#1 Sharks have been around for at least 420 million years, meaning they have survived four of the “big five” mass extinctions. That makes them older than humanity, older than Mount Everest, older than dinosaurs, older even than trees. Yet we could potentially see them extinct in our lifetime
#2 If a biological trait is common in almost every human, then it evolved for a reason. Almost everybody has the same response to the “uncanny valley,” or in other words we are made uncomfortable by things that look almost human but not quite. This implies humans once had a reason to fear something that looks human but isn’t
#3 Egyptian mummies wouldn’t be so rare today if the Victorian British hadn’t eaten most of them
#4 You have no way of really knowing if everyone experiences reality and consciousness the same way you do
#5 Statistically speaking, if you are a woman and get murdered, it was most likely by a family member, partner or ex-partner, in your own home. If you are a man and get murdered, it was most likely by an acquaintance or stranger, in a public place
#6 Maximum part of oxygen came from sea/oceans. But people always talks about protecting trees not sea/oceans
#7 The world invests more money in viagra and botox than in the study of Alzheimer
#8 Cotard’s syndrome, also called “walking corpse syndrome,” is a condition wherein the patient believes they are dead, dying, missing parts of their bodies, or don’t exist. Some people with Cotard’s syndrome may stop speaking or eating since they believe they’re dead

#11 I read somewhere ( don’t remember where) that you are more likely to be bitten by someone in New York than to be bitten by a shark
#12 Yellowstone is a giant super volcano. If it blows, things on this planet will go really bad really fast
#13 Chimps don’t attack to kill. Instead they aim for the genitals, face, and fingers and will leave the opponent alive. There have been many people who have owned chimps who have turned on their owners and left them incredibly disfigured. One case, the chimp ripped a man’s junk off. In all cases, faces were mutilated and fingers were chewed off. It’s pretty much how they instinctively fight in the wild. So if you think that chimp is going to be a cute pet, better think twice. Even if you raised it since it was born, they’ll turn on you at any second. A disfigurement roulette waiting to happen. Vile creatures
#14 If given access to it, butterflies will happily drink blood

#19 Your eyes have a seperate immune-system from the rest of your body. Once your body’s immune system discovers you have eyes, it will attack and inflame the blood vessels in the back of your eyes. This can lead to your vision decreasing or even going blind
