Top 10 deadliest animal on the Earth !

Are you afraid of animals ?
If your answer is yes, then you must read tis article carefully !! And if your answer is No, then you should read this article with much more interest, as this article will make you aware why some people are afraid of animals, how/which way they are harmful and about some facts.

I'm going to share the top 10 deadliest animal on the earth, I found this list and this amazing facts while surfing around, so be careful with these animal !! :D
The numbering indicates there rank, that is No.1 means it is the most deadliest animal and then the amount of deadliness decreases, here is the list,

  1. Humans : I needn't specify the reason !!
  2. Mosquito : Around 2 millions death are caused every year because of this tiny insect.
  3. Asian Cobra : It is also the most venomous snake.
  4. Australian Box Jellyfish : Also known as sea-wasp
  5. Great White Shark : Can smell blood from miles away.
  6. African Lion : Very quick on earth.
  7. Australian Crocodile : They can run @ 30-40 mph for small time to catch the prey.
  8. Elephant : Can crush anyone with its one feet.
  9. Polar Bear :Very cute & 8th deadliest
  10. Cape Buffalo : It has razor sharp horns & solid skull.
  11. Poison Dart Frog : Have neurotoxin in them to kill 10 humans at once.
  1. The list doesn't include extinct animals and doesn't consider the deaths caused by them.
  2. No. 0 indicates that humans are by default and aren't included in counting. :)
Some of the names are really surprising, like mosquito occupies the 1st place in deadliest animal list & Box jellyfish is on 3rd and White Shark on 4th (excluding Humans)!!
You would have rate Whilte Shark 1st, like other humans (including me), right ? But the deadliness is based on the number of deaths caused by that specific animal, as deadliness is derived from DEADliness and it is the fact of these animals !!

So, make sure there are no mosquitoes around (and for that keep your surrounding clean and green) and be healthy to have fune while you surf around.. :D

At what speed does Earth revolve around the Sun ?

Have you ever wondered at what speed does out Earth revolve around the sun ?
No, then I'm surprised !!  As I always used to wonder about the rotation speed of the Earth around the sun.
And if your answer is yes, then probably you might not be knowing the speed, right ?
Now, Let's calculate the speed of Earth's with which it rotates around the sun, which we call it as one complete revolution.
We know that Earth takes 1 year to revolve around the sun, that is, time,t= 8765.813 hours.
Also, we know that the average distance between Sun and the Earth is 149,597,890 km, that is we can take that value as radius of a cirlce on which Earth revolve, then, Circumference of the circle, that is,
Distance travelled by Earth in one year, S=2*pi*149,597,890 km (assuming the the path of Earth in which it revolves is circle)
 = 940329594.3 km (approximately)

Note: Here I've used the value of pi as 22/7 ( I know it is not accurate value, though we take in practice for calculation :)
Now we know that velocity or speed, v =  S/t
=> v = 940329594.3 km / 8765.813 hours = 107272 km/hr (approximately)
That is, the speed at Earth revolve around the Sun, that is Earth's revolution speed, is 66655.73 miles per hour (= 107272 km/hr).

Isn't it very fast ?? And indeed the fact is that is too fast !!
Keep surfing, we will be sharing more stuff like this.. Have fun :)

Earn While you Spend

Hi Guys its been a long time since I posted. I've been busy with some of my work and now I'm back and you can expect something more something new. Today I'm going to talk about a service which lets you earn while you spend. Its just in its initial phases and you can sign up for free.

It works on this Simple Idea :
What is even more intresting is that it allows a referral process, so if you refer someone you get some money into your account, and everytime your refferal spends some money , along with him you earn some money too :).
As I've said the service is currently in India, and its in its starting phase currently offering mobile top-ups. The Company plans to integrate more services like movie ticketing, travel ticketing, billing etc."

So what you are waiting for ?
Just logon to (Don't forget to Use "1203803" (without quotes) as your refferal) and create a free account. You need to transfer money into this account so as to use it and as you spend that money you earn more :).

So, what are you waiting for just go ahead, register and login to earn while you recharge :)
I will writing in the future about the service and explain more clearly about the process. But since the Service is in the initial phases just make sure that you go ahead and create an account .
When you do a recharge for your mobile, everytime you do a recharge you just spend money but you don't earn anything right, but here comes a service that lets you earn some little amount on every penny you spend.
