14 Random Facts That Will Make You Sound Smarter Than You Actually Are


Here’s yet another random facts list to make you the smart-ass guy/gal at parties. Some weird history, some fascinating science, and some crazy coincidences, all for you to use to brag about your intellect here and there!

1. Women find men who have bellies less attractive.


That kind of sounds obvious, but it's actually an evolutionary reflex. Fat around the belly indicates a low level of testosterone, and that indicates a problem in reproductive capabilities.

2. A new relationship is most likely to end between the first 3 to 5 months.


3. We do actually look more attractive when wearing sunglasses.


The dark lenses cover up any asymmetrical oddities around your eyes, and research on facial attractiveness shows a clear link between symmetry and our perception of beauty.

As an added bonus, sunglasses provide a kind of scaffolding effect, imposing the appearance of an external, extra-chiseled bone structure on top of your relatively softer-featured face.

4. Men are more likely to pair up with women whose bone structure is similar to their own mothers.


5. Unfaithful men have lower IQs.

Dr. Satoshi Kanazawa, an Evolutionary Psychologist from the London School of Economics and Political Science, says the smarter a man is, the less likely he is to cheat on his partner.

According to his theory, intelligent people are more likely to adopt what in evolutionary terms are new practices  -  to become 'more evolved.' Therefore, in the case of fidelity, men who cannot adapt and end up succumbing to temptation and cheating are likely to be more stupid.

6. Under the Pope's new offer, those who follow the week's events on the Twitter feed can get a speedier transit through purgatory, hopefully on the way to heaven.


7. "Librocubicularist" is a person who reads in bed.


Yes, there's a word for it.

8. Airbags carry the risk of injuring or killing short people.


Especially female drivers who sit close to the steering wheel so they can reach the pedals are more likely to get injured.

9. Big tech companies are not always success stories. Microsoft wanted to buy Yahoo for $44 billion in 2008, but Yahoo didn’t want to sell. In 2016, the same Yahoo was sold for only $4.8 billion.


10. We are taller in the morning.


During normal activities of the day the cartilage in our knees and other areas slowly compress, but when you go to sleep and rest the cartilage goes back to normal. On average we are about 1 cm taller the morning than in the evening.

11. The sun burns 680 million tons of hydrogen per second.


12. Oral sex was illegal in Canada until 1969.


13. Roman emperor Claudius was seen as a bit weird in his era since he was interested only in women.


14. Leonardo da Vinci could draw forward with one hand while writing backward with the other; producing a mirror-image script.
