They don't know how many stars are in the Universe. So are you saying they don't know how many H2O molecules in 10 drops of water.

It's an estimate, thrown in a bunch of random facts. It's just for fun, not a scientific journal. Try not to get too caught up in the details.

Highly Unlikely but you just can't tell with these Billionaires and their squandering ways.

Not all of the quotes i've been reading on that site are true, like harry potter, he was born in 1989 not 1980.

cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, savoy, kohlrabi are all the exact same plant. brassica oleracea.

not similar plants, the exact same plant just breed differently into different cultivars. just like a Chihuahua and a bull mastiff are the exact same animal canis familiaris.

No - Daniel Radcliffe was born in 89, Harry Potter was born in 1980.

time.com...

Luckily, some extremely dedicated Potter fans created a timeline on their own, based on one concrete date given in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. A 12-year-old Harry and friends were celebrating Nearly Headless Nick’s 500th anniversary of his October 31, 1492 deathday. And quicker than you can say, “Aparecium!” there it is–a clear indication that Harry was born in 1980.

King's Cross station in London is simultaneously north and south of Euston station.

Explanation; there are two tube lines connecting the two.
On one of them, you get from King's Cross to Euston by the "northbound" service.
On the other, you make the same journey on the "southbound" service.

if that being true then Noah only needed one set of each type of animal to eventually get all the types we have today.

One set of canines would give you all the wolves and dogs we have today. One set of Feline to get all the different types of Cats and so one and so forth.

Well that fixes the old mystery on how Noah got all the animals on such a small craft, just bring on a freshly weaned pair of each type for the duration of the flood.
