    A recent purchase from Amazon included two cards with "Fun Trivia" on them (completely unrelated to the product):

    - Hummingbirds can fly backwards.
    - A tiger's skin is striped, like its fur.
    - Fingernails grow four times faster than your toenails
    - Water covers about 70% of the Earth.
    - Asia is the largest continent on Earth by size.
    - A shark doesn't contain any bones in its body.
    - On average your heat beats about 115,000 times a day.
    - Over one million Earths could fit inside the sun.
    - A bolt of lightning is five times hotter than the sun.
    - Caterpillars have 12 eyes!
    - A hippopotamus can run faster than a human
    - Kangaroos can't walk backwards.
    - Barbie doll's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts.
    - Bats are the only mammal that can fly.
    - Octopuses have three hearts.
    - Frogs drink water through their skin.


    Some of these I've just heard before (bolt of lightning temperature)
    Some of these I already knew (have lots of hummingbirds here)
    Others seemed fishy & had to Google (sharks don't have bones, it's true)


    ... I'm not a doctor but I'm losing my patience
