Eureka!

Friday, September 7, 2007

I was reading my other blog and came across a eureka post last year. Let me just share it with everyone:
  • Cellular phone signals DO NOT interfere with air control signals. Although Federal law states that it's forbidden to use any cellular phone on an airplane for the very reason that it might cause interference with the air control frequencies, the Mythbusters have proven this wrong. Cellular signals travel through a different frequency. The danger though, is that new phones are being developed everyday, and you'll never know when someone invents a phone that travels the same frequency as that of radio waves. (Source: Mythbusters)
  • The scientific name of a fart is actually a FLATUS. (Source: Mythbusters)
  • Flying a kite with a key on the far end of the string on a normal day (like Ben Franklin's experiment) will still cause some voltage to build up on the string and the key up to 20,000 volts. This voltage, though, is not strong enough to ignite sparks. A lightning strike on the kite will, however, fry the person if he touches the key on the far end of the string. (Source: Mythbusters)
  • Bees can produce 3x the amount of honey that they need. They can also sting just once in their lives, because as soon as they sting someone or something, they leave the tiny needles on their back. Those needles are actually vital organs, which means every sting causes them to lose a vital part of their bodies. And soon after that, they die. (Source: Inquiring minds)
