Fact of the Day
Posted 11/13/07 , edited 11/13/07
Well i haven't seen this thread yet, but if this is a repeat thread, then i apologize.

Now for the explanation:

Post any type of information that you would like, it could be serious and it could be funny. Generally it shouldn't be long, but it can if you want it to be. Just post any random fact you find interesting and you are willing to share.

For example: A fact on snails

"Most snails are hermaphrodites. This means that they are both male and female. All hermaphroditic snails can lay eggs. They can "mate" with themselves and thus only one can reproduce in an aquarium or pond. They also breed sexually as often as possible. Most snails lay eggs but some, like the trapdoor snail, give live birth. Trapdoor snails and a few other species of snails (apple, golden inca, four horned, etc.) are not hermaphrodites. They can only reproduce sexually." - wikianswer.com

Edit: The main purpose of this thread is to post facts. If you would like to post your own opinion, I would suggest posting it after your fact separated by a space.

Liberals complain that we at war in the Middle East for oil... They don't realize that not only is this NOT the reason why we are over there. But war for oil is a very good enough reason because without oil, you have no country. We have oil in the Key West, off the Gulf, off the coast of California, and in Alaska. Yet they won't let us drill for it, so where can we get it? China is drilling in the Key West and another country is drilling in the Gulf, yet liberals are too blinded to see this. Liberals want the government to take over our health-care system, which would end in total disaster because the government can't do anything right. Europe, United Kingdom, Canada... Their health-care is a mess and some Canadians have to venture too America just to seek medical attention. Liberals also want to raise taxes, wile conservatives want to LOWER taxes. I'm learning how global warming is one of the biggest scams in history. I'm scared for my future if a democrat (liberal) is elected to become president. America will not fall due to another country, we will fall due to our politicians and its corruptions.

I believe I posted facts, if not point it out and I will correct it.

^ That's not fact. That's opinion. If it were fact they wouldn't be any argument now would there? (Although I agree with you on health care and global warming.)

On topic:
Bacteria like E.coli are capable of "sex" with their sex pili! Even better, they can pick up DNA that can make the glow under UV light! Who knew that bacteria could have sex and glow =D

It's not opinion, it's what democrats are about. If you disagree and say not all liberals think that way because I don't... You're a conservative. Let them argue I'll prove them wrong.

The Vampire Squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis, lit. "vampire squid from hell") is a small, deep-sea cirrate cephalopod found throughout the temperate and tropical oceans of the world. Unique retractile sensory filaments justify the Vampire Squid's placement in its own order: Vampyromorphida (formerly Vampyromorpha), sharing similarities with both squid and octopuses. As a phylogenetic relict it is the only surviving member of its order, first described and mistakenly identified as an octopus in 1903 by German teuthologist Carl Chun. -wikipedia.com
