    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boomslang

    The venom of the boomslang is primarily a hemotoxin; it disables the blood clotting process and the victim may well die as a result of internal and external bleeding. The venom causes the victim to bleed from all of the holes in its body.
    It is a pretty cool snake, despite being horrifying.

      In Natoma, Kansas, it's illegal to throw knives at men wearing striped suits

      Ancient Egyptians slept on pillows made of stone

      In Kentucky, it is illegal for a merchant to force a person into his place of business for the purpose of making a sale.

      The law states that more than 3000 sheep cannot be herded down Hollywood Blvd. at any one time. (Haha, I could see the point of the law if Hollywood Blvd. was in New Zealand.)

          That's like in LA, people say "The La Brea Tar Pits" but "La Brea" is "The Tar". So saying "The La Brea Tar Pits" is saying "The The Tar Tar Pits" lol

              Take a standard piece of paper. Fold it in half 3 times, and it's now as thick as your fingernail. Fold it in half 50 times, and now it (thickness) reaches all the way to the sun. Exponential growth is scary.

                  One sheet of typical paper has a thickness of about 0.1 millimeters. So folding 50 times (if this were physically possible, which of course, it's not) would produce a wad of paper that is 1.13x10^(11) meters in height, which would put it at about 100 million kilometers or 62,137,119.2 miles.

                  That's only about 2/3rds of the way to the sun, since the sun is anywhere from 91.40 million miles to 94.51 million miles (we're in an elliptical orbit around the sun, dontchaknow)

                  Sorry. Couldn't resist

                  But if you doubled up 51 times you would make it past the sun lol

                          It's the same as the penny number game thing. Where if someone was to pay you one penny the first day and double it every day for a month they would end up paying you millions.

                            The oldest video of cats dates to 1894.


                            An average daydream lasts about fourteen seconds and we have about two thousand of them per day.

                            More of Mars is habitable for life as we know it than on Earth, but all of it is deep underground.

                              Facebook is blue because its founder, Zuckerberg, is color-blind.

                              Kevin Ham, M.D. from Vancouver, has made over 300 million dollars off placing ads on typo domains.
