I love being caught by surprise and learning about new things, don’t you?

I really hope so, or else I have a feeling you probably wouldn’t be here with us right now.

And what we’re about to see is going to make you say, “huh…I had no idea!” And that’s always a good thing. No, that’s actually a GREAT thing. Because if we don’t use our brains enough, they tend to get lazy and wither way, just like any other muscle in our body.

So that’s why it’s important to always learn new things and challenge that noggin of yours! Trust me on this one, ladies and gents!

Enjoy these pics and the accompanying descriptions! We think you will!
