Lake Superior

Why it’s called Lake Superior

Pretty amazing….. Did you realize
how big this lake is?
cid:1.2871501312@web88606.mail.bf1.yahoo.com

LAKE SUPERIOR FACTS
·   Lake Superior contains ten percent of all the fresh
water on the planet Earth.

·  It covers 82,000 square kilometers or 31,700 square miles.

·  The average depth is 147 meters or 483 feet.

·  There have been about 350 shipwrecks recorded in Lake Superior

·  Lake Superior is, by surface area, the largest lake in the world.

· A Jesuit priest in 1668 named it Lac Tracy , but that name
was never officially adopted.


·  It contains as much water as all the other Great Lakes
combined, plus three extra Lake Erie ‘s!!

·  There is a small outflow from the lake at St. Mary’s River
(Sault Ste Marie) into Lake Huron , but it takes almost
two centuries for the water to be completely replaced.

·  There is enough water in Lake Superior to cover all of North and
South America with water one foot deep.

·  Lake Superior was formed during the last glacial retreat, making it one
of the earth’s youngest major features at only about 10,000 years old.

·  The deepest point in the lake is 405 meters or 1,333 feet.

·  There are 78 different species of fish that call the big lake home .

·  The maximum wave ever recorded on Lake Superior was 9.45 meters
or 31 feet high.

·  If you stretched the shoreline of Lake Superior out to a straight
line, it would be long enough to reach from Duluth to the Bahamas .

·  Over 300 streams and rivers empty into Lake Superior with the
largest source being the Nipigon River

·  The average underwater visibility of Lake Superior is about 8 meters
or 27 feet, making it the cleanest and clearest of the Great Lakes .
Underwater visibility in some spots reaches 30 meters.

·  In the summer, the sun sets more than 35 minutes later on the
western shore of Lake Superior
 than at its southeastern edge.

·  Some of the world’s oldest rocks, formed about 2.7 billion
years ago, can be found on the Ontario shore of Lake Superior .

·  It very rarely freezes over completely, and then usually just for a few
hours.  Complete freezing occurred in 1962, 1979, 2003 and 2009.

drunken stranger is asking for a push

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on the door.

The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

“Not a chance,” says the husband, “it is 3:00 in the morning!”

He slams the door and returns to bed.

“Who was that?” asked his wife.

“Just some drunk guy asking for a push,” he answers.

“Did you help him?” she asks.

“No, I did not, it’s 3am in the morning and it’s bloody pouring rain out there!”

“Well, you have a short memory,” says his wife. “Can’t you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself! God loves drunk people too you know.”

The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out into the pouring rain.

He calls out into the dark, “Hello, are you still there?”

“Yes,” comes back the answer.

“Do you still need a push?” calls out the husband.

“Yes, please!” comes the reply from the dark.

“Where are you?” asks the husband.

“Over here on the swing,” replied the drunk..

Farmer Fleming

I don’t know about the good luck/bad luck part of this at the end, but the story is neat

His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.

There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.

‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’

‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.

‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.
‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.

‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.

Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.

What saved his life this time? Penicillin.

The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son’s name?

Sir Winston Churchill.

Someone once said: What goes around comes around.

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody’s watching.

Sing like nobody’s listening.

Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.

AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH:

I hope it works…

May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

And may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead.

Now…..Make A wish!! I hope you made your wish!

Russian Dash Cams

This stuff is mesmerizing!
 I had to back several of these up and watch them againBut how’d they train that horse to cross at the crosswalk?
And abandoning your crashed car with your personal items, so you can later report it stolen.
 
    Doesn’t Russia have any driving regulations?

Buy a car in Russia – Get a free dash cam (they all seem to have them). You’re going to love this one.
