Polar bears have black skin and transparent fur instead of white.

Owls can't digest fur and bones so they cough them back up in a bundle called a pellet.

 Anime specifically refers to Japanese commercial animation. Anime is different from conventional animation due to the fact that Japanese creators were never bound by the 20th-century convention that animation was something solely for children. Anime is a broad medium that ranges from the purely innocent to the pornographic. Some of it fetishizes young girls. In Japan the manga, anime, video game, television and media industries are all interrelated. Many popular manga characters find their way into video games and anime DVDs.

Did you know that Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is a licensed commercial airline pilot? 

And here's another bonus fact for you: Bruce also flew a Fokker Tri-plane in a dog fight reenactment over the Sonisphere metal festival on the 100th anniversary of the day the first world War started. 

Metal Hammer magazine would rate the event an 11/10.

Okay, go back to thinking happy thoughts now.

Everybody is related; we all have a common ancestor. It's just that 99.999999+% of us are very distantly related.

I actually knew about polar bears. Years ago at the Philadelphia zoo, the polar bears looked all green. A zoo employee told us that it was because algae grew in their hollow hair. It didn't hurt them, but it looked icky! I heard about the owl thing too. I read somewhere that it you find a pellet (EW!) you can take it apart and glue the bones back together!

Now for my random fact. It's another nasty animal tidbit.

 

Rats can not vomit. It's why rat poison works.

 

YUCK!

Each row in Pascal's triangle represents the powers of 11 (with carrying, obviously). :twismile:

Image result for pascal's triangle

0th row 1= 11^0

1st row 11= 11^1

2nd row 121= 11^2

3rd row 1331= 11^3

4th row 14641= 11^4

5th row 15(10)1051 = 161051 = 11^5

 

That's only to row 5... :P
