Wednesday Wonderings

I though that each Wednesday I would share some interesting, obscure facts about our wonderful world. Here is my first installment:

*A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.
*A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.
*A crocodile cannot stick out its tongue.
*A dragonfly has a life span of 24 hours.
*A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.
*A "jiffy" is an actual unit of time for 1/100th of a second.
*A snail can sleep for three years.
*Al Capone's business card said he was a used furniture dealer.
*Almonds are a member of the peach family.
*An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

Have a wonderful day!
