Broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts all contain a little bit of cyanide—eating them primes your liver to deal better with other poisons.

Honey is the only food that never expires. The same honey that was buried with the pharaohs in Egypt is still edible.

POTUS James Buchanan was excited about becoming president and after spending 4 miserable years in office was even more excited about becoming an un-president.

My mom used to say "Don't frown or your face will become that way." That's true! Have you ever seen some people who have like a permanent snarl on their face? They didn't listen to their momma. Because I'll bet everybody's mother said that. :lol: :lol:

Did you know that monkeys brachiate?

LOL. :lol: That's not a random fact. It's a very common fact.

What's random is my use of the word "brachiate". :lol:

* brachiate (verb) means swing from one hold to the next

* * *

Brachiation
animal behaviour


"Brachiation, in animal behaviour, specialized form of arboreal locomotion in which movement is accomplished by swinging from one hold to another by the arms. The process is highly developed in the gibbon and siamang, which are anatomically adapted for it in the length of their forelimbs, their long hooklike fingers, and the mobility of their shoulder joints. The South American spider monkey, considered a semibrachiator, uses its prehensile tail as a third arm. Spider monkeys both run along branches and swing from them.

Because bipedal locomotion is the terrestrial form of movement in the true brachiators, some researchers believe that the human species may have evolved from a protobrachiator. Other researchers have tried to demonstrate that the so-called knuckle-walking apes (e.g., the gorilla) are descended from brachiating ancestors. They base this theory on the characteristically long arms and curved fingers of knuckle-walkers."

People often get alligators and crocodiles mixed up. People like me. And there's no excuse for the confusion. Alligators are in the Florida Everglades and I'm from Florida and I know that. Sometimes the alligators even end up in people's pools at their homes. Whereas crocodiles are in Australia. ... I think. ... Right? :?
