Facts Facts and More Facts

For people who enjoy facts and like hitting the refresh button, check out hooked on facts.

Every time you load the page you get a different random fact.

They claim that the facts are real (otherwise they wouldn't be called facts) but some are hard to believe.

Here are some of the fact that I got in the 30 seconds that I repeatedly refreshed the page:

  • Spiders have transparent blood

  • If you took a slinky and stretched it out it would measure 87 feet

  • Women blink nearly twice as much as men

  • A completely blind chameleon will still take on the colors of its environment

  • A recent study at Harvard has shown that eating chocolate can actually help you live longer (you'd like to belive this one ah?)

  • All polar bears are left-handed

  • Anteaters prefer termites to ants

  • Jimmy Carter is the first U.S. President to have been born in a hospital
