Here are some strange facts from weird laws to interesting body facts. Kidzworld has it all.

There are a lot of interesting tidbits floating around out there. Useless facts like, a duck's quack doesn't echo, get put into emails and sent to people all the time. Take a look at these facts that might not be so useless. Tell us which ones you think are made up... or maybe they're all true?

1. This is a law in the State of Kansas: When two trains approach each other at a crossing, they should both stop, and neither of them can go until the other one has gone.


2. Speaking of laws, can you believe a law was made on July 16, 1969 saying that it's illegal for US citizens to have any contact with extraterrestrials or their vehicles?


3. If you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib.


4.More than 50 percent of the people in the world have never made or received a phone call.


5. How fishy is this? Most lipsticks are made with fish scales.


6. There's a caterpillar that fires balls of poop from its butt like a firing squad. These fast missiles fly at six feet a second! How you ask? The caterpillar builds up blood pressure around the bum-hole and then squeezes out the poop bombs.


7. On the subject of poop, the official FDA guidelines say that whole pepper can be sold with up to one percent of the volume including rodent dung.


8. If that last fact didn't gross you out, this might. In the middle ages, everyone (and I mean everyone) had fleas. It was even considered good luck to capture and crack the first flea on a baby. (Cracking means putting a flea between your fingernails and squishing until it pops.)


10. If you're not grossed out yet, this might do the trick. When cows are milked, there's sometimes a great deal of blood that comes out with the milk. This tainted milk can't be sold so companies that make chocolate milk use it since cocoa hides the blood.


10. A man in Arizona couldn't get over the death of his wife so he put her in an enclosed glass coffee table. She's in his living room now.

'Does Donald Trump suck?' - Yes, he does. Although, we can criticise anything about anyone. It's tough choosing between Clinton and Trump.  Good luck, America.

Here's a quick rundown of the AU- Take Batman, then put it in Undertale, and make the underground Gotham.  But with a twist.  Papyrus- Batman, fights against pun usage in the city (XD)  Sans- Joker, the most famous for using puns, Papyrus' most famous enemy Undyne- Gordon, helps Batman fight against punners and leads the city cops Frisk- Robin, is neutral on puns but still helps Papyrus  Toriel- Harley Quinn, second most famous for using puns, and often tags along with Sans  Asgore- Bane, he doesn't use puns as much, but he does sell joke and pun books. Flowey- Riddler, he leaves riddles everywhere to throw people off or lead them into traps Alphys- Oracle, isn't related to Undyne here, and helps Frisk and Papyrus behind the scenes. Mettaton- Catwoman, sometimes helps sometimes doesn't. Neutral ground. Napstablook- mayor of the city, doesn't do much, lets everyone else take care of it since its their jobs.  Monsterkid- Killer Croc, he decided to dress up as a crocodile since he kinda looked like one, and picked up off of Sans and now tells puns.

Would you honestly expect the criminal's mother to take responsibility and pay for a lock? First, a mother taking responsibility for her child is not the same as a government taking responsibility for its' citizens.  Secondly, we border Mexico. They're our neighbors. It would be more like having no fence between you and your neighbor's house, and your neighbor's kids constantly trespassing and destroying your garden. If it's the case that you've suffered the damages, then your neighbor should rightfully pay for a fence to be built.  It's the same with the U.S.-Mexico border, but on a much grander scale. A tenth of the Mexican population has come into this country illegally, and it's costing us hundreds of billions every year. So, why is it wrong for Mexico to pay for a 20 billion dollar wall?
