Did you know? (Issue 1)

This topic will shed light on some of the recently discovered facts and information from many parts of the world. Some of them is really impressing and worth knowing and memorizing.

1. Jellyfish kill more people each year than sharks do.

Jellyfish is reportedly 15 – 30 times deadlier than sharks. Some species of stinging jellyfish are almost invisible in the water and the first warning anyone may get is large numbers of people leaving the water with painful, itching stings. Even after it is dead, the jellyfish can still continue stinging. The stingers activate upon touch and work whether the tentacle is still attached to a living jellyfish or not. Talk about a zombie ha?!!

2. Dogs understand human perspective.

A recent study revealed that dogs are much likely to steal food in the dark when humans cannot see them which indicates that they somehow understand that what they are doing is not right from a human’s point of view.

3. Children’s Day!

India actually celebrates Children’s Day on November 14th which is exactly 9 months after Valentine’s Day. I guess protection is off the table during that day!!

5. Facebook Language.

You can actually change Facebook language to upside down or pirate if you want to. Jack Sparrow would be happy. Hey, how come there is no Klingon option?!!

6. Millionaires.

Half of all millionaires are self-employed or own a business. Around 80% of them are college graduates. Only 18% of millionaires have a Master’s Degree. 8% have law degrees, 6% have medical degrees and 6% have a PhD. I mean, if they can do it, why can’t we?

7. St. Valentine.

In addition to love, St. Valentine is the patron saint of plague. How is that for a contradiction?!!

8. Oh Japan!!

  1. Hi Sam…I will definitely stay above water since reading about jellyfish vs. sharks. I’m probably somewhat safe though since…I prefer to ride the water [jet ski], rather than immerse myself in the water.

    Science is cool. Thanks for supplying some interesting facts!
