Fact # 1

weird and fun facts

Honey is the only food that does not spoil over time. If you find yourself in a desperate situation alongside a 2000 year old honey jar, just go ahead and eat it, it’s delicious!

Fact #2

Our planet has so much gold in its core that if you ever found a way to extract it all out you could easily layer the entire land surface of our planet with a gold layer that could reach an average’s person knee height.

Fact #3

weird and fun facts

The Kakapo is a bird which emanates a strong and pleasant odor that allows predators to easily track it down, thus it is a critically endangered species.

Fact #4

A cockroach can live up to two weeks without its head before eventually dying of starvation. Do not cut a cockroaches head off if you want to kill it!

Fact #5

Fact #6

weird and fun factsPigs can not only orgasm but their orgasms can last up to 30 minutes. I cannot help but wonder what the pig is actually able to do during those 30 minutes.

Fact #7

weird and fun factsA couple of lions can mate over 50 times in a single day. I have especially put this right below the pig orgasm fact. What would you choose: quantity or quality?

Fact #8

weird and fun factsThe United States have six different languages considered official: Arabic, Chinese, English, French Russian and Spanish. This amount of foreign languages declared official is due to America’s large cultural diversity.

Fact #9

weird and fun factsDo not try to sneeze with your eyes open! It is impossible to do it involuntarily and if you force it, the pressure will be strong enough to pop one of your eye balls out. I’m serious, do not try sneezing with your eyes open.

Fact #10

weird and fun factsThe actual color of Coca Cola is green but it turns black after a certain food coloring is added.

Fact #11

weird and fun factsAdolf Hitler fought against J R R Tolkien in WWI and had only one testicle. He was also a vegetarian and he liked to paint from time to time. Someone must have bullied him a lot over the fact he had only one testicle.

Fact #12

weird and fun factsAll months beginning on a Sunday will have the 13th set on Friday.

Fact #13

weird and fun factsYour tongue also produces a print which as well as a fingerprint, it is different for every individual. Imagine how our lives would have turned out if caught suspects would have been put to slide their tongue in ink before placing it on a piece of paper.

Fact #16

weird and fun factsTyrannosaurus Rex  or simple, the T Rex lived closer in time to the human era than to the era of the Stegosaurus. On a similar manner, Cleopatra lived close to the human moon-landing than to the construction of the great Egyptian Pyramids.

Fact #17

weird and fun factsCelery and cucumbers are foods with negative calories. This means that while eating them, your body consumes more calories than the foods actually have in them. No wonder nutritionists often include cucumbers in their diet plans.

Fact #18

weird and fun factsFrench people call English kiss what English people (and roughly the rest of the world) call a French Kiss. Who cares what country it originated from? Just kiss the man/woman already!

Fact #19

weird and fun factsEver wondered why rappers do not use the colors orange, purple and silver in their songs? It is because there are no words that actually rhyme with these ones, in the English dictionary.

    if you youtube eminem about rhyming the word orange he shows how it’s done

  2. king322@comcast.net' PJ Parker says:

    Just telling someone that some tidbit of information is a FACT does not make it so. Without citation or reference, anything can be labelled a fact. You have to prove a fact to your reader, otherwise, it’s just your opinion.

    How many faceless aliases are there on the internet with an opinion that they claim is a fact? Every single person on the internet.

    Do some research and learn how to cite a fact in an article.

  3. spenc178@gmail.com' Adam says:

    The US does not have an official language. This is well known. Even though most of these are commonly known, such a blatantly stated falsehood makes the validity if the rest of these “facts” questionable.

  4. hhhhh@gmail.com' mia says:

    You can sneeze with your eyes open. ( look on youtube)
    Orange- change
    silver- finger

  5. JoeyHoey@inbox.lv' Joey says:

    Made me laugh.

  6. dickweltz@msn.com' Richard Weltz says:

    With respect to “fact” #8, the USA has never declared any language as “official.” Not even English.

  7. a@a.aaa' Billy Bob Troy says:

    “(and roughly the rest of the world) call a French Kiss.”

    Really?!
    “Roughly the rest of the world” call a kiss with your tongue a french kiss?
    Where do you have that information from?

    I pretty sure it’s roughly only the english speaking countries, who are calling a tongue kiss for french kiss.

  8. savagemick@gmail.com' Mick says:

    Well, #17 is bs so I wonder about the rest: wiki/Negative-calorie_food

  9. no@email.com' joe says:

    the one about sneezing is false.

  10. mbizinc@yahoo.com' 10awesome says:

    Hey, Mick. #17 isn’t really “bs.” If you look closely, we stated the same thing as the Wiki article you linked to. These foods require more energy to digest than they end up providing to the body.

  11. mbizinc@yahoo.com' 10awesome says:

    We should have probably called it “main languages” instead of official.
