    The farthest you can see with the naked eye is 2.4 million light years away! (140,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles.) That's the distance to the giant Andromeda Galaxy. You can see it easily as a dim, large gray "cloud" almost directly overhead in a clear night sky.

    Amazing that the naked human eye can see 2.4 million light years
    away, and yet the average Human can't see the beauty right
    before those very keen Eyes. i.e. We can't see the forest for the
    trees!:confused:

    In Baharain, cannons are fired throughout the month of Ramadan to announce the timing of keeping and breaking the fast. This practice is unique to Baharain.

    Calculus is a required subject in many university Majors other
    than Mathematics, Mechanical Enginering & Nuclear Physics;
    when in fact, it is a pretty much useless theorem for any practice outside of those three Majors!!!!

    * Please, correct me if i'm wrong here Asklepios, but, off the top of my head it seems to be fact from my University studies of 35 years ago at Southern Illinois University.GeeAwd i hated that class, as it was thaught by a Chinaman born in Thailand & raised in both Viet Nam & Cambodia, Who when excited, talked in all 3 native languages, and then gave you an F if ya complained; & i was the 1 dat got him excited by proving him wrong 92% of the time!!! :shrug: :confused: :rofl:

    the pharse 'airhead' is true. the more you know, the more dendorites your brain creates. the denser and therefore heavier your brian is. so no reading=less understanding=the fewer dendorites you have="light weight champion"

    It is believed that germs only cause disease. But a common bacterium, E. Coli, found in the intestine helps us digest green vegetables and beans. These same bacteria also make vitamin K, which causes blood to clot and stop us from bleeding to death on getting small cuts!
