Did You Know That...

Venus rotates clockwise which is the opposite direction from the other nine planets in the solar system.

Jupiter is the fastest rotating planet. It can make one complete revolution in less than 10 hours.

Giraffes, camels and cats all share an interesting trait. When giraffes, camels or cats walk, they move both their left feet and then both their right feet. They are unique in the animal kingdom; and, their method of walking ensures speed, agility and silence.

Many desert plants have extremely long roots that can find their way into deep underground water reserves. The Mesquite, for example, can extend its roots as deep as 70' to find the water it needs to survive.

When you're asleep you usually reach the REM or dream state about 90 minutes after nodding off. People with depression reach this stage in about half the time and experience REM more intensely.
