Did you know that every 2 to 10 seconds our ability to see completely shuts down for micro seconds, but we don't notice it because it's so fast and we blink?

Now carry on with your day with this new information :shock:

What random fact do you have to share with us?

The shortest length of time perceivable by human beings is 10 microseconds, that is, one hundredth of a second.
. . . all times I have enjoyed
Greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those
That loved me, and alone.

When hippos are upset, their sweat turns red.
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

And their sweat acts as a sunscreen as well!

Although hippos can hold their breath for approximately seven minutes, most adult hippos resurface every three to five minutes to breathe. This is an automatic process – even sleeping hippo surface to breathe without waking.

Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

A jiffy is an actual unit of time (about 33.3564 picoseconds)

Similar to fingerprints, everyone also has a unique tongue print!

A man called Gregory Nemitz claimed ownership of an asteroid months before NASA landed a probe in it. He then proceeded to issue NASA a US$ 20 parking ticket for landing there

The speech center of your brain momentarily shuts down while your talking and then turns on again. You can't talk and think about talking at the same time.

There are 10 times as many bacterial cells than human cells if you break down all the cells of a human body.
