Copper has the atomic number 29, tin has the atomic number 50, and gold has the atomic number 79. Gold can therefore be made from bronze by nuclear fusion. However:

Initiating the nuclear reaction would be expensive.
Currently we are only able to sustain nuclear fusion for short time spans.
The volume of gold produced would not cover the cost of the reaction.
The gold produced would be a few neutrons short from a stable isotope.

Nuclear physics. Alchemy without the mysticism.

and the fact the gold would be radioactive might be slightly off putting to some

Turkeys are so dumb that they will sometimes stare up into the sky while it's raining and accidentally drown themselves.

Bonus fact: Captive turkeys have been bred to be so fat, that they can't mate normally. (They are all bred by way of artificial insemination.)


So we have to stuff the turkey when they're alive too?

The most beautiful and brightly colored animals are usually the most venomous or poisonous. But that is a useful fact.

Now here is the useless fact that may get you killed. You can separate a venomous cone snail from its shell by tossing it into an ants nest and waiting a couple of days while they clean it out.

Wait, that's actually useful too! and it can be used for other skeletons too! Dam... umm...

At current US minimum wage, you earn $15,080 working 40 week full time in a year. That is less then 4 bitcoins. In my city, it's a little over 5 bitcoins. Crazy, isn't it. :P


Odd fact if Poison Dart frogs pictured below normally very poisonous unless breed in captivity then they are not poisonous



That's because some animals don't manufacture their poison. Instead, they use the poison in the foods they eat. In the frogs case, it's various bugs with nasty stingers. Same goes for the monarch butterfly. It too is poisonous due to the milkweed it eats as a caterpillar

and then there are those sneeky animals that pretend to be something very dangerous, like the hoverfly (bee) or the queen victoria butterfly that looks almost like a monarch.

Pineapples are multiple fruits. Each flower in the cluster produces a fruit; they mature into one massed fruit.
