Trivia Tuesday – Fun!

Now , my birthday is coming very soon. And am one of those who loves the day! It will be my day , or so  I will impose on others 😉

And this seems particularly wonderful to know , and it is a fact!

  • When you were born, for a tiny amount of time, you were the youngest person on planet Earth.

Youngest on planet earth ! Yay!

And like every other human ,  I spent about half an hour as a single cell.

  • All life has to begin somewhere, and even the largest humans spent a short part of their lives as a single celled organism when sperm and egg cells first combine. Shortly afterward, the cells begin rapidly dividing and begin forming the components of a tiny embryo

I wish I could celebrate it like Sultan of Brunei. Invite you all who would like this post 😉

  • The Sultan of Brunei hosted the world’s most expensive birthday party to celebrate his 50th year. The cost? A whopping $27.2 million! Three concerts featuring Michael Jackson cost $16 million of the total amounts.

When I asked my husband  , what is he planning to gift me , he offered pebble! Not just any pebble , prettiest , smoothest , beautiful pebble. Just like Male Penguin does

  • Male penguin searches the entire beach to find the perfect pebble to present it to his mate. 

hmm , I will have to be satisfied with a pebble. Am no Nita Ambani , He is no Mukesh Ambani.

By the way , my husband will give me a present , not a gift. Source.

  • Gifts and presents are used interchangeably, but do you know, they not exactly same? According to dictionary.com, when you give something to the recipient at a ceremony, it is a present.

There is another explanation too. The present is something passed between equals or from ‘low to high’. A gift is passed from ‘high to low’ and is valuable than a present. Let me explain. You give your friend a present. You buy a present for the minister. But, God gave you the gift of life. You gift a huge donation to some charity. See the difference?.

A nice Tuesday to you all!

Tuesday Trivia on Wednesday because I missed it on Tuesday!

Tuesday Trivia ..! but today isn’t Tuesday . But I hope in some part of world , it is!

So here is my collection of trivia , bundled quickly ,serving fresh , hot out of internet!

Did you know Jellyfish have no brain.

Big deal! But ..

“Here’s where things get a little strange: They only have one, single opening to eat, reproduce, and dispose of waste. One hole for it all.”

I do not want to imagine humans with just one hole!

Next !

Let’s play a game of “who can stick out tongue! ” But be warn , do not play this with crocs , because crocodile cannot stick out tongue . They can’t , they will swallow you whole for asking them to play “stick out your tongue”

Well , Now that I have put it in writing , it actually doesn’t sound so bad , they are polite creatures , so do not wanna offend anyone by sticking out tongue!

Moving on ,

If you are in France , don’t be surprised to see pink toilet paper

Most toilet paper sold for home use in France is pink.

Yes , now this I can imagine , be wiping my butt with pink toilet paper!

The next one is for adventurous people , those who likes to hike , trek and don’t just push buttons! So, won’t you wish to reach the highest mountain?

The highest mountain known to man is the Olympus Mons, which is located on Mars. It’s peak is 15 miles (25KM) high, making it nearly 3 times higher than Mt Everest

Yeah , Bonus trip to Mars along with mountain trek!

The last one , everyone knows!

“Because of lower gravity, a person who weighs 100kg on earth would only weigh 38kg on the surface of Mars”

How I wish I could live , eat , sleep , drink on Earth , but check my weight on Mars!

Tuesday Trivia missed :(

Oh No! I missed it. For some reason , the date 28th is stuck in my head as my turn for Tuesday trivia ! And today I logged in to see “Why hasn’t anyone published Tuesday trivia yesterday??” and realised my blunder! Am so sorry ..

@piyushavir @feelings161 .. what do I do ? Am so sorry. Shall I post one tomorrow as “Tuesday Trivia on Thursday” or .. pls suggest!

Now , that’s a view.

Beach. I know this isn’t a beach , but please agree it is close to the theme “Beach”.

This is an old fort near the coastline of Maharashtra . Konkan, as the coastline is popularly known, is lined with small fishing villages , temples , forts , beaches (of-course) and resort right next to beach! Yes , you can visit beaches anytime of day or (my favorite)  night. Food  is awesome with plenty of fish.

After visiting one such resort , we took a detour to relatively small , neglected place called Gopal Gadh. It is less popular among tourist visiting parts of Konkan. The road to the fort is very narrow and steep and you got to careful to drive.  The fort is built almost on the cliff , overlooking the vast ocean . Sadly,it is in ruins , walls crumbling and the gate was closed. We were disappointed and almost decided to turn back, when noticed some folks coming from what could be behind the fort ..

And that’s when I discovered this view.  The ocean , beach and the panoramic view of area around , sea water crashing against the rock , the gentle humming of birds and the silence. We spent almost all afternoon there , with no one to disturb. It was my most memorable part of the first visit to Konkan.

Back to picture  , I shared this pic because

  1. How awesome it would be to wake up to this view every morning.
  2. Beach , Ocean ..whatever you call it , looks majestic , and is peaceful from any distance you see.
  3. Next time when visiting beach , try to find a spot really , really at a distance from it. Sit back , relax , get your can of beers , a book or camera or whatever suits you and feast your eyes!.

Now I sit back and wait for more beautiful , actual beach pictures, blogs etc etc.
