Gallium is a metal that melts in your hand.
It is used in special semiconductors as well as low temperature melting metal alloys.

And speaking of Gallium.......... :o

Our brains take shortcuts. We don't actually see everything around us. Every play one of those "Find the differences" games with a simple picture? That's why you cant see all the differences at once.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

The German word for raccoon translates as "wash bear".

"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain

When Yellow Submarine was first shown on CBS, the scenes for Hey Bulldog and Northern Song were omitted.

In the 1950's you could buy a car with a factory installed record player.

A few months ago, it was learned that one of the astronauts on the ISS lost a tool bag during an EVA (possibly two bags). If you know when the ISS will pass over your location, the lost tool bag may be seen ten minutes sooner.
