This is a thread for posting fun (and also NOT so fun) facts! Anything you find interesting that isn't common knowledge is to be posted here. I'm going to try to do 1 a day, at the least, so feel free to discuss them or maybe add your own 2 cents to the Fun Fact Donation Bin! :D Hope to enlighten you!

Fact 1
When a dog barks, their top jaw moves, whereas humans and cats (for example) have mobile bottom jaws. That's why when you see a dog barking, sometimes, they seem to bounce a bit. Their eyes are bouncing, so it feels more natural to move their bodies, too!

Sub factoid: Yawning is contagious...literally. With most dogs, if you hold your mouth open and get them to stare at it, there is a slight chance that they'll yawn. People are the same way!

=D Great thread!

Fun Fact Two:

The ability to drink dairy milk past infancy is actually a mutation in the human body. Meaning the people who are lactose intolerant are the normal ones. x'D

Alright, let's keep it intellectual here, Redfive! I don't want this taken out of discussion by just posting a bunch of random facts. We're here to share AND discuss. Let's put something REALLY worthwhile on the plate.

Fact 6

(Today's topic is lefties. I decided to add a daily topic so we can discuss and share facts about certain things)
Lefties are the only majorminority that cannot be considered a minority because they have no voice or power. Their ratio to righties is 1:10.

Another fun fact: That very same voice actor was also the second black ranger in the original power rangers.

Johnny Bosch. That's his name. He gets into all kinds of shows and games. He's the main character of Persona 4's voice, as well as Shinjiro from Sakura Wars: So Long, my Love.
Wait, Johnny Bosch was the voice for Yu Narukami from Persona 4?! O_O I didn't know that! Now, I have more respect for him.

Adding to the topic of facts about lefties.

On the CBS Primetime Cop Procedural Show, Criminal Minds, Aaron Hotchner is a leftie, as well as the man who portrays him in the show, Thomas Gibson.
