You’ll Be Amazed By How Bizarre And Random These Facts Are!

1. Each year, around 1 billion metric tons of food are wasted worldwide.
Food waste is a major issue. How large? 931 million metric tons, roughly! According to the Food Waste Index Report 2021, which surveyed 54 countries and found that the bulk of wasted food (61%) originates from homes while restaurants and other food services contribute 26% of wasted food, researchers with the United Nations predict that that amount of food was wasted in 2019. Just 13% of food waste is generated by grocery retailers.

2. All the swans and dolphins belong to the Queen!
Yes, you heard correctly; she is the owner of them all. Well, not ALL of them, just the ones in the waters off the coast of the UK. The whales are all hers as well! Rest certain that she won’t become overpowered and raise a super army of dolphins, swans, and whales.
3. Apple Pip Poison Is Real!
3rd on our list is maybe the most random fact of them all. If you believe it, a LOT of apple pip can be poisonous for humans and animals. Don’t worry the next time you swallow a stray pip because they contain the deadly chemical cyanide; nevertheless, you would need to consume thousands of them to cause yourself any harm.
4. The human body is positively glowing.
Even though it may be difficult to detect with the naked eye, everyone you pass every day is shining. A very little amount of visible light (defined technically as illumination that is 1,000 times less bright than levels of light that we would be able to perceive) is emitted by the human body. The body emits the least amount of light at about 10 a.m. and the most at around 4 p.m., according to research done in Japan using a unique camera to monitor this glow. Scientists relate this rhythm to changes in one’s metabolism.

5. There are only 2 longest one-syllable words in English
The terms “scraunched” and “strengthens” are the longest one-syllable words in English. Some have suggested adding “squirreled,” although most dictionaries state that squirrel should be pronounced as two syllables (squir-rel). Two other lengthy one-syllable words with only nine letters each are “screeched” and “strengths.”
6. Marie Curie is the only other recipient of Nobel prizes in two distinct fields.
For studying spontaneous radiation, the trailblazing scientist shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1903 with her husband. Later, for her work on radioactivity, she received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1911. She is now one of only six people to have won multiple Nobel Prizes, and she is the only one to have done it in two distinct sciences. (Linus Paulding, a chemical engineer, won the Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Peace; all other multiple recipients were given awards in the same area.)
7. A fish with legs exists.
Its name is Pink Frogmouth, and it dwells VERY deep beneath the surface of the water. Its fins have turned into tiny stumpy legs it can walk on since it spends most of its time searching for food in the sand. Weird!
8. Superman wasn’t always able to fly.
Superman was able to leap tall structures with one bound in that first comic book. But since he couldn’t fly, he had to immediately return to Earth. Superman wasn’t able to fly until the 1940s when animators for a new animated series thought it would be too challenging to depict him constantly bending his knees. Smooth animation was shown to readers, and a superhero was given a new ability.
9. The living conditions of a narwhal’s past are revealed by its tusk.
Similar to how a tree’s rings can reveal its age and offer hints about the life it has had, a narwhal’s long tusk can reveal information about its history. According to recent research led by a bioscience professor at Denmark’s Aarhus University, the unusual arctic whale grows a layer to its distinctive tusk every year. Additionally, these layers provide information about the narwhal’s age (they can live up to 50 years), as well as the environment in which they lived, including the number of pollutants, the temperature, and even their diet. You become what you consume!
10. Libya is the hottest place on Earth.
El Azizia in Libya, where a temperature of 136 degrees Fahrenheit was measured on September 13, 1922, is the location with the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth. Although there have probably been hotter areas on the planet at previous times, this is the sweltering temperature that a meteorological station has ever officially recorded.
