Lets play the Fact Game


#1

Let’s play a fact game! Here’s how it goes:
One person woukd say a fact, and the next person would say one relating somehow to the first one. Like this:
Person 1: Sideromophobia is the fear of trains.
Person 2: The longest railway ever built was planned by Henry Flagler.
Person 3: Henry Flagler’s house in Florida is a museum.
Etcetera etcetera. I’ll start.

The space above your nose in between your eyebrows is called the glabella.


#2

There are at least 14 different nose types found in humans


#3

The human nose can remember up to 50,000 different scents.


#4

Inside the nose there are alot of nerve cells to detect odor


#5

The human nose starts to run in order to cleanse itself of harmful bacteria.


#6

If all the bacteria were lined up end to end, they would stretch some 10 billion light-years—literally from here to the visible edge of the universe.


#7

When two people kiss they exchange between 10 million and 1 billion bacteria.


#8

2/3 of the people lean to the right when they kiss.


#9

The study of kissing is called philematology and those who study kissing are called osculologists.


#10

Philematology was first a western practice before it spread around the world.


#11

The first country western movie ever made was called The Great Train Robbery, it was twelve minutes long, may have been inspired by a train robbery committed by Butch Cassidy, and it featured the first big western star “Bronco” Billy Anderson who played three different roles in the film and went on to star in over 400 western serials.


#12

In the early 20th century, Butch Cassidy fled to South America.


#13

when you buy and eat half a chicken, you’re secretly sharing a meal with someone!


#14

Chickens have full-color vision


#15

Shark corneas are so similar to humans’ that they have been successfully used for human corneal transplants.


#16

Some sharks are oviparous, and some are viviparous.


#17

Elephants have the longest gestation period of all mammals, roughly 95 weeks on average, opossums have the shortest with an average of 12-13 days per pregnancy.


#18

Colour-blindness is actually not being able to differentiate between red and green. (some people think colour-blindness is not being able to see any colours, just black and white)


#20

Women are able to see the difference between more colors than men.


#21

Recent studies have shown that infants as young as 2 weeks of age can already distinguish the color red. Probably because red has the longest wavelength among colors making it the easiest color to process by the developing receptors and nerves in the baby’s eyes.
