Fly Swatters…

Posted on: October 11, 2010

Sitting around a table with family at Thanksgiving can lead to many different topics of conversation!
 
I discovered that one cannot see the Great Wall of China from space! I googled it and it’s true… I was so excited about that fact when I walked on the Wall a couple years back, now my bubble has been burst! haha
 
I also found out why fly swatters have holes… If you try hitting a fly with a rolled-up newspaper, or something without tiny holes, air doesn’t pass through it and the fly can feel the air current change  — securely buzzing out of the way! The holes reduce air resistance so you can swing faster, and it doesn’t press a current towards the fly, so he can’t feel it coming… WHAP!
 
Cool hey!?
