Lets play a fact game

Tell each other a Fact that is TRUE!!!!!!

ok heres my fact

The speed of Light is 300,000,000 Meters/Second
Therefore
1 Light Minute = 1,800,000,000 Meters (about 1/3 Way to Mercury)
1 Light Hour = 108,000,000,000 Meters (about 1/2 Way between Jupiter and Saturn)
1 Light Day = 2,592,000,000,000 Meters (about 3.5X further out than the edge of the Kuiper belt)

Did you know that the tempo of a Cricket's chirping is directly proportionate to the relative temperature of the air?

Did you know that in North America there are ten different species of spiders that make noises at night often confused with other insects?

Sleipnir was born from Loki after he turned into a purty my little pony and did it with a stallion.
Yeah... He turned into a female horse, a mare... And his child was a 8 legged horse.
