You ever hear a fact that makes you ever so slightly uncomfortable?
You can't go on looking at life quite the same, though, your world hasn't changed....much.
Here were some of those answers.
The Gays Do Not Approve
Joe Exotic's husbands weren't gay.
As a gay person this really did disturb me. He was so predatory. He met them when they were little more than kids and got them hooked on it for sure. And I was really troubled on that story they touched on briefly about the 12 year old boy who was "teaching him magic" for, hilariously, anti-drug presentations at schools.
The universe could end at any given moment, and we wouldn't even notice.
And by end, I mean wiped out in terms of both space and time. None of this would have ever happened.

Killing For Fun
Dolphins are known to brutally kill baby porpoises for no reason. They don't eat the porpoises, and the porpoises don't antagonize them in anyway.
We Will Never Know
Nobody knows the motives of Stephen Paddock, the guy who did the 2017 Vegas shootings. No political or religious affiliations, no recorded reason for doing it. 59 killed, 869 injured in the attack and nobody knows why.
Genetic testing has shown that head lice and pubic lice have separate origins. Head lice have remained with us since we split off from our chimp-like ancestors. Pubic lice, though, were found to have originally come from gorillas.
But Not On Purpose
Cows on average kill more people per year then bears, snakes, scorpions, alligators, crocodiles, and even sharks.
Deers kill more people per year than Cows!
The Future Freaks Me Out
There is a date on the calendar that is the day you die. Could be Jan. 1, could be July 20, could be September 12, whatever it is, there's a day with your name on it. And mostly likely already there has been a random day where you thought, now what's the date again today? And that was the future date of your inevitable death.
It's For The Oppression
We can put a man on the moon, bend time and space in a mine shaft in Illinois but can't develop and establish a technologically competent, federally universal, state compatible, audit friendly permanent voting system in America.
Community Trash Cans
There's a higher chance to find a dead body under your bed than your trashcan (i'm talking about a trashcan that is meant for all of the people in the building)
That intersex new born babies genitalia are surgically changed to look more of a stereotypical "penis" or "vagina". Often times without the parents consent.
