Did you know that there are some cool and weird things about our everyday lives that we didn’t know? Here are six cool facts that will blow your mind:
Orange can charge you phone
Citrus fruit can use as battery often used for the educational purposes; there are numerous sets of instructions for making batteries using orange or lemon. There is a piece of zinc metal and a piece of copper that inserted into the fruit that was connected by wires. A fruit like lemon or orange is convenient because it provides both the electrolyte that supports the electrodes. The energy comes from the chemical change in the zinc when it dissolves into the acid. The zinc is oxidized inside the lemon, exchanging some of its electrons with the acid in order to reach a lower energy state, and the energy released provides the power. The energy produced in the fruit battery comes from reversing this reaction, recovering some of the energy input during the zinc production. It takes up to 600 oranges to charge an iPhone.
Horse or sea Horse
If a horse is one of the fastest animals on land, a sea horse is the slowest fish that actually moves that swims at speeds of approximately 0.1 miles per hour. These tiny creatures are also the smallest fish, with a measurement of only 2 centimeters in length. Seahorses swim very poorly, rapidly fluttering a dorsal fin and using pectoral fins located behind their eyes to steer. Seahorses have no caudal fin since they are poor swimmers; they are most likely to be found resting with their prehensile tails wound around a stationary object. They have long snouts, which they use to suck up food, and their eyes can move independently of each other like a chameleon.
Earthworm does have a heart
Earthworms do not have a multichambered heart like mammals or reptiles but instead have a series of single-chambered aortic arches, or “pseudohearts”. These pseudohearts pump blood through the circulatory system. Experts say that an average earthworm has five of these circulatory-system structures arranged consecutively, meaning earthworm does have a heart and it has five of it.
Backrub: Google search engine first name
Larry Page and Sergey Brin begin collaborating on a search engine called BackRub on 1996. BackRub operates on Stanford servers for more than a year—eventually taking up too much bandwidth. It was the first name given to the search engine before they change it into google, it’s “a play on the word ‘googol,’ a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. The use of the term reflects their mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web. Can you imagine if they kept the original name? “Let me BackRub that real quick.”
Most dangerous creature in the world
It doesn’t need sharp fangs and claws to be dangerous, just a tiny germs carrier like a house fly can cause deadly diseases. As the house flies do not have teeth, they can only take in food in a liquid form by absorbing, spitting or vomiting on solid food turning it into a liquid form. The fly is mainly attracted to feeding on animal waste feces. As the fly moves from one food source to another, it starts to contract germs on its body and eventually pass on to animals and humans. These germs can be passed on to humans that may cause diseases such as:
• Typhoid fevers
Mr. Potato head is a legend
Remember Mr. Potato Head? Yes? Mr. Potato is an American toy consisting of a plastic model of a potato, which can be decorated with a variety of plastic parts that can attach to the main body. These parts usually include ears, eyes, shoes, a hat, a nose, and a mouth. The toy was invented and developed by George Lerner in 1949, the first manufactured and distributed by Hasbro in 1952. Mr. Potato Head was the first toy advertised on television and has remained in production since its debut.Over the years, the original toy was joined by Mrs. Potato Head. Now Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are the best-known character on Toy Story franchise. Mr. Potato Head is 66 years old and still love by kids. Now who is the legend?
