Sorry, I am a little late with my post! But better late than never, right? Well, without wasting any more time, let’s dive in…

Did You Know?

Scotland’s national animal is the Unicorn! On a similar note, North Korea’s national animal is the Chollima (a Mythical Winged Horse), while Dodo’s the national bird of Mauritius.

Did You Know?

You might know that strawberry is not a berry. But did you know that banana is a berry? So are pomegranate, tomatoes and kiwis.

Did you know?

The brain is 73% water. It takes only 2% dehydration to affect your attention, memory and other cognitive skills. So to keep that brain functioning… drink up (well, water)!

Did You Know?

Venus has the longest day of any planet in our solar system. It completes one rotation every 243 Earth days. Its day lasts longer than its orbit. It orbits the Sun every 224.65 Earth days, so a day is nearly 20 Earth days longer than its year.

Did you know?

Evolution is believed to help us grow bigger, better and smarter. But apparently, this is a myth! Over the past 10,000 – 20,000 years, the size of the average human brain has shrunk by the size of a tennis ball (scary, right?). Scientists attribute this to our “domestication”, lack of a balanced meal and, would you like to guess? Yes, you got it right – to the lack of physical activity. Born to be wild, anyone?

That’s all for this trivia! Which fact did you find most interesting?

Would you believe…? (Guest Post by Jackie)

Dear Friends,

We have reason to believe that Anandhotep and Jadoo may have kidnapped @ananyabha. Why else would she miss her nomination for the Trivia Tuesday?! She is usually quite punctual with her features. We are still trying to figure out the cause of her disappearance. We have already contacted the Intergalactic Department of Unexplained and Ill-timed Mysterious Disappearances to help track our friend. In the meanwhile, enjoy this hilarious real-life trivia by Jackie. 🙂 (Thanks for this @mkjackie99)
