i am quite sure that some of that things are not absolute trues!!, i see many "not absolute trues" on that, but for exemple, some dragonflyes life more time then that, i know because when i was a kid, i used to grab all the insects i could, to make studies, and i never have catch a dragofly that lives so short!!, my record on a bottle with one goes for 3 days and some hours. to accept that as absolute trues, no exeptions can exist, and there are many exeptions for many of that "trues" :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
