Did you know?

The ant can lift 50 times its weight, pull 30 times its weight and always falls to the right side when it suffers intoxication.

The crocodile can't show its tong.

If someone piss you off, you have to use 42 muscles of your face to move(franzir) the forehead. But only need of 4 muscles to stretch their hands and give a punch in the head of that annoying! (Hahahahaha. ... without violence)

To produce only 300 cigarettes a tree is destroyed. In Brazil, are consumed 128 billion cigarettes annually, which corresponds to the destruction of 426 million trees!

The pressure produced by the beating human heart is sufficient to splashing blood at a distance of 9 meters.

The information about the amount of trees destroyed by the production of a cigarette really made me think. This is another serious reason cigarettes should not exist. It´s great you have posted again. Start visiting other blogs at Pageflakes and interact with others.

Hello ana marias's bolgspot, I'm sorry for not having coment anything, but I'm really suprised about Pedro's comment about the ant. I think there's other animal that can do things more impressive than an ant. I'm not sure, nonetheless the flea or a spider can obtain better results. Probably it is the last comment because my college's class is coming, the professors demand total dedication. My pass depend on this. My blog is http://finally5b.21classes.com/leodir .
Resplectly,
Leonardo.
