The mind retains all the strangest things.

How many times have you found yourself in awe of your own or someone else's random knowledge?

Sometimes the information can be unnerving.

I feel like there are things not to know.

But, we're all sponges, so soak away.


A deleted Redditor asked:

"What is that one fact you know that always makes people respond 'And why the f**k do YOU know that?"

The things people know can freak me out.

YUCK!

Sloth Scratching GIFGiphy

"At a single time, the sloths body mass can be comprised of one third feces. It takes several hours for the sloth to excrete its bowels completely."

6 Feet Under

"Don't ever bury a dead body in an area without any vegetation. The high nitrogen content in our bodies helps plants to grow, and there will be a weird grassy patch at the top of the burial site, and anyone would be able to spot it."

REDDIT

"Also (learned this online, not from experience or necessity, I promise you) if you need to bury a dead body, bury it vertically (or in bits) and leave about 4-5 feet extra space above it. Bury a dead animal on top of it, better if it's one that could have been a pet. If anyone thinks there is foul play, they will find the animal and shrug it off."

"Or just like, don't murder people."

"survivable"

"Most victims in 'survivable' plane crashes died of jet fuel burning and choking them. Smoke hoods could save hundreds of lives if installed on airplanes, likely many more than flotation devices since ditching is incredibly rare. BONUS: backwards facing seats would make a plane crash much easier to survive thanks to the g forces pressing you against the seat instead."

Sell?

No Way Wtf GIF by HarlemGiphy

"Back in the day, poor families would collect their urine so they could sell it to tanners. Hence, 'p**s poor.'"

"If you were poorer than that, well, you didn’t even have a pot to p**s in."

What in the world? I can't...

Bad Poop

Greetings Hello GIFGiphy

"Bears eat a ton of grass and twigs and stuff before the hibernate to constipate themselves and pretty much prevent waking up mid winter to s**t. However, when they finally do wake up in the spring, their first s**t is a mean one."

Learn a Trade

"A bear fought in the polish army in WWII, the cub was discovered by polish prisoners in the mountains of Iran. They taught him how to puff and swallow cigarettes. Even taught him how to learn how to turn on communal showers, pick up recruits, and carried empty ammunition crates on the front lines."

A Bad Mix

"Spinal fluid tastes like a mixture of bananas and a 9 volt battery. And I don't want to talk about it."

Choc-roaches

"If you're allergic to chocolate you're usually allergic to cockroaches."

In a bean field...

"Pythagoras from the pythagorean theorem ran a cult, and another group came to come and murder him by locking him inside his house and setting it on fire. But instead he had his followers make a human ladder to escape the fire, but then abandoned them and they all died. He was murdered later that night being chased by the group in a bean field."

"If you feed a human body to pigs, they will eat just about all of it except the teeth. Several murderers in rural areas have used this fact to their advantage."

Now this is a lot of crazy info, but good to know.

"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."

An aged old proverb reflecting on when people perform what they think are well-meaning, helpful acts, but in reality, only worsen a bad situation.

A day seldom goes by when people won't notice an example of this, either on the news, in the book they're reading, or simply walking down the street.

This could be anything from someone making promises to help out, but never delivering on them, to saving money for a less expensive cleaner, which turns out to radiate toxic fumes, resulting in the building being closed for an indefinite length of time.

Ideas which might seem good in theory, but are impractical, illogical, or even harmful, in practice.

Unless you grew up with the most doting parents on the planet, there's probably a toy or two that you really wanted as a kid, but never received.

Whether it was too expensive for your parents to afford, or something like a noisy toy that was going to be way too annoying for your parents, there are probably some toys that you really missed out on as a child.

When it comes to fast food places, no two places are the same. Wendy's spicy chicken nuggets are far superior to those from McDonald's, while no one does milkshakes quite like Dairy Queen.

I have always preferred burgers from In-N-Out, but my brother will always go for Five Guys.

There will always be debates when it comes to which establishment does fast food the best.

The biggest debate surrounds the ultimate side dish: french fries.

No one can ever seem to agree on which fast food chain has the best french fries, but that doesn't stop the debate. Redditors are engaged in that very debate as we speak!

People Dispel Common 'Facts' That Are Total BS

Some people will just believe anything.

And if you call a statement a fact long enough, many people take it as gospel.

Some facts are absolute truths, others can be malleable.

Science changes.

History evolves.

Lies are exposed.

And research is an actual art form.
