11 months ago

Today, wherever we go, we take our smartphone with us everywhere and can take a picture at any time. But this was not always the case, and most of the story passed without cameras and video filming. That is why historical photographs are so valuable, especially if they were taken in ancient times. Today we want to plunge with you into the times of the past and look at the life of people of those years, as well as see rare pictures of stars that few have seen.

Many people strive to learn as much as possible about the world around them, and absorb knowledge like a sponge does water. However, in some cases, we look at things one-sidedly, without thinking that there is another side that is unknown to us. Tiktoker with the nickname MjcMatthewis probably one of those curious people who are used to digging into the truth and imbuing themselves with new knowledge. The guy's account is dedicated to interesting facts that we did not know about, and, perhaps, would never have known if it were not for him.

Oxford University is older than the Aztec Empire


Oxford University is one of the oldest universities in the world. Although the exact date of the founding of the university is unknown, there is evidence that the study took place there as early as 1096. As for the civilization of the Aztecs, their ancestors came from the north and after long wanderings, founded a city on an island in the middle of Lake Texcoco, and named it Tenochtitlan. It happened in 1325.


There is a disease that can turn all of your muscle tissue into bones.


Fibrodysplasia ossifying progressive, or FOP, is a very rare genetic disorder in which muscles, tendons, and ligaments gradually turn into bones. The process progresses over the years, usually beginning around the age of ten in children with a specific gene mutation. The earliest recorded cases date back to the 17th and 18th centuries. 


The reason the Statue of Liberty is green


The Statue of Liberty was originally reddish brown in color because it was made of copper. However, several decades after its discovery, under the influence of the environment, it became covered with a layer of natural patina, which painted the statue in a greenish-blue color.


If you shuffle a deck of cards, it is statistically likely that you will shuffle them in an order that has never been and never


will.In fact, you will be the first person in history to shuffle them in this order.

The chances that someone has ever shuffled a deck of cards in the same way twice in world history are statistically infinitesimal. The number of possible permutations of 52 cards is equal to 52 factorials. To calculate the probability, you need to multiply 52 by 51, then by 50 ... and so on up to 1.

If you are still tormented by the question of the number of unique card shuffles, then there are 80 658 175 170 943 878 571 660 636 856 403 766 975 289 505 440 883 277 824 000 000 000 000 🃏


If you had a teaspoon-sized neutron star, it would have the same mass as the 900 pyramids of Giza.


A neutron star is considered one of the possible outcomes of stellar evolution. The masses of neutron stars are comparable to the mass of the Sun, but the typical radius of a neutron star is only 10-20 kilometers. Therefore, the average density of the substance of such an object is several times higher than the density of the atomic nucleus. In turn, the heaviest monolith on the Giza plateau is estimated at more than 200 tons.



The can opener was not invented until 83 years after the tin can.Although the


preservation of food with cans has been known since 1772, the first device for opening them was patented only in 1855 in England, and in the United States in 1858 🥫


There are more atoms in one glass of water than there are glasses of water in all the oceans and seas on Earth.If

The stickers that are glued to the fruit are actually edible.


This, of course, does not mean that such a sticker must be eaten, but if it gets into your stomach, then nothing terrible will happen. Even the glue on these stickers is edible 🍎


The Eiffel Tower was supposed to be located in a different location.It was


originally supposed that the Eiffel Tower would be located in Barcelona, ​​but the local authorities did not like the idea of ​​the project, therefore, since March 31, 1889, the tower flaunts in Paris. At the time of its opening, it was the gateway to the 1889 World's Fair.

In fact, many famous French people were against the construction of Paris' most iconic landmark, and were very resentful upon completion.

For example, many sources say that the famous writer Guy de Maupassant came every day to have breakfast in a restaurant located on the second floor of the tower. The question "why?", He replied: "This is the only place in the whole Paris, where no one can see thisugliness."

And one more fun fact, Eiffel himself called his creation simply "300-meter tower" 🗼

Many consider the time in which we live to be the best in the history of mankind due to the fact that today almost everything is available to people. We can go online wherever and whenever we want, create a non-existent person using a neural network and entrust the cleaning of our house to a robot vacuum cleaner. But today there is no such liveliness and purity of emotions that were before, and looking at photos of stars taken in the last century, you will be convinced of this.
