    A Blue whale's tongue weighs more than an elephant.

    Tiger shark embroyos fight each other in their mother's womb. The survivor is born

    "Bookkeeper" is the only word in English language with three consecutive Double letters.


    not sure how true this one is - You grow by about 8mm (O.3in) every night when you are asleep, but shrink to your former height the following day.

    If you are locked in a completely sealed room, you will die of carbon dioxide poisoning first before you will die of oxygen deprivation.

    Bulls are color blind so the red cloth thingy doesn't have to be red for them to run after you.

    Depends on your definition of 'growing'. Your spine contracts over the day as gravity 'squishes' the discs inbetween your spinal vertebrae. They expand back to their previous size when you lie down for a long time (sleeping), so you're 'tallest' when you wake up.

    One car out of every 230 made was stolen last year!

    Should there be a crash, Prince Charles and Prince William never travel on the same airplane as a precaution!

    No human being is capable of lifting an average sized Walrus.

    Same in the way they're complete opposites? :hehe: If she's doing the lifting then she could be lifting anyone. If she is being lifted, then we are insulting her directly for being a Walrus.

    MAX LEVEL MAN STRIKES AGAIN!!! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! lol

    Edit: but I suppose it could be taken as you meaning she is being lifted. Hmmmm, ambiguous statement is confusing :( lol +rep for being right and wrong and everywhere in between at the same time.
