    Crocodiles actually have no life span. If they lived in a perfectly suited environment with no predators/diseases etc. they would live forever. It's a process called negligible Senescence.

    It is a myth that you lose most of your body heat through your head.
    The myth is thought to have arisen through a flawed interpretation of a vaguely scientific experiment by the US military in the 1950s. In those studies, volunteers were dressed in Arctic survival suits and exposed to bitterly cold conditions. Because it was the only part of their bodies left uncovered, most of their heat was lost through their heads.

    Farting helps reduce high blood pressure and is good for your health

    carbon dioxide once made up 100% of our atmosphere. ever since plants developed it's been decreasing continously. today's it's hardly detected in our atmosphere and is only a trace gas less than 0.4% and it can not increase because plants eat it up. so the more carbon the bigger and faster plants grows which makes them eat up more carbon. hence global warming because of carbon dioxide is a myth!

    If you put two rabbits in an average three bedroom house and left then there for a year. How many rabbits would you see at the end of the year?

    Many people think that Big Ben refers to the tower with the big clock in London, that is actually the Elizabeth Tower and Big Ben is the name of the large bell that chimes. Why the bell is called Big Ben has a few ideas, for example: it could be named after a boxer, this is when my paragraph goes silly... a boxer many years ago named Ben something.

    this year we wknt have a leap day thats what i heard anywayy

    The term freelance comes from medieval warfare literally a free lance was a knight for hire by any lord.

    The term going off half cocked comes from dueling as the steward was meant to inspect, load and cock the pistols prior to handing them to the duelists thus it was always best to check that you gun was loaded and fully cocked before you walked off to fire it, i.e going off half cocked.

    The term flash in the pan comes from misfiring muskets, as the flint striker hit the pan when the trigger was pulled, if your black powder was damp and couldn't fire the gun all you'd get was a flash in the pan.

    If a female kangaroo is being chased by a predator and she has a joey in her pouch, she will throw the joey away to distract the pursuer. For this reason, kangaroos typically produce two fertilized eggs but hold one in reserve.

    Military salutes derived from british soldiers who used to remove their headgear when passing an officer.. towards the 18th century it moved on to raising a hand to the brim of their headgear as a mark of respect. In the Navy however they turn their hand inwards and show the back of their hand, as the "deckhands" used to have mucky palms so as not to show disrespect they showed the back of their hand instead

    bit longwinded i know!
