Top 10 Facts You were Sure In, are in Fact Wrong
Don’t bet in the facts you thought you knew for sure because you may lose. Not every worldly well known fact is correct and in fact most of them are actually only myths. Facts like Earth revolving around the Sun which we all know are true and we are all sure in them, turn out to be false. Keep reading to find out more, you will be surprised to find out some new and correct facts.
#1. The Earth doesn’t orbit around the Sun
The Earth is actually orbiting around the Solar System’s center of mass known as the Barycenter. This point often falls within the mass of the Sun, it can be shifted by the pull of larger planets. Therefore, at least some of the time, everything in the solar system is orbiting around empty space. Weird, right?
#2. No such thing as sugar rush
The sugar doesn’t actually make people hyper. The idea of a “sugar rush” is mythical, and in fact is only a placebo effect, Yale University discovers after a long research. So, if your kids are temperament it’s not because of those candies they ate, they are just lively kids and you should be happy about them.
#3. Red heads and blondes aren’t going extinct
Redheads and blonds are only becoming more rare as the world population increases but in order to go extinct every single person carrying redhead genes would have to die or not reproduce, which pretty much will not going to happen, so don’t worry if you’re a natural redhead or blond, just plan how many kids you want to have.
#4. Bats aren’t blind
Even though the saying says “blind as a bat” and most people believe that these flying mice can’t see a thing that is wrong. While many species do use echolocation, some have excellent night vision and don’t rely on echolocation at all.
#5. Fingers wrinkle in water from a completely different reason
You had been told by your mom that your fingers are getting wrinkled because you overstayed in the tube. Your fingers don’t wrinkle because they absorbed water. They wrinkle because thebrain tells them to. The real reason for now is not known to the humanity.
#6. Cracking your knuckles won’t cause you arthritis
Yes, some people find the cracking knuckles things very annoying and mostly your elder ones were scaring you that you will get arthritis when you get older. No, it is not true. The cracking sound you get from cracking your fingers is just the sound of “exploding” nitrogen atoms. So relax and crack as much as you want.
#7. Hair and fingernails don’t grow after the person dies
Don’t trust anyone who claims this, because it is not true. The surrounding skin will start to recede, however, so it may appear as though they are growing.
#8. The Lion is not King of the Jungle
Lions for instance don’t even live in the jungl, but they live on the African plains. Females do most of the hunting, and not males, who are often associated as the hunter killers. So if somebody actually rules a territory are the females.
#9. Red doesn’t make bulls go crazy
Sorry to break this for you but bulls are actually colorblind, and it doesn’t make a difference what color is used for a matador’s cape. Bulls are naturally aggressive animals, and they might go after anything that irritates them. The thing that they are irritated from is the ring, the whole moving cape and the matador that provokes them.. You would be too, if a matador was waving a cape in your face, and thousands of people were cheering and yelling after you got poked and prodded by sharp objects in your back.
#10. Humans have more than 5 Senses
This might really surprise you because there are lots more, although the lists vary and the final number-of-senses tally is in great dispute. There are several boring ones that your body does without you knowing it, but let’s keep to the really interesting ones such as proprioception. It helps you pass the “close your eyes and touch your nose” test. Basically, it’s what lets two parts of your body connect without visual confirmation. If you’re touched your nose with your eyes closed, you used proprioception to do it. If you accidently smacked yourself in the forehead instead, you experienced a proprioception fail.
