www.cancer.org...

That although at a rate of around 100 times less than women @ a 1 in 1000 for lifetime risk... Men also get breast cancer.

I suppose its obvious really i had just never considered it before i heard of a friend of a friend getting it...and i actually felt pretty dumb and embarrassed to be honest that i was not aware of it before hand.

And in case anyone would like to know the friend of a friend is kicking its ass
FU cancer.

Geckos use what is called "van der Waals force" to stick to a surface.

They have millions of tiny bristles on their toes which create a very large surface area.

The molecular attraction between these bristles and the surface causes them to stick.

They have so many bristles, in fact, that if a gecko were to have all these bristles in contact with a surface at the same time, the gecko could support as much as 290 lbs.

Bees have a positive charge and pollen has a negative charge, when the bee lands, pollen literally jumps onto the bee, causing the flower to become positively charged so the next bee that flys by it knows it has already been tapped of pollen.

Thought that was a cool new fact i learned

They do sing pretty. But I will personally never bow to them until they agree to release from servitude, all of the people that wait on them fin and flipper at seaworld and other mega palaces which they have created to fascilitate their transition into rulers of the land and the sea. They even call it "Seaworld" because they plan to eventually make the entire world a warm bath for them to frolic in. Global warming anyone? Rising water lines? Katrina was a test run.

bugs bunny was accidentally responsible for equating the word "nimrod" with an idiot. when he called Elmer fudd (one d or two? who cares?) a nimrod, he was referring to the biblical character (who was a great hunter). viewers misunderstood it to be him calling Elmer an idiot.

Well its not a fact but a suspicion that if I was to analyse the amount of time I spend on ATS it would be in the order of 20% of my free time - life is so short.

20% of my free time....I must be insane

Whales have pelvises, allows them to poo, mate and give birth and phalanges, allows them to spread out their flippers
Nothing to do with legs at all, thats kinda dumb
