This is the random fact thread. Ready, go!


In Baltimore, Maryland, it is not legal to take a lion to the movies.

Wolves can go days on end without food. They can also eat 20 pounds of meat in a single sitting.

Health regulators estimated that up to 93 percent of silicone breast implants ruptured within 10 years.

A new study found that male monkeys will give up their juice rewards in order to ogle pictures of female monkey's bottoms. The way the experiment was set up, the act is akin to paying for the images, the researchers say.

In the past few decades 90% of the big fish in the oceans have been eaten, or otherwise disposed of.
There is an ant in Brazil that has a gland which causes the ant to explode like a bomb, spraying a sticky toxic goo on everybody nearby.

And speaking of ants:

In the ant kingdom some ants are soldiers, or army ants. These soldier ants are so genetically designed to fight, pinch, clamp and sting that their giant pinchers prevent them from feeding themselves. They must rely on other ants to feed them.

·Ants are vicious, merciless survival machines. They breed special castes of large, powerful soldiers. Along with soldiers, workers will fight for the survival of the colony, not giving a thought for personal safety or survival. Some ants even use chemical propaganda in warfare. When ants fight, there is no surrender, no mercy, no peace. They kill all the enemies and eat their babies. If it is necessary to the survival of the colony, ants will eat their own babies. Some ants steal the eggs and larvae of other species and raise them as slaves.

In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them to mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's."

2012 is expected to be year of great positive change. It is not the end of the world! Back in 1899 something was identified called Schumann Cavity Resonance. It is the heart beat or frequency of the Earth. Since its discovery till 1986 this heart beat frequency was constant 7.8 Hertz per second. From 1986 it started to raise dramatically and in 1998 it was reported to be 10 hertz per second. On other hand magnetics of the earth are dropping dramatically and it is expected they will reach zero point in 2012. Maya calendar and other calendars end in 2012, but it is not the end of the world just beginning of the new one since every 26000 years Earth goes through grand cycle of evolution.
