      Huge Starfish, Wrong Side Up

      Speaking about unexpected and full recovery: flip a huge starfish (with 9
      arms, no less) wrong side up, and see what happens... What's more, they do
      it without any brain involved.

      Flight of the Bumblebee

      According to old beliefs and some aerodynamics, the bumblebee should not
      be able to fly. Its wings aren't big enough... however, as you can see in
      animation below, its heavy body is one big muscle creating air turbulence,
      plus "the wings of a bumblebee bend to create vortices that provide lift
      on both the upward and downward strokes"


      Watch this while listening to the the amazing rendition of "Flight of the
      Bumblebee" by Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov -

Strange turtle : seems to be an Alligator Snapping Turtle, rather than a Mata Mata... These two turtles species look like cousins.

That bee thing is and always has been bunk spread by morons.


"The "science has proved that bees can't fly" urban myth originated in a 1934 book by entomologist Antoine Magnan, who discussed a mathematical equation by Andre Sainte-Lague, an engineer. The equation proved that the maximum lift for an aircraft's wings could not be achieved at equivalent speeds of a bee. I.e., an airplane the size of a bee, moving as slowly as a bee, could not fly. "
