However, when they do, people especially tend to have curious thoughts in the shower, where they can come to mind-blowing realizations even if they are quite obvious, or they come up with the most random questions that they have to find the answer to or else they won’t be able to sleep at night.

He has created quite a few series, like things people were not meant to see or riddles that only geniuses can solve, but in this list you will find facts that sound fake but are actually true.
