Hello Miss Ale:

I cpuldnt read all the facts because I saw the amount of facts per number and how many numbers they were so I didnt even thought about reading everyone I read from page 1 to page 8. In the one's that I read they were all very good but one that really surprised me was:
Did you know that the Amazon rainforest produces half the world's oxygen supply.
For me its surprising because of all the jungles in the world there is one that gives the half of the oxygen the world needs and eventhou there are people that are cutting the amazon rainforest. And the other one was:
Did you know Monopoly is the most played board game in the world.
This fact really surprised me because I love Monopoly and know I know there are millions and millions of people that agrreb with me I feel a liitle bit common but also special. Some facts that were good and I didnt knew them and also they were a little it silly were:
Did you knowa group of frogs is called an army
Did you knowa group of rhinos is called a crash
Did you knowa group of kangaroos is called a mob
Did you knowa group of whales is called a pod
Did you knowa group of geese is called a gaggle
Did you knowa group of owls is called a parliament.

See you tommorow

The "Did you know" that catched more my atention was the one that said like this:
"DID YOU KNOW the word "STRENGTHS" is the longest word in the english language with just one vowel"?
It is in the 2nd line or the 2nd
"Did you know"
I never thought that that word would be the largest one in the whole english language, how interesting facts that you found Miss Ale!

.The Amazon rainforest produces half the world's oxygen supply

.The word 'Strengths' is the longest word in the English language with just one vowel

.111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321 (I had never noticed that, because I never did the multiplication)

.Hilton was the first international hotel

.The brand Nokia is named after a place in Southern Finland

.Monopoly is the most played board game in the world, (I love playing it!!)

.diamonds are the hardest natural substance

.Brazil is named after a tree

.Brazil covers 50% of the South American continent

.42% of men and women 25% don’t wash their hands after using a public toilet
