These spring pictures sent in by an Edmonton reader who wrote, “Hi Don, These photos are to be shared with all to remind us spring will happen here too one day!”

The Amazing Human Body

The Amazing Human Body1
It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

One human hair can support 6.6 pounds.

The average man's penis is two times the length of his thumb.

Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

A woman's heart beats faster than a man's.

There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

Women blink twice as often as men.

The average person's skin weighs twice as much as the brain.

Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.

Women will be finished reading this by now.

Men are still busy checking their thumbs.

Boeing 747-8 Performs Ultimate Rejected Take-Off

Boeing 747-8
Imagine you're driving at the maximum speed allowed on a major highway and you have to suddenly stop the car.

It's basically what Boeing test pilot Captain Kirk Vining had to do recently with the new 747-8 Freighter during one of the most dramatic airplane certification tests. However, instead of a 4,000-pound (1815 kilograms) car, the 747-8 weighed in at close to one million pounds.

Details and video on Boeing’s website.
