The only animal on earth that can not reproduce is a mule. That there is a new animal called a zorse (zebra and horse, saw it on TV). That an avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable.

Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously. Hey Sonny and GC, I found the funny and odd facts website you found!

I'm going to disprove one

Andrea, goldfish have longer memory spans than 3 seconds. I only know this because I graduated with a psyc. degree, and during my classes we went over a case where someone was able to train goldfish to follow a maze to find food. It took much longer than 3 seconds to train them, and they retained the knowledge. I think the "goldfish memory fact" is one of those urban myths that somehow got passed around (possibly through internet forums!).

Check out the "Behavior" section of this wiki article. The experiment was a bit different than the one I described, but the idea is the same.

What the heck does that mean? Is that a person's name?

To use one of GC's favorite terms, did you know you can "pants cannon" yourself to death? (Mythbusters)

Guilty as charged, psycho. Busted. I guess I should have noted where the curious bit's 'o information came from.

Unlike goldfish, I cannot cite any studies that disprove this .
