Have you always been curious about anything and everything? Like what's the smallest bone in a human body or the number of times you have walked around the world during your whole existence?
Having thoughts such as these and being inquisitive is completely normal. Contrary to what some might believe, being curious is actually a pretty healthy trait to have. If you’re in the mood for some interesting trivia, then sit back, get comfy and enjoy this list of the most random facts!
1. About Honeybees
Honeybees are fascinating creatures, wouldn’t you agree? A fun fact about them is that they are able to recognize human faces! For the longest time, people believed that distinguishing between faces is something only mammals with large brains were able to do.
Honeybees have the ability to differentiate between a wide variety of flowers and this is why people theorized that they could recognize faces as well. As always, scientists were more than ready to put this hypothesis to the test! They were fascinated to find that honeybees could indeed recognize faces even after only a short period of training.
2. About Texting
People find texting to be the easiest form of communication. According to some studies, around 95% of people text things that they would otherwise find very hard to say out loud. We might not be as honest during a face-to-face conversation but when it comes to texting, we hold nothing back.
3. About Carrots
Did you know that if you eat too much carrot, your skin will begin to turn orange?! This vegetable contains a large amount of the natural pigment known as beta-carotene which gives it the bright orange color that it has. Eating too many carrots would result in the pigment entering your bloodstream, which would then result in your skin turning orange. This condition is medically known as Carotenemia and although it is harmless, you wouldn’t want to go around looking like Garfield.
4. About Blue Whales
Blue whales are the biggest mammals in the world–and they are ginormous! They can grow as large as 100 feet and weigh over 150 tons. Their hearts are the size of a small car, so theoretically speaking, it shouldn't be hard for a three or four-year-old human baby to swim freely through the giant veins of a blue whale!
