Did you know... Rats cannot throw-up?

Did you know that the whole idea of "right-brained' and 'left-brained' people is completely fiction? Nearly everything your brain does, needs the other half to function properly. One side may be slightly more dominant than the other, depending on the person, but not every person's brain is. A strong relationship between both sides of the brain is required for a person's body to function properly.

Did you know: Food in your mouth must come into contact with saliva in order for you to taste it? There is a thin layer of saliva on the tongue at all times that causes a chemical reaction with the food to break it down and have the taste buds react to it.

Did you know... Zeus was really a huge pervert, and most of his children did not come from the same women?

I love useless knowledge. Did you know:
The first food to be smuggled into space was a corned beef sandwich, during the "Gemini 3" mission. 
There are three golf balls on the Moon. The mission which the golf balls was used was "Apollo 14" and all three crewmembers brought with them was unusual items which included tree seeds! The tree seeds were part of an experiment to see if trees can grow from seeds that have entered Lunar Orbit. The results can be seen today in the form of "Moon Trees", trees that have grown from the seeds taken aboard "Apollo 14". 
Students at a school in Kent, England, uses the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway to get to school. The school service began in the 1970's to take kids from the surrounding area to school.

It's still possible for females to be colorblind, but it's more common in males because of the Y chromosome. If the two X chromosomes carry the recessive colorblind trait, making it homozygous recessive, then the female is colorblind.

Rattlesnakes give birth to live young (meaning they don't lay eggs).

King cobras are the only snakes that build nests.

A king cobra can be the length of a bus.

The longest snake is 50 feet long.

The front legs of cairn terriers are longer than their hind legs. This is to help them dig.

West highland white terriers were originally white cairn terriers.

There are mites that live in your eyelashes. They're called follicle mites, and they're harmless. They look like facehuggers in my opinion! They're so cute!

Male crab spiders drink nectar from flowers.

Most of the time, female black widows don't eat their mate.

Eyewitness memory tends to be very unreliable, and memories can be altered by suggestions.

Insects (well, flying insects) are the only arthropods that can fly.

Boomslangs were discovered to be dangerous when a researcher was bitten by one, but didn't seek medical help because they thought that boomslangs were harmless due to being rear-fanged snakes (many of these are only mildly venomous and aren't dangerous), and the researcher eventually died.

Horseshoe crabs are more closely related to spiders than to crabs.

Only new world tarantulas have irritating hairs. 

Old world tarantulas are more aggressive than new world tarantulas.

Jimmy Carter was the only US president to be attacked by a rabbit on a boat in the middle of a lake (I learned this in my US history class).

Vinegaroons (a type of whip scorpion) are called vinegaroons because they shoot acetic acid (as a defense mechanism) which smells like vinegar.

Banana spiders can't Brazilian wandering spiders because those spiders don't live in the countries where bananas are grown. They're usually huntsman spiders.

The term "bug" in computer science originated because sometimes computer problems were caused by actual insects that went inside the computer.
