Monday, November 18, 2013

One night a driver was having trouble seeing through dense fog, so he decided to follow the pair of taillights ahead of him. They went along for a while, and then suddenly the car in front of him stopped and the driver crashed into it. “Why didn’t you let me know you were going to stop?” the driver yelled into the mist.
“Why should I?” came a voice out of the fog. “I’m in my own garage!”

An incredible 24,816 miles per hour, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. It’s the speed astronauts Gene Cernan, Tom Stafford, and John Young traveled aboard the Apollo 10 command module when it reentered the earth’s atmosphere in 1969, on their return from a simulated moon landing.

EERIE AIRWAVES

When the made-for-TV disaster movie Oil Storm aired on FX in June 2005, US gas prices were hovering around a modest $2 per gallon and New Orleans hadn’t been hit by a major hurricane since 1965. In Oil Storm, a hurricane hits New Orleans in September 2005, causing extensive damage to both the city and Gulf Coast oil platforms. Survivors take refuge in the Superdome, and the resulting oil shortage causes gas prices to rise dramatically. Less than three months after Oil Storm aired, Hurricane Katrina made landfall near New Orleans in September 2005, caused extensive damage, sent refugees to the Superdome, and triggered an oil shortage that temporarily pushed gas prices to more than $5 per gallon.
(Oooooh - that IS eerie! emoticon )

The end of the Fun Apple Facts

1. Apple varieties range in size from a little larger than a cherry to as large as a grapefruit. There are apples that have an aftertaste of pears, citrus cinnamon, cloves, coconut, strawberries, grapes and even pineapple!

2. The apple tree originated in an area between the Caspian and the Black Sea.

Hope you all enjoyed these apple facts. emoticon

    That is too darn spooky about Oil Storm. I'll have to watch it. Just before that storm I walked into a local store and my hair stood up on end. I asked the register person if anything unusual just happened. He said yes, the President was in town to go up to the new ski lodge and the SS (secret service) had just left with a whole lot of food. I got instantly enraged! I thought to myself "on vacation AGAIN!" He needs to be in Washington. I didn't know why I felt this way but then Katrina hit. Sad time.

Thanks for all the facts on apples. I feel much more educated than before.

Hugs

    I loved the first one - I drove in a fog like that once (not very long , I pulled over and waited it out)

I've been waiting for a super volcano to erupt - they've been in fiction, and serious reporting about the giant caldera (I think that's right) in Yellowstone.
