1. The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as a substitute for blood plasma.

2. The bullfrog is the only animal that never sleeps. It only rests.

3. Shakespeare invented the words "assassination"and"bump".

4. Putting sugar on a wound or cut will greatly reduce pain and speed up the healing process.

5. The brain itself cannot feel pain. While the brain might be the pain center when you cut your finger or burn yourself, the brain itself does not have pain receptors and cannot feel pain. That doesn't mean your head can't hurt. The brain is surrounded by loads of tissues, nerves and blood vessels that are plenty receptive to pain and can give you a pounding headache.
