The loneliest whale, and other #FridayFunFacts
Do you know what the loneliest creature on Earth is? No it's not you, you're lovely. It is a whale that has been singing along to itself, and maybe even calling out for a mate, for two decades! Its solo warble is at such an unusually high frequency, that other whales can't hear it. It might as well be swimming through space...
Now, picture a statue of a man on horseback - perhaps in battle, or perhaps on a beach and he's the man you wish your man smelled like. Either way, if you look carefully at the horse, you can tell how the horseman died - all feet on the ground means he died of natural causes (or possibly on the beach), one hoof raised means the man died from wounds he got in battle, and if the horse is rearing, two feet in the air, the man was very heroic indeed and died in battle.
G&T is short for gin and tonic, Coke is short for Coca-cola (most of the time, at least), but did you know that 7Up is short for "bib-label lithiated lemon-lime soda"? It sounds clinical because it was - it used to be packed with mood enhancing lithium, and used to treat depression! Take that, coke.
Russia is a beautiful country, but also a dangerous one - falling icicles kill on average, 100 Russians each year!
Have you ever tried to get out of a cell phone contract? It's pretty difficult. So difficult, in fact, that a man named Corey Taylor (possibly the most American name on the planet) faked his own death to get out of his cell phone contract. It didn't work.
