~ Most books now say our sun is a star. But it still knows how to change
into a sun in the daytime.

~ Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun. But I have
never been able to make out the numbers.

~ Rain is saved up in cloud banks.

~ Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it on a dog's tongue will kill
the strongest man.

~ It is so hot in some parts of the world that the people there have to live
in other places.
