After all, sharing is caring

Sometimes it need not be funny at all.

Google Quantum Algorithm :

-Several reports suggest that in the past three years Google has developed a quantum algorithm that is capable of automatically recognizing and sorting objects from videos or still images. This has been achieved by using physics that exists at the subatomic level. Several research teams have been working on the development of quantum processors that can store data as quantum bits.

This shouldn't be new if you have seen the movie "Social Network"

-Facebook was originally named TheFaceBook and it was developed by Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg. The first use of the FaceBook was on the Harvard campus and it was limited only to Harvard students. Soon the FaceBook spread like wild fire around the other major U.S. Universities. Mark Zuckerberg dropped the Harvard and pursued his facebook dream to become one of the 4th most-trafficked websites.

-The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

-Yahoo the complex internet organism has complicated name. Word "Yahoo" is shortcut for "Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle". It was coined by PhD candidates at Stanford University

Re: Funny Fact of the day - September 22nd, 2011

How many litters does a female Armadillo produce each year?
-1 litter
-2 litters
-3 litters

ANSWER: The female produces only one litter each year in March or April, after a 150-day gestation period. The litter always consists of quadruplets of the same sex, as they are derived from a single egg.

How much neurotoxin does each poison dart frog produce?
-Enough to kill 1 human
-Enough to kill 4 humans
-Enough to kill 10 humans

ANSWER: These pint sized frogs aren't for kissing. Their backs ooze a slimy neurotoxin that is meant to keep predators away. Each frog produces enough of the toxin to kill 10 humans. See more amazing information on Live Science's "Top 10 Deadliest Animals" in our "Animal Facts" section on this website.

Hummingbirds are the smallest birds - so tiny that one of their enemies is an insect, the praying mantis. The hummingbird is the only bird that can hover and fly straight up, down, or backward - and it is one of the only birds that cannot walk!
In captivity, pigeons commonly live up to 15 years and sometimes longer. In urban populations, however, pigeons seldom live more than 3 or 4 years. Natural mortality factors, such as predation by mammals and other birds, diseases, and stress due to lack of food and water, reduce pigeon populations by approximately 30%u0025 annually.

Not every elephant is as friendly as Dumbo. Elephants kill more than 500 people a year worldwide. African elephants generally weigh in around 16,000 pounds - all the better to stomp you with - not to mention their sharp tusks.
