Flowers are brightly colored to attract insects and other animals to them, Which help the plant’s fertilization by carrying pollen from one plant to another. Butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds are attracted to bright colors like reds, oranges, pinks, yellows, blues, and purples. A flower’s fragrance is another method of attracting pollinating visitors, especially at night when moths are out. The way in which a flower is shaped also attracts pollinators. For instance, butterflies prefer flowers with flat petals that act like a landing strip for them to sit on. Long, tubular flowers, such as honeysuckle, daylilies, and salvia are just a few of the flowers that attract hummingbirds because their long beaks can easily fit into the flower when gathering nectar.
In the late nineteenth century, second-rate actors couldn’t afford cold cream to remove their stage makeup, so they used ham fat and were called hamfatters until early in the twentieth century when these bad actors were simply called “hams.” Physical comedy became known as “slapstick” because of its regular use of crude sound effects: two sticks were slapped together off-stage to accentuate a comic’s onstage pratfall (prat being an Old English term for buttocks).
No. Very large finite numbers are not the same as infinite numbers. Infinite numbers are defined as being unbounded, or without boundaries or limits. Any number that can be reached by counting or by representation of a number followed by billions of zeros is a finite number.
Kids can help the homeless in a number of ways. You can collect canned food or freshly baked items and take them to a shelter. You can ask your parents if you can clean out your closet and give some of your old clothes to homeless children. You can collect toys from your friends, and then donate them to a local shelter. You can open a lemonade stand or have a bake sale and give the money you make to a shelter or an organization that helps the homeless. And, if you are old enough, you can volunteer to help out at a local shelter—you can baby sit, read, help with homework, or play games with the children.
