No, I did not know …

Isn’t it amazing how you get blogging ideas in the most random places? For me, it was while doing the laundry today (Don’t worry, I won’t talk you through thaaaat!). I was using the laundry kiosk service in our building (by the name of My Box if you really must know) which always gives out the most random ‘Did you know’ facts while you wait for the process to complete. It actually makes me look forward to doing the laundry now to be honest .. Lol!

I’m so fascinated by some of them, I google it only to end up discovering even more random facts on various websites. Some of them are truly mind-boggling!

Here are some of the one’s I read recently which left me wondering:

An apple, onion and potato taste the same if you eat them with your nose plugged. 

Might just have an onion for breakfast tomorrow then as am out of apples .. 

You can’t snore and dream at the same time.

Errrr, I’d like to believe I do not snore at all … 

Banging your head against the wall uses up to 150 calories per hour.

Right, next time I eat a triple chocolate cookie then … 

If you leave everything to the last minute, it will only take a minute.

Wait … what??? It definitely took me more than a minute to register this one …

 Our eyes stay the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.

That explains why I see nothing but eyes in my baby pics …

 You are 1% taller in the morning than in the evening. 

I might just start going to bed early then to get that one inch back quicker … 

The average person laughs 10 times a day. 

Oops, that makes me well below average then … wonderful! 

A crocodile can’t poke its tongue out. 

What a shame! That would have made a real cute sight … 

And last but not the least, the one that gets to me the most …..

A cockroach can live for a week without its head before it starves to death.

*Shudders* … I really did not need to know that! Don’t ask me why I told you either …

Oh, and here’s one more:

You can’t read this post and not comment!
Ok, that was a complete lame invention of my own. Could not resist .. Haha!

Got anymore fun/weird facts that you discovered lately? Share away …

Until the next post, Let’s keep it Strictly Lighthearted!

  1. “Banging your head against the wall uses up to 150 calories per hour.”

    So, if I eat a whole cake, I’d probably have to repeatedly whack my head into the wall for 12 hours straight to burn it off? 😝

  2. I once asked my daughter try a cooked onion with her eyes shut ( she was being difficult about eating onions, which is a bit hard on a Sicilian Mama who). I told her that she was about to eat something quite sweet and asked her to guess what it was. She said ‘lovely, cooked apple’! 🙂

  3. Hahaha I love these little facts, they always make my day xD and it’s true, last-minute rushes are always the most efficient way of getting stuff done, but they might not be done very well 😉
