QI

I love the television program QI. Stephen Fry, arguably one of the smartest people in the country, challenges our knowledge of everyday facts and presents us with some rather unconventional new ones. I particularly enjoy the strange and unusual facts about the animal kingdom. Here are a few of my favourites.
There is no such thing as a fish!
Kangaroos can't fart!
The fingerprints of a koala are the same as those of a human!

All strange and unusual facts that are open for debate. However, there is one animal fact that I would dispute. There is no way that a cheetah is the fastest animal. I know that there might be some of you out there claiming that a peregrine falcon is the fastest. They are certainly faster than a cheetah, but not a patch on a weasel fired out of a cannon.

  2. I can't believe kangaroos can't fart. Surely they would explode.

  4. The cheetah is the fastest animal on land as the falcon and cannon shot weasel fly.

    1. In the act of running, most animals frequently leave the ground as they run, so does a cheetah count as the fastest animal on land?

    4. Don't overlook the physical abilities of the ordinary house cat. It's not all that fast, but its ability to break the windshield out of a bus is quite impressive. (You must throw it really hard)

    2. The cat would fit if you employed power tools first.
