This isn't really a game or a contest,it's just where we can post any fun fact that we come across. I'll start out with this: did you know that red chili peppers have 3 times the Vitamin C of Oranges & twice the Iron of spinach? Maybe the Humans should start their day with a glass of Jalapeno Juice,& Popeye should scarf down some Habaneros before he beats somebody up!thinking Anybody else got a Fun Fact to know & tell?

Did you know you can eat flowers?
Yes Pansy, Violoas, Nasturiums, and Daylilies, and Squash Blossoms.
They are great in salads as well as pretty.
Daylilies and Squash Blossom are great as tempura or you can stuff them with cream cheese. Give them a try! wave

The teddy bear is named for President Theodore Roosevelt. Legend has it he came across an injured and exhausted bear and spared its life, thus it became known as Teddy's bear. (While he didn't shoot the bear, he believed it was in too much pain, so he had someone else do it.)

The woodpeckers tongue is so long(in many cases as long as the woodpecker itself), that it is not attached to the woodpecker's head as in most birds, but instead it curls back up around its skull, allowing it to be so long. Once the woodpecker locates an insects tunnel in a tree, it worms its tongue into the tunnel to try to locate the grub. The tongue of the woodpecker is long and ends in a barb. With its tongue the woodpecker skewers the grub and draws it out of the trunk.

I am truly meowless over this..mol..

What makes thunder? ~ The air around a lightning bolt is superheated to about five times the temperature of the Sun . This sudden heating causes the air to expand faster than the speed of sound, which compresses the air and forms a shock wave; we hear it as thunder.
