In 1963, major league baseball pitcher Gaylord Perry remarked, “They’ll put a man on the moon before I hit a home run.” On July 20, 1969, an hour after Neil Armstrong set foot on the surface of the moon, Perry hit is first, and only, home run while playing for the San Francisco Giants.

5. A ten-year-old mattress weighs double what it did when it was new due to debris that it absorbs over time. That debris includes dust mites (their droppings and decaying bodies), mold, millions of dead skin cells, dandruff, animal and human hair, secretions, excretions, lint, pollen, dust, soil, sand, and a lot of perspiration

6. Ionized water such as Kangen water causes the body to produce more red cells and consequently increases oxygen carrying capacity. Smaller water clusters , absorption faster greater hydration💦

1. Volvo invented the three-point seatbelt, but opened up the patent to save as many lives as possible.

2. The Netherlands sends Canada thousands of flowers every year as thanks for help in WWII.

3. Libraries outnumber McDonald’s in the United States by over 8:1.

4. There are more trees on Earth than there are stars in the galaxy.

5. The British Military has a goat serving as a fusilier.
It is said that the use of goats as members of the military started after a wild one wandered about the battlefield during the American Revolutionary War in 1775, seemingly leading the Welsh regimental colours to victory at the Siege of Boston.

What Will Happen to Your Body When You Die?

I think this is a fantastic idea, Once the soul has left the body you are returning something to the earth, climate and beauty to the world.

  1. It does not matter what size the eyes happen to be on humans and animals alikee, longest eye lashes length are always 1/3 the width of the eyes. Apparently they are just the right length to minimize air flow over the eye-ball so it does not dry out and helps keep out the dust. Source

 

2. How to tell if the eggs you are about to purchase are fresh. 

The number next to the expiration date, say for example 268.This is the number of days in the year (25th September) when those eggs were placed in the carton. The sell by date is say 14th November. Those eggs have been in that carton for 45 days by that date. Not so fresh in my opinion.

The example above – 211 days is July 30 so by the sell by date those eggs will have been in the carton just under a month.

3. Richard Nixon once smuggled a suitcase full of weed through the airport for Louis Armstrong.

According to Snopes .

Supposedly true Louis Armstrong was flying back from Europe, and on the same plane was
then-Congressman Richard Nixon. Nixon was apparently a fan of Louis and
they chatted throughout the flight.

When they arrived in New York, Louis said to Nixon, listen I’m an old man
and I’ve got all this stuff to carry, why don’t you carry my trumpet for
me and help me out?

And that is the story of how Richard Nixon carried Louis Armstrong’s stash
of weed through customs at the New York airport

 

4. Now here is a word we can all use often with some people.  If someone gives opinions on topics they know nothing about, they’re an ultracrepidarian.

noun, adjective. beyond one’s knowledge or province; pertaining to opinions given on matters beyond one’s knowledge; also written ultra-crepidarian. Word Origin. from Latin ‘beyond the sole’. Source

5.  Earth used to be covered with giant mushrooms that were 24 feet tall and three feet wide, instead of trees.

From around 420 to 350 million years ago, when land plants were still the relatively new kids on the evolutionary block and “the tallest trees stood just a few feet high,” giant spires of life poked from the Earth. “The ancient organism boasted trunks up to 24 feet (8 meters) high and as wide as three feet (one meter),” said National Geographic in 2007.  With the help of a fossil dug up in Saudi Arabia scientists finally figured out what the giant creature was: a fungus. (We think.)

The towering fungus spires would have stood out against a landscape scarce of such giants, said New Scientist in 2007.

Global Warming? – Hmmm Not So Much

 

08-19_news_iceland

This is an article written by Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist plus many other letters after his name related to our Mother Earth. I believe it to be very interesting reading and maybe we should rethink a lot we have been sold via ‘Global warming’ and or ‘Climate Change’. 

You make up your own mind but I think not  Politician banging (well yes I am a bit)  but  I think I would rather listen to those who make it their life to study these things than Politicians that are swayed by those who will profit from our believing them (being the politicians).

Interesting reading 

 

BREATHE DEEPLY, (AND HOLD IT). 
Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne , professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide , and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland. Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet–all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress–it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50p light bulbs with £5 light bulbs….. well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days–yes, FOUR DAYS–by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time–EVERY DAY.

I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt. Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt. Pinatubo was active for over one year–think about it!!!!

Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change        scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’–you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past few years and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme–that whopping new tax–imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax……give the world a hug and have a nice day!”
