Default AMAZING Facts

Science is AMAZING....
I've come across many facts which need to be shared. SO here goes...

1) To make just one spoonful of honey, bees have to visit around 5000 flowers!!!

2) At least 7500 varieties of apple are grown worldwide.

3) Crowds of people who gathered to observe an eclipse in Milan in 1860 cried, "Long live the astronomers," as they believed that the astronomers had actually caused the eclipse themselves.

4) According to the judges of a cookery contest in Pomona, California, worms taste like shredded wheat!!!

The Newtons and friends were taking tea
Beneath the boughs of an apple tree,
When a falling fruit landed on the
Head of the head of the family.
Mrs. Newton cried, 'Well deary me!
That could've caused an injury'.
But clever Isaac alone could see,
The situation's true gravity.
