Fun & Interesting Facts!

Shalom Family!

I found some interesting fun facts that we encounter in our everyday life. Take a break from adulting and check out this list that makes you say “hmm, I didn’t know that”. 5 are listed below, you can check the entire list here> 50 Basic Facts About Life

#1 – It’s Easy to Calculate a Tip Without a Calculator

Assuming you want to tip 20 percent for good service, move the decimal point one digit to the left and then double that number. It’s that easy! For example, if a bill is for $35.50, you move the decimal to the left, which gives you $3.55. Double that number, and you’ve got $7.10—a 20 percent tip calculated in seconds.

#2 – Babies Don’t Have Kneecaps

Well, they do. It’s just that they aren’t made of bone. They’re little bits of cartilage that have yet to ossify into bone.

#3 – The Color You See in Pitch Darkness Has a Name

If you close your eyes in a completely dark room. When you open them, the color you see is called eigengrau, which means intrinsic gray. It’s the shade of dark gray people see when there’s no light.

#4 – The Smell After It Rains Has a Name, Too

It’s called petrichor. It comes from the oil plants exude that dries on the ground. When it rains, the oil combines with a byproduct from a type of bacteria to produce the smell.

#5 – You Can Blur Your House on Google Street View

Go to your house, click on it, and then click “report a problem” at the bottom of the screen. You can also do this for your face or your car.

Ok, back to adulting.

May the blessings of Yah be with you!
