2: One droplet of rain stays in Earth’s atmosphere for about 10 days.
3: Rain isn’t a teardrop shape,  it’s actually ovular.
4: Every second, 16 million tons of water is evaporated from the surface of Earth.
5: Every second, 16 million tons of water precipitates back onto Earths’ surface (Water Cycle!).
