I feel like I should let you guys know, that during this week, I experienced my first writer’s block. Since I landed in Lebanon, I’ve obviously been too distracted to come up with a good topic, despite having a book full of blog posts I could write about.
Now this blog post isn’t really what my blog is about. As you all know my blog is about you guys, the people, your thoughts and opinions. But, forgive me this one time; I’m doing something a bit different today; however, it’s definitely something you guys will enjoy, because some of these facts are mind blowing!
Fact #1: Okay so get this! You know how we sometimes exaggerate situations and say “he’s as fast as the speed of light!” okay I actually have never said that, but for the sake of this blog, let’s be hypothetical; well apparently, sometimes light doesn’t even travel at the speed of light…. weird I know…. It has been recorded that the slowest light has ever moved is at 61 kmph!!
Fact #2: You thought blue cheese was bad because the thought of eating mould ruins your appetite, butthere’s a Sardinian cheese called “Case Marzu” that contains live maggots!!! *shivers*. Not only that, but these maggots can jump up to five inches out of the cheese while you’re in the middle of eating it (whoever is crazy to do that!). So you need to shield your face with your hands because they could jump in your eye! Please, why would you put yourself through that kind of torture?!
Fact #3: Despite earthquakes being completely terrifying, and making people think they’re the weather man on Facebook, earthquakes also have another characteristic that makes it that much more scary. Apparently they can PERMANENTLY shorten the length of Earth’s day, by moving the spin of the Earth’s axis! Back in 2011, the earthquake in Japan, got rid of 1.8 microseconds off our days, and in the 2004 Sumatra quake, 6.8 microseconds were knocked off! So guys, if you feel like you’re suffering from sleep deprivation…. well blame it on the earthquakes! They’re taking precious time away from your sleep!
Fact #4: Just when you thought fad diets have gone a bit too far…. if you ever want to lose some weight, bang your head against a wall…it burns 150 calories an hour…and it also gives you a concussion, and possible brain damage…Yayyy for weight loss!
Fact #5: SO, if any of you are interested in making your own atomic bomb (I hope you’re not, but again hypothetical), it’ll only take 6 years and 9 months. All you need to do is consistently fart! That simple. 6 years and 9 months of farting will produce enough gas to create the energy of an atomic bomb! So start stocking up on those baked beans!!!
Fact #6: I found this fact so cool! Everyone knows Los Angeles, “where dreams come true”. Well, its real name isn’t as dreamy, and doesn’t really have that nice ring to it…. “El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Porciuncula.” It was founded in 1781 by a group of 44 settlers. It means: “The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angles of the River Porciuncula”
Fact #7: In Space you can’t cry because there’s no gravity to make the tears flow! So if you’re up there, and you’re peeing your pants because you’re so scared, just scream really loud, crying is not an option. MAN UP!
Fact #8: In 2003 the plane Boeing 727-223 was stolen from the airport in Angola…. till this day it has not been found after a worldwide search was conducted…one question…HOW?!!??
Fact #9: Most of the dust underneath your bed is actually your own dead skin…listen to your mum when she tells you to vacuum!
Fact #10: A British man changed his name to ‘Tim Pppppppppprice’ to make it harder for telemarketers to pronounce! HAAA! Take that annoying sale calls!
