^That can't be right, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" must have more drops than the word "bollocks" does, it's bloody fake news again.

Your eyes can detect a candle flame 1.7 miles away.
In the USA, Candles cause an estimated 15,600 house fires, 150 deaths, and 1,270 injuries each year.

Statistics don't tell us if those people were Blind.

The American incarnation of Mother’s Day was created by Anna Jarvis in 1908 and became an official U.S. holiday in 1914.
Jarvis later denounced the holiday’s commercialization and spent the latter part of her life trying to remove it from the calendar.

I've been by the home of Jarvis and her Mother in West Virginia.
So 2 for 1 useless facts.

During the black death, incoming ships were forced to wait 40 days to prevent possible infection.
The italian word "quaranta" for 40 is where the word quarantine comes from.

Icon9 Learning fom others mistakes saves pain!

The famous Percy Shelley, the John Lennon of his time, drowned sailing his new sailboat and washed up on the Italian coast ...some fortnight later... not looking as good as in the contemporary painting of his beachside cremation. My great-grandfather drowned similarly on the St Lawrence river testing his new boat: in front of his wife and my grandmother. Naturally I tend to recollect these things when aboard the 35+ year-old Catalina in the Carquinez Strait!

A shark is the only animal that can blink both its eyes.

I'm pretty sure I've seen plenty of animals blink both eyes. Do you mean independently ... like winking?
