Writing - 10 things we didn't know last week

Nostalgia, jealousy and moose spit!

1. Moose spit has anti-fungal properties.

And its usage?


2. Only 10% of DNA is doing something important.


3. Dogs get jealous.

And as I remember it they are also spiteful.

4. It's possible to charge a Nokia Lumia 930 using 800 apples and potatoes connected with copper wire and nails.

Why would you want to have so much plant residue in your house? 

5. People are more likely to spend money when they feel nostalgic.


6. Some 96% of adults engage in an internal dialogue.


7. It's against the law in England and Wales to swallow and regurgitate goldfish, even if they survive, but it may be legal to do the same with an octopus.

And probably more difficult to swallow in the first place.

8. Electric guitarists use the same patterns of sound as the human voice.


9. Banded mongooses try less hard at motherhood after bringing up their first-born.

In the one above you can she is off with the words 'Its your son' on her lips!

10. All dinosaurs were either covered with feathers or had the potential to grow them.


God Bless
