No matter how many all-nighters you pull devouring volume after volume of dust-laden encyclopedias, it will never be enough. Because learning is a process, and there’s no end visible on the horizon.

But most of us are just fine with one or two "did you know that?" facts always ready to be served at a dinner table. Except they get old fast and nobody wants to listen to another “banana is a berry,” like, ever.

Luckily, one Reddit user who goes by u/RyanBlitzpatrick did everyone a favor and asked people on r/AskReddit “What's a fact that just blows your mind?” 3.6K upvotes and 3.5K comments later, the results are in and you’d better get your notebook ready, 'cause these are some of the hand-picked knowledge bites that may honestly surprise you.

Interesting-Facts-Mind-Blow 2006, which doesn’t feel THAT long ago, saw the death of two colossally old tortoises. The first, Harriet, was reportedly collected by Charles Darwin when he visited the Galápagos on the HMS Beagle. She belonged to Steve Irwin at the time of her death. Charles Darwin and Steve Irwin shared a “pet.” Estimated to have lived 176 years.

The second, Adwaita, was born before the United States declared its independence from England. Think of it: just 14 years ago, there was a land creature alive that was older than our country. Just incredible.

I wish it was as easy to remember these facts as it was to scroll through. In reality, we do learn things every day, but not much of that information sticks with us.

But memory is a very complex function. It turns out, much of it is generated not only through recollection, but also through the emotions that are attached to it. Shahram Heshmat, a professor emeritus at the University of Illinois at Springfield, believes that “emotion affects all the phases of memory formation.”

For example, “Attention guides our focus to select what’s most relevant for our lives and is normally associated with novelty.” And nothing focuses the mind more than a surprise which escalates emotional intensity.

Another interesting thing which escalates long-term memory is not the recollection of a fact itself, but rather the so-called mood memory. Prof. Heshmat explains that “Our current emotional state facilitates recall of experiences that had a similar emotional tone.”

For example, being in a bad mood primes us to think of and remember unpleasant moments.Having said that, most of the things we forget easily have to do with our inability to put them in our long-term memory.

Meanwhile, forcing yourself to memorize things is likely not to be very effective because our brains are not capable of making sense of dense information quickly and forming strong associations.

It's better to use super simple tricks such as visualization (imagine what you are trying to remember), repetition (boring but effective), and learning the opposite things (create associations in your head).

And never underestimate the power of understanding that which you’re learning, because you'll never be able to remember something you can’t explain yourself.

The Fermi Paradox.

With the number of potentially habitable Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone, it’s very strange that we haven’t detected alien signals of any kind so far.

There’s lots of theories as to why that is, but my favorite is called the great silenceDark Forest (which sounds way cooler). Basically everyone else out there is being quiet and not transmitting because they know of some danger that we are unaware of, and they don’t want it to find them. Gives me chills.

Edit: It’s interesting that most of the replies here, joking or serious, correspond to legitimate theories on the Fermi Paradox.

That's the rather interesting part of modern digital broadcasting. Without a decoding algorithm, digital broadcasts just look like noise. Our signals certainly could be making it to another form of life, but without a proper decoding algorithm, the 1s and 0s just appear to be background noise. The Drake Equation includes variables for (among other things) the length of time any extra-terrestrial society would be actively using or listening for analog signals.

If you hold evolution true, then the likelihood that life exists at all is insane. Just the mechanics of our planet alone are crucial to our development as a specie. The planet-wide disasters and the climate changes over the course of our evolution have led and shaped our evolution in drastic ways that could have easily veered another way just as easily. The chances of it happening again elsewhere, again, insane. The chances those lifeforms are higher lifeforms capable of recognizing each other as lifeforms are like the end digits to pi.

Maybe other planets are aware of us, and they are the UFO s that people are seeing. They periodically come and check on us and abduct people just to see where we are evolutionary wise, and when they still see that we aren't evolved they keep going and check back later. Or maybe, we were technologically evolved once, something happened like an meteorite hitting the Earth, and that sent us back to square one. Now we are in the process of evolving once more, and trying to regain our technology that we lost.

"it’s very strange that we haven’t detected alien signals of any kind so far" isn't actually true.

We are a weird accident here on Earth, there's no other species that uses technology. Not one in 3 billion years since life exists, and even us got out of caves 10000 years ago, while the ability to communicate at a distance wasn't there until the 1800s with the invention of the telegraph... The number of advanced civilisations could be very small and probably so far away that communication is either impractical or impossible.
