Saturday; Trivia Oddities;

The odd, fantasy, bizarre;  by Jacek Yerka;
I think it is wonderful to see paintings  that take you completely out of the ordinary everyday.

Here are a few trivia tidbits which we usually do not encounter in our every day life!

Did you know?

The dot over the letter 'i' is called a tittle.

 An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

 A pregnant goldfish is called a twit.

A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds

. Cranberries are sorted for ripeness by bouncing them; a fully ripened cranberry can be dribbled like a basketball

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, while dogs only have about ten.

Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian seal for that reason

I wish that my room had a floor
I don't care so much for a door
But this running around  without touching the ground
Is getting to be such a bore!

If this does not make your day, I do not know what will!
