FUN FACT FRIDAY (ahem, um, Saturday. . . )

Happy Friday Everyone! (okay, this was written in my head on Friday, but I didn’t get a chance to sit at the compuper until now).

Did You Know?
During the restoration of the Statue of Liberty from 1984-1986, the inspectors found that there were several layers of very toxic paint on the inside of the statue. Traditional cleaning methods would have resulted in either damaging the copper of the statue, or being extremely dangerous and harmful for the cleaning crew, so, instead, they used 3500 gallons (over 13,000 litres) of LIQUID freaking NITROGEN! How amazing is that? Spray it on, paint flakes off, paint flakes vacuumed up, copper intact. So smart!

 

Mnemonic
This week’s mnemonic is to remember the cranial nerves, numbers, and features. This helped me SO MUCH in school. Cranial nerves came up in one way or another, worded differently and trickily, in many courses, but this mnemonic saved me every time! There are 12 paired cranial nerves that exit the skull under the brain’s surface that extend to various parts of the head, neck, chest and abdomen. The cranial nerves comprises three nerve types: motor nerves that send an impulse signal to a muscle; sensory nerves that transmit sensations from the body back to the brain; and autonomic nerves with both motor and sensory components that monitor and control visceral functions such as salivation, heart rate and intestinal movement. The cranial nerves are numbered one through 12 and are referred to by either their name or number.

CAUTION! Vulgar Language!

On This Day In History
1977 – Star Wars (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope 1981) is released in theaters, inspiring the Jediism religion as well as the Geek Pride Day holiday.

 

NERD ALERT!
Apparently THE QUEEN is a huge Dr. Who fan and believes that Christopher Eccleston is one of the best incarnations of the character. 

 

Thanks for stopping by!
