Venus orbits the Sun at an average distance of about 0.72 AU (108,000,000 km; 67,000,000 mi), and completes an orbit every 224.65 days. It rotates three times on its axis in 729.27 days, the Earth goes twice around the Sun ( 728.50 days). Why does it do this? Scientists believe it was struck by a big comet. This impact halted the normal spin of the planet and set it turning slowly backwards. Also, if you quickly pull a catheter out of your urethra, you'll split your dick like a banana.
