Five Crazy Facts

Today I looked up 'crazy facts' to get a new window view of the world.  One has to scroll through the strange, the unpleasant, the macabre and then there are the ones that impress as crazy facts:

1. The longest time between two twins being born is 87 days.

10. Light doesn’t necessarily travel at the speed of light. The slowest we’ve ever recorded light moving at is 38 mph.

26. Powerful earthquakes can permanently shorten the length of Earth’s day, by moving the spin of the Earth’s axis. The 2011 Japan earthquake knocked 1.8 microseconds off our days. The 2004 Sumatra quake cost us around 6.8 microseconds.

27. The first American film to show a toilet being flushed on screen was Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho

28. Melting glaciers and icebergs make a distinctive fizzing noise known as “bergy seltzer”.
