Right … It’s Friday and it’s time to … PIN BACK YOUR LUGHOLES (ears) …. for you are going to be Educationamalised!
Factoids for your Friday Fun …
A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top.
It is impossible to out-swim a shark .
The slowest fish is the Sea Horse, which moves along at about 0.016 km/h (0.01 mph).
The tongue of a blue whale is as long as an elephant
A snail has two pairs of tentacles on its head. One pair is longer than the other and houses the eyes. The shorter pair is used for smelling and feeling its way around.
In the Sahara Desert, there is a town named Tidikelt, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically though, the driest place on earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for two million years.
A house fly lives only 14 days. (but not if Mr.Cobs and his fly swat is near!)
Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world’s ice covers Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it) Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.
Istanbul, Turkey is the only city in the world located on two continents.
In the United States: The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.
An Anagram of:
“To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”
“In one of the Bard’s best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet, queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten”
Fake trees were invented by a company who made toilet bowl brushes, the Addis Brush Company. Regardless of how far the technology has come, it’s still interesting to know the first fake Christmas trees were really just big green toilet bowl brushes.
Did you know… The can opener was invented 48 years after cans were introduced!
My Contract states that I HAVE to leave you with a smile or a chuckle if it tickles you in the right place. So …. here goes:
Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man, was drafted by the Army.
On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair.
On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon the Army dentist yanked out seven of his teeth.
On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap.
The Army has been looking for Herman for 51 years.
Happy Friday my lovely blogging friends. If you’ve got this far and are still
alive reading then I’m so proud of you for getting through the whole course and your certificate is in the post. You are now far more Educationamalised than you were a little while ago.
I’m wishing you a truly fabulous Friday, and a truly terrific weekend.
Enjoy every moment of it. Don’t wait for another day. Don’t put off doing something until you’ve lost 10lbs. Don’t bother about the spot on your chin. Don’t worry that you don’t feel you have the right outfit. Who cares if you’ll be by yourself doing ‘it’ – walking in the park; Taking photo’s of the ducks on the lake; Shopping for something or other. Just do it. Don’t put it off. Do it today. Now. Or … this weekend.
Take care of yourself … and each other. And … whatever you decide to do with your weekend or where-ever you decided to go … may your God go with you.
