DID YOU KNOW????? Thursday

Yep its that time again for
DID YOU KNOW????? Thursday
So lets jump right in..

Did you Know: that at 7:35 am Eastern time NASA is BOMBING the Moon?

Did you Know: That you can actually buy land on the moon. ( probably not a good idea, seeing how they are BOMBING IT...)

Did you Know: the Earth is not round; it is slightly pear-shape

Did you Know: The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets

Did you Know: The white part of your fingernail is called the lunula

Did you Know: People who chase after rare birds are called twitchers ( this is funny to me. I thought people who were on drugs were called this. )

Did you Know: The practice of eating insects is called entomophagy
For instance, 100 grams of cricket contains only 121 calories, less than half of beef. A cricket contains only 5,5 grams of fat, compared to 21,2g of beef. Beef contains more protein (23,5g - a cricket 12.9g) but the 100g of cricket also contains 5,1g of carbohydrates, 75,8 mg calcium, 185,3 mg phosphorous, 9,5 mg iron, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.

So I guess eating bugs is a great DIET.

Did you Know: If a soup or stew is too salty, add raw cut potatoes. Discard them after they have cooked - they will have absorbed the salt.

Did you Know: In every episode of Seinfeld there is a Superman somewhere

Did you Know: Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing. ( so basically all you folks out there with Large ears and Nose's are well.... SCREWED... Sorry )
