What do you consider to be the coolest thing you know??? The coolest thing I know is that on his last mission to the moon astronaut Eugene Cernan (supposedly) wrote his daughter's initials in the moon dust. There is a slight bit of speculation as to if it's really true, but if so, I think that's totally cool! What do Sploofus natives know that's cool??? Cathy

I think it's cool that 40% of Scots carry the gene for red hair, which is down to 2% in the rest of the world.

By far the coolest:

Sharing a 3-way chat'n'webcam session between Australia (me), Alaska (my guy), and Oregon (my guy's son)...and getting to watch my guy's face as he got to see his baby grand-daughter in Oregon on webcam a couple of years back.

I the technology that enabled us to do that!

Coolest thing I when you daughter fakes a "virus" for 2 months...if you take her to the doctor and he says "go get a blood sample"...the "virus" mysteriously disappears...

Other cool things...husbands believe that the laundry makes it into the hamper all by itself...if you feed a dog chocolate there are disasterous side-effects...the reason people have "kids" birthday parties is so they know there are worse behaved children than their own...a kegerator is the world's greatest invention.

And Finally...coolest thing I know...Jon Bon Jovi loves me (he doesn't know it yet...but he will)

Coolest thing I know happened a couple of days ago, when my baby grandson, who never calls me anything, looked at me and said "Grandma, sit here".

I can't think of the coolest thing I know.

I know I have a soulmate. That's pretty cool.

I know that I have a flag in a box in one of my drawers that was flown over the capitol on my birthday at the request of a U.S. Senator, and then mailed to me from the White House. And no, it wasn't THAT U.S. Senator.

I know how to tell you the age of a tree by using a bore. It goes straight into the tree in towards the middle and draws out a piece of the tree that looks like a long straw. That "straw" shows you all the rings of the tree. Each ring equals approximately a year of growth. This process doesn't damage the tree, BTW.

I know that if you take a fish tank full of water, and aim a laser beam into the tank, and then pull a plug towards the bottom of the tank and let it drain into a bucket, the laser light will follow the water stream down into the bucket rather than continuing on through the tank. Also cool.

I'm tired now.

The coolest thing to me is looking at my nieces and nephew and seeing little bits of myself in them. Can't imagine what it must be like to look at your own kid and see it.

The coolest thing I know is that twin fawns love to romp and chase each other while their mother nibbles on grass.

Alright, here goes, Coolest "shareable" things I know

I think it's cool that when practicing or rehearsing things (sports, tasks, events) in your mind in as much detail as possible (sounds, smells, other sensations) your mind actually cannot tell you haven't actually "done" this thing. You can gain a certain mastery of a thing just in your head. Athletes improve their performances this way all the time.

I know where to look in plays and myths to find the clues of a switch from matriarchy to patriarchy in ancient Greek society.

You may think I'm crazy (again!!!!) but I know there is an Afterlife,
and that our Loved Ones are waiting for us there.......
I know this because I have been there. I was SO HAPPY to be there.
There was a room full of people who were waiting for me "in the light"
However, I had a new baby....and as soon as I realized who all the people
were - and that they were all dead - I knew where I was, and pleaded
to come back to care for my son.
That is why I am as free as a bird, and have NEVER feared Death....

That is beautiful Rowlanda! I have seen stories of that on TV, but have never really heard anyone say it. It must be a comfort to know!

The first thing I thought of when you asked for something "cool" that I know was that
-40 degrees Fahrenheit equals -40 degrees Celsius. That is the only temperature where the two scales measure the same. That's pretty cool.

That's not COOL....It's B***** any language!!!!
I've lived in Calgary where it was -40* for two weeks in the winter.
The engine blocks on cars froze: the moisture in my nose froze into
little ice balls, and stopped me breathing: My eyes watered constantly.
The only one that was HAPPY was my dog who insisted on taking her usual walk,
and was wearing her usual fur coat!!!!

My favorite fact is this:

With current technology, our scientists can see a number of stars equal to ten times all the grains of sand on all the world's beaches and deserts.

Consider all the grains in one handful of sand......

My son's math teacher had this posted in his classroom - it really struck a chord with me (as I am always telling my acting students that "'Good enough' is NOT good enough!":

"Math in REAL LIFE"
If 99.9% is good enough, then
* 2 million documents will be lost by the IRS this year
* 22,000 checks will be deducted from the wrong bank accounts in the next 60 minutes
* 1,314 phone calls will be misplaced by telecommunication services every minute
* 2 planes landing daily at O'Haren's International Airport in Chicago
* 291 pacemaker operations will be performed incorrectly this year
* 20,000 incorrect drug prescriptions will be written in the next 12 months
* In the next 12 months, 2,488,200 books would be shipped with the wrong cover.
* One of three sections would be missing from 3,056 copies of tomorrow’s Wall Street Journal.
* Incorrect cardholder information would appear on the magnetic strips of 880,000 credit cards in circulation.
* Some $762 million would be spent in the next 12 months on tapes and compact discs that will not play.
* 12 babies will be given to the wrong parents each day
