Although it is the last Friday of February but you got an extra leap day, February 29.

Now I know, and once I know ¾ of the Battle Won!

As it takes roughly 365.2422 days for the Earth to make a complete orbit around the Sun, an extra day is added as means of keeping our clocks (and calendars) in sync with the Earth and its seasons in order for the Gregorian calendar, the most universally used in the world with 365 days – to catch up to the solar year.

Rat Myths

Rats and Humans have coexisted in the city for hundreds of years.

Rats are extremely opportunistic animals: (R)esilient. (A)gile, (T)enacious.

Although rats are indeed to blame for spreading some diseases, humans are the root cause, as they leave uncontained garbage and litter that often attract rats around.

They are cheap and unpaid labourers, they eat after you – blame humans for poor sanitation, and bad housekeeping.

Human waste food, so rats enjoy after you.

Healthy adult rats are used in research by scientists for the good of humans. From formulating new cancer drugs to testing dietary supplements, rats play a critical role in developing new medical wonders. In fact, 95 percent of all lab animals are rats.

Rats are also relatively inexpensive and can be bought in large quantities from commercial producers that breed it specifically for research and can be an alternative food source for humans just like chicken or rabbits.

Cats love them.

Since we like enforcement – Rats create more jobs for the National Environment Agency.

Some people may fancy rats as pets.

While rats are often misunderstood, at least now you know these myths for the falsehoods they are.
