The facts

  1. Chocolate can help you live longer.
  2. “Eleven plus Two” and “Twelve plus One” both equal 13 and both have 13 letters. In fact they both have THE SAME 13 letters.
  3. “Silent” and “listen” are spelled with the same letters.
  4. “W” is the only letter in the English alphabet that is more than one syllable.
  5. A way you can tell if you’re whispering or not is to put your hand at your throat. If you feel vibrations, you’re talking. If you don’t, you’re whispering.
  6. Tomatoes and cucumbers are fruits, not vegetables.
  7. If you put two straws in your mouth: one inside a drink and one outside it, you won’t be able to drink through either straw.
  8. Newborn babies cry but they have no tears. Their tear ducts aren’t formed until they are a month old.
  9. Elephants are the only land mammals that cannot jump.
  10. Penguins cannot walk backwards
  11. When you put a seashell next to your ear, it’s the sound of your blood surging in your veins, not the ocean
