  • You Can Hear The Difference Between Hot And Cold Water on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#11) You Can Hear The Difference Between Hot And Cold Water

    Various experiments over the past decade or so have revealed that people can quite easily tell the difference between hot and cold water using just their hearing. The sound given off by pouring water is distinct enough that the vast majority of individuals are able to distinguish between them with almost 100% accuracy. The reason is that colder water is more viscous, which effectively makes it thicker and gives it a different sound than hot water, which is less “sticky” and so produces a higher frequency noise.

  • Half Of The Water On Earth Is Older Than The Sun on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#4) Half Of The Water On Earth Is Older Than The Sun

    Everyone knows that the Sun was around a long time before the Earth. In fact, the Sun’s life first began some 4.6 billion years ago. While that is certainly old, it turns out that as much as half of the water on our home planet may be even older than that. According to research carried out by astrophysicists, much of the water on Earth could have come from interstellar gas that froze when the solar system was first formed. It was then able to travel through space before crashing into the rocky planet humans call home.

  • There Are More Trees On Earth Than Stars In The Milky Way on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#2) There Are More Trees On Earth Than Stars In The Milky Way

    The sheer scale of the universe that encompasses the Earth often makes it seem like space must be infinite, with an uncountable number of stars surrounding it in every direction. Yet, NASA scientists have come up with very good estimates for the number of stars in the Milky Way galaxy. This number stands at around 400 billion. While that is certainly a lot, it is dwarfed by the number of trees that are on the planet’s surface. Recent studies have concluded that there are around 3 trillion trees on Earth, almost 10 times the amount of stars in the galaxy.

  • The Surveyors Who First Measured Mount Everest Gave The Wrong Figure On Purpose on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#8) The Surveyors Who First Measured Mount Everest Gave The Wrong Figure On Purpose

    Measuring the exact height of Mount Everest was a difficult job, and the first official figure came in 1856, when the Great Trigonometric Survey was carried out by Sir Andrew Waugh. When the measurement was first calculated, the height was revealed to be exactly 29,000 feet. Waugh was so worried that this number would be considered a guess or a rounding-off of the actual height that he decided to add an extra two feet to the total to create a more believable figure. Bizarrely, this actually resulted in a more accurate total as most officials now consider the official height to be 29,029 feet.

  • Wyoming Only Has Two Escalators In The Entire State on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#7) Wyoming Only Has Two Escalators In The Entire State

    Escalators are a common sight around the world. Whether you are in a mall, a department store, or an airport, it is difficult to find a large building without a set of escalators for people to travel between different floors. That isn’t the case in the US state of Wyoming. There are only two sets of escalators in the entire state, both of them located in banks in the town of Casper. Local government officials believe that the lack of escalators comes from the fact that many of the buildings in Wyoming are older and not suitable whilst stairs and elevators are cheaper to install and maintain.

  • The Universe Is Beige on Random Facts That Sound Fake, But Are 100% True

    (#3) The Universe Is Beige

    Looking out at the night sky, you would be forgiven for thinking that the universe is black. Apart from the pinpoint light given off from stars, space appears to be a vast collection of nothingness. That hasn't stopped researchers from trying to discover what the real color of the universe is. Surprisingly, it isn’t black, but a sort of beige. By analyzing the cosmic light given off by hundreds of thousands of galaxies and billions of stars, they were able to see what the spectrum would be interpreted as in the human eye.
