  1. Very interesting information, Lejla, some of which was new to me. I particularly like: “More energy from the Sun falls on Earth in an hour than the whole planet spends in a year.” It gives hope that somehow we will find a way to save ourselves from fossil fuel hell.
    But this one I can’t grasp: “If two pieces of the same metal are touched in the universe, they will be permanently united and remain like that forever.” It doesn’t seem to work here, and this is part of the universe, no? 🙂
