You're gonna say "I didn't know that!" at least 5 times. Really neat stuff here :


Alaska



More than half of the coastline of the entire

United States is in Alaska.





Amazon



The Amazon rain forest produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen supply


The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic Ocean that, more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the river, one can dip fresh water out of the ocean. The volume of water in the Amazon river is greater than the next eight largest rivers in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers in the United States.




Antarctica



Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert; the average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, ice.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.




Brazil


Brazil got its name from the nut, not the other way around.





Canada



Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Canada is an Indian word meaning 'Big Village'.




Chicago



Next to Warsaw, Chicago has the largest

Polish population in the world.



Detroit


Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the designation M-1, so named because it was the first paved road anywhere.

Damascus, Syria



Damascus, Syria, was flourishing a couple of thousand years before Rome was founded in 753 BC making it the oldest continuously inhabited city in existence.




Istanbul, Turkey


Istanbul, Turkey, is the only city in the world
located on two continents.




Los Angeles


The full name of Los Angeles is: l Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula

-- and can be abbreviated to 3.63% of its size: L.A.




New York City


The term 'The Big Apple' was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930s who used the slang expression 'apple' for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City Is to play the big time - The Big Apple.

There are more Irish in New York City 
than in Dublin, Ireland;
more Italians in New York City
than in Rome, Italy;
and more Jews in New York City
than in Tel Aviv, Israel .





Ohio


There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio,

every one is man-made.




Pitcairn Island


The smallest island with country status is Pitcairn
in Polynesia, at just 1.75 sq. miles/4,53 sq Km.



Rome


The first city to reach a population of 1 million people
was Rome, Italy (in 133 B.C.)


There is a city called Rome on every continent.



Siberia


Siberia contains more than 25% of the world's forests.




S.M.O.M.



The actual smallest sovereign entity in the world
Is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta S.M.O.M).
It is located in the city of Rome, Italy, and has an area of two tennis courts. And, as of 2001, has a population of 80, 20 less people than the Vatican.
It is a sovereign entity under international law,
just as the Vatican is.





Sahara Desert

In the Sahara Desert, there is a town named Tidikelt, Algeria, that did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically, though, the driest place on Earth
is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island.
There has been no rainfall there for two million years



Spain


Spain literally means 'the land of rabbits'.




St. Paul, Minnesota


St. Paul , Minnesota , was originally called Pig's Eye
after a man named Pierre 'Pig's Eye' Parrant who set up the first business there.




Russia


The deepest hole ever drilled by man is the Kola Superdeep Borehole, in Russia. It reached a depth of 12,261 meters (about 40,226 feet or 7.62 miles.) It was drilled for scientific research and gave up some unexpected discoveries, one of which was a huge deposit of hydrogen - so massive that the mud coming from the hole was boiling with it.




United States


The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.




Waterfalls


The water of Angel Falls (the world's highest) in Venezuela drops 3,212 feet (979 meters.) They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls .

I have always said, you should learn something new every day. Unfortunately, many of us are at that age where what we learn today, we forget tomorrow.


But, give it a shot anyway.

 Live Long And Prosper!!
