"Weird Facts" (a Sunday Lexi post)

Dear Readers,

Today is Sunday, which means a weird/odd post! Today's is offbeat info that you need to know for your life... Okay, you don't, but still, read on...

  • There's a mysterious radio signal known as the 'space roar' throughout the universe that no one can explain!
  • The human brain takes in 11 million bits of information every second but is aware of only 40.
  • If you drilled a tunnel straight through the Earth and jumped in, it would take you exactly 42 minutes and 12 seconds to get to the other side.
  • Animals can rain from the sky, and have before.
  • If you try to grow an apple tree from an apple seed, there is a nearly 100% guarantee that the apples will be COMPLETELY different from the one that had the seed.
  • There is a medical powder that will clot even major wounds almost instantly.
  • A one-year-old boy in India has broken a world record after being born with 34 fingers and toes.
  • The universe is beige.
  • Although the Stegosaurus dinosaur was over 9 metres long, its brain was only the size of a walnut.
  • Rabbits and parrots can see behind themselves without even moving their heads.
  • Similar to fingerprints, everyone also has a unique tongue print.
  • You get a new stomach lining every three to four days. (If you didn't, the strong acids your stomach uses to digest food would also digest your stomach.)
  • Laid end to end, there are about 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. And the hard-working heart pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood through those vessels every day.
