    Whats the most expensive cookie in the world? Fortune cookies! There are many claims and stories about where the cookies really came from. The original fortune cookies came from Japan and are still sold today. They’re much bigger and made with sesame and miso, creating a more browner dough and a savory taste. The fortune is wedged in folds of the cookie rather than inside of it. The cookies we know and love today actually originated in America.

    What kind of dinosaur can talk really fast? A Rap-tor The Velociraptor in 1924 by Henry Osborn. It’s been said that it could run at a speed of 40 miles per hour. Many people may think that raptors had scaly skins but in truth, they more likely had feathers. To support this, raptor bones show that their arms had joints like birds and quill knobs for feathers. No wonder birds are decedents of dinosaurs. Image by Adam Baines
