07/17/2022 Weird Stuff   Leave a comment

I’m a huge fan of all things weird and unusual. The odder the better. I do know that many people who read my posts sometimes question the information I provide. I won’t say what I’m thinking but “KMA” immediately comes to mind. Anyone who lives with, near, or is part of the human race should realize that the weirder the facts, the more likely they are true. This is a weird, strange and odd planet and no one should be surprised by anything. Here’s my contribution for today.

  • Hippopotamus sweat is pink. It’s a combination of clear sweat and reddish hipposudoric acid secreted by the hippo. It helps protect them from sunburn and harmful bacteria.
  • Killer whales eat deer. It’s been reported in Alaska that deer are sometimes snatched by the orca’s when they attempt to take a dip in the water.
  • Thousands of human beings travel thousands of miles in the Fall to watch leaves die. Weird? Yes. True? Yes.
  • Bananas are technically berries. Strawberries and raspberries are not.
  • An average size human being could swim through the veins of a blue whale. The average whale’s heart is the size of a car.

  • Although the earth is 70% water, just 1% of it is considered drinkable.
  • Algae and plankton produce more oxygen than trees.
  • There are more trees on earth than there are stars in the Milky Way. Astronomers estimate that there are approximately 200-400 billion stars in the Milky Way, while scientists say the Earth contains 3 trillion trees.
  • Marijuana and the hops in your beer come from the same plant family. The Cannabaceae family also contains plants known as hackberries.
  • Samuel L. Jackson once held Martin Luther King Sr. hostage. During his college days, Jackson was part of a group that held the Morehead College Board of Trustees hostage. MLK Sr. was one of them.

WEIRD BUT TRUE
