      A kangaroo can get pregnant in both uteri, and 'suspend development' of one of them (embryonic diapause) until the other one has left the pouch.

      The word "helicopter" is derived from "helico" (helikos - spiral) and "pter" (pteron - wing).

      And the data collected went on to be used by the Allies after the war to further science and our understanding of the human body. I believe this data then went on to be used to make a extreme weather survival suits for mariners.

      Ah, complex analysis. I like it :lol:

      Another cool fact

      If D is a domain in \mathbb{C} and a holomorphic function f: D \rightarrow \mathbb{C} satisfies f'(z) = 0 \forall z \in D then f is constant.
