Did You Know - Not Another Continuation!

Here goes another blog in my "Did You Know?" series. I hope I did not bore you to death yet with this series. LOL.

Did You Know Series :-

1. Did You Know?

2. Did You Know - Continuation

3. Did You Know - Another Continuation

Did you know?

1. Lobsters are immortal 

I have came across this fact when I was researching for my blog Did You Know - Continuation. Did you know that a lobster can replace any of its body parts which make it immortal? LOL. Not really immortal, but it can grows to be 100 years old.  If a lobster lost its eyes, it can regenerate it. In fact, a lobster can regenerate its own legs, claws and antenna. A lobster can amputate its own legs to escape danger.Please read facts about lobster in this article.

2. Eureka Moment

The word "eureka - /yo͝oˈrēkə/"- which means a cry of joy or satisfaction when someone discovers something which came from Greek word which also meant "I have found it". Eureka moment is always associated with Archimedes, the  Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. It was said that while having his bath, suddenly Archimedes had his eureka moment about volume of water which plagued him for sometimes, and he leapt from his bath naked and ran through Syracuse naked and crying "Eureka".

3. The expression of blue blood

The "blue blood" expression can bring the meanings of "the blood that which flows in the veins of old and aristocratic families". It can also refers to the fair skin of upper classes. It also suggested a complete lack of tan, the sign of leisure/upper class who does not have to work under the sun. It was originated from the Spanish word "sangre azul" which literally translated as "blue blood". It was attributed to the Spanish oldest and proudest families, the Castile, who claimed never to be intermarried with other races at that time such as Moors, Jews or others. 

4. Yellow tennis balls

Even though tennis balls are predominantly fluorescence yellow in colour, actually in fact it can be of any colours. However, only yellow and white are the only colours approved by International Tennis Federation (ITF) and United State Tennis Association (USTA). Did you know that in 1972, the first yellow tennis ball was first introduced when it was found out that they are more visible on colour television. LOL. There was nothing too fancy or scientific about it.

Okay, that is all at the moment. Feel free to add.

Yeaa Ha .. LOL. I really love to call your nick like that. :-D

Thank you for reading. I think you didn't realise that there's an exclamation point at the end of Not Another Continuation!. LOL. I was trying to image the first reaction by members in here when they see "Did You Know". LOL

Let me illustrate to you. Lets say, you have read all the previous Did You Know blogs, and think happily, "ahhh .. Noas is not going to write another one". But suddenly, lo and behold, when you come, you see "Did You Know" as a title. Your first reaction would be "Not Another Continuation!". LOL

Did I explained to you clearly? hehhehehehehe...
