    What is the hottest place on Earth?

    Guess again if you guessed Death Valley in California. True enough on many days. But El Azizia in Libya recorded a temperature of 136 degrees Fahrenheit on Sept. 13, 1922! The hottest ever measured! In Death Valley, it got up to 134 Fahrenheit on July 10, 1913! Come and share Amazing Facts! Desert11

    Come and share Amazing Facts! Empty Amazon river

    Post by Leone123 on Tue May 19, 2009 11:22 pm

    river in northern South America, largely in Brazil, ranked as the largest in the world in terms of watershed area, number of tributaries, and volume of water discharged. Measuring 6,400 km (4,000 mi) from source to mouth, it is second in length only to the Nile among the rivers of the world. With its hundreds of tributaries, the Amazon drains a territory of more than 7 million sq km (2.7 million sq mi), roughly half of which is in Brazil; the rest is in Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Venezuela. It is estimated that the Amazon discharges between 34 million and 121 million liters (9 million and 32 million gallons) of water per second and deposits a daily average of 3 million tons of sediment near its mouth. The annual outflow from the river accounts for one-fifth of all the fresh water that drains into the oceans of the world. The outpouring of water and sediment is so vast that the salt content and color of the Atlantic Ocean are altered for a distance of about 320 km (about 200 mi) from the mouth of the river. study study study so tired of typing all of that Sleep Sleep Sleep
