Hello world, here we at another Monday so here are another few facts.

Light can travel around the Earth at its equator seven and a half times in one second.

Earth’s oceans are an average of two miles deep

On his way home to visit his parents a college student fell between two trains at the station in Jersey City, New Jersey and was rescued by an actor on his way to visit a sister in Philadelphia. The student was Robert Lincoln heading to Washington, the actor was Edwin Booth the brother of the man who would murder the students father, President Abraham Lincoln.

Before ancient surgeons made their first incision, they would sometimes cover their patients with wet clay. They realised that sick people were often hot around the part of them that was causing trouble, as bodies heat up when they fight off diseases. When surgeons smeared clay they found it often dried quickest over the poorly body parts, thus giving them an idea where they should do their work.

Every time you lick a stamp, you’re consuming one tenth of a calorie.
