Fact of the Day: Faster than a Cartoon

One of the most classic cartoon moments of all time is the Looney Tunes' Roadrunner outrunning the desperate coyote. However in real-life, the road-runner would not be so lucky. They can run about 20 mph while the coyote can reach speeds up to 43 mph while in pursuit.

When the coyote outrun them, they'll just fly to safety. So they still win in real life
