I don't know about you Pandas, but I really love fun facts. However, if I had to choose my favorite category, it would probably be especially weird facts.

Sometimes I can’t believe that these things exist: for example, there's a fact that says that a dog’s poop aligns with the Earth’s magnetic field. I know this is random, but I'm giving this one as an example.

So, Pandas, please tell me the craziest fact you know!

Pineapples contain the enzyme bromelain which breaks down and dissolves meat protiens, which is why your lips and tongue tingle when you eat them.

The mayor of the Alaskan town, Talkeetna, is called Stubbs and has been mayor of the town since July 1997. Stubbs is a cat. There is an uninhabited island in the Bahamas known as Pig Beach, which is populated entirely by swimming pigs. Catnip is ten-times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET, the main substance used in insect repellents. If eaten in one meal, 30 to 90 grams of polar bear liver is enough to kill a human being.

The reason the taste of artificial banana flavoring and artificial banana flavored products doesn’t taste like bananas is because it is based on a type of banana that was wiped out by a plague in the 1950’s

The language spoken by Minions includes words from French, English, Spanish, Hindi, and Korean but mainly English and Spanish so yes they are really speaking gibberish even if you translate them to hooman.

Spiked and studded dog-collars derive from the days of the Ancient Greeks, who would give their sheep-dogs sharply spiked collars to protect their necks from wolves whilst they watched over a Sheppard’s flock at night.- Makes sense! Artist Salvador Dalí would often get out of paying for drinks and meals by drawing on the checks, making them priceless works of art and therefore un-cashable.- Lucky artist right?

For this he was sentenced to 17 years in a federal prison ordered to pay $400 million in recompense.

I believe that tomato ketchup was marketed as a medicine. On a side note, the reason it is called, "tomato ketchup" is because there used to be carrot ketchup, beet ketchup and various other vegetable ketchup.

two favorite sciencey facts.

1) in an infinite universe everywhere is the center. which means that when someone says "you think your the center of the universe" they are right you are....and so are they.

2) that magenta does not have a wavelength in the light spectrum/rainbow. it actually combines the highest and lowest of the observable wavelengths. yet it seen as one color (combo of violet and red)

so, a real color that "doesn't exist" and finding the center of the universe is everyone those are my favorites

I know lots of crazy facts about ocean stuff, but I'll just give y'all a few. 1) The Mariana Trench actually can support a small amount of life, and one of these creatures is the Hadal Snailfish. 2) The blob fish is just a normal fish in the Abyssal Zone, the famous picture shows what it looks like dead, mangled, and out of its habitat. It's actually called the Blob Sculpin. 3) Queen Conch snails have a giant toenail-like thing on their "foot" that they use to scrape the ground and look for food. 4) The Hammerhead Shark looks like that so it can pivot its head super fast. 5) The Dumbo Octopus exists, it's the only octopus that doesn't have an ink sac, beak, or radula. It's also my profile picture. 6) SIPHONOPHORES. Those things are WEIRD, man..!

In the early 1900’s, Lobster was considered the “cockroach of the ocean” and was synonymous with the poor – often eaten regularly by the homeless, slaves and prisoners. It wasn’t until after World War II that lobster became considered a delicacy and a food associated with the aristocratic classes.

1. The reason why people say "bless you" after you sneeze goes back to the early 1800's and the purpose has been forgotten. Back then, people believed that when you sneeze, you're exorcising a small demon or imp from your body, therefore they'd say bless you.

One of my all time favorites:

"Watt." "What?" "Watt!" A player has been sent off after a referee mistook his name for dissent.

Referee Dean Hulme asked Sanchez Watt, who was playing for Hemel Hempstead Town, for his name as he was about to be booked in a National League South game against East Thurrock United.

The 27-year-old repeatedly replied: "Watt" but Hulme believed he was saying "what?" and sent him off for dissent.
