dgrimm60

Answer: Starfish are one of the most beautiful looking animals in the vast ocean. They have a surprisingly unusual anatomy, with no brain or blood. Seawater is pumped throughout their body as a replacement for blood, with the water delivering key nutrients to the starfish. Starfish may have no brain, but they are certainly not fools! They have a complex nervous system with a nerve ring around the mouth and a radial nerve running along the region of each arm. This nervous system helps them gather information, make decisions, and survive.

Obelus

OBELUS

Answer: An obelus ( ÷ ) is a symbol consisting of a short horizontal line with a dot above and another dot below. In mathematics it is mainly used to represent the mathematical operation of division. It is therefore commonly called the division sign. The word "obelus" comes the Ancient Greek word for a sharpened stick, or pointed pillar. The obelus was first used as a symbol for division in 1659 in the algebra book Teutsche Algebra by Johann Rahn. It is believed that John Pell, who edited the book, is responsible for this use of the symbol.

Which country has more than 300,000 bomb shelters?

Switzerland

SWITZERLAND

Answer: At one point, Switzerland had an estimated 300,000 bomb shelters, with enough space to provide shelter for all of its eight million residents. The bunkers were a way for the Swiss government to protect its citizens against a possible attack during World War II. By 1963, Swiss law required that all new buildings provide protective shelters, resulting in a country pockmarked with shelters. Today, bunkers are still required by Swiss law, though members of the parliament have tried (and failed) to overturn the law.

COW

Answer: In all of history, no cow is more infamous than Mrs. O'Leary's. On this day in 1871, the Great Chicago Fire began when a fire broke out in the barn behind the home of Patrick and Catherine O'Leary. Legend has it, their cow kicked over a kerosene lamp during milking, setting fire to the O'Leary barn. At least 300 people were dead, 17,450 buildings were destroyed, and 100,000 people were homeless. The fire was one of the most spectacular events of the nineteenth century, and it is recognized as a major milestone in the city's history.
