1.This is some useless information but interesting: There was 21,446 buttock augmentations performed in USA in 2014. That number is 86.1 percent increase from 2013.
So I guess there is a lot more different shaped bums walking around the place.
2.When sea water freezes into sea ice, it releases its salt and becomes a brinicle, also known as ‘The Icy Finger of Death’
These ice stalactites are created under sea ice when cold, saline water is introduced to an area of ocean water. At the time of its creation, a brinicle resembles a pipe of ice reaching down from the underside of a layer of sea ice.
As the sea water freezes, it pushes out impurities, including salt. This makes the water surrounding the pipe more saline, and more dense, so it starts to sink. As the dense water flows down, some of it freezes and creates the finger-like shape that’s characteristic of the brinicle.
3. Chinese troops train to stand motionless for at least one hour. Refrain from swaying for the next hour and not collapse after the 3rd hour.They cannot blink for 40 seconds and have needles poking through their shirt collars to keep correct posture.
4. In your life time your heart will beat over 2.5 billion times, In one day, The blood travels a total of 19,000 km (12,000 miles)—that’s four times the distance across the US from coast to coast.

Valerie Taylor is a well know Australian diver. I have no idea how old she is but for most of my life I can remember her and the adventures she had and wished I could have been part of it. She was always this gorgeous blonde in a swim suit or diving suit. In fact she was probably the first Australian female diver that made a name for herself studying sharks and many animals of the sea. She is a great advocate of the protection of sharks and all animals of the ocean for that matter. She basically has spent most of her life under the water filming many great documentaries on the subject. This story is fascinating.
This was in NZ yesterday. That guy obviously does not know the road rules of surfing. He does now
I remember this day it was almost 10 years ago
I had red hair, new boobs, that’s how I know
My friend Cindy she passed away 2 days ago, in the night
Beautiful Cindy, pure delight, God Why? It is so not right
I am trying not to weep but the tears just flow
She would not want sadness, they say she is at peace, I know, I know
But my heart hurts and I cannot help that choking feeling
She wont be there when I get back to Australia, that’s what I am dealing
Outrigger Paddling she loved and that’s how we met
Some curly-headed mates in the picture above, we all had fun you bet
She loved the freedom the feeling of the ocean
She was talented, creative, her family, her devotion
She leaves behind Grandchildren who will not know her as we knew
But I know she has left them things to remember, as she bid adieu
Well Cindy, you have passed, and our lives move forward in great stride
Till we meet again for sure on the other side
When I get back to Australia I will buy a bottle of champagne for two
Will sit in your beautiful garden by the pool and drink it just me and you
From 100 To Zero

Well here I am ‘ Back in the USA’
Sounds like a Springsteen Song I have to say
I left Australia just last week, very warm and sunny
If my friends could see me now they would think it rather funny
I had a tan that I worked very hard to get
Only to be wrapped up in winter woollies, body not seen the sun yet
Woke up yesterday to icicles on the trees
No sign of spring flowers that are usually covered in bees
But I am grateful as the house is nice and warm
Cold outside, at least now sunny no sign of a storm
As you can see from the pictures, my Son and Grandson
Loving the warmth, the ocean in Australia and having such fun
I am not really complaining as I love this country and I am with my husband, my hero
Even though I have gone from temperatures of 100 degrees to Zero
I no longer have a fear of flying, as I have now flown several thousand miles so have more confidence these days. But I do respect the fact that I am thousands of feet above earth, and totaly rely on the pilots and of course the capability of the planes. In the case of these pictures you would have no option. I don’t know if you have seen these shots but I haven’t. I thought they were pretty amazing.
These are very interesting statistics.
I for one have a great love for water, I drink it, I love to live by it, I love to hear it, I love swimming in it, I love bathing in it, I love paddling on it, and one time when my life seemed very dark I believe the ocean kept me sane and of great comfort. I would sit on the beach and just feel it, watch it for hours.
I don’t know who wrote these words but they are well said.
In 1943 actress Greer Garson took five and a half minutes to say “thank-you” for winning the Oscar for best actress in the movie “Mrs Miniver”. Since that time the academy set a time limit for all acceptance speeches.
Elephants can not jump. It is physiologically impossible for them to do so, because of their weight. Circus tricks are not natural activities for elephants in the wild, and that they will step down from a platform, but will not jump.

More oil reaches the oceans each year as a result of leaking automobiles and other non-point sources than was spilled in Prince William Sound by the Exxon Valdez
Water pressure at the deepest point in the ocean is more than 8 tons per square inch, the equivalent of one person trying to hold 50 jumbo jets.
The worlds oceans contain nearly 20 million tons of gold
A swallow of seawater may contain millions of bacterial cells, hundreds of thousands of phytoplankton and tens of thousands of zooplankton
