Just like our fingers, our tongue has its own unique print. We also have around 10,000 taste buds, and each of them has an average lifespan of 10 days. I’m tasting a pattern here.

A day wasn’t always 24 hours. 4.5 billion years ago, it was only 4 hours – that was because the moon was closer to the Earth. 3.5 Billion years ago, a day lasted 12 hours, and by the time we humans appeared, a day was roughly 24 hours long.

When scientists analyzed fossils, they found that dinosaurs likely made sounds similar to pigeons or the mumbles of an ostrich. Oh yeah, and the mighty T-Rex probably had feathers.
Canadian researchers found out that Einstein’s brain was 15% wider than average. But he never learned to drive a car. I’m guessing he was busy with the Theory of Relativity.
The first microwave was invented by Percy Spencer in 1945. The engineer received only $2 for his discovery. That’s equivalent to 30 bucks today.
Speaking of geniuses… When we learn something new, our brain changes its structure. We form new connections between neurons that help us link information faster.

Sonic the Hedgehog was put in the Guinness Book of Records for being the fastest video game character of all time. After all, he runs faster than the speed of light!
Our noses can detect more than 1 trillion smells. Sounds impressive, but a dog’s sniffer can detect 10,000 times more than that. While humans can smell if there’s a teaspoon of sugar in their coffee, a dog can smell a teaspoon of sugar in 1 million gallons of water.
Goats were the first to discover coffee’s energizing effects. They started feeding on coffee berries and got hyperactive for the rest of the day. The goat owner noticed this and spread the word!

The difference between mass and weight is that your mass is always the same, but your weight changes depending on your location. So, if you weigh 100 pounds on Earth, you’d only be 38 pounds on Mars.

Hey, we could be close… Physicists achieved teleportation in the quantum world. They managed to transfer the quantum characteristics of one atom to another at a different location.
Minnie Mouse’s full name was supposedly Minerva, and Mickey was going to be named Mortimer. But that was later changed, and Mortimer became Mickey’s rival. And have you ever noticed how Minnie, Mickey, and the whole gang always wear gloves? There’s a reason for that. It helped animators save time while still making the characters stand out.

The sun is halfway through its life. In fact, it just joined the A.A.R.P! no just kidding. In a little more than 4.5 billion years, it’ll keep its mass, but its volume will become like the Earth’s. Then, we can call it a white dwarf and move away to a different solar system. Pack your bags.
