Day 1

Take a deck of cards that is not in new deck order and then give then a generic and random shuffle them. You just created a brand new combination of 52 cards that has literally never happened before in all of history since cards were invented. Go ahead and shuffle them again and as many times as you like. Every single time you will have created a unique set of cards that has literally never existed before in history. No person has ever shuffled the cards and created the same set of 52 cards in the order you just created

Day 2

On average if it is raining outside and you do not have an umbrella you will actually get LESS wet if you walk at a normal pace through the rain than if you run through the rain. You will spend overall more time in the rain by walking, however there will be objectively less water droplets on your person

Day 3

The placebo effect still works even if you tell the person they are getting a placebo and not a real drug.

If you are not familiar with the placebo effect it is a harmless pill, medicine, or procedure that will not physically do what the placebo claims it will do, but tricks your brain into believing the desired outcome happened anyway

Day 4

There are more trees on earth than there are stars in the milkyway. Nasa has estimated there are around 400 billion stars in the milkyway while the estimate for number of trees is around 3 trillion

The Boss

incredible

Day 5

There are at least 17 distinctly different kinds of ice. You likely have only ever seen one type call Type I ice. The rest of the types of ice form under different pressures and temperatures. One of the types occurs when water freezes and it has absolutely no room to expand. Not even Niel Degrassi Tyson knows this type of ice exists

Bonus fact:
Two factors go into water freezing. The first one is temperature that everyone knows about, but the second is pressure. Water only freezes at 32°F at sea level and under Earth’s atmospheric pressure. If you put water into a vacuum chamber it will actually simultaneously freeze and boil at the same time.

Day 6

Recently in history bad eye sight has increased far faster than genetics can account for. After looking into it, science has determined the best way to ensure children do not need glasses is to ensure their eyes get exposed to a proper amount of sunlight. Children who get little to no sunlight are much more likely to need glasses.

Bonus fact:
Sitting close to the tv does not hurt or help your eyesight

Day 7

We have yet to actually discover why humans need sleep. We do know a few good things that sleep does, but it is not known why it is 100% necessary to live. You will die if you manage to go too long without sleep. There is even a rare genetic disease called fatal familial insomnia (FFI) that always eventually leads to death

I accidentally skipped a day :(

So i posted two

Day 8

Pure H²0 is both bad for you and dangerous to drink. It will kill cells that come into direct contact with it and after it can no longer kill cells it will still suck out nutrients from your cells and then you will pee those nutrients out. Osmosis can be a bitch

Bonus fact:
You can die from drinking too much water. Unfortunately people unaware of this have had water drinking competitions and people have died from this

The Boss

excuse me but that’s a repeat

Oh shit, someone is paying attention

Honey is the only food we currently know of that is capable of never spoiling.

The Boss

uhm…..

Day 10

If you are going 60mph and you hit a car head on that is also going 60mph you, as in the person driving the car, will suffer the exact same amount of force/damage that you would if you had instead driven 60mph into a non-moving brick wall.

The Boss

The Boss

wild

Day 13

Even though there are 365+ days in a year it only takes 23 different people in a room for there to be a 5050 chance that two of these people share the same birthday.

With 40 people in a room there would be a 90% chance and with 70 people there would be a 99.9% chance.

Day 14

Humans are capable of using echolocation, the same thing bats use to get around. It is rare but there are instances of people who are blind who have developed this ability

The Boss

Day 15

Napoleon Bonaparte, history’s most famous short dude, was actually above average height. He was not short at all. The enemies of Napoleon launched a propaganda campaign calling him a short man and it worked.

The Boss

Day 16

There is a species of moth that has a pattern on it’s wings that resemble flies eating poop.

The Boss

Day 17

Quantum Physics. All of it. If you don’t know anything or much about quantum physics it is literally black magic where things literally appear out of thin air, or completely morph and change into other things. A particle can be a wave or a particle. Simply observing a particle can permanently change how the particle acts.

The craziest example of this is the quantum eraser.

The Boss

Day 18

Trophy hunting exotic or endangered animals actually is a much greater good more often than it is bad. People pay very large sums of money to be able to legally trophy hunt these animals and this money really is used to protect these animals as a whole and ensures that there will always be more of these animals. After all if the species would go extinct now then these places would lose all the income generated from it.

Also if you are the people who have to live next to say lions, you don’t actually care very much how cute or cool that lions are. All you care about is feeding your family and not dying because of lions. Providing these people with an income makes the people who actually have to live with these animals want to keep them alive.

Day 19

If you could fold a piece of paper 42 times, the thickness of the folded paper would stretch from earth to the moon.

Ball lighting is a mysterious and yet unexplained atmospheric phenomenon. The term describes luminescent, spherical objects that vary from pea size to let several meters in diameter.

In order to make seedless watermelon you still need to make seeded watermelon. Not just to carry on the plant lineage but actually in order to make seedless watermelon at all. Seedless watermelon plants require the pollen of a seeded watermelon plants to produce it’s fruit, so farmers typically plant 50% seeded watermelon and 50% seedless in order to get as much seedless watermelon as possible
