Wow. Some of these I knew, but many I didn't! Like the parachute one... they were originally invented for workers constructing tall buildings in case they fell! I guess the original BASE jumpers!

Is that why an owl can basically turn its head 360 degrees

hmm I'm not sure... I guess it would depend on your size and it's certainly more than you would ever want to eat lol

How many carrots do u need to turn orange

Why? Do u want to be orange?lol

me too

who ever doesn't is a sad excuse for a person in my opinion
