answer to T or C - 10/26

TRUTH !
Only a bear’s eyes, nose and breath are visible to infrared. Why ?

A Polar Bear’s exterior body temperature is the same as the snow around it.

Polar bears are superbly insulated by up to 10 cm (3.9 in) of blubber, their hide and their fur; they overheat at temperatures above 10 °C (50 °F), and are nearly invisible under infrared photography.

I knew T or C was probably true because it is so opposite of what one would think, but then I figured it was a trick question!

I got the ones in red:

1. – b
2. Almond
3. – c

4. Nerves and skeletal muscles
5. Jehovah’s Witnesses
6. Gas pressure
7. – a (One of my mom's and my favorites.).
8. Plato


Speaking of marzipan, did you ever see the movie, "My Stepmother is an Alien?" I haven't yet, but there is a scene where the stepmom eats cigarette butts out of the ash tray, thinking it is an appetizer tray. An old friend of ours made the cigarette butts for the movie from marzipan.
