Cats often rub up against people and furniture to lay their scent and mark their territory. They do it this way, as opposed to the way dogs do it, because they have scent glands in their faces.

Under the right conditions, aluminum has been shown to "heal" minor scratches due to it's crystalline structure.  The scratch does have to be VERY minor. Practically microscopic. 


Theodore Roosevelt's family pets consist of the following: a small bear named Jonathan Edwards; a lizard named Bill; guinea pigs named Admiral Dewey, Dr. Johnson, Bishop Doane, Fighting Bob Evans, and Father O'Grady; Maude the pig; Josiah the badger; Eli Yale the blue macaw; Baron Spreckle the hen; a one-legged rooster; a hyena; a barn owl; Peter the rabbit; and Algonquin the pony.

 

I get the distinct feeling that Teddy Roosevelt would have been a brony, if the show existed back then!

If you want to put the age of the Pyramids of Giza into a little perspective. The Pyramids of Giza are to the Romans what the Romans are to us at the moment. So when you think about the Romans and the Roman Empire, you think "wow, that's pretty long ago" right? That's exactly how the Romans would've thought about the Pyramids of Giza.

Uh.. That is a day. In fact, it's two days and little bit more. A day is 24 hours long.

You are in fact, actually in a cave tied up, looking at a wall with a fire behind you and all you see is shadows of people putting statues of things that actually do exist in the outside world, but you have been tied up in the cave since you were born and the only real tree for you is the shadow of the sculpture of the tree put up by someone.

Although most people just think of "plastic" as one kind of material, there are hundreds of varieties of plastics, some of which are recyclable and some which aren't. Plastics are actually more varied than wood.

during ww2 nazi gemany used petrol engines instead of diesel engines in all of its tanks, the reason behind this is petrol engines require less parts and therefor are easier to mass produce.
this lead to engine overheating and high fuel consumption, for larger tanks like the 57 ton tiger 1 and the 68 ton tiger II running out of fuel was a major problem and lead the to destruction of many unrecoverable vehicles by their crews to prevent them falling into the hands of the advancing allied armies.

Have you noticed the cutie map glitch at the start of MLP epesode 12 in season 6? It's like it's running a bootup process. So is Loran Foust hinting something about equestria that we don't see?

  • There are 10 glaciers on Mount Adams, 12 on Mount Hood, and 25 on Mount Rainier.

Washington is the most glaciated state in the contiguous U.S.

Colorado does not have the most rugged set of mountains in the U.S., that honor goes to Washington's very own North Cascades. ;)

Multnomah Falls, Oregon, is not the second highest perennial waterfall in the U.S., contrary to local tourist guides. (Again, WA boasts this title xD)

Fluttershy is best poni. Fact.  :squee:
