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.

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.

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

There are several times more parking spots than people in the US, at least 2.5 billion parking spaces. This means that every American on average gets around 8 parking spots. A lot of these are due to parking minimums and why some American cities look like this.
