    The holiday encourages people to do something new that enriches their own lives or the lives of people in their community.

    March Fourth

    The name of this unofficial holiday plays on the words, march fourth, which when spoken out loud sounds like march forth - an expression used to convey action and moving forward.

    How to Celebrate?

    March forth and do something.

    Superman didn't always fly. The original comic book Superman could leap tall buildings in a single bound. But then he had to come right back down to Earth—because he didn't fly. It wasn't until the 1940s, when animators for a new animated series decided it would be too difficult to routinely draw him bending his knees, that it was decided that Superman could take off into the air. Readers got to see smooth animation, and a superhero gained a new power.


    Bees sometimes sting other bees. Bees are notorious for their stings, but humans aren't the only ones who experience this pain in the neck (or the arm, or the leg…). In protecting their hives from outsiders, some "guard bees" will stay by the entrance and sniff the bees that come in, says Marianne Peso from the biology department of Macquarie University. If there's a rogue bee from another hive trying to steal some nectar, the guard bee will bite and even sting the intruder.


    Water makes different pouring sounds depending on its temperature. If you listen very closely, hot water and cold water sound slightly different when being poured. The heat changes the thickness, or viscosity, of the water, which changes the pitch of the sound it makes when it's poured. What we feel as heat comes from the molecules of the water moving faster. Cold water is thicker and therefore makes a slightly higher-pitched sound.

     All of the above came from here.

    Daylight Saving Time will begin at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 8

    Don't forget to change your clock before going to sleep tonight! But what does it mean and why do we do it?

    The terms “spring forward” and “fall back” are used to describe a practice of changing standard time with the intention of “saving” (as in, making better use of) natural light. During daylight savings time (DST), clocks are turned ahead one hour, so that the sun rises later in the morning and sets later in the evening. The change is reversed in autumn.

    Originally enacted in the United States as a wartime conservation effort, observance of DST became federal law in 1918. (To dispel a common myth: It was not enacted for farmers—in fact, most farmers fought for its repeal.) While it was quickly repealed after the war ended, DST was observed nationally again during World War II. By 1966, some 100 million Americans were practicing some type of DST through their own local laws. In 1966, Congress acted to end the confusion and establish one consistent nationwide pattern. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 stated that DST would begin on the last Sunday of April and end on the last Sunday of October. (Any area that wanted to be exempt from DST could do so by passing a local ordinance. Hawaii and most of Arizona, for example, are exempt from DST.) By 2005, the Energy Policy Act established that DST begins each year on the second Sunday in March at 2:00am and that the changeover back to standard time (ST) occurs on the first Sunday in November at 2:00am.

    Fun Facts about Bubblegum

    Bubble gum was invented in 1928 by a man named Walter Diemer. He worked at a chewing gum factory (as an accountant!) and was experimenting with all kinds of gum recipes. One day, Walter came up with a formula that wasn’t as sticky as regular gum. It was also super stretchy. This meant you could blow bubbles with it. Unfortunately for Walter, he lost the recipe and had to start experimenting all over again. But after four long months, he figured out the recipe once more. And bubble gum was here to stay!

    Pink is the most popular color for bubble gum

    The fact is that when Walter Diemer was coming up with a new type of gum, pink food colouring was the only colour available. So pink it was! Now pink bubble gum is the most common colour around.

    If you want to blow the ultimate bubble, take it slow. This allows the bubble gum to stretch and grow. Of course, it takes a lot of practice to become a bubble-blowing champ. An American man named Chad Fell holds the record for the largest bubble-gum bubble. He used three pieces of gum to blow a bubble that measured over 50 centimetres around. That’s twice the size of a basketball!

     Around 100,000 tons of bubble gum is chewed every year

    In fact, that’s about the weight of over 14,000 African elephants! One of the problems with so much gum being chewed is that it ends up in our landfills. But some smart-thinking inventors have created special waste containers for gum. They recycle the gum to make rubber toys or containers.

     There is an alley in California that is absolutely covered in gum

    It’s called Bubblegum Alley and people stop there to stick their chewed-up gum on its walls. The alleyway has been a landmark for gum-chewers for about 20 years. It now features millions of pre-chewed, colourful wads of gum. In the past, the alleyway has been completely cleaned of gum. But passersby can’t seem to stop themselves from visiting and sticking their gum to the wall. So Bubblegum Alley remains in all its gum glory!

    Many people in the world enjoy chewing gum for the refreshing taste, removal of breathe odour, and some even use it as a study aid for increased focus.

    What many people don't know is that when they chew gum, they are also stimulating salivation and subsequent swallowing. Unfortunately, this means that more air is being swallowed than usual, which leads to increased (and perhaps minty-fresh) flatulence. Ever noticed a correlation? You may well do after reading this.

    On top of that, chewing gum's taste is usually from mint, a natural herb that's known to aid the digestive process, which in turn leads to an increase in wind expulsion.

    Another factor comes into play when chewing sugar-free gum, because most of them contain sweeteners, like sorbitol or xylitol, which are also known to cause gas.

    Would you like to find out how the studio created our Bubblegum Troll doing this?

    Were they aware of this or did they just do Google searches and then applied it to our King Chewy? Let's tag @QueenMia and hopefully she can get us the answer as to how and why they applied this behavior to our troll.
