DID YOU KNOW??

 

 

More than half of the coastline of the entire United States is in

Alaska.

 

 

Detroit: Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the

designation M-1, named so because it was the first paved road

anywhere.

 

Amazon: The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic

Ocean that, more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the

river, one can dip fresh water out of the ocean. The volume of

water in the Amazon river is greater than the next eight largest

rivers in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers

in the United States.

 

Brazil: Brazil got its name from the nut, not the other way around.

 

Canada: Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined.

 

Ohio: There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio, every one is

manmade.

 

Antarctica: Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not

owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers

Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the

fresh water in the world. However, Antarctica is essentially a

desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches.

Although covered with ice, Antarctica is the driest place on the

planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.

 

& gt; Damascus, Syria: Damascus was flourishing a couple of thousand

years before Rome was founded in 753 BC, making it the oldest

continuously inhabited city in existence.

 

Rome, Italy: The first city to reach a population of 1 million

people was Rome, in 133 B.C. There is a city called Rome on every

continent.

 

Los Angeles: Los Angeles's full name is El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora

la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula - and can be abbreviated to

3.63% of its size: L.A. How many people in the world know this

factiod?

 

Siberia: Siberia contains more than 25% of the world's forests.

 

Sahara Desert: In the Sahara Desert, there is a town named Tidikelt, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years.

Technically though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of

the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for twomillion years.

Spain: Spain literally means 'the land of rabbits.'

 

United States: The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections

are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.
