Section that stood out at me: “Amazing facts that will blow your mind Part 1”.
1. Cashews grow on apples
2. Mushrooms are more closely related to animals than to plants (this actually was not that surprising)
3. trees grow out of the air, not the ground
4. there is enough water in Lake Superior to cover all of North and South America with 1 foot of water.
5. we have more bacteria cells in our bodies than somatic cells
6. one percent of world’s population is drunk at any given moment.
7. we spend roughly six years of our lives dreaming
8. 11 days (264 hours) is the longest recorded time period someone has gone without sleep
