Fun Trivia Questions And Answers


Question
Which is stronger, concrete or bone?

Answer
Bone

Useless Fact
Human bones can actually resist 40 times more stress than concrete. Don’t believe it is true? Then picture a piece of concrete the size of a bone and imagine how easily it would break.

Question
What bird lays its egg in another bird’s nest?

Answer
Cuckoo, Cowbird, Whydah and Black-headed Duck

Useless Fact
These birds, called brood parasites, lay their eggs in another bird’s nest and let the other bird parents feed and raise their chicks. The “egg abandoner” is then free to mate again and lay more eggs in another nest. The cuckoo is the best known brood parasite and an expert in the art of cruel deception. Its strategy involves stealth, surprise and speed. The mother removes one egg laid by the host mother, lays her own and flies off with the host egg in her bill. The whole process takes barely ten seconds. Cuckoos parasitize the nests of a large variety of bird species and carefully mimic the colour and pattern of their own eggs to match that of their hosts. Each female cuckoo specializes on one particular host species. How the cuckoo manages to lay eggs to imitate each host’s eggs so accurately is one of nature’s main mysteries.
