Interesting Facts About Autumn

Autumn, also known as Fall is my favourite season. This year, it officially arrives on Saturday, September 22, 2018. In it's honour, here are some fun and interesting facts that you may not know:

> Fall arrives at 9:54 pm tomorrow, and daylight lasts about 8 minutes longer than nighttime. The Fall Equinox occurs when the sun crosses the celestial equator. The word equinox comes from the Latin words "aequus," which means "equal," and "nox," which means night. This has led to the perception that everyone worldwide sees the same amount of daylight and nighttime, but it's just not true.

> No matter where you are in the world, the sun will rise due east and set due west during the Fall Equinox (the same thing happens during the Spring Equinox).

> When days become shorter, animals in high altitudes experience biological changes. One of the weirdest examples is found in the male Siberian hamster, whose testicles swell almost 17 times their normal size, according to Mother Nature Network.

> You may gain weight. When the days shorten and cool, we are not outside as much in the sunshine (the primary source of Vitamin D for most people) and that reduces fat breakdown and triggers fat storage.

> You can stand an egg on one end during the Fall Equinox, but it has nothing to do with the changing of the season. "The Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait compares the egg-standing myth to "an extremely contagious virus." Plait, an American astronomer, skeptic, writer and popular science blogger, says the reason eggs can be balanced on one end most likely has to do with tiny bumps on the end of the shell that "act like little legs holding the egg up."

> Fall babies are better students. Human born in autumn (September through December) are more likely to excel in school than those born at other times of the year, according to a UK Department of Education report.

> Fall babies are more likely to live longer. born between September and November are more likely to live to be 100 than those born at other times of year, according to a University of Chicago study of 1,500 centenarians.

> The gorgeous pigments in Fall foliage are actually there all year, just under the surface. Sunlight helps fuel plant cells containing a chemical called chlorophyll, which gives leaves its vivid green color while working to turn light into energy. When sunlight diminishes in fall, chlorophyll breaks down, letting the plant’s hidden red, yellow, and orange hues shine.

> Monarch butterflies, travel at speeds of between 12 and 25 miles per hour. They are the only insect that migrates up to 2,500 miles for nicer weather.

> No film with “Autumn” in its title has ever won an Oscar. The Virgin Spring (1960), Summer of ’42 (1971), and The Lion in Winter (196 provide the other seasons one statue apiece.

> Testosterone levels in both men and women spike higher in Autumn. As a result, sex drive increases and men find women even more attractive than during summer months.

> Do humans have a “mating season” like other animals? One thing is for sure: September is the most popular birth month of the year.

Siberian hamster, whose testicles swell almost 17 times their normal size
Sooo, you're telling me some scientific types went to Siberia during all 4 seasons, including the figgin freezing winter, to measure the sacks of hamsters. And. as scientific types like to be through, they must have repeated this journey into the gonads of hamsters numerous times. Do I understand this correctly?

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Apparently yes and they had to use itty bitty instruments to do the measurements.
