Only animal with chin

Despite the many differences between humans and other creatures, there are also plenty of similarities. Many creatures have hair, a heart, eyes, and a powerful brain just like ours. But there’s one feature we don’t share with any other species: our chins. “If you’re looking across all of the hominids (early forms of humanbeings), which is the family tree after the split with chimpanzees, there aren’t really that many features that we can say are exclusively human,” James Pampush, PhD, co-author of The Enduring Puzzle Of The Human Chin, told NPR. “The one thing that really sticks out is the chin.”

Sultan Kösen

Sultan Kösen (born 10 December 1982 in Mardin) is a Turkish man who holds the Guinness World Record for tallest living male at 251 centimetres in 2009. Kösen’s growth resulted from the condition acromegaly. He describes the advantages of being tall as being able to see a great distance and being able to help his family with domestic tasks like changing light bulbs and hanging curtains. He lists disadvantages as not being able to find clothes for his legs measuring 126 centimetres and for his arms with a sleeve length measuring 97 centimetres or shoes that fit, as well as finding it difficult to fit into an average-sized car.

Tallest man ever

The tallest man ever recorded was American giant Robert Wadlow (1918–1940), who stood 2.71 meters, weighed 199 kg. Wadlow’s size was the result of abnormally high level of human growth hormone (HGH). He was treated with a blood transfusion and surgery, but his condition worsened and he died in his sleep at age 22.

Kangaroo words

A kangaroo word sounds like something that’s spoken in Australia, but it’s actually a word that happens to contain its own synonym, with the letters to spell it in the correct order. According to, examples include the words “chocolate” (which includes the synonym “cocoa”), “masculine” (“male”), “blossom” (“bloom”), “chicken” (“hen”), “rambunctious” (“raucous”), and “deceased” (“dead”).

The word “girl” used to be for both girls and boys

The word “girl” isn’t historically tied to a specific gender. Rather, as professor of linguistics Sally McConnell-Ginet explained to the Huffington Post, it was first used in the 13th century to refer to a young person in general, whether they were male or female. Up until the 16th century, “gay girls” were young women and “knave girls” were young men. (“gay” means or cheerful, “knave” means dishonest )

Bamboo is the fasting growing thing in the world

Along with being strong and flexible, bamboo can be grown as a decorative plant or a practical crop. And bamboo is also a fabulously renewable resource. In fact, it’s the fastest growing plant on the planet, capable of shooting up 88.9 centimeters each day at a rate of 0.037 meters per hour, according to Guinness World Records.


People are increasingly reliant on their devices these days, but for some, the attachment can develop into a serious issue. Those with nomophobia—that stands for “no-mobile-phone phobia”—have a fear of not having their phone on them. They get equally freaked out when their battery dies or when there’s no network available. One 2019 study by U.K. firm YouGov found that 34 percent of men and 52 percent of women currently deal with some form of the condition.

We are born with two fears

While it might seem like you’ve been afraid of snakes and spiders since you were born, that’s not totally true. According to CNN, scientists have found that humans have just two innate fears: the fear of falling and the fear of loud sounds. The rest of your phobias are learned over time. Here is a good scientific reason to get rid of your phobia
