Here we are nearing the end of 2010. Once again, it is time to recap some of the best things shared here on CBMAM. Let's start with some things we learned.
**Eclipse shadows travel at 1,100 miles per hour at the equator and up to 5,000 miles per hour near the poles.
**A praying mantis has one single ear. It is located in the middle of its thorax on the underside. It is a deep slit inside the thorax.
The mantis is deaf to most non-ultrasonic sounds.
**Did you know that the mask Michael Myers wore in the original “Halloween” movie is actually a Captain Kirk (William Shatner/Star Trek) mask painted white?
**"Scooby Doo, Where Are You!" was originally thought up as "Mysteries Five," a show featuring five teens and their dog named Too Much who were in a band. When "The Mysteries Five" (which included the dog) were not performing they would solve mysteries of the paranormal kind. Needless to say after a few name changes and tweeks, "Scooby Doo, Where Are You!" finally got its debut on Saturday, September 13, 1969.
