Prey animals are uncomfortable moving through open spaces, since it leaves them open to attacks from predators, particularly birds that might swoop down on them from above.  They will usually prefer to go around the open space instead of through it, unless there's no cover around the sides.  In these cases, they will just dart through it quickly, and they would not take this risk for any other reason than to reach something on the opposite end.  Therefore, if a chicken crosses a road, you can guarantee it was to get to the other side.

Here's some darker facts.

 

In viking times there was a method of torture called the Blood Eagle,it was used by the vikings,it was for show really,but what they did was,they would flay the skin off your back just enough to expose the ribs,they would then break the ribs and turn them around to make it look like you had bloody wings,they also took your lungs out of your body so you would suffocate to death.

Ebola is contracted through bodily fluids touching another person,once inside the system,it begins to break down all living tissue inside the body,liver,lungs,kidneys,heart, and emulsifies it into just chunks,so you'd throw up your internal organs.

Harvard has an acceptance rate of around 4.7%. I would imagine that this is due to many applicants more than their extremely high selectiveness.

 

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has an acceptance rate of less than 2%.

 

There is no such thing as a free market - immigration restrictions are an example of regulations.

There are ten million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million particles in the known universe that we can observe.

 

=10*106*106*106*106*106*106*106*106*106 = 101+(6*9) = 1055 "particles".

While I applaud your attempt at trying to convey the stupendousness of the universe, your number is less than half as large as it should be.

 

The estimated mass of the universe is 1085 kilograms.

 

If the entire universe was made only of protons (essentially hydrogen gas), this would mean there would be [1085*1000 (grams/kg) * 6.022*1023 (atoms per gram, according to Avogadro's number)] =~ 6.022*10111 protons.

 

However, the universe is made of many kinds of particles, such as electrons and muons. Many of these particles we don't understand, so we can't really count them yet. In fact many kinds of particles we've never even seen before, such as virtual particles or whatever's responsible for dark energy. At least on the basis of electrons being very tiny and light compared to protons, the number of particles in the universe is probably a much larger number than the one I just gave.

Aparently, your team color can help determine your chances at winning if you dont make a conscous effert to think about it.

 

Red typically induces agression and/or fear, putting you at an advantage in games like halo, where you have to react quickly and the like.

Blue, however, induces calmness and logical thinking. This helps in games where you need to plan out your attack.

 

Of course, thats what they say. I tend to suck online either way. :lol:

Astronaut space suits have cooling systems that only work in vacuums. If they were in a pressurized environment like in an atmosphere, they would clog up with ice and slowly overheat the suit.
