Why Spiders Spin webs ?
The spiders web is actually a trap to catch prey.Beneath the spider`s body , there are tiny openings from which it can produce very fine , strong silk thread. The spider fastens the end of this thread to something firm , like a twig or a beam or any piece of furniture . It then goes round and round secreting the silk thread and spinning a wheel of almost invisible gossamer thread.. Later it spins " spokes" to this wheel which strengthen the structure. The spider now patiently waits until a fly gets stuck in its web. And then lunch is ready !

Why Do we Sneeze ?
Atichhooo ! couldn`t stop that sneeze? Howcome?

It is because the act of sneezing is an involuntary one. Sneezing just happens . When we breathe in dust or have a cold , the inside lining of our nose, which is very sensitive, gets irritated. We take a deep breath and when our lungs fill with air , our windpipe closes , our stomach muscles compress the air . Then our windpipe opens again and the air flies out suddenly , in a sneeze which blows the irritating offender out from our nose
Atichooooo !!!!
