J.A.R.V.I.S. always tries to get Tony to make a gold Iron Man suit. For some reason Tony won’t but J.A.R.V.I.S thinks it would look awesome.
I can’t tell what my favorite part is, but it’s either
- scientists wasting budget and time to see if ants count their steps

Salmon have serious swimming skills—some travel thousands of miles to return to their original homes to breed. But even though they can jump as high as 12 feet in the air, they can’t manage to get over massive concrete dams that we have built to block their journeys back to their homes. Now one new idea could give them a boost. The plan involves whisking the fish through a long vacuum tube at speeds up to 22 miles per hour and then shooting them out the other end like a cannon.

The Incan stonework is famous for it’s large stones (some over 100 tons) that fit so precisely together that “not even a knife could be inserted between the joints.”
How the Incans were able to transport these massive building blocks and handled is something we don’t quite understand today. What we do know is that the cutting marks on some of the stone blocks are very similar to those found on the pyramidion of the unfinished obelisk in Egypt.
