Did you know.. ? by ev on 13 November 2008 7:25pm
 
This thread is for sentences beginning with "Did you know.." :)

For example:

Did you know that the brain of a modern human consumes about 20 Watts (400 kilocalories per day), which is one fifth of the energy consumption of a human body.

Did you know that I did not know that?

That's a cool fact. I know they've proven how intense mental concentration, activity, and thought can be physically exhausting - even just really taking in a museum, and keenly focusing on a lot of new stimuli with your eyes - so that makes sense.

Did you know,MMMmmm,that I didn't know that there are cool facts and also uncool facts? Apparently,you did. Phew,I must have burnt up at least 15 kilocalories just working that out! I had better rest,and give my brain a break.

Did you know that female giraffes give birth standing up? Well,they do..the young giraffe has a rather rude bump of a welcome into the world,dropping about 5 feet to the ground,but in a short time he is up on his legs and running with his mother. Fascinating.

....that 'dreamt' is the only English word that ends in 'mt'.

bb - I have to confess, I have never thought a fact was "uncool." Again, it's all relative, some are more interesting than others, depending on our own interests... Math has always bored me silly, but I couldn't say math facts are uncool!

But you knew that didn't you :)

I like that 'dreamt' one too, Johnny. It's poetry imbuing English...
