So you’re at a gathering of people. What can you say when the conversation starts turning into awkward pauses? How about to give one of the little-known facts a try instead? For example, few people know that in just 30 minutes, our bodies can produce enough combined heat to boil ½ a gallon of water. Tell them about it!

This one is also really cool. You ever wondered why a goat’s pupils look so weird? In fact, the horizontal rectangular shape gives them wider peripheral vision so that they can react faster to approaching danger. In fact, they have a 320° field of vision – you and I only have 120°! Isn’t it amazing? Check out these facts, and you’ll understand that there are still many things in the world that can surprise us! 🤓
