Fun facts and Foolishness !

Updated: May 23, 2020

You want more facts and foolishness? You have come to the right blog. I promise to get back to the tales of the antique, estate appraisal and collectible world, shortly. But for now, here is a smattering of random useless facts and trivia to impress your friends. Feel free to care and share! So...and as always... I must issue this disclaimer. I believe everything I am about to say is true, but it may not be...but I thinks so... so here they are...

#1 Polar bears are almost completely undetectable by infrared cameras! You see, thermal cameras work by detecting the heat lost by an object as infrared. Polar bears, after years of evolution, have become amazing at conserving heat. The heat is retained underneath a thick layer of blubber beneath their skin. Throw on a fur coat and they become almost impossible to detect. Just like the Predator Monster.


#2 About 60 million years ago, give or take an Epoch....Giant penguins, about the size of adult humans waddled around The Antarctic & New Zealand. That’s some big Happy Feet.

#3 Time Travel is Possible! Two physicists developed the mathematical model based on Einstein’s theory of relativity. It was proven in 2015. Now, all that holding us back is the technology that can physically bend the space-time fabric. But I am working on it.

#4 Bees understand the concept of zero. Scientists, while training bees to count shapes, found they could count to 4 and further, discovered their concept of Zero. Sounds to me like they were working with the Bee played by Jerry Seinfeld in the movie...

#5 Harvard Scientists have figured out how to store GIF animations in the DNA of bacteria. And I am sure there is an amazing reason for them wanting to do this...

#6 A teaspoonful of water has 8X the atoms as there are teaspoonfuls of water in the entire Atlantic Ocean. Wrap you head around that!
