Major earthquakes can set the whole Earth ringing like a giant bell. The frequencies are too low for the human ear to detect, but they can be measured by sensitive seismographs. After a Chilean earthquake in 1950, with a magnitude of 8.7 on the Richter scale and an intensity of 11 on the Mercalli scale - the Earth reverberated for a month.

The 5 Great Lakes, Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior contain 20% of the world's fresh water. If the contents of of all 5 Geart lakes were suddenly released, the water would cover the lower 48 states to a depth of almost 9 feet.

Research carried out in California suggests that the weight of the Internet approximates that of a large strawberry or small egg.
The results were carried out by Professor John D. Kubiatowicz, of Berkeley University, California, using Albert Einstein’s E=mc² formula. Kubiatowicz claims that the electrons that make the Internet work weigh around 50 grams (approx 2 ounces).
Kubiatowicz’s research came about following suggestions that “each book loaded onto an Amazon Kindle e-reader makes the device very slightly heavier”.
Kubiatowicz had responded to the question “When an e-reader is loaded with thousands of books, does it gain any weight?” in the New York Times late last month.“In principle, the answer is yes,” he said,“[but] the amount is very small, on the order of an atogram [10-18 grams]. This amount is effectively unmeasurable.”
Einstein’s E=mc² formula states that energy and mass are directly related. Using this formula, Kubiatowicz calculates that filling a 4GB Kindle to its storage limit would “increase its weight by a billionth of a billionth of a gram, or 0.000000000000000001g”.

There are several explanations for the origin of April Fools' Day, but here is the most plausible one. April 1st was once New Year's Day in France. In 1582, Pope Gregory declared the adoption of his Gregorian calendar to replace the Julian calendar and New Year's Day was officially changed to January 1st. It took awhile for everyone in France to hear the news of this major change and others obstinately refused to accept the new calendar, so a lot of people continued to celebrate New Year's Day on the first of April - earning them the name "April fools." The April fools were subjected to ridicule and practical jokes and the tradition was born. The butts of these pranks were first called poisson d'avril or "April fish" because a young naive fish is easily caught. A common practice was to hook a paper fish on the back of someone as a joke. This evolved over time and a custom of prank-playing continues on the first day of April.

Hey D, Dizzyland was slammed. A sea of confusion. It's really not a good place to go on a holiday weekend.

I went to a local theme park and it was mobbed as well. I concur on avoiding them on holiday weekends.

Buddha is Sanskrit for "the enlightened one," and he is regarded as the founder of Buddhism. Buddha's given name was Siddhartha, the family name Gautama, and the clan name Shakya or Sakya. Three major events of the Buddha's (c 563-483 BC) life - his birth, Enlightenment, and entrance into final nirvana - are commemorated in all Buddhist countries but not everywhere on the same day. In countries observing the Theravada tradition, the three events are all observed together on Vesak, the full moon day of the sixth lunar month, which usually occurs in May. Among Buddhist holidays, the birthday of the Buddha (Day of Vesak) is the most important.

The word library derives from the Latin liber 'book.' In ancient times, there was no difference between a record room or archive and a library. The earliest known library was a collection of clay tablets in Babylonia in the 21st century B.C. The extensively catalogued library of Assurbanipal (c 7th century B.C.) in Nineveh was the most noted before that at Alexandria (3rd century B.C.). The first public library was established in 330 B.C. in Greece for the preservation of the work of the great dramatists.

Giraffes sleep only 1.9 hours a day in five- to 10-minute sessions. Koalas, however, are the longest-sleeping mammals, sleeping up to 22 hours a day.
