DJ Evenstar's Fun Facts for 2/5/16

On the 2/5/16 broadcast of The Brickyard, host DJ Evenstar shared the following fun facts: 

  1. A polygon with 30 sides is a triacontagon.
  2. To see anything related to the number 30 in your dreams usually means that someone or something lacks truth. Someone is lying to you or something is not be what it seems.
  3. A college student named Cam Brantley-Rios dedicated 30 days of his life to eating only bug based meals and sharing it on his blog. Also yes… he ate bugs all thirty days and beat the challenge.
  4. The word ‘camel’ comes from an Arabic word: ǧml. This word is literally translated to mean beauty. Don’t ever try and say that camels are ugly!
  5. In 1855, the US Congress allowed the War Department to purchase camels using a $30,000 budget. They were used for several years, until the soldiers became tired of their bad tempers and smell.
  6. Ever wondered why a dog can move its ears so freely? There are at least 18 muscles in a dog’s ear which all work separately, making movement in this area very easy.
  7. Dogs can hear higher pitches than adults when it comes to sound. The hearing of humans is most effective at 2000Hz (Hertz), while dogs can hear very clearly at 8000Hz. Paul McCartney apparently recorded a very high whistle sound in the song ‘A Day in the Life‘, so that his pet dog would be able to hear it.
  8. In the 17th century, heavy rain in Germany would cause stray cats and dogs to be washed up in the streets or drowned. Thus, the term ‘it’s raining cats and dogs’ was formed.


You can hear more fun facts like these, along with plenty of pop/rock tunes, by tuning into The Brickyard Friday nights from 6 pm-8 pm on WKUF-LP Flint, 94.3 FM.
