It's Monday so here are some facts

 

Hello Monday, here are some facts..................

The longest long-distance phone call between two people was over a third of a million Kilometres apart.

This happened in on the 2th July 1969 and took place between President Richard Nixon and Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin, Nixon was in the White House the others on the Moon.

In the 1930's special blue post boxes in Britain for airmail, they used to be a regular sight but have since disappeared.

A fully grown python can swallow a whole pig

Our eyes are the same size from birth but our nose and ears never stop growing.

Couldn't bear to see a python swallow a pig, I would run..lol

Kea said...

I'm with Margaret...I'd run, screaming. Can't imagine it. (And oh, the poor pig!)

We're a weird-looking species, with our nose and ears continuing to grow throughout our lives. I wonder whatever for, why that happens!

Kea said...

P.S. I wonder how long it would be before a python had to eat again, if it swallowed an entire pig! Months??? Ugh.

Imagine if Dr Who decided to use the postal box instead of the police phone box...

I didn't know about our eyes being the same size from birth. This is amazing. I learned something new today. Thanks for the facts.

Dear Jo-Anne, I knew that about the nose and ears because mine just keep growing. I gather that's because the skin covers cartillage, not bone. My ears just to be so tiny--people commented on them--now I look like Dumbo the baby elephant!!! Peace to you. Take care.

I don't or won't visit any country that has pythons. NO way. In fact, I don't like those BIG snakes that eat people and pigs, etc. They scare the heck out of me. I can handle a rattlesnake. You just have to understand where they are coming from. But those big ones - no way.

I'll take giant sunflowers over BIG snakes. LOL
