Interseting Science

I was reading something from the site Octaboona told us about and found some really funny quotes from kids, usually in the 5th or 6th grade. Enjoy. :]

"Clouds just keep circling the earth around and around. And around. There is not much else to do."

"Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it on a dog's tongue will kill the strongest man."

"For dog bite: put the dog away for several days. If he has not recovered, then kill it."

"Germinate: To become a naturalized German."

"I am not sure how clouds get formed. But the clouds know how to do it, and that is the important thing."  

"In some rocks you can find the fossil footprints of fishes."

 "Isotherms and isobars are even more important than their names sound."

"It is so hot in some places that the people there have to live in other places."

"Many dead animals in the past changed to fossils while others preferred to be oil."

"Most books now say our sun is a star. But it still knows how to change back into a sun in the daytime."

"Mushrooms always grow in damp places and so they look like umbrellas."

"Rhubarb: A kind of celery gone bloodshot."

"Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun. But I have never been able to make out the numbers."

"South America has cold summers and hot winters, but somehow they still manage."

"Syntax is all the money collected at the church from sinners."

"The earth makes a resolution every 24 hours."

"The inhabitants of Moscow are called Mosquitoes."

"The parts of speech are lungs and air."

"The pistol of a flower is its only protection against insects."

"The tides are a fight between the Earth and moon.  All water tends towards the moon, because there is no water in the moon, and nature abhors a vacuum. I forget where the sun joins in this fight."

"There is a tremendous weight pushing down on the center of the Earth because of so much population stomping around up here these days."

"Three kinds of blood vessels are arteries, vanes and caterpillars."

"Vacuums are nothings.  We only mention them to let them know we know they're there."

"Water vapor gets together in a cloud. When it is big enough to be called a drop, it does."

"We say the cause of perfume disappearing is evaporation. Evaporation gets blamed for a lot of things people forget to put the top on."

"When you smell an odorless gas, it is probably carbon monoxide."

"Wind is like the air, only pushier."
