(A New Feature brought to you by Iris Einstein)
Crimmie teases me mercilessly on this, but I can’t help it. I just have this thing of collecting utterly useless facts—such as the weight of an elephant’s testicles (1 kg – though I’m not sure if that’s for the pair, or just for the one); and (a far more interesting fact, this) the last foot of an elephant’s penis is prehensile. What, you thought sexual fun was the exclusive preserve of we humans?
But to more serious facts.
Utterly Useless Fact #1:
Light travels 18,000,000,000 times faster than rain.
Which means you see the water-filled drops 18 millions times sooner than you feel their icy-cold splatter. You might like to think of that next time you’re caught out in the rain without an umbrella.
Have a nice day.
