Damn Interesting Facts
Some really surprising an interesting facts that I came across recently. Some of them might be slightly exaggerated but hey, they are still damn interesting.


1.A rat can last longer without water than a camel.
2.Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks or it will digest itself.
3.The dot over the letter “i” is called a tittle.
4.A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top.
5.A female ferret will die if it goes into heat and cannot find a mate.
6.A duck’s quack doesn’t echo. No one knows why.
7.During the chariot scene in “Ben Hur,” a small red car can be seen in the distance (and Heston’s wearing a watch).
8.On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily! (That explains a few mysteries… .)
9.Donald Duck comics were banned from Finland because he doesn’t wear pants.
10.Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War II were made of wood.
11.The number of possible ways of playing the first four moves per side in a game of chess is 318,979,564, 000.
12.The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.
13.If one places a tiny amount of liquor on a scorpion, it will instantly go mad and sting itself to death. (Who was the sadist who discovered this??)
14.Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to s-l-o-w film down so you could see his moves. That’s the opposite of the norm.
15.The first CD pressed in the US was Bruce Springsteen’ s “Born in the USA.”
16.The original name for butterfly was flutterby.
17.The phrase “rule of thumb” is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn’t beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.
18.The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was Victrola, so the called themselves Motorola.
19. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand.
20. Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest
21.Chewing gum while peeling onions will keep you from crying.
22. Sherlock Holmes NEVER said, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”
23. The glue on Israeli postage is certified kosher.
24. The Guinness Book of Records holds the record for being the book most often stolen from public libraries.
25. Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a spacesuit damages them.

[/color]6.A duck’s quack doesn’t echo. No one knows why.

i saw a video last year, and they showed that a duck's quack does echo, its very low, just like elephants communicate in very low frequency, and they can be heard from many miles away using special instruments  :happy: i can't remember clearly,, i just remember the key words  :pagel:

The irony is most scientific videos are made by people without any scientific background. And a professional video maker never fogets to embed some magical effects to make it more interesting.
