Have you ever wondered why fire trucks are red?
It’s because when they were originally painted, red was the cheapest color they had!
I guess red stuck as the color for awhile, because fire trucks are still red today!
Do you like fire trucks? Do you want to be a firefighter when you grow up?
Mexico City is slowwwwlllllyyyy sinking.
In the last 100 years, Mexico City has sunk 26 feet!
That’s amazing! Maybe there is quicksand under Mexico City!
Want a can of worms? Just head over to the vending machine!
It’s totally true: You can find worms in vending machines in Japan!
Does this make you want to move to Japan? Or does it make you want to stay away from Japan?!
What would you use the worms for?
What’s a quindem? A quindem is a five-seat bicycle!
Not that you would ever see a quindem. Or, rather, ride in a quindem!
Would you ever want to ride in a five-seat bicycle?
They can’t stick their tongue out at all!
Actually, it’s impossible for them to stick their tongues out. I guess they aren’t like their friend the frogs, who sticks their tongue out all the time! :)
Extra credit if you have a turtle as a pet! Do you?
Traffic jams are a pain. If you are late, traffic jams make you a lot more late.
But here’s a traffic jam you wouldn’t want to get stuck in: In China, there was a traffic jam that lasted for MORE than a WEEK!
Arg! Then you would be a whole week late for school!
Do you have a lot of traffic jams where you live?
Is your egg rotten? (ew!) To test it, put it in a bowl of water. If it floats, it’s a rotten old egg.
It’s scientifically proven that rotten eggs float!
And, of course, regular eggs don’t.
Do you like eggs? In which way? (Hard-boiled? Fried? Scrambled?)
Have you ever wondered if a fish was male or female? Well, once you figure it out, the fish can change gender the next day!
Some fish can change from male to female and then back to male…and then do it all over again!
So who knows? Maybe the fish you caught today was a girl, but then decided to become a boy. Weird!
Do you like fishing?
Socks can be made from cotton, polyester, or even wool…But have you ever heard of socks made from bamboo?!
But there is such a sock! You can buy socks that are made from bamboo.
I wonder how they would feel on your feet!
What type of socks are you wearing right now?
Wait a second. Was that just a rat?
Rats appear to laugh when tickled! It’s true! (Not that you would want to tickle a rat…)
So the next time you hear laughter, look around for laughing rats. :)
Do you think rats are cute or just plain disgusting?
