When we went snorkeling with the manatees the water was really murky so they would just sneak up on you. I was just floating along and one would just bump into me. They are like 3,600 pound ninjas.

My life has been taken over by YA books! My public library allows us to  have 15 free holds — so these were the ones that came in ALL AT ONCE. I think I’ll just start reading from  top to bottom.

Time zones at the International Date Line
WonderWhy7439:


This is a particularly strange part of the International Date Line, far from a straight line. This is mainly due the country of Kiribati, an island country which spans three time zones (+12, +13 and +14).
There’s a 26 hour time difference between the Line Islands of Kiribati (+14) and the uninhabited US territories of Baker and Howland Island (-12).
You may also notice the International Date Lines passes through the Samoan Islands. Just 70km between the country of Samoa and US unincorporated territory of American Samoa. Samoa switched from -11 to +13 in 2011, while American Samoa stayed at -11.
I made this image for my latest YouTube video about time zones.
