Leap of Faith

Friday, October 19, 2007

You may have heard that fleas can jump, relative to their length, further than any other animal. In fact this is not the case: the gentle seagull bests the flea with a mighty 200 meter leap. You'll probably never witness this, however, as they vastly prefer flying.

Thank goodness you're back. I was worried I'd never have your facts on my screen again.

Why the long hiatus?

I was doing research on Vampire Island, mingling with the natives, and had intended to report back with loads of information. Unfortunately, relations turned sour and, well, it's still just to painful to talk about.

I may revisit the subject in the future, but for now, I must put it behind me - if nothing else, out of respect for the dead.

Someone also found a beatle that lives in cockoo spit can jump higher than a flea.
