Let’s start small:
#1. A Swedish couple named their kid “Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116.”
The name is pronounced “Albin.”
They claimed it was “a pregnant, expressionistic development that we see as an artistic creation.” Sweden fined them 5,000 kronor.
#2. DID YOU KNOW? The dot over over an “i” is called a “tittle:”
#3. Honey doesn’t spoil, ever.
It’s due to the chemical properties. You could theoretically eat 3,000-year-old honey.
#4. Marilyn Monroe had a higher IQ (163) than that of Albert Einstein (160).
Now get ready to have your childhood mind blown:
#5.Everybody think Arnold is wearing a skirt, but it is actually polo under a sweatshirt
#6. Some people claim an episode of Johnny Bravo predicted 9/11.
In this scene from a Johnny Bravo episode that aired on the Cartoon Network on April 27, 2001, a movie poster appears to show a burning tower emitting a smoke cloud with the ominous words “COMING SOON.”
Let’s go deep…
#7.Tiger sharks’ fetuses fight, and sometimes cannibalize, each other in the womb. The survivor is born.
#8. A Blue Whale’s heart is so big, a small child can swim through the veins:
#9.There are more bacteria cells in your body than actual body cells:
#10.If you dug a hole to the center of the Earth and dropped a book down, it would take 45 minutes to reach the bottom:
Speaking of time…
#12. The Tyrannosaurus rex lived closer in time to humans than to stegosauruses.
#13. In 1938, Adolf Hitler was Time magazine’s Man of the Year and in 1939, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
World War II began in 1939
#14. The USSR requested a clear-colored Coca-Cola in the 1940s so that it looked like vodka
Marshal of the Soviet Union Georgy Zhukov requested a clear version of the drink so that he wouldn’t be seen drinking Coca-Cola in public; Coke was regarded in the Soviet Union as a symbol of American imperialism. To satisfy his request, a chemist removed the soda’s caramel color, and Coca-Cola put the drink in a clear bottle with a white cap and red star. Fifty cases were sent over to Russia. The precursor to Crystal Pepsi, perhaps?
#15. In 1903 the Wright Brothers flew for the first time…
#16 …38 years later, in 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor…
#17 … and 28 years later, in 1969, man landed on the Moon.
Mind not blown yet? Things are about to get REAL:
#18. The Great Pyramid was built circa 2560 BC…
#19 … and Cleopatra lived 69 BC – 30 BC…
#20 … and the first Moon landing was in 1969, AD…
Which means Cleopatra lived closer to the Moon landing than she did to the building of the Great Pyramid.
#21. Scotland’s national animal is unicorn
#22. And UNICORNS are found in the BIBLE!!
