Unbelievable but true

Facts

1. A single sneeze travels 100 miles per hour and shoots 100,000 germs into the air.


2. You’re born with just 1 pint of blood, but by the time you’re an adult you have 4 to 5 quarts.


3. The human body contains enough fat to make seven bars of soap.


4. Humans are capable of echolocation, just like a bat or a whale.


5. It’s impossible to hum while holding your nose. Go ahead, try it!


6. All humans have an automatic dive reflex. When your face is submerged in cold water or when you hold your breath, your heart slows and your blood vessels narrow to conserve oxygen.


7. Newborn babies can’t drown because their windpipes close in response to being submerged. However, that reflex disappears at six months (but we do NOT recommend testing this odd fact at home).


8. Your stomach acid is strong enough to dissolve metal.


9. The silhouette on the NBA Logo is of Hall of Fame Los Angeles Laker Jerry West.


10. The average lifespan of an MLB baseball is just 7 pitches.


11. Golf is the only sport to have been played on the moon. In 1971, Alan Shepard hit two golf balls on the lunar surface with a makeshift 6-iron.


12. The term “winning something hands down” came from horse racing. A jockey who is far enough ahead can slacken the reins and keep his hands down.


13. Wild dolphins call each other by name.
