Did you know... that kangaroos use their tails for balance whilst hopping? So if you elevate their tail, they would have no balance and fall over.

Fact of the Day - COMIC BOOKS

 

Did you know... that Donald Duck comics were banned from Finland because he doesn't wear pants?  

 

Sorry for the off topic but that is not entirely true . Aku Ankka ( finnish for Disney Comics ) is one of the best selling weekly magazine in Finland for over a half a century . The story is an exageration of the media because in 1977 a councilman proposed disontinuing the founds to youth centers to buy the comic magazine because of the city's financial problems . Don Rosa ( legendary writer and illustrator known for his stories about Scrooge and Donald Duck etc. )  attends cons every year in Finland and he is treated like royalty . Sorry again about the off topic !

It's not off topic.  It's good to know when I get something wrong.  And it's good to learn something new as well! ;)
