Facts always play an important role in your life and in your decisions. But exception is also a world which has its own meaning since there are most of the happenings in the world which are taken as the exception from the normal routine. I have collected some of the stunning, unique and amazing facts from around the world and have narrated them in the voice of images. Life will never be same after knowing these 10 Facts From Around The World!
10. If you believe that you’re truly one in a million, there are still approximately 7,184 more people out there just like you.
You aren’t that special! There are over 7 billion people on the planet right now. Each and every one of them should be treated with respect.
9. The strongest muscle of the body is Tongue
The Wikipedia has termed tongue as the strongest muscle of the body proportional to it’s size. Sometimes the heart is taken as the most strong part but that is untrue since it’s quite weak when you draw the comparison against size and muscle density.
8. A whole ecosystem lives in your belly button.
Scientists found 2,368 different species of bacteria living in belly buttons after swabbing the navels of just 60 people. In that study, 1,458 might have been entirely new to the scientific record. Aladdin could have showed Jasmine a “whole new world” just by looking toward their stomachs.
7. In China, any TV shows and films featuring time travel are censored.
In 2011, the State Administration for Radio, Film and Television in China began phasing out any form of entertainment depicting time travel because they “lack positive thoughts and meaning,” according to the New York Times.
The decision was based on the assumption that time travel provides a false impression of history and that Chinese television needs to stop appropriating “Western products” and generate content that is “intrinsically Chinese,” the Telegraph reported.
6. You can’t see as many colors as a chicken. You’ll also never see all the beautiful colors of a rainbow.
Everyday you are missing out on aspects of the universe simply because our bodies cannot process their wonders. How can we be supreme rulers of the world and have full domain over all other living beings when chickens can see more colors than we can? We need to rethink our place. Also rainbows are actually made up of more than 1 million colors, many of which we can’t see either. We are missing out!
5. In France, you can marry a dead person.
Postmortem matrimony has been legal in France since the reign of Napoleon, but it was only enacted in 1959, when a dam burst, killing 420 people, and a bereaved woman who lost her beau in the incident pleaded to marry him, according to Atlas Obscura.
There are, however, some caveats.
The living person is required to prove that the couple intended to marry prior to his or her loved one’s death and must obtain permission from the family of the departed, according to Atlas Obscura.
What’s more, the living person does not acquire the deceased’s assets following the union, so as to inhibit opportunistic gold diggers from exploiting the law.
4. We haven’t figured out the secret to immortality, but this jellyfish has.
The Turritopsis nutricula can live forever by reverting back to its early stage of life after becoming sexually mature. Although immortality may not be a real possibility for humans just yet, it is good to know that the basic idea isn’t just science fiction.
3. Americans spend 38 hours a year stuck in traffic.
Almost an entire work week of just being stuck! Washingtonians have it worst with an average of 67 hours a year, which is time they probably wish they could have back
2. Ethiopia follows a calendar that is seven years behind the rest of the world.
Ethiopia lives seven years behind the rest of the world based on its alternate calculations of when Jesus Christ was born, according to The Africa Report.
The Ethiopian calendar follows the beliefs of the country’s Christian Orthodox Church and is rooted in the Coptic or Egyptian calendar, which is about seven to eight years behind the mainstream Gregorian calendar, the BBC reported.
September 12 marks the start of the New Year for the African country — so their new millennium began on what we consider Sept. 12, 2007.
1. The first man to pee on moon!
The first man to urinate on the moon was Buzz Aldrin, shortly after stepping onto the lunar surface.
