19 Amazing Facts That Seem Fake at First Glance

19 Amazing Facts That Seem Fake at First Glance

Being a scientist is fun: you conduct new experiments every day (some of them are totally crazy!). And all these experiments can prove incredible facts, and we chose those we considered the most amazing and unbelievable. TIMESTAMPS ‘Pinky promise’ means 'If I break the vow, I'll cut off my finger' 0:39 Jupiter and Saturn have diamond rains 1:14 There are more than 1.6 million ants per person on Earth 1:53 There are more artificial flamingos than live ones 2:16 The strawberry is not a berry 2:46 Bananas, though, are berries 3:10 There is a hollow 100-foot worm living in the ocean 3:35 Mithridates VI was immune to poisons 4:06 If we lived in darkness, we would be able to stay up for 36 hours 4:33 Our foot is as long as our forearm 5:17 Neil Armstrong’s space suit was made at a bra factory 5:43 "Gadget" was one of the first three atomic bombs 6:05 Ann Hodges is the only person to survive a meteorite strike 6:33 Koalas have a unique fingerprint pattern 7:09 The surface area of Russia is bigger than that of Pluto 7:36 What if a monkey recognizes itself in the mirror 8:00 Dolphins can talk on the phone 8:33 Oxford University is older than the Aztec Empire 9:07 You can survive a shark attack by staying still 9:29 SUMMARY - When making a promise, children link their little fingers and say a certain vow, different in every culture. In fact, during the Edo period, bandit clans had a ritual of cutting off their right little fingers to prove their loyalty. - Myrmecologists worldwide made an estimate that 1 to 10 quadrillion ants are living on Earth now. That means there are more than 1 million of these insects for each human! - There are several times more plastic flamingos worldwide than there are live ones. The latter are counted at 2 to 3 million, while the number of their plastic counterparts reaches almost 1 billion. - As a matter of fact, the "berry" of the strawberry isn’t at all its fruit. It’s just an overgrown receptacle that carries the pure fruit on it. - The banana plant is, in fact, giant grass, and bananas are its berries. According to the definition, a berry is a "soft and juicy fruit containing several seeds." - A pyrosome looks like a giant transparent and hollow worm, but it, in fact, consists of thousands of organisms that glow in the dark and replicate themselves. - Mithridates VI of Pontus had been taking small doses of various poisons since childhood to work up an immunity to them. During the riot, the Romans wanted to take him hostage, and Mithridates tried to poison himself but couldn’t because of his training. - Our thumb is as long as our nose, and our lips are as long as our index fingers. - Few know that the space suit of the first man on the Moon was made at a factory which produced bras and lingerie in Dover, DE. Well, we just hope Neil felt comfortable in it. - Russia’s surface area is 17,098,246 sq. km., and Pluto’s surface area is 16,650,000 sq. km. - Every dolphin has its signal name that appears in adolescence and is kept their whole life. It’s known that dolphins can tell their relatives’ signals from all the rest. - The first students came to Oxford in 1096, while the Aztec city-state of Tenochtitlan was founded in 1325. That means the university is 200 years older. - Keep an eye on the shark: when it has passed by you, try to find a way out of the water. However, if you can’t and have to defend yourself, hit it on its gills, eyes, or the tip of its nose. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

10 Bodybuilders That Took It Too Far

10 Bodybuilders That Took It Too Far

10 Bodybuilders That Took It Too Far ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: miniminter1992.29@gmail.com Bodybuilders are a special kind of people who have incredible willpower and determination. The majority of bodybuilders usually achieve their goals and go on to win many competitions and are happen with their progress and performance. However, there are some bodybuilders that don’t know when they should stop and will do anything to be bigger than all the others. But before we start, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and turn on notifications so you’ll be first to know when a new video comes out. Now check out these 10 Bodybuilders That Took It Too Far. 10. Phil Heath – Nicknamed ‘The Gift’ Phil Heath is the current seven-time Mr. Olympia Champion and is currently tied with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the third all-time number of wins behind two other bodybuilding greats Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman. He won his first title back in 2011, and if he continues his winning streak, he could go down as one of the best bodybuilders of all-time. 9. Markus Ruhl – Markus Ruhl is what many call a ‘mass monster’. It’s interesting how Marcus Rule got his start in bodybuilding. He began training at the age of 18 as a recommendation from a doctor after he sustained a knee injury from playing soccer. When he started he only weighed 120 pounds! 8. Dorian Yates – Yates has the fifth-highest number of Mr. Olympia awards of all time and ranks behind Lee Haney and Ronny Coleman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Phil Heath. Yates had a turbulent childhood. The death of his father when he was just 13-years-old affected him massively. 7. Jay Cutler – This four-time Mr. Olympia winner got his start in bodybuilding at an early age. Before becoming a bodybuilder, Jay worked in his brother’s concrete construction business from the age of 11, but began training when he was 18 years old. Before he became a bodybuilder, he wanted to work as a corrections officer in a maximum security prison and graduated college in 1993 with a criminal justice degree. 6. Greg Kovacs – Before Kovacs was a bodybuilder he studied as an electrical engineer and was playing hockey and soccer before he got into bodybuilding. Greg Kovacs was considered the largest pro bodybuilder in the late 90’s with a height of 6 foot 4 inches and weighing a massive 420 pounds in the offseason and weighing 330 pounds when he was in contests. 5. Rich Piana – This bodybuilder became interested in the sport at just 6 years old after watching his mother train in the gym for her bodybuilding contests, and at just 11 years old, started weightlifting. Just four years later he had started to compete in contests. 4. Dean Wharmby - Our next bodybuilder shows us just how tragic things can be when a person dives headlong into the game without understanding exactly what they were doing. Wharmby, at his peak, looked just as good as any official competitor on the bodybuilding circuit however it was coming at a price. 3. Andreas Munzer – One look at Munzer and you’d believe that he was pulled straight from the action cartoons we watched as kids. Münzer was an admirer of fellow Austrian bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger and basically attempted to imitate Schwarzenegger. 2. Nasser El Sonbaty - Nasser El Sonbaty was a Serbian-Egyptian IFBB professional bodybuilder who began bodybuilding in 1983 and was born in Stuttgart. His father was Egyptian, while his mother was Serbian. His first competition was at a Junior State Championship in Germany in 1985, placing 6th. 1. Arnold Schwarzenegger – Everyone knows who the ‘action man’ is. He is worth an estimated $300 million dollars, and had arguably the most famous body in the world and was in a string of movie hits that included Predator, The Terminator, and Red Heat. However, it was when he starred in the violent 1982 smash hit ‘Conan The Barbarian’ that established him in Hollywood. We hope you enjoyed the video.

