Grapes are berries. Strawberries are not.

Bananas, avocados, and pumpkins are all berries, while cherries, blackberries, and mulberries are not. smile.gif

To hypnotize a chicken:

~ Catch one

~ Pick it up, calm it down, put it back on the ground

~ Push their head down until their beak is on the ground

~ Move your finger away from them, in the direction of their beak, until it's out of their eyesight

~ Laugh as they sit there and do nothing but stare at the ground

The Tawny frogmouth's tongue will grow back if it is torn off.

 

I was quite amazed at that one, and it also says when male frogmouths fight, their aim is to tear each other's tongue's off.... O_o
