How many types of Beanie Babies are there

according to TY website - there at 507 kinds of actual beanies - 309 retired- 198-current.

these are the actual types of beanies - if you are looking for original there are " an original 9" these were the first 9 produced.

(yeah I am bored)

37 - there are 66 bricks in level 1 of arkanoid ;)
#2 the average speed of rainfall is the speed at which all things fall, 32.17 ft/s². Wind can alter the rate which it reaches the ground by forcing it's distance to become greater, but can't alter it's decent speed. Snow is different since it has parachute-like qualities due to it's crystalline formation.

#6 55 and 89

#16 a red sky means that they water content in the ozone is low, thus a lesser chance for rain, but a fair chance for wind (especially if there are high, scudding clouds), while a red sky at dawn means the opposite. It has to do with light refraction in the water vapor. Also, it's just an old saying based on general observation.

6) 112358132134 What are the next 2 numbers in the sequence?

Fibonacci is your friend. The next two DIGITS in the sequence are 55, but the next two NUMBERS would be 55 and 89.

7) Albert Ghiorso, Glenn T. Seaborg, John R. Walton and Torbjørn Sikkeland

41) What does a crowing rooster symbolize in Christian religious art?

Most often used to symbolise Peter's denial of Jesus but can also represent wathfulness or vigilance

Matt 26:

34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