If You See This, Run Fast and Ask for Help!

There are so many different animals in the world that nobody even knows the exact number of existing species. Here are 12 strange animals that you should run from as fast as you can if you ever encounter them in the wild. Preview photo credit: Phill Torres https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClaC4xkueyTnrJQ6IvdMlgg TIMESTAMPS The caterpillar 0:31 Deathstalker 1:40 Carpet Viper 2:29 Cone Snail 2:53 Stonefish 3:23 Africanized Honey Bee 4:02 Brazilian Wandering Spider 4:42 Black Mamba 5:08 Poison Dart Frog 5:56 Tse Tse Fly 6:28 Blue-Ringed Octopus 6:56 Komodo Dragon 7:28 Box Jellyfish 7:55 SUMMARY For example, the caterpillar on the thumbnail looks like somebody dropped their wig by accident. It’s not very big, but it’s very hairy. You might think that because it’s hairy, it’s tender to touch, but don’t let it fool you. In fact, if you touch the hairs, they will penetrate your skin and sting you. According to the experience of other people, the pain is unimaginably bad, so stay away from this caterpillar if you can. However, if you got stung, doctors recommend washing the area of the bite. Use water and soap, but be very careful not to press the spot — because this will make the poison spread faster. After you finish washing the bite, put some ice to reduce the pain. If the pain doesn’t go away within the next 30 minutes or so, go to the hospital immediately.

10 Most Insane School Rules In South Korea

10 Most Insane School Rules In South Korea

10 Most Insane School Rules In South Korea ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: miniminter1992.29@gmail.com Most schools have the usual rules such as being dressed, showing up on time, and being quiet in the classroom. Usual school days are usually Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day. School break is during the summer and we all get a few months off to enjoy the sun and take a nice vacation. But things are not the same when it comes to other countries, and we found some strange rules in South Korea which might make you happy you don’t live there. Before we jump into the video, make sure you are subscribed and turn on notifications so you will be the first to know when we release a new video. Now check out these 10 strange school rules in South Korea. No Shoes - You probably know about the Asian tradition of taking off your shoes before entering a home. Well, the shoe etiquette goes beyond the house and into the classroom when it comes to students in South Korea. Strange Bathroom Rules - Like all the other schools in the world, to go to the toilet, you just have to ask for a pass to leave the classroom. And in many countries, the school supplies all the stuff like paper towels or toilet paper. But South Korea has a different system. School Uniform – The majority of secondary students in South Korea have to wear a uniform called a ‘gyobok’. From the start of middle school and up the uniform is strictly monitored and students must wear one. The uniform usually consists of a shirt, blazer, and tie, with skirts for girls and long trousers for boys. In addition to uniforms being standard, students also have standards for which they must wear their hair. The Five Year Teacher-Principal Rotation Cycle– Teachers in South Korea don’t end up staying at the same school as most teachers in other schools and universities in places like the United States for instance. After each five-year term at the school, everyone including the teachers, the vice-principal, and even the principal of the school go through a lottery-type system and have to change schools. Take Out The Trash – Most public buildings including schools in different parts of the world have their own staff to keep them clean. The only thing that students have to worry about is their studies. However, If you’re a student in South Korea, then you get to clean up the school yourself. Extra Lessons – When it comes to international tests, South Korea has some of the highest achievers. This is probably due to those 12+-hour Saturdays and other long days of study. For many students, a double-shift of school every weekday is a normal thing. Students attend classes from 7:30 AM, and then it’s lunchtime at 1:00 PM. At 5:00 PM school ends and self-study or special classes begin. At 7:00 pm there is dinner at school for one hour and at 8:00 PM self-study continues. Sleeping in class – One needs to wonder if it’s actually allowed to sleep during classes in South Korea. A survey was conducted that found one-third of students in South Korea sleep during class. In fact, it’s a normal thing to see 10-30 students passed out on their desks, and some fast asleep. No Homecoming Events – In U.S. High Schools, there is a dance at the end of the high school year called a promenade dance or as it’s sometimes called, ‘homecoming’ where students get dressed up nice, get a date and head to what many say is one of the most important and memorable time of the end of your high school year. Punishment – Every school has some type of punishment system for not doing what you’re supposed to be doing, or when certain people such as troublemakers or bullies need to have some discipline. A lot of different things can happen such as ending up in detention or worse, having to stay after school and write 1000 times Limited vacation – In most schools around the world, there is no school during the summer for many reasons. Some of those include the fact that it’s way too hot to sit in a classroom and do schoolwork, and who wants to be stuck inside during beautiful summer days when there are better things to do such as play on a beach or hang out with friends. And it’s usually the time when families take vacations.
