I had so much fun yesterday I thought I’d continue with more interesting but totally useless information. Enjoy.

  • The worlds largest pancake was cooked in England measuring 15 meters in diameter, weighed 3 tons, and contained approximately 2 million calories.
  • “Lucifer” is Latin for “light-bringer”.
  • One twenty-fifth of the energy released by an incandescent light bulb is light. The rest is heat.
  • A “rusticle” is a rust formation similar to an icicle. It occurs under water when wrought iron rusts, as on shipwrecks.
  • One ton of iron will produce a ton and a half of rust.

  • The fly of a pair of jeans is the fold of cloth over the zipper, not the zipper itself.
  • Twinkies are 68% air and 32% Twinkie stuff, which means you can pack three Twinkies in the same space taken up by only one.
  • Throughout it’s lifetime, an elephant goes through six sets of teeth. The elephant starves to death once the sixth set of teeth falls out.
  • The Spanish exclamation “Ole!” commonly heard at bullfights and flamenco dances, comes from Allah, meaning “Praise be to God”.
  • The average lifespan of an NHL hockey puck is 7 minutes. Those that don’t fly into the stands are removed because they warm up from friction and bounce on the ice. Game pucks are chilled to -10 degrees Fahrenheit for maximum performance. They are kept in a freezer in the penalty box.

BE HAPPY, IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY
