Bull sharks can thrive in both salt and fresh water and can travel far up rivers. They have been known to travel up the Mississippi River as far as Alton, Illinois, about 700 miles (1100 km) from the ocean.

The molecules in the air we breathe and the water we drink have been on this earth before humans were here. They have passed through all types of animals and people, races, sexes, political affiliations, you name it. May have been in a Democrat last year.

Some people are concerned that they don't know what is being put in their medicine. Imagine that.

This does not qualify as a Fun Fact. More like a Pathetic Fact.

Lewis and Clark carried their gunpowder in lead canisters. The powder inside was measured to be enough to fire all the round ball that could be cast from the lead canister.

Didnt they have some high tech (for the period) air guns that they preferred?

I know they carried at least one air rifle. Not sure if they preferred them or not. I have been under the impression it was more of a show piece than a working piece. One of my friends actually built a working replica of one of them.
