Hey everyone,

This week's challenge is to post a fact a day!

Did you know that a koala's fingerprints are do indistinguishable from human fingerprints that they have been mistaken at crime scenes before?

For this challenge we're asking you to find a random fact each day that you never knew before or that you think is interesting and share it with us here!

Don't forget to vote on next week's challenge ideas below and if you're interested in getting involved in some of the fun things we have going on at The Mix such as suggesting a weekly challenge idea, submitting something for the newsletter or hosting a general chat, let us know over on this form.

    Here's a cute penguin fact

    Little Blue Penguins are the smallest type of penguin, averaging around 33 cm (13 in) in height.

    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    Well this maybe an observation of today more than factual. But ive actually just done some looking at their website and seems factual. If youre not intested in Womans Newlook clothes lol then dont bother 😂😂

    Anywayyyy this is so random but NewLooks kids section is bigger than adults smallest size. I was gettingblack skinny trousers but someone put age 13 in the adults section & looked bigger than the size 4 i was looking at. & i mean i got them cause they was £4 lol but fit sooo much better than adults & theyre the right length & im not exactly short. Anyway  A kids waist is like 69cm for a 14- 15 year olds & an adults size size 4 is 54cm ...ect & a  then at size 10 is 70 cm waist like whattt thats nearly a 14-15 year old. their age 13 feels bigger & less suffocating for my stomach than adults size 8. So today i looked at the kids section (some are obviously kids style look) but rest is jut as cool & fashionable as the adults secton;) also cheaper ah

    “The longest time between two twins being born is 87 days”

    Sounds like The most hardest & stressful pregnancy.

    "When an infant koala – called a joey – is born, it immediately climbs up to its mother’s pouch. Blind and earless, a joey uses its strong sense of touch and smell, as well as natural instinct, to find its way."
