^ So did I...It's hard to hold a slippery squirming hamster in the shower, though. I give my dog showers, but I don't shower with her.

If you multiply 526,315,789,473,684,210 with _any_ number you will always find the original number in the result!

This not only not unexplained, it is untrue. Try multiplying it by 19, for example. The explanation can be found here: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/CyclicNumber.html

Iguanas, koalas and Komodo dragons all have two penises (Asterix's note: actually it's one, split in two parts, in the shape of letter Y. This is called hemipenes)

Lucky buggers.

Why would not breeding cause the female ferret to die? Would her homromes be that intense?

Maybe they should call a koala...

The phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.

Also untrue, as even the most cursory google search reveals.

Why and how is this possible?

Hey you guys. I did a search and answered my own question. I'm just posting it here in case you find it interesting......

http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/apr2001/987551549.As.r.html

This is a fallacy. There was, in fact, a full moon in February, 1865. It occurred on 1865 February 10 at 16:27 UTC.

The specific chart is the USNO 1865 Moon Phases document.

This is not to say, however, that it is impossible for February to miss the full phase. The moon phases cycle every 29.5 days. Februrary, with 28 days (and 29 on a leap year), does miss a phase periodically.

In fact 1866, 1885, 1915, 1934, 1961 did not have a full phase.

In 1972, a leap year, the full moon occurred on 02/29 at 03:12 UTC.

As recently as 1999, there was no full moon during February... 1999 Moon Phase.

About that facts page, the one about the duck's echo has been debunked, and the one about hurricanes and nukes is wrong.
