Here are a few weird and (somewhat) interesting facts that I was completely unaware of. How many did you know?
Flamingos bend their legs at the ankle, not the knee
They essentially stand on tip-toe. Their knees are closer to the body and are covered in feathers.
Froot Loops loops are all the same flavour
No point in eating around the purple ones - all Froot Loops taste like froot.
Supermarket apples can be a year old
These weird facts might have you changing the way you eat. Those fresh apples aren't all that fresh. They are usually picked between August and November, covered in wax, hot-air dried, and sent into cold storage. After 6 to 12 months, they finally land on your grocery store shelves.
It's impossible to hum while holding your nose
You just tested it, didn't you? Normally, when you hum, the air is able to escape through your nose to create the sound, and of course, it can't do that when you're holding it shut.
The British royal family is named after Windsor
You would think Windsor Castle was named after the House of Windsor, but it's the other way around. The royal family changed its name from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in 1917 so it would sound less german and chose Windsor because they had ties to the English town.
The Statue of Liberty used to be a lighthouse
About a month after the statue's 1886 dedication, it became a working lighthouse for 16 years, with its torch visible from 24 miles away.
