    I'll start:
    If you took the whole solar system and shrunk it down so that the Sun was at the top of your head and the orbit of Pluto was at the tip of your feet, Uranus would be just where you’d expect it to be.

    GO!

    A,"Sunset" is a mirage.When we see the bottom tip of the Sun on the Horizon in reality the Sun is already fully below the earth's surface :eek:

    Although we think the Earth has a lot of water this is only on the surface when spread out.This is the Reality,

    The first lever action repeating rifle was not the Winchester, but in fact the Henry.

    A 44 caliber 16 shot repeating rifle first manufactured in 1860.

    Used in limited numbers by union troops in the civil war (still an era of one shot muzzle loading muskets), it was referred to by one confederate general as "that damn rifle that you load on Sunday and shoot all week".

    Earth is also a lot smoother than that model.
    If it were the size of a billiard ball, it would be smoother than the billiard ball.
