For a moment there Niecarrah I thought you were going to say Gunpowder lol.

Did you know that the Grand Canyon can hold around 900 trillion footballs.

Whether these are American or English footballs is unclear.

When did the Yellowstone volcano last erupt?
 An eruption approximately 174,000 years ago created what is now the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake. The last lava flow was about 70,000 years ago.

Did you know that announcing your bid for the Presidency 19 months ahead of the election will allow you enough time to raise billions of campaign dollars and thus crush lesser endowed candidates, regardless of whether or not you are the type of person who mysteriously loses or purposely deletes e-mail history from a server?
"In an age when mass society has rendered obsolete the qualities of individual courage and independent thought, the oceans of the world still remain, vast and uncluttered, beautiful but unforgiving, awaiting those who will not submit. Their voyages are not an escape, but a fulfillment."

  No I was not aware of that, Thank You.

Did you know: "Jay" used to be slang for "foolish person." So when a pedestrian ignored street signs, he was referred to as a "jaywalker."
