31. For the 21st, some is ACTUALLY BUILDING Noah's ark.


32. Originally bubble wrap was conceived as a wallpaper. Since that did not work out, it was used as a wrapping material. Every year enough bubble wrap is made to stretch it all the way to moon and back. 

33. Remarkably, there exist simple scaling laws relating animal metabolism to body mass. Larger animals live longer; but they also metabolize slower, as manifested in slower heart rates. These effects cancel out, so that animals from shrews to blue whales have lifespans with just about equal number of heartbeats — about one and a half billion, if you simply must be precise. In that very real sense, all animal species experience “the same amount of time.” 

34. Our human senses for sound (as well as light) are tuned for a wide range of values, hence the logarithmic scales we use for measurement 

35. Decibels are measured on a logarithmic scale -- every 3 dB is a doubling of the intensity of sound saves. Restaurant conversation is about 60 dB, a motorcycle (at 25 ft) is 90 dB, airplanes at takeoff are 110 dB.
