    would it make a difference if they were in teams? like 5 gorillas v. 5 grizzly bears. maybe the outcome would be different in a group dynamic. some animals are better at hunting in groups. some excel at 1 on 1.

    discuss.

    One tired gorilla could easily take out two Grizzlies. If he has his nap possibly more.

    You swallow eight spiders in your sleep every year.

    Oh and nowhere in the constitution does it say you must pay federal income tax.

    Myth: You unknowingly swallow an average of four live spiders in your sleep each year.

    Fact: This very widespread urban legend has no basis in fact. It exists in various forms; another common version is that you swallow an average of 20 in your lifetime. (At 4 per year, that would make a very short lifetime of 5 years...) A correspondent in Pennsylvania had heard a version that involved swallowing a pound of spiders (while sleeping) in one's lifetime. (That would be over 20,000 average spiders, for a lifetime of 5,000 years at the 4 per year rate).

    For a sleeping person to swallow even one live spider would involve so many highly unlikely circumstances that for practical purposes we can rule out the possibility. No such case is on formal record anywhere in scientific or medical literature. Since this page first appeared, I have heard from one person who found a small harmless spider hiding in her ear (which is possible), another who claimed to have had one in her nose (but had no evidence that it wasn't already in her hanky), and one who claimed that when she was a young child a spider leg was found by her lips. But not one person has claimed that a spider entered his or her mouth.



    Myth: Spiders drink moisture from the mouths or lips of sleeping humans.

    Fact: I have heard this legend verbally but it does not seem to be recorded in print anywhere. A variant that one person claimed to have heard on TV is that "a spider will drink from your eye (while you sleep) 3 times in your life." It is probably just a variation on the "swallowing live spiders in your sleep" legend; like that one, it has no basis in fact.

    Well, not quite.

    The human brain has about 10 billion nerve cells or neurons.

    Number of stars in the visible universe = 30 billion trillion (3x10)
