Simply removing the ice off the surface of Antarctica would reveal an archipelago with most of the western half of Antarctica under water. But factoring sea level rise from the ice melt and isostatic rebound (from the removal of the ice sheets), East Antarctica would form a continent while West Antarctica would remain an archipelago.

The "chlorine" smell you smell around pools is not actually chlorine gas but chloramines (chlorine/nitrate derivatives) produced by nitrogen containing contaminants reacting with the chlorine in the pool. These contaminants are often from swimmer wastes such as sweat, body oils and urine. This is why many pools ask you to have a shower before you swim. The chloramines can still act as disinfectants but they're 40 times less powerful than chlorine or hypochlorites.

Still want to go swimming in your local pool?

Unless you are a saiyan, whatever doesn't kill you most certainly will not make you stronger. In fact you will become weak, like Krillin. Or Raditz. :lol:

The use of the rabbit's foot as an amulet to bring good luck probably originated from the Celtic people since 600 BC. This belief is not limited to Europeans as some groups of people from China, Africa and the Americas had similar superstitions.

Rabbits are popular prey and spent most of their day hidden in vegetation or in underground burrows.

Unlike foxes, rabbtis almost never carry rabies and they are not known to transmit it to humans.

Foxes are driving other species to extinction in Australia and as such there are fox eradication efforts underway, especially in Tasmania where they were only recently introduced.

A lot of australian think rabbits are an invasive spieces that damages the Australian environment and costs their primary production millions of dollars each year. They were deliberately introduced to Australia by the early English settlers for hunting,

This is an episode of Australian kids TV show "Round The Twist". That particular episode is about a fox and is based on a story by Australian author Paul Jennings called "Grandad's Gifts" in the book "Unbearable!".

Actually serence, that was a hare. And it was a tortoise he lost to, not a turtle.
It was Aesop's fable about the tortoise and the hare.

A male rabbit is a buck and a female rabbit is a doe. Does usually do all the digging as they like to make burrows in which to have/raise their kittens. Bucks will occasionally dig a shallow "scrape" but they won't do much more than that.

From the look on that foxes face, it won't be a cute picture for much longer. I suggest you look away now.

In The Animals of Farthing Wood (the TV show which was adapted from the book) Fox takes an oath not to swallow or otherwise consume anyone.

this and this strangely resemble the background of my characters , even though I didn't know about any of this before today 0.o
when you look at the Bucks bunny cartoon from a tiny different point of view , the bad guy isn't the hunter , but Bugs himself , and he's not the only rabbit/hare who's been depicted as the "hidden bad guy"
