    This one surprised me. I always assumed white wine was made from green grapes and red wine was made from red grapes!

    The Big Mac was invented in the town where I used to live in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Sadly, the McDonalds was torn down and replaced with a Family Video before I was even born.

    Einstein's brain was cut out after he died, to see if his brain was different then others. However, his brain got stolen. He decided to cut it into pieces and sell the parts.

    Napoleon's penis was cut off during the autopsy and sold at an auction, where a man bought it and hid it under his bed until he died, when his daughter inherited it and sold it for $100,000.

    Women and men share an incredible amount of biological differences aside from the obvious (and private) external features and chromosomes:

    -Women have larger pelvises than men which are presumably intended to support the weight of the person and the child during pregnancy. Men have much smaller pelvises which cause their legs to spread outward naturally. (think "#manspreading")
    -The general makeup of women's skeletal structure is also slightly different, especially their faces. Scientists are able to tell female skeletons from male skeletons by the structure of the skull, pelvis (obviously), and other parts of the body.
    -It's true, women also think differently than men. The brain in women generally behaves slightly different and "lights up" in different way partially due to female hormones, but also due to minute differences in DNA
    -The skin of women and men, including hair follicles, oils not influenced by makeup, and texture also differ. Men generally tend to have more oily skin, and thicker hair follicles than women.
    -Men almost always have broader shoulders than men. A kind of flip-flop in comparison to their pelvises.
    -Men are also generally taller, and more muscular (I'm still laughing at that one), than women, but aren't as intuitive with their brains. Women are the brains, men are the brawn, so-to-speak.
    -It's a proven scientific fact that women usually like wild, rowdy, and outgoing guys over quiet and reserved men.

    -The Agency that controls the New York City Subway system spent over 200,000USD on an advertising campaign to stop "manspreading," an act that is literally nearly impossible for men to do for extended periods of time. (I'm talking a couple minutes. It's downright uncomfortable)

    -In Korea and China, the number 4 is considered unlucky because in hanja, the word '4' (sa) is the same as the word 'dead'.
    -In Korea and China, you should never write a persons name in red ink, as only the names of dead people are written in red.
    -Tomato is a fruit, but we eat it as a vegetable. In Korea, many people believe that tomato is a vegetable, even though they eat it as a fruit.
    -There is a very serious discussion about bananas that suggests they are herbs, not fruit.
    -The square root of 6 is 2.449489742783... This is meaningless, but still a fact.
    -Any number multiplied by 9 will also sum to 9. For example, 9x23 = 207. 2+0+7 = 9.
    -There are 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary and those who don't.
    -A common food in Peru is Cuy, which is actually a Guinea Pig. It is served whole with teeth still visible so you can tell it is not a cat. It tastes like oily chicken wings. I wouldn't recommend it.
    -The Korean word for belly pork is samgyupsal. This translates as 3 layered fat.
    -White wine can be made from red grapes. the colour comes from the skin, not the flesh of the fruit.

    @Coolasice, I could say whole numbers only, although it is true for many fractions.

    Theoretically it is still true for any number, even your example!

    While indeed, 9 x 1/3 = 3. Let's look at 1/3 itself:
    1/3 is actually 0.3333 recurring. Therefore 3 x 0.333333 recurring = 0.999999 recurring!
    You can prove that 0.999 recurring is = to 1:

    let's call 0.99999 recurring a.
    10 times a = 9.99999 recurring.
    10a - a is the same as 9.999... - 0.999...
    This is 9.
    so 9a = 9
    a = 9/9 = 1

    Therefore 3 is actually 0.999... x 3
    Which comes to 2.99999...7
    You'll note the 2 and 7 add to 9! Of course the final 7 is unobtainable as there are infinite 9s before it but the last number in the solution would be the 7 which completes the fact.

    New fact!

    Dyk?

    That baby koalas

    eat

    their mother's poop!....this is because koalas only eat eucalyptus leaves which are only digestable by adult koalas,
    they have these hind colons used to ferment the leaves ....and when the bebe koala gets hunggy, the momma koala just poops out a green,hearthy,eucalyptusy poop meal!


    Fantastic right?!

    Owls don't poop like most animals, they actually regurgitate their waste in a vomity poop pellet known as an "owl pellet." They can contain undigested bones, rocks, and other things it ate.

    The Brontosaurus never existed. It was mistakenly assembled combining the bones of a couple different dinosaurs.

    El Niño is a weather phenomenon that occurs roughly every 7 or so years. It is the result of the warming of the Pacific Ocean spreading from the equator. It is especially famous in California because it brings excess rain. Howevr, it adversely affects the weather of other locations. In Chile, they prepare for major flooding and in India it often has a weaker monsoon season or skips it completely.

    Gravity and time is confusing... I wonder when we'll unveil their properties and actually understand how they work..

    I thought we already understood how they worked.

    Gravity:
    "The formula is F = G*((m sub 1*m sub 2)/r^2) where F is the force of attraction between the two bodies, G is the universal gravitational constant, m sub 1 is the mass of the first object, m sub 2 is the mass of the second object and r is the distance between the centers of each object."

    Time:
    Time = Distance/Speed.
