17 FÁRÁNLEGAR staðreyndir sem þú trúir varla en eru sannar! – MYNDIR


Þessar 17 staðreyndir hljóma fáránlega – en ótrúlegt en satt þá eru þær nú samt sannar:

1. You are 10 times more likely to get bit by a New Yorker than a shark.

2. A McDonald’s Caesar salad has more calories, salt, and fatthan a Double Big Mac.

4. Some dictionary writers put fake words in dictionaries so they know if someone plagiarizes.

You can find the word "esquivalience" in the New Oxford American Dictionary, but it isn't real.

5. A scientist researching in Antarctica was able to match with someone on Tinder in their area.

6. To save money on taxes, most Converse have a layer of felt on them to classify the shoes as slippers.

Gazetc's Jeff Steck says the categorization change from "sneaker" to "slipper" can lower the tariff from 37.5% to 3%.

7. Naming hurricanes began with Australian meteorologist Clement Wragge, who sometimes named the storms after politicians he didn’t like.

He also named storms after the Greek alphabet and characters in Greek mythology.

8. There is a town in North Carolina named Whynot.

There was a long debate in the 18th century about what to call the town until someone said, "Why not name it Why Not and then we can go home.” The name stuck.

9. In Elizabethan England, „nothing“ and „occupy“ were both considered bad words.

William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing was a double entendre.

10. A high school math experiment found that Double Stuf Oreos aren’t actually double the stuffing.

However, Nabisco stated that the recipe for Double Stuf does have double the stuffing of the regular Oreo, so I don't know who to believe.

11. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was renamed It’s Raining Falafel in Israel.

You can see the poster on the right sans spaghetti.

12. Inflatable tube men are banned in Houston.

According to the ban supporters, the tube men are tacky and distracting.

13. Blobfish look like regular fish underwater, but become ugly when we bring them to the surface.

Because they live at depths 2,000-4,000 feet underwater, their body is mostly held together by water pressure. When they're brought to the surface, that pressure goes away and they turn into the world's ugliest animal.

14. Mick Jagger’s youngest son is younger than his great-granddaughter, Ezra.

His baby with ballerina Melanie Hamrick was born in 2016 while his great-granddaughter was born two years prior. That means Ezra is older than her great uncle!

15. Hugh Jackman didn’t know that wolverines were real when researching his role of Wolverine.

16. Some trauma can cause pathological joking, called Witzelsucht (addiction to wisecracking).

One of the first cases of Witzelsucht was in 1929. A neurosurgeon operated on a conscious man's brain tumor, but when manipulated, the tumor made the patient whip into a flurry of puns.

17. Abraham Lincoln used to be a wrestler.

He's actually in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.
