For a few months, we have been collecting the strangest and most interesting facts we could find and turning them into cool drawings that we post on our Instagram. We have over 150 drawing ideas and counting now!

In our quest for strange facts, we came across all kinds of topics including nature, culture, climate, history, and technology. And we have discovered things we didn’t know about farts, selfies, pizzas, sweat, Ikea, Nutella, and even sex toys.

Here are 69 of our coolest facts! We hope they’ll intrigue you as much as they intrigued us. You can also visit our Instagram for more of these enlightening funny drawings!

It's eight limbs, the type of limbs on an octopus are called arms. Some sources refer to two of them as "legs" as they are known to chose two arms for floor locomotion They are not, scientifically speaking, legs in any way. Octopuses have eight arms.

Otters get pockets by mother nature but women – whose pants really are made by intelligent design – don't get proper pockets in their pants. How is that fair?

This was actually very, very common in Rome too. Many people had no way to cook at home in their cramped living quarters and bought food from street vendors instead.

A teacher of mine mentioned that all (dont know if this is 100% true) preys have their eyes on the side of their faces to spot predators while predators have them facing forward to focus on their prey better. Hence why nearly all preys can see approximately 360 degrees around due to the position of their eyes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, this is the only thing I remember from elementary school.

But we have a high tolerance for hot water! When you turn on a faucet, which one do you turn on? Lefties will turn on hot first.

That's actually quite interesting, I find some of female voices from movies from 40s, 50s unpleasantly high.
