Did you know!?

Being a social butterfly is hard work!
So many times at Dinner Parties or social events I am searching for what to say. 
Did You Know is a fun way to inform our readers of insightful, amusing and interesting facts, so you don't just have to talk about the weather next time you have a get-together...

DID YOU KNOW that Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country.
Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica .
This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world.
As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert; the average yearly total precipitation is about two inches.
Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it is ice.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.
