The “Findings” page in Harper’s Magazine is always full of interesting information.  Thought I’d share some of my favorite tidbits from the most recent issue.

-Spiders have more legs than they need

-Taranchulas leave behind footprints of silk

-A new species of “devil” worms was found living 2.2 miles under the Earth’s surface

-Great whites are calmed by AC/DC’s “You Shook Me All Night Long”

-Babies learn language not through habituation, but in epiphanies

-Young Americans feel empowered by financial debt


Do you have a question you're dying to have answered about racing, training or food and cooking? Send it to me and I'll try to answer it on my blog.
