Random facts

  I have a book called "Isaac Asimov's book of facts", and I was looking through it and found some of the weirdest stuff. For example, did you know that:
-Emperor Caligula appointed his favorite horse as a counsel of Rome.
-For distances of up to 150 feet, an alligator can outrace a man.
-In Pacific Grove California, City Ordinance No. 352 makes it a misdemeanor to threaten or kill a butterfly.
-From the federal, state, and local levels of government, Americans receive 2 million regulations and 150,000 laws every year.
-Both alligators and old people can only hear notes with up up 4,000 vibrations a second.
  Those were just five of my favorites by the book have 3,000. There is some really coolant interesting stuff in there.
