So I've always liked learning about names given to groups of animals. For example, everyone knows that a group of fish is called a "school" - but here are some other ones that you might not have heard of (and will probably have little use for in the future unless you want to look really smart at a petting zoo or something):

A group of barracudas = a "battery"

A group of owls = a "parliament"

A group of flamingoes = a "flamboyancy"

A group of goldfish = a "troubling"

A group of peacocks = an "ostentation"

There are loads more random names for groups of animals out there, so if you know of any, please add them to this list!

Saw on dr. Oz a woman who developed a nail polish technique using drops of polish floated on water and swirled together. Check last 2 weeks episodes. I forget when it was but was cool.

I have too many useless facts, but probably one of the most ridiculous ones I have are the weird laws states have. One of the weirdest is that you can't peel an orange while bathing.. In California.

Many fine dining restaurants serve capellini (pasta).  Always sounded fancy to me.  Turns out I've been making it for many, many years. Capellini actually means Angel Hair...as in angel hair pasta.  Who knew?

Orange cats develop black spots on their lips and noses in middle age. After a few years the spots grow together and look like black lips on the cat.
