There is more water in the Jovian moon Europa than there is on Earth.

 

Many high-altitude railroads, such as some of those in India, Tibet, Argentina, Chile and Kenya still use steam locomotives. This is because internal combustion engines like diesel and gasoline have performance loss at lower pressures. External combustion (like in steam engines) are not affected by outside pressure, and have reliable power at any altitude.

 

The combined network of internet users collectively interested in the same thing has been considered to be the first example of a human super-intelligence. This was first observed in the large-scale "operations" committed by members of Anonymous.

 

Ants outnumber the human race five hundred-thousand to one.

 

Antarctica is the only continent which does not have a native population of ants or snakes. It is also the only continent without any formal statehoods on its land. If Antarctica was a country, by area it would be the second largest in the world, slightly less than Russia, but more than Canada.

The highest mountain on Earth is Mount Everest, at 8848 meters above sea level.

The second-highest is Mount Godwin (also known as "K2"), at 8611 meters. It's located less than 100km away from Mount Everest, and is widely recognized as the most dangerous climb in the world. Nearly 25% of all mountaineers who attempt a summit do not survive, and has never been climbed in the wintertime.

 

The highest mountain in the inner Solar System is Olympus Mons, a shield volcano on Mars. It is roughly the size of France, and has an altitude of 22 kilometers.

The highest mountain in the whole Solar System is Rheasilvia, the peak of an impact crater on the asteroid Vesta. At its highest point, it rises 24km from the surface average.

 

Originally Big Macintosh was going to be called Big Apple, and would've been the owner of Big Apple Acres. This was changed at Hasbro's behest during the creation of Season 1. However his appearance remained unchanged.

Cigarettes are made with nicotine (used to kill insects before they were drug ingredients for different tobacco products), candle wax, battery acid, something called Acetone from nail polish remover, a moth ball ingredient called Naphthalene, something from beaver's bum, Arsenic (for rat poison), rocket fuel, tar for paving roads, a ingredient in hair dye, and even something from human waste (pee and poo) so you're smoking not only pee or poop, but you're smoking everything else I listed too...

And many others...

It has been estimated that most forms of multi-cellular life on earth have a predicted lifespan of between 2 and 4 billion heartbeats. This is common between creatures as large as whales and as small as hummingbirds.

 

The biggest organism on the earth is a forest called Pando, located in southern Utah, United States. By identifying genetic markers, it was discovered that all of the trees in the forest were identical, and that the entire forest was one giant quaking aspen tree, with an interconnected root system. The forest covers approximately half a square kilometer, weighs six million tons and is estimated to be over 80 000 years old.

Dolphins can also bang their heads against a wall and kill themselves (sometimes by accident from excitement) or refused to eat and starve themselves.

I know :( Sometimes dolphins at Zoos or aquariums get overly-excited to the point they'd start banging against the tanks or whatever or they'd try to escape from a cage. That just sounds both so wrong and sad. :(

Some facts about the Swabians:

  • The Swabians invented a lot of useful things, like:
    • automobile and powerboat
    • matchstick and not flameable paper
    • chainsaw and TV towers
    • and at last the... percussion drill

So, keep in mind. If you work with your percussion drill next time you know who invented it now.

 

And for the finish some other facts about Swabians:

  • Albert Einstein was Swabian.
  • Hollywood exists thanks to the Swabian Chef Carl Lämmle.

Possibly... however, the first color babies see even before opening their eyes is red.
