Interesting facts

Hurray for StumbleUpon! Which linked me to unnecessary knowledge which has such fascinating facts as:

  • The name of all continents in the world end with the same letter that they start with.
  • A snail can crawl across a razor blade without getting injured. This is possible because they excrete a slime that protects them.
  • Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every 2 weeks otherwise it will digest itself.
  • Fictional/horror writer Stephen King sleeps with a nearby light on to calm his fear of the dark.
