    Useless Trivia Pt. 2

    1. The sun isn't round. It is flattened on top and the bottom.
    2. A bucket filled with earth would weigh about 5 times moer than the same bucket filled with the substance of the sun. However, the force of gravity is so much greater on the Sun that a man weighing 150 pounds on our planet would weigh 2 tons on the sun.
    3. The Harpy Eagle's talons are three times more powerful than a Rottweilers jaws.
    4. Their are more mesquitos in Houston than their are people in the world.
    5. A day on the planet Mercury is twice as long as its year. Mercury rotates very slowly but revolves around the sun in slightly less than 88 days.
    6. A teaspoon of neutron star material weighs about 110 million tons.
    7. A typical nova explosion releases about as much energy as the Sun emits in 10,000 years, or as much as in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 nuclear bombs.
    8. A space vehicle must move at a rate of at least 7 miles per second to escape Earth's gravitational pull. This equivilent to going from New York to Philadelphea in about 20 seconds.
    9. After his 1997 ear-biting attack on Evander Holyfield, the Hollywood Wax Museum moved boxer Mike Tyson's figure to the Chamber of Horrors-next to the figure of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
    10. According to manufacturer Spalding, the average lifespan of an NBA basketball is 10,000 bounces.
