Haven't personally verified, but a cool factoid if true!
 
Giraffes and humans possess the same number of neck bones。

The Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is the tallest land animal on earth, standing up to 6 metres- 20 feet in height. They achieve this remarkable stature predominantly through their exceptionally long legs and incredible neck which can itself measure 2 metres- 7 feet tall. What is even more astounding is that this remarkable neck contains only seven (7) vertebrae, identical to the number of human neck bones. Each vertebra can measure up to 11 inches 28cm in length and together with the weight of the skull can weigh up to 270Kg 600 pounds. This weight is support by amazingly strong neck muscles and an elongated Nuchal ligament.Humans similarly possess seven vertebrae, although we are able to pack them into a much smaller packet! We also have a Nuchal ligament; however this is not developed and/or utilized to the same degree as the Giraffe.

Awesome to hear of your involvement with +Make-A-Wish America kid Xander; letting him actually play in a match with y'all is the icing on the cake!!!

I truly enjoyed seeing the selfie with Xander and The Deuce.

WHAT IS HAMAS, AND WHY ARE THEY AT WAR WITH ISRAEL?: As the Israel-Palestine conflict escalates, it's hard to keep track of the factions fighting one another. Who is Hamas? Why do they control Gaza, but not the West Bank? And how is their war against Israel different than Fatah's? Video: http://dne.ws/WKBaHn

Ooh! Fun idea for all.
 
When China's first emperor ordered the creation of the Terra Cotta Warriors, their colorful paint was created by crushing minerals into powder and adding liquid.

Now, you can explore this color creation at home by creating your own chalk paint: http://bit.ly/1yH9pNk

+Phil Shen - Thought you especially would like this, but a beautiful shot for all to see!
 
I'm back from my trip to Seattle and the weather was perfect all week.  My wife +Betty Wilson and I took a ton of photos on this trip.  I wanted to photograph the Space Needle in as many was as possible and not the normal way.  I was looking for interesting angles to take photos from and this was one of those that happened upon us.  I was on a cruise of the harbor and it was early morning and we were fogged in.  BUMMER!! But, my patience paid off when the tower cut through the fog and appeared reminding us that she dominates the Seattle Sky Line.
