16 Things You Wish You Had Known Before (Or Maybe Not)


Do you like learning new things?

Adding new information to your brain, broadening your mind or hvaing pesrsonel satifsction (and no I didn't spell this wrong, you'll get it later).

If your answer is yes, then here are 16 things you may or may not have heard before!

1. An average human blinks 23 thousand times, his/her heart beats 100 thousand times, breaths 23 thousand times, filters 1500 liters of blood with the liver, produces 2 liters of acid with his/her stomach.


2. Most people remember the moment they first kissed better than the first time they had sex.


John Bohannon of Butler University asked 500 people about the important experiences of their lives, including their first kiss, and first love affair. The answers show that people can't forget their first kiss.

3. Ketchup, which we use as sauce, was sold as medicine in the 1830s.


4. Many lipsticks contain fish scales.


5. The fastest growing nail is the nail on your middle finger.


What is more interesting, the nail grows faster on the hand you use the most. Although it's not clear why this is so, it has been observed that the nail of a long finger grows faster and the nail of a shorter finger grows slower.

6. You can survive even if you lose most of your internal organs.


You can survive without your stomach, your spleen, your lungs, your kidneys, or 75% of your liver and 80% of your intestines. After that, you may not have a very good quality of life, but you won't die because you don't have these organs.

7. While reading this sentence, 25,000,000 of your cells died.


But don't worry because you are currently producing 300 billion new cells a day.

8. 1 percent of the static electricity in your television is based on the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation from the big bang that happened 13.7 billion years ago.


You know your screen acts kinda funny when you don't have good reception, that's what we're talking about.

9. According to the mathematical proof of the String Theory, the universe is 10 dimensional rather than 4.


As humanity, we are experiencing time as the 4th dimension, and we have no idea about the remaining 6 dimensions.

10. 2 out of 3 people lean their head to the right when they are kissing.


11. The dark side of the moon is not actually dark


We see the same face all the time, as the time of rotation around the Earth and the time of rotation around itself are equal. But as it turns around itself like Earth, it gets the sunlight at a normal level. In fact, there are concepts like a crescent, half moon, full moon. In other words, the "Moon's dark face" receives normal light.

12. Because the hard-boiled egg will be digested for a long time, the amount of energy the body spends is more than the egg can give.


This is why boiled eggs are a very good diet food.

13. In some cultures, the reason women cover their lips is because the lips are recognized as the second sexual organ after the vagina.


You know why...

14. 72% of prisoners are inside because of the crime they committed while experiencing depression.


It looks like there is some proof that we should take emotional disturbances more seriously, what do you think?

15. Ladybugs live on lice that are on farms. If it's a productive year, then there are a lot of ladybugs.


Farmers must like them a lot!
