- 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

me and help me out?

of weed through customs at the New York airport

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.

1. What Brassica vegetables are:
These vegetables rank among the top 10 healthiest and give you the most folate which is a B vitamin which is naturally present in these vegetables and an important vitamin for pregnant woman.
