Wimbledon tennis balls are kept at 68 degrees Fahrenheit

The temperature of tennis balls affects how the ball bounces. At warmer temperatures, the gas molecules inside the ball expand making the ball bounce higher. A tennis ball at lower temperatures causes the molecules to shrink and the ball bounces lower. To make sure the best tennis balls are used, Wimbledon goes through over 50,000 tennis balls.

X-ray technology was discovered by accident (On November 8, 1895, Röntgen was experimenting with cathode rays to test a phenomenon of light found in an earlier experiment. Röntgen had set up a florescent screen painted with barium platinocyanide and a Crookes tube, wrapped in black cardboard to cover its florescence - when, all of a sudden, he noticed a green glow about a meter away. The cathode rays should not have been able to reach the screen, but they did. Even when Röntgen placed carbon paper or a piece of wood between the Crookes tube and the screen, the screen still glowed. He had discovered a new form of electromagnetic radiation - but because he did not know what it was, he simply called it "X.")

I read that about X-rays one time when I was looking for something for another topic in this game.

Yellow mustard isn't naturally yellow. Mustard seeds are actually a brownish-gray color. The addition of turmeric gives it the bright yellow color. Yellow mustard wasn't a thing until 1904 when George French of the R.T. French Company experimented with a "creamy salad mustard" and added the golden-hued spice for a more attraction presentation.

"Zzzz" is an onomatopoeic representation of the act of snoring. It sounds like snoring, or at least since 1918. Snoring and sleep became almost interchangeable in comics' language, and this brought on a new agreed-upon standard. In 1918, the American Dialect Society formalized it, and soon after, popular idioms followed, like "catching some z's", for instance.

Round 2 ...

Armadillo shells are bulletproof. In fact, one Texas man was hospitalized when a bullet he shot at an armadillo ricocheted off the animal and hit him in the jaw.

Bridge was built for squirrels (The Nutty Narrows Bridge was built in 1963 by a local builder, the late Amos Peters, to give squirrels a way to cross the busy thoroughfare without getting flattened by passing cars. It is regarded as the first of its kind)

The Elephant

  1. The African elephant is not just the largest living land animal but it has an enormous brain size to match. Their brains can weigh up to a whopping 5.4kg and are, without doubt, the largest brain of all animals living on land.
  2. Need help remembering which is an African elephant and which is an Asian elephant? Check out their ears! African elephant ears are, rather helpfully, the shape of Africa.
  3. Have you ever seen an elephant swim? It’s pretty special! But not only can they swim, did you know they’ve also been spotted using their trunks as a snorkel when crossing rivers?! Now that’s handy…
  4. Elephant family groups are very close. While they can’t exactly hug each other, elephants do wrap their trunks around younger relatives to reassure them and to greet each other they twine their trunks together.
  5. Elephants are super smart! They can both learn and feel emotions. If a member of their family group is injured, the rest of the group may come and help it. They also know when a family member is no longer in the herd and it’s a truly heart-breaking sight to see an elephant grieve over the bones of lost family and friends.
  6. Female elephants have the longest pregnancy of any mammal. It’s a lengthy 22 months before baby elephants are ready to be born!
  7. Baby elephants stay with mum for up to 10 years. They even learn to eat by putting their trunks inside their mothers’ mouths to take food.
  8. Did you know elephants can get sunburned? Ouch! These giants bathe in mud to help protect their skin from the sun.
  9. You definitely don’t want to get in the way of a charging elephant. It’s said they can reach speeds of 40km/h!
  10. Elephants make sounds that we can’t even hear. Some of their calls are so low, they are below the range of human hearing. And these amazing animals can recognise over 100 different friends from their calls alone.
