Dogs interpret body language and tone of voice more than "smelling" fear.

Bees definitely smell--pheromones are a critical element of their society, but they probably can't detect human fear. Never swat at bee or wasp, though.

Kangaroos can definitely jump without their tail on the ground. The big red ones can hit 30 mph, and use their tails to balance as they do their spring-loaded leaping.

Just doing a little mythbusting

The name "Kangaroo" comes from an Aboriginal phrase. When the White men pointed at a kangaroo, the Aborigines would say "kangaroo" which means "There it goes"!

The incidence of whorls in Australian aboriginal fingerprint patterns is >75%. Whorls are relatively uncommon worldwide (<25%). Great word. Check your fingers.

human tonsels are as bouncy as a super ball for 30 minites after they are removed.

The tallest man in the world ever on record was 8ft 11inches

I love these things.

For many hundreds of meters, you can hear the clicking noise that caribous' leg tendons make as they walk in a herd.

There are pink colored freshwater dolphins in the Amazon River and it's tributaries. Most native tribes have always considered them sacred (and also seducers of women).

I=E/R

I = amperage
E = electromotive force (voltage)
R = resistance (in olms)

A totally useless fact, unless you're an electrician - then it's totally indespensable.

Cheers,
Scot.

P.S. I can't beleive I read this whole thread!

Ohm's law is pretty useless if you're an electrician hunting pink dolphins on the Amazon with a sumo wiper.

PV=nRT might help, though.
