Bread used to be used before erasers. In 1770, a man was trying to erase something and accidentally grabbed a piece of rubber instead of bread, and saw that it worked much better. So, erasers serve to fix mistakes, but were only found to be able to do that by mistake. Alas, some mistakes cannot be fixed. Like you

Bonus fact!:
The Bowhead whale has one of the longest lifespans of any mammal. It can live for over 200 years! just think about that... a whale born in the 1820s could be alive today!

Bonus fact to do with the above bonus fact!:
The bowhead whales long lifespan was discovered due to a whale being found in 2007 with the head of a harpoon lodged in it. The harpoon was dated to the 1870's

If you're going through hell, keep going.

11 February, 2017:
Camels do not store water in their humps, as it is commonly believed. The humps are actually reservoirs of fatty tissue. Concentrating body fat in their humps minimizes heat-trapping insulation throughout the rest of their body, which may be an adaptation to living in hot climates.

12 February, 2018:
Hippos are able to protect themselves from the sun merely by sweating. Their skin secretes a natural fluid that functions as sunscreen, water repellent, and moisturizer simultaneously, and is red-colored. The secretion is sometimes referred to as "blood sweat", but is neither blood nor sweat. It also protects the skin from becoming waterlogged when a hippo is in the water. The detailed chemical composition of this secretion, which is unique to hippos, remains something of a mystery.
