Trivia number 84

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

Reindeer eyes change color between summer and winter to adapt to the widely varying levels of light in the high north.  The reflection from reindeer eyes is yellow-green in summer. The blue color during the darkest months of the year helps scatter more incoming light and results in better vision.  The last one for today is:  In America, someone attempts suicide once every minute, and someone completes a suicide once every 17 minutes. Throughout the world, approximately 2,000 people kill themselves each day.

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

 Good morning, James. I am not too sure how I will use the information about reindeer either. I will drop it in my bucket of useful information and pull it out when needed.

Thank you James for the trivia. I never knew this about reindeer. I will be attending a trivia session at the Missouri Association of Realtors meetings in Jefferson City in a couple of weeks and who knows, this may be important at that moment!

I was all ready to make an amusing statement about suicide, but have refrained, even though it is difficult, because suicide is not a laughing matter. It's not funny to the people left behind. It's not funny to the person attempting it. It's sad that a person could be so depressed and hopeless that the only way out is to gargle with lye. Oops. Sorry.

James, the facts on suicide make me sad. Perhaps 2014 can be a year in which I remember to daily include prayers concerning this alarming matter and for the people affected.

James, that is fascinating about the reindeer eyes. It makes perfect sense, actually. Nature is amazing.
