New Thread for the 100 Posts!

Also, side note for those that are wondering or will wonder in the future... I change my font type and size every time I post on this forum... It does take an extra amount of time, but I'm getting used to it.

The font is called Constantia and the size I use is size 17 for those who may wonder. It sets me apart from what everyone else is doing, so that's why I do it. I'll just copy my formatting for the next 79 posts to make it easier on myself. haha

Idea Did you know?
A typical adult human skeleton consists of 206 bones, not counting many small and often variable sesamoid bones and ossicles. Individuals may have more or fewer bones than this owing to anatomical variations. The most common variations include additional (i.e. supernumerary) cervical ribs or lumbar vertebrae.

Another version of the creation of the hamburger is that of German cook Otto Kuasw, who created a very popular sailors' sandwich made of a fillet of beef patty fried in butter, served with a fried egg, between two toasted buns in 1891, at a post in Hamburg, Germany. This is often considered the "origin" of hamburgers.

And since who ever really heard of Salmon P. Chase, here's a short Wikipedia snippet:
"Salmon Portland Chase (January 13, 1808 – May 7, 1873) was an American politician and jurist who served as the sixth Chief Justice of the United States from 1864 to 1873. During his career, Chase was the 23rd Governor of Ohio and U.S. Senator from Ohio prior to service under Abraham Lincoln as the 25th Secretary of the Treasury.

As Treasury Secretary, Chase strengthened the federal government, introducing its first paper currency as well as a national bank, both during wartime.

Chase articulated the "slave power conspiracy" thesis, devoting his energies to the destruction of what he considered the Slave Power—the conspiracy of Southern slave owners to seize control of the federal government and block the progress of liberty. He coined the slogan of the Free Soil Party, "Free Soil, Free Labor, Free Men". Chief Justice Chase presided over the Senate trial of Andrew Johnson during the President's impeachment proceedings in 1868."

Ok then.... Wanted to say, "why's he on the largest bill again?!", but there it is, he came up with our paper currency to have freakin money. Ok. Neat. Smile

What gas is released when you crack your knuckles? The fluid contains the gases oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. When you pop or crack a joint, you stretch the joint capsule. Gas is rapidly released, which forms bubbles. In order to crack the same knuckle again, you have to wait until the gases return to the synovial fluid.

Interesting to know I guess... I pop literally every bone possible on my body- neck, wrist, ankles, knees, fingers, toes, back- you name it. I've been doing that since I was a kid. Idk why, but it makes for less joint pain I guess?

There's no wind on the equator because the trade winds coming from the south and the north meet near the equator. These converging trade winds produce general upward winds as they are heated, so there are no steady surface winds. This area of calm is called the doldrums.

Apollo missions took about three days to reach the moon. But the quickest trip to the moon was the New Horizons probe, which zipped past the moon in just 8 hours 35 minutes on its way to Pluto. However, the spacecraft didn't even slow down or approach lunar orbit.

It is possible for twins to have different fathers... In rare instances when twins are conceived by different fathers, it's called heteropaternal superfecundation, which occurs when two or more of a woman's eggs are fertilized by different men within the same ovulation period.
