Did you know No:6


Well hello everyone this cool and wet Monday afternoon been a busy morning with my aqua class followed by going to the shops for bread, tobacco and wine then before I knew it, it was time to go get Leo from school.

When I got home I notice that my sister had tagged me in a Facebook post and when I check it out this is what I saw.

Anyway it is Monday so that means it is Did you know Monday.................so did you know

The pumpkin has been known to develop roots whose total length reached more than 15miles or 24 kilometers, what the hell

The sound of someone snoring can be as loud as a pneumatic drill, sleeping with Tim I can believe this

The famous Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky could jump into the air and cross and uncross his legs 10 times before landing..................wow

Only 4% of the energy put out by a light bulb is light the rest is heat

Castor oil is used as a lubricant in jet planes
