We are currently in an Ice Age that began over 2.5 million years ago. We are in an inter-glacial period which means we are experiencing above average temperatures. Scientists don't know if the green house effect will put us in a glacial period or take us out of the Ice Age.

About 3% of the world's water is fresh and 21% of it is in the Great Lakes.

Koala's are not bears. They are marsupials and common to marsupials the males have a double pronged penis and females two vaginas; one for reproduction and the other for urinating.

The world's most deadliest creature (not animal) is the mosquito. It's responsible for millions of deaths due to disease transmission.

Only female mosquitoes feed on blood which is used as a protein source for the eggs. Males feed on nectar and plant juices.

If you want to go to Hell you have two choices: you can go to the Cayman Islands (in the Caribbean) or you can go to Michigan (about an hour west of Detroit). However, only one Hell will likely freeze over.
