Today is National Trivia Day. It’s a day to impress (and stump) your friends and family with all the cool facts you know. Reading chickaDEE is a great place to start. For instance, DID YOU KNOW that…
… the most expensive painting ever sold went for a price tag of $140 million dollars? The painting is called Number 5 and was painted by an artist named Jackson Pollack.
… some Japanese coins have holes in the middle of them. That’s because a long time ago (and before wallets!), people in Japan would thread their coins onto a string and tie it around their necks for safekeeping.
… salmon can smell its way from the ocean all the way back to the river it was born!
… a special algae has turned white snow on a California mountaintop pink. Locals call it “watermelon snow” because it also smells like fruit!
… cats aren’t the only animals that clean themselves with their spit. Rats clean themselves at least six times a day using their own saliva.
