Tuesday Trivia

Hello Fellow Bloggers!

I am back after a long time with some interesting facts to amaze you!!

  • Have you ever felt lonely? You shouldn’t any more…

    The loneliest creature on Earth, is a whale who has been calling out for a mate for over two decades. The creature has been singing at a frequency not used by any other whales in the North Pacific Ocean for the last 20 years. Poor thing!

  • Wondered how every kid in the vicinity is in possession of an IPad or an IPhone? Check this out!

In 2011, a 17 year old Chinese teenager, Xiao Zheng, made headlines when he   purchased an iPad and an iPhone.

Wondering, what’s so funny about it?

           Hold your breath!

           In order to finance it, he sold one of his kidneys for 20,000 yuan or just a bit over £1,900 or about $3000.

God! save our next generation kids from tech fever!

  • Now, this one is quite interesting (and raises a few questions in my mind too!) 

All clownfish are born male. If the female of a group dies, the dominant male will then begin to gain weight and become the female of the group. After “he” becomes a “she”, she selects a breeding partner from the available males, which is almost always the largest male available.

Now, don’t ask me how was first female clownfish born 😉

  • Caution! Please check manufacturing date  of the chewing gum before you pop it in your mouth next time!

The world’s oldest piece of chewing gum is over 9,000 years old! Recently archaeologists found three wads of 9000-year-old chewed birch resin on the Swedish island of Orust!

  •  Love animals? You certainly have one more reason here!

In 1923, jockey Frank Hayes won a race at Belmont Park in New York despite being dead! He suffered a heart attack mid-race, but his body stayed in the saddle until his horse crossed the line for a 20–1 outsider victory. In fact, it is the only time in sports history when a competition was won by a dead man. What a loyal animal!

  • How long you think you can dance?

The Dance Fever of 1518 was a month-long plague of inexplicable dancing in Strasbourg, in which hundreds of people danced for more than a month for no apparent reason! Several of them danced themselves to death. Finally they were loaded aboard wagons and taken to a healing shrine!
