Factoids from the continuum.

Just some facts from around the web:

Did you know that the average bedroom carpet has 45,729,034 fibers??

Did you know the price of one McDonald's value meal would feed eight families in Tibet??

Did you know that nearly 80% of colorblind men are also ambidextrous?

Did you know that as a Rough Rider, Teddy Roosevelt once shot his horse for looking at him "quite oddly"??

Did you know that Mother Goose is actually based on the axe-wielding prohibitionist Carrie Nation?

Did you know that Roseanne Barr studied classical voice for three semesters at Berklee School of Music?

Did you know that 1 in 3 adults has both male and female reproductive organs and does not know it??

Did you know that I'm making all this stuff up???

Hee hee.

Haha. This post was getting very interesting, I was ready to google all of those things to learn more!

Yes, I took that photo. It's getting colder and colder, and I am still holding onto to autumn. I wish all of my trees were still orange, and my hands were not numb =(

Wow! You really got me on that one, even though the carpet fiber factoid made me slightly suspicious. I know for a fact that my carpet has 4,998,776,554 fibers. I counted :)
