  1. The United States hasn’t minted any new Purple Heart medals since World War II. They’ve been using the stockpile that was prepared in anticipation of a ground invasion of Japan.

  2. The Greenland shark can grow over 500 years old. That means some Greenland sharks alive today were around back when Hernando Cortez conquered the Aztecs

  3. The Olympic flag’s colors are always red, black, blue, green, and yellow rings on a field of white.

    This is because at least one of those colors appears on the flag of every nation on the planet.

  4. When you brush your teeth your cleaning or bones
    Elephants don’t find you cute like puppies
    There is no such thing as alpha wolves
    You can make a sword out of human blood as blood has iron
    If you where to hunt all blue whales in the ocean it would feed us for about a month

  5. That in the United States, they held an election and a racist, homophobic, cheater and reality show host who proudly never paid taxes won.
    Then when he lost the next election, he mounted a bloody, violent insurrection at the Capitol to illegally stay in power.
    Now, he is thinking of running again and there are dumbass people who are supporting him!
    Let that sink in!

  6. In about 20 years we went from basic pixels on a screen a small sprites to photo realistic virtual reality environments that we can interact with in real time with 10-point tracking and network capabilities allowing us to do the same thing with tons of people from all over the world instantaneously

    I don’t even need some sort of NASA supercomputer to do this. Even just a mid-range gaming computer will do the trick

  7. No less than a dozen doctors stuck their fingers inside President Garfield’s gunshot wound. Even worse, the doctor that treated Garfield, Doctor Willard Bliss, thought “rectal feeding” was the best way to go. Had they just left the bullet alone, Garfield would’ve probably lived.

    There was a surgery with a 300% mortality rate: Robert Liston amputated an assistant’s fingers and a spectator died of shock, while the patient and assistant died of sepsis.

    You’re more likely to die on the way to the airport than on the plane.

    Transistors, the very basis of all electronics, are 1/100,000 the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen.

    Over 8,000 people died in the 1900 Galveston hurricane because of American hubris. We believed hurricanes couldn’t move North in the Gulf. Additionally, we owned Cuba at this time and actually silenced all Cuban meteorologists who not only predicted the incoming hurricane that hit Cuba, silenced reports of the hurricane actually hitting Cuba, and silenced predictions of the hurricane moving north. All because such reports excessively “excited the natives.” We just couldn’t admit that we were wrong.

  8. “Fun fact” – no one actually cares about you.

    Oh, you think your parents do. But that’s just genetics. Your partner! Lol, they might leave you tomorrow.

    You’ll die alone, probably screaming in a hospital bed, maybe alone, but the people there can’t give you more Saturday afternoons, more late night Tuesdays.

    It’s all a fucking joke, and we all die.

    Bring that bitch on.
