Very nice post, I always wonder where all the dust in my house comes from. They seem to accumulate at breakneck speed in the dry California weather whereas in SG, the humidity prevents it from flying into your house. I open the windows all the time and that adds to the dust level.

An armadillo always has four babies per litter and they are all genetically identical. She can also delay birth up to 2 months if under enough stress

The human body does not digest hair

a button mushroon is actually a baby shitake mushroom

Your eyes get no bigger than what they are at birth. No lie!!!!!!

If I'm not mistaken the armadillo is the only animal other than homosapiens that can contract leprosy as well. :(

did you know mushrooms can grow through concrete (not sure of the thickness though)

when a fly lands on a ceiling it touches it's front legs up to the ceiling & then flips it's body over (almost like a back flip)

flies take off by launching themsleves backwards
