11) Nine out of every 10 living things live in the ocean.

And last but not least:

This e-mail is called 'Money Bags.' So send this on to at least 5 friends and money will arrive in 5 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui, the one who does not pass this on will have money troubles for the rest of the year. Superstitious or not, I passed this along because it contained very interesting information and I'm not taking any chances!
