1. Half the atoms inside your body came from across the universe.

They found that in galaxies with 100 billion stars or more, the galactic winds actually ferried in about 50 per cent of the matter present today.
Jessica Werk at the University of Washington in Seattle – Werk says tracking the flow of matter from the origin of the universe to present day, and understanding where the atoms that make up the air we breathe and water we drink is one of the fundamental problems in astrophysics. “It’s one of the holy grails of extra galactic cosmology,” she says. “Now, we’ve found that half these atoms come from outside our galaxy.”

Faucher-Giguère and Anglés-Alcázar Northwestern University in Illinois  found that for larger galaxies like our own, this intergalactic Gulf Stream is the primary contributor to their growth, allowing them to snatch away matter from their smaller counterparts.

2. Back when people burnt coal to heat their homes they rid the soot off their walls by rolling dough across the walls.

The Story goes: Kutol, a Cincinnati based soap company, was about to go under in the late 1920s.  Cleo McVicker, just 21 years old. 1933 when Cleo was at a meeting with Kroger grocery store representatives when they asked him if he made wallpaper cleaner. In those days coal was used for heating ones home as wood was less efficient. The down side of coal was the soot that it left on the walls and wallpaper.

Cleo boldly told them he could supply them with such a cleaner having no idea what they were going to do as at that time things had become desperate financially. Kroger subsequently ordered 15,000 cases of wallpaper cleaner from Kutol with a $5,000 penalty (about $90,000 today) if Kutol didn’t deliver on time.

Noah McVicker his brother then figured out that dough was the solution and that kept the company afloat till after WWII. Sales then started to decrease as coal was no long the main use for heating and the company once again was facing financial ruin.

Hence Play doh!

5. ” Tsunami Stones” are an ancient warning written on Stone.  – Some over 600 years old that lie on the northeast coast of Japan.

The reason for this is they like saliva is they like the enzymes in the saliva. All animals seek enzymes such as lions when capture their prey they always first start eating the internal organs. Eskimos who live insecurely cold areas where hardly any plants grow, always eat the internal organs of their captured seal first. Source Hiromi Shinya,MD

4. Mr. Allen Swift: Born – 1908 – Died 2010
This man owned and drove the same car for 82 years.
Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years?
Mr. Allen Swift ( Springfield , Massachusetts ) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new – as a graduation gift in 1928.

He drove it up until his death in 2010… At the age of 102.
He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
82 years – That’s approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month).

1,070,000 that’s miles not kilometres.

1. Some interesting facts about a few American political candidates. Well interesting for some and maybe not others.

220px-Abolafiapostera.  In 1975, Emil Matalik put himself forward as US Presidential candidate. He advocated a maximum of one animal and
one tree per family because he believed that there were too many animals and plant life on earth.

b. Louis Abalofia also put himself forward: his campaign poster featured a photo of him in the nude, with the slogan “I have nothing to hide.”

c. In the 1860s, financier George Francis Train ran for office with one item: the introduction of a new calender based
on his birth date. He stood for the position of Dictator of the United States, charged admission fees to his campaign rallies, and drew record crowds. He became a vegetarian and adopted various fads in succession. Instead of shaking hands with other people, he shook hands with himself, the manner of greeting he had seen in China.

2. When Helium is cooled to almost absolute zero (-460°F or -273°C), the  lowest temperature possible, it becomes a liquid with surprising  properties: it flows against gravity and will start running up and over the lip of a glass container!

 It will suddenly be able to do things that other fluids can’t, like dribble through molecule-thin cracks, climb up and over the sides of a dish, and remain motionless when its container is spun.

“If you set [down] a cup with a liquid circulating around and you come back 10 minutes later, of course it’s stopped moving,” says John Beamish, an experimental physicist at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Atoms in the liquid will collide with one another and slow down. “But if you did that with helium at low temperature and came back a million years later,” he says, “it would still be moving.

3. If Betelgeuse (one of the brightest stars in Earth’s sky) would explode transiting from the red super giant stage to supernova then our sky would light continuously for two months. It can happen anytime, within a couple of thousand years, tomorrow or even now..Betelgeuse lies some 430 light-years from Earth. Betelgeuse has a luminosity about 10,000 times that of the Sun and its radius is calculated to be about 370 times that of the sun.

2. There is a spider in Brazil whose bites can cause an erection that lasts for Hours.
Banana spider or Phoneutria nigriventer – is native to South and Central America.
The venom of the Phoneutria nigriventer spider is a very rich mixture of several molecules.

These molecules are called toxins, and then we have various toxins in this venom with different activity.

Because of this, when a human is bitten by this spider, many different symptoms appear including priapism, a condition in which the penis is continually erect.’

Other side-effects on top of the long-painful erections include loss of muscle control, severe pain, difficulty breathing and if its victim is not treated with anti-venom, could lead to death due to oxygen deprivation.

Poem Friday – If I Employed Me I Would Have Me Sacked

If I Employed Me I Would Have Me Sacked
Author: Lesley voth

Well here it is Friday again
Another week and still no rain

But the Temperature is cooler and a gorgeous day
Its Mother Natures gift to us in a way

This week has gone way too fast
Did not complete my book, but getting close at last

The more I think I am finished, almost complete
I think about what is in the fridge, oh something nice to eat

I need to knuckle down, get my head on straight
oh I need to have a shower, Im off to the movies, Im running late

Too many things on the go and I get side tracked
If I employed me I think I would have me sacked
