A few days ago I shared five fun facts for the day. I found them all very interesting. I enjoy reading about things I never think of sometimes. So I found five more fun facts to share with you: When you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red. A bolt of lightning is six times hotter than the sun. When a person cries and the first drop of tears come from the right eye, it is happiness. if it from left eye, it is pain. (Really?) Only 2% of Earth population naturally has green eyes. Your nose can remember 50,000 different scents. I try feeing my brain this type of food often, it needs all the help it can get. Enjoy your day everyone. Plans?

How do they KNOW that the stomach lining turns red as well?

How do "they" know any of these things. No idea but something to ponder.

I thought these were all interesting. Not sure about the one about the tzars. But it is an article I read. Glad you saw the dragonflies and hummers. I rarely see dragonflies but hummers every day.

The tears thing was new to me. I believe that my nose can remember 50,000 scents. It's very sensitive.

I am still not sure i believe that one, if it is true, another amazing fact of the human body. Funny, same here with my nose.
