According to a recent study pandas may not be as solitary as people tend to think. They may be actually quite social and friendly to each other, traveling to different places together to find the best bamboo.

I learned that Tara Reid, who has a rep for being a blonde stereotype, actually believed that a whale shark is what you get when a whale and a shark have sex. :lol:

It was on WatchMojo.com where they had a top 10 list of the dumbest things celebrities have said (excluding politicians and racial slurs), and she thought a whale shark is a cross-breed of a whale and a shark, and not the name of a gigantic shark, the biggest fish in the world.

So much so that I locked the car and almost walked away from the car when it was still turned on. That's power button is messing me up.

I learned that Americans refer to a banana skin as a banana peel.

And that very few, if any, Portuguese or Brazilian cities begin with the letter 'N'.
