    Oh what’s this thread about? Looks interesting!

    S’up? If you want to waste some time reading interesting facts you’ve come to the right place!

    Ok, here’s the first one:
    Tom Hanks is a bit of a crazed typewriter collector. According to the beloved actor, he’s purchased over 80 of them from around the world since 1978. ‘Why?’ you might ask. ‘For no particular reason,’ he would respond.

    I've heard that before, his main love is being an author and his writing is very good (not my own taste, but a very good author, only recently getting much published)
    His second love in life is collecting typewriters
    And the whole acting thing sits in 3rd place, although presumably it comes in handy to pay the bills

    On the subject of typewriters, you seen typewriter artists? This takes obsession with a medium to new levels

    No thanks Jeff, lol. That was some cool art work man.

    Factoid of the day: Koalas are the sleepiest of all the animals. They sleep for an approximate 22 hours a day! Other animals also enjoy some shuteye, like pythons (18 hours a day), giant armadillo (18 hours a day) and brown bats (19-20 hours a day).

    X-rays were named as such, because the inventor was not sure what they are and chose the common X for an unknown quantity. Today x-rays are powerful medical diagnostic tool which can detect anything from broken bones to tissue changes when used in CAT scans. However, it’s all about the dosage. In the early days the potential negative side-effects were unknown and an X-ray craze developed. Besides an immediate medical application, x-ray machines popped up at carnivals and in shoe stores. People working with them got x-ray burns and Thomas Edison’s assistant died from skin cancer.

    Our eyes can adjust to bright light far faster than they can darkness. Total adaptation to dark can take a few hours in some conditions, while the cones in our eyes can adjust to maximum sensitivity or maximum brightness in five to seven minutes! Quite a difference.

    Here is a feel-good fact: every year, hundreds of new trees grow because of squirrels forgetting where they buried their nuts.



    Honey is the only food that will never go off. It can last up to 3000 years. It also has antibacterial properties which can help with a number of diseases!

    The phrase ‘moving at a snail’s pace’ can be found in Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’, whilst ‘busy as a bee’ goes all the way back to Chaucer’s ‘Canterbury Tales’ in 1386.

    Dreaming in black and white
    12% of people dream in black and white. What’s weirder is that human beings used to sleep and dream in black and white even more before color tv (~15%). The average person still dreams in color, but it’s interesting to see how the human brain is susceptible to media.

    Depending on your beats per minute, your heart beats about 100,000 times a day. That means it sends 2,000 gallons of blood through the body.

    If you’re a fan of ranch dressing, you should know that some brands contain titanium dioxide which is used to make paper white. This same ingredient is in sunscreen.

    JFK, probably the coolest President of all time, posed as Clark Kent in a Superman comic! In the story, he knows Superman's real identity, and to help him out pretends to be Clark Kent. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the President, wut.

    Sharks and rays are the only animals known to man that don't get cancer. Scientists believe this has something to do with the fact that they don't have bones, but cartilage.
