Top 10 Truths You Can’t Believe That Look Like Lies (But They Actually Aren’t)

There is sometimes information that we believe to be false because it seems so impossible or stupid, so we assume that it’s bullshit when overall we have no expertise on the subject. It’s a vast and varied subject and we offer you to see some examples of it that you are not going to believe for a second, and yet, it’s true damn it, stop questioning everything.

1. If we put all of humanity in Lake Geneva, its level would only rise by 15 centimeters

Yeah, that sounds like some big bullshit but it’s the real truth. When this study was conducted, the weight of humanity was estimated at 287 million tons and all this would not raise the water level of the lake by more than 15 centimeters. Big pool party with all humanity in June, follow the organization on the networks.

2. There are probably fewer than fifty human survivors of rabies

Rabies is the infectious disease with the highest mortality rate since it is between 99.9% and 100%. Very few people have survived this disease because when the symptoms appear it is already too late. Fortunately there is the vaccine and that’s good, well done Pastor.

3. About a sixth of the languages ​​spoken in the world are only used in New Guinea

There are nearly 839 languages ​​spoken in the country, which is huge and inflates the statistics a little. It must be quite complicated to dialogue in the country if you have to find someone who speaks the same language as you, but hey, it’s another organization.

4. Between the time it was discovered and the time it was stopped being considered a planet, Pluto had only done one-third of its turn around the sun

We call it a quick value judgment, as soon as we discover it, we call it a planet and then we start body-shaming it before it has even finished its day’s work. Sad.

5. The Colombian tarantula can have a pet frog

This is not a fable by La Fontaine, but a reality. This tarantula often hangs out with this species of frog and keeps it as a pet. On the one hand the frog eats the small critters that hang around the eggs of the spider but in addition it can take advantage of the moist territory of the latter. An exchange of good practices, more animals that are friends.

6. If we took one billion people away from China and India, they would still be the two most populous countries in the world.

Yes because in fact there is a stupid thing, it is that these two countries represent respectively 18.25% and 18.04% of the world’s population in 2021, i.e. more than a third of the population of all the planet.

7. Oxford University is older than the Aztec population

The beginning of the Aztec era is estimated at 1200 AD and the University of Oxford was founded in 1096 AD. Yeah, that pissed me off too.

8. A man survived the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki

This is Tsutomo Yamaguchi, on a business trip to Hiroshima when the bomb hit. He survived and returned home to Nagasaki, and that’s when the second bomb fell, and he survived again.

9. A flash of lightning can reach five times the temperature of the sun.

The temperature of the sun is estimated at 10,000 degrees farenheit and lightning strikes have been measured to reach 50,000 degrees farenheit. It seems unlikely but it’s the truth, however people who survive lightning don’t have the ability to survive on the sun (or five suns, I checked). Another thing we don’t know about thunderstorms.

10. There is enough water in Lake Superior to cover North and South America with 30 centimeters of water

This North American lake would have enough water to cover the entire territory, and if you wanted to drink it at 3.5 liters a day it would take you more than 16 trillion years (billions of billions of years).
