gretzkyscores: danielscissorhands: How is Alaska the most eastern state? Because it is just east of Siberia? If you consider that, then doesn't that cancel out it's status as most western state?I think it's because the Aleutian islands span out beyond the 180° longitude line, putting a few of them in the Eastern hemisphere.
Alfonse Gregory: lindalouwho: MythDragon: The heart of a blue whale is so big, a human can swim through the arteries.If by 'swim through' you mean 'get jammed in there with your arms pinned at your side and drown in whale blood.'Unless you are relying on blood pressure to push you through. And what happens when you reach the end of the line?Not to mention, how does the whale feel about you taking a fantasic voyage though it's bloodstream?There is no "end of the line" in a circulatory system ;-)True, but I don't think even Buzzfeed is claiming a human could swim through a whale capillary exchange. Things get pretty tiny at the cellular level.
orangehat: If you think about it most of those things seem like they would be true after thinking about them for a second or two except for folding a piece of paper 42 times since it seems damn near impossible.As for the factoid about turtles breathing out of their asses it explains almost every photo I've ever seen of Mitch McConnell.
fusillade762: We used to have fun with stuff like this in high school. Tell a cute girl "Did you know you can't touch your elbows behind your back" and then watch them try it.
bdub77: I read that as 'Plug your nose and try to cum'.
Makh: So it's basically a rehash of this site. And others before it. But mostly this word for word. http://didyouknowblog.com/
NotARocketScientist: ghostfacekillahrabbit: FTA: 17. The heart of a blue whale is so big, a human can swim through the arteries.Directly beneath this is a picture of a man who is clearly twice the size at least of the arteries on the scale model of a blue whale heart he's posing with.So you think models can only be scaled up? Maybe that is a 1:8 scale, or a 1:4 or 1:16.In other words: YOU CAN'T MAKE ABSOLUTE SIZE COMPARISONS WHEN 1 THING IS SCALED AND ANOTHER IS NOT unless you know the numbers and do the math.
caddisfly: You owe me the last 2.5 hours. Ended up reading about 20 Wikis in the process.
