    Does it carry more weight if you post your view twice ?

    The relativity of time. In 1939 my grandparents were teenagers. In 1980 I was in grade one. I'm now the same age my grandparents were when their first grandchild was born.

    I don't feel like a grandparent. I still feel like a grandchild or a teenager.

    Did you know: if you were to line up all the Elephants on earth, trunk to tail, from earth towards the moon,... then....





















    many of those elephants would die




    Seriously though, Interesting fact about the moon, it's not round. It's actually egg shaped . But it's like looking at an egg from underneath, so it appears round to us. And because it doesn't rotate around its own axis (another Interesting fact), you only ever see the same side of the moon. And there are therefore only a handful of astronauts that have seen the "dark side of the moon" (which is not always dark as it also gets sun)

    The topic is a bit awkward for a public forum, but I thought this was very interesting

    The human body has approximately 2 - 4 million sweat glands found all over the body, except on the nails, ears and lips.

    as did Elon Musk .
