    A group of geese on the ground is a gaggle - a group of geese in the air is a skein.

    curious... what are they in between flying and landing on the ground; which is ordinarily referred to as 'landing'?

    1. Every living person on earth could fit inside one cubic mile (127,000,000,000 cubic feet for 6,000,000 people)

    2. If you put a steel band around the earth, assuming earth to be perfectly smooth, and then cut the band and welded a 1 foot extension in this band going around the plane of the center, the band would be equidistant above the earth how far???

    About 2 inches.

    For any sphere of any size, this is true as delta c = delta 2 pi x r

    I just checked that out. Yes it is true. Or at least pretty close.

    The supraorbital gland is a type of lateral nasal gland found in some species of marine birds, particularly penguins, which removes sodium chloride from the bloodstream. The gland's function is similar to that of the kidneys, though it is much more efficient at removing salt, allowing Penguins to survive without access to fresh water.

    In Terminator 2 - Judgement Day, Arnold Schwarzenegger received a salary of $15 million; the 700 words he spoke translates to $21,429 per word. "Hasta la vista, baby" thus cost $85,716.
