The average air-speed velocity of an unlade swallow, whether African or European, is 23mph. Knowing this fact could save your life.

Can they carry coconuts?
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.
Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

That figures! Thats about a ninth of the dive-speed of the Peregrine Falcon.
See things are already starting to stitch together.

There are more microbes on a person's body than there are humans on Earth.

I find that to be very interesting though a bit scary.
But talk about inter-connectedness or outer-connectedness.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience

I would find it a lot scarier if it were the other way around.

lol I did not expect that. Can you edify me as to the reason why? Is it because many of those microbes are healthy and positive ones?

An enquiring mind would really like to know.

Lol no when you grow up knowing of the trillions of beings that crowd your skin and innards, and given how humans tend to lose all integrity in crowds, the idea that there would be even more humans than these crawling micro creatures is just terrifying.
