Fun Facts.. & an Opinion or Two.

1.) 60 million years ago there was a super giant monster snake that roamed the Earth. Titanoboa: Weighing in at 2500 pounds & 48 feet long. (Whaaaa? Yeah, you read that right.)

2.) 2 words. 1 animal. Think respiratory muscle paralysis. — Cone Snail! — 1 piece of advice. Whatever you do, don’t touch it! — Should you vacation in Australia… don’t touch it! Lol.

3.) In fact, don’t touch anything in the ocean. Nothing at all. Stay away. It’s all dangerous. (Okay that one is an opinion, lol.) —- BUT should you venture into the ocean & touch things or if things in the ocean touch you.. & it then proves to be rather painful… you should seek help from a medical professional. Lol! — I tried to warn you, I did all I could. 😉

4.) Chernobyl. The residents of Pripyat had no idea what was going on until like 36 to 48 hours or so after the accident. By then, tons of them were already feeling the effects of the radiation. — Seriously, when there has been a nuclear disaster, let’s not take our time informing the folks that are being contaminated by it. (That last part is an opinion, Lol, but a good one!)

5.) You probably shouldn’t live very close to a nuclear plant. That could very well be a disaster waiting to happen. Get far, far away. Far away. & once you’ve gotten far away…. go a little further. Lol. & just keep going. If you’ve gone that far & you pass by another one… keep going. Go passed that one & get further away. 😉 — Seriously… this is good advice, lol!

6.) Mudskippers. Coolest fish ever. They can breathe through their skin. They flip around in the mud. & they’re kind of aggressive & a little moody. They like to throw down with each other. — It’s pretty funny.

7.) Antarctica. There are these little research communities up there. Some people stay all year, through all the seasons. They hire people to work during the summer months… & a lot of those guys only stay through the summer because winters are so rough. — They even have like little grocery stores & all sorts of little things. They’re practically in their own little world, cut off from the rest of civilization. — & when they have winter storms, the ice comes like 5 or 6 feet inside their doors & they have to chip it away after the storm is over. — Pretty cool! 🙂

 

In case you guys haven’t noticed…. I watch a lot of documentaries. 😉

My blog is titled "A Leap of Faith," simply because for me that is what this is. -- I am extremely shy & terrified of failure... but just like everyone else, I have big dreams. --- I have a passion for the written word, for every story told, & for getting lost in novels. Certainly not the easiest world to go out into... especially not for someone so afraid of failure that trying sometimes doesn't seem worth it. -- This blog is just one small step in the right direction! A way to push myself out into the world & stop being so afraid. -- So here's to writing about life, the aspiring writer's journey, & everything in between. Oh, & of course, my leap of faith! :) -Heather.
