    Default Random bits of Information/Facts/knowledge

    Penguins have an organ in their forehead that desalinizes their bloodstream so that they may ingest saltwater.

    The animal that can survive the longest without water is the Kangaroo Rat.

    More people are killed annually by donkeys than die in plane crashes.

    A group of geese on the ground is a gaggle; a group of geese in the air is a skein.

    The Bible does not say there were three wise men; it only says there were three gifts.

    Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

    The Blue-ringed octopus emits one of the most deadliest toxins in the world. There is no anti-venom available, and it has enough venom to kill twenty-six adults within a matter of minutes. Most don't even realize they've been bitten.
