    So this is a game of amazing facts. Try to post things you think other people don't know about in the world. And let us know if you have!!!!

    Have you ever heard of or seen a moonbow?

    Did you know that neither a "rainbow" nor a "moonbow" are actually "bows?" They are full circles of refracted light, (like the halo ring we see around street lights and automobile headlights), the lower portion of which is simply below the horizon, and we cannot see it from our location. Flying high enough, people in airplanes often see this full circle, which is then called a "pilot's rainbow."

    Oh wow...good thread. :)

    No, I never knew there was such a thing as a moon-bow. LOL
    Interesting.

    @Willie T
    Well is God said " He set His bow in the cloud" for Noah...He obviously only needs a half of one. :p

    And I can't think of anything that I have done or seen that is special.
    I have been in the cockpit of a 747 plane. But I am sure others have.

    I have flown three time in a tiny 4 seater plane...which I found terrifying. I talked like a crazy person all the time...because our friend who was flying us from south Alberta to northern BC, kept falling asleep. :eek: That was the first time I experienced "someone turning green with fear or sickness" ...my 18 year old daughter's face was a beautiful shade of green.

    Banging your head against the wall for an hour burns 150 calories (no I haven't tried it. Lol)

    I was reading about the pilot's bow which is full circle. That would be so awesome to see.

    I am just randomly getting these off an amazing fact list. This one is hilarious.

    When the last official Blockbuster Video closed in November 2013, the final rental was the apocalyptic comedy This Is the End.

    I don't know how accurate this is. I was skimming through these

    116 Amazing Facts for People Who Like Amazing Facts

    But it says, For $45, the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing will sell you a 5-lb bag with $10,000 worth of shredded U.S. currency.

    Lol. Ill do it if I can tape them back together and use them.

    I like this one too:

    A baby can cost new parents 750 hours of sleep in the first year.


    I think I have lost way more then that though as a nursing mom
