most toilets flush in E flat

At a glance, the Celsius scale makes more sense than the Fahrenheit scale for temperature measuring. But its creator, Anders Celsius, was an oddball scientist. When he first developed his scale, he made freezing 100 degrees and boiling 0 degrees, or upside down. No one dared point this out to him, so fellow scientists waited until Celsius died to change the scale.

Clothes that are dried outside do smell better because of a process called photolysis. What happens is this: sunlight breaks down compounds in the laundry that cause odor, such as perspiration and body oils.

A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continually from the bottom of the glass to the top. This is because the carbonation in the drink gets pockets of air stuck in the wrinkles of the raisin, which is light enough to be raised by this air. When it reaches the surface of the champagne, the bubbles pop, and the raisin sinks back to the bottom, starting the cycle over.

Earth's atmosphere is, proportionally, thinner than the skin of an apple.

Incredible means not believable. Incredulous means not believing. When someone's story is truly incredible, you ought to be incredulous.

corn has been genetically modified to contain traces of poison high enough to kill pests that eat it but is presumably safe for human consumption. not necessarily useless but interesting.
