.
