Reply:interesting to know
Reply:Well, one or two are frankly not true:

For example:

Sloths, hippos and rhinos are all creatures which cannot jump.

Polar bears are ambidextrous - there is no proof that they are left handed - animals which HAVE been proven predominantly 'southpaw' are badgers, lemurs and parrots.

A cockroach can actually live a month with no head in cold conditions.

The Speaker in the House of Commons certainly CAN speak - listen to the live coverage and the person going 'order. order' is the Speaker. he also names the members who are next to aprticipate in the debate and disciplines unruly members. What he is not allowed to do is participate in debates.

There are a lot more than 4 words that end -dous... quite a lot to descrive substances which have a particular element in them for example iodous, iridous, vanadous, palladous... also the suffix 'podous' describes creature with sertain kinds of feet eg cephalapodous.

A number of other ones above, such as the lifespan of a dragon fly fall under the 'yeah, so what?' category.

But yeah, not a bad try overall... but just one thing to note 'Weird' is one of the English words which does not conform to the 'I before E except after C' rule....


Boxermom: 'Dangerous', I think you will find, ends in '-rous' (as do about a thousand other words) not '-dous'
Reply:Some good ones there!!! Well done.
Reply:good one! knew some of them before but most pf them are really interesting...i thought the strongest muscle in your body was your jaw muscle and thats why it hurts so much when you bite your tongue...maybe i am wrong...anyway that was really good...
Reply:Wow what can I say. Amazing.
Reply:what about dangerous? so its 5 words!!!
Reply:very interesting, not that funny. star for you tho!

Reply:Some pretty amazing facts there but...

the speaker in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords CAN speak but they are not allowed to join in the debate. It is their job the keep everybody in line. They can usually heard shouting 'order,order' when everyone starts shouting!
Reply:Cool some good facts i never knew there...!
