If your dog is often found perched atop your pillows, it’s likely because he enjoys the added fluff for a more luxurious nap. After all, who doesn’t love sinking into a pillow that’s soft and squishy? Your dog’s bed might be comfortable too, but over time it inevitably becomes worn down – making pillows a tempting alternative.
A fun fact about your heart is that it beats about 100,000 times in a day.
Mount Everest is the tallest mountain on Earth.
The world’s tallest mountain technically is not Mount Everest.
Mount Everest is the tallest mountain above sea level, but if we’re talking mountain base-to-summit height, then the tallest is the island of Hawaii that peaks as Mauna Kea.
Everest stands 29,035 feet above sea level. Mauna Kea only stands 13,796 feet above seal level, but the mountain extends about 19,700 feet below the Pacific Ocean. Over half of it is submerged.
That puts the total height of Mauna Kea at about 33,500 feet — nearly a mile taller than Everest.
