So I read somewhere recently that when someone gets a kidney transplant, doctors usually leave the original kidneys there and just put the third kidney in their pelvis! You can’t imagine how wide my jaw dropped. And so my curious mind went to work. I decided to find out a few other fun, weird, strange but true facts that are shocking. These aren’t fiction, truth is stranger than fiction! You won’t believe 20 random facts I found.
Here they are;
1 Baked beans are actually not baked. Even though they’re called “baked beans”, they’re actually stewed. I guess the name should rather be stewed beans then. rolling eyes
2 Do you know the name of someone who reads in bed? A librocubicularist! If you’re like me, feel free to call yourself that!)
3 Did you know that flowers are known to grow faster when music plays near them? Now I’m wondering if they have ears.
4 (You can experiment with this now.)You can’t hum while holding your nose close. Did you just try that? Good job!
5 Earth is the only planet not named after a god. All other planets have a ‘godly‘ name. I guess that’s why humans live on earth because we’re already gods init?
6 Do you know it rains diamonds on Saturn and Jupiter? DIAMONDs!!! I think this planet earth needs to rain us some diamonds too please.
7 Avocados and bananas are berries but a strawberry is not a berry. Lol. (A case of when a berry is not a berry).
8 The “sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick” is the hardest tongue-twister. I’ll live you to try it.
9 Children laugh about 400 times a day while adults laugh on average of about 15 times a day. You can’t blame us, we have a lot to bother about. (Unleashing my inner child though).
10 Did you know it is impossible to tickle yourself? The cerebellum, a part of the brain warns the rest of your brain that you’re about to tickle yourself. Since your brain already knows this, it simply ignores the resulting sensation.
11 The best time to buy a pair of shoes is in the afternoon. This is because the feet gets a bit swollen around that time.
12 The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. Little wonder it is so powerful!
13 The name of all the continents end with the same letter with which they start. ( I’m sure you’re counting and spelling now.) Lol
14 Saudi Arabia imports camels from Australia. Now this is so weird, being that Saudi Arabia has more deserts! one would think it’s the other way round.
15 The Romans used to clean and whiten their teeth with urine. It worked apparently, for them. But please don’t try it.
16 The shortest sentence in English language is “Go“. One would think ‘Go’ is only a verb. sigh
17 It is physically impossible for you to lick your elbow! Keep trying. One day you might be lucky.
18 A pound of houseflies contains more proteins than a pound of beef. (Is that telling us to eat more houseflies?) yikes!
19 You are 1% shorter in the evening than in the morning.
20 Contrary to popular belief, there are more people speaking French in Africa than in France.
