the-history-of-april-fools-day-20-interest-facts-you-should-know

This holiday is not included in any calendar or country. However, this does not prevent people from celebrating this day on a grand scale.

 

Have you ever wondered where the origins of this holiday come from? Why didn't you choose another day for such a peculiar event? And not only in one country, but in many. Opinions are divided over the origin of this holiday. From this article you will learn not only about the history of April Fool's Day, but also about how residents of different countries celebrate this day, what traditions they have, and also get acquainted with the most interesting rallies that have become a real history.

 

Where did this date come from? There are several options for the origin of this merry holiday. Some are inclined to believe that this holiday is an echo of the ancient spring festival, the celebration of which fell on April. They played and joked a lot that day. Others think that the tradition of making fun of others dates back to the Middle Ages.

 

So far, there is no real evidence for any of the theories. There are many assumptions about the origin of this holiday. However, it all boils down to the fact that the source is still the medieval tradition of Europeans to arrange carnivals. Such a pagan holiday that Christians liked.

 

There are people who are sure that a similar holiday was celebrated in ancient Rome. They called it then the holiday of fools. Others are convinced that the origins of this event are ancient India, where the Day of Jokes fell on March 31st. There is also a third party. These are supporters of the idea that the tradition of joking came to us from the Irish.

 

There are some rather strange versions. For example, one of the options boils down to the fact that this holiday owes its appearance to the Neapolitan king Monterey. They say in honor of the fact that the earthquake stopped, the king was presented with a fish. A year later, Monterey began demanding the same fish. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find the exact same species, and the chef used another, which was as similar as possible to the previous one. However, the king could not be deceived, but he did not become angry, but on the contrary - laughed. 

 

Bemorepanda collected some facts about April Fools Day.

 

1. The coolest draw is considered to be April 1, 1986. The bottom line was that the newspaper published an announcement about the decision to dismantle the symbol of France - the Eiffel Tower. There was a proposal to move the famous object to another location. The article in all colors described the process of dismantling the tower, in which even American helicopters were supposed to take part. After that, they wanted to assemble the tower in a horizontal position and use the cranes to raise it. The project took 6 months. The Parisians, in frustrated feelings, began to besiege the editorial office, constantly calling them. But on the second day, an article with a refutation was published.

2. The British also got it in 1860. Many Londoners received invitations to the solemn ceremony of washing the white lions before April 1st. The event was scheduled for 11 o'clock and was to take place in the Tower. The curious townspeople came at the appointed time to the appointed place. Imagine how upset everyone was when they were told it was just a prank.

3. One of the leading newspapers in England, by April 1, published an advertisement for a round the world trip, which cost only two hundred pounds. The message of a well-known commentator who was engaged in the propaganda of Italian spaghetti looked very truthful. He claimed that this product grows, right in the trees. The British are a little limited on this day. You can only joke until 12 noon. The most outstanding draw of the past century (1957) belongs to the BBC.

20-disturbing-facts-that-many-people-choose-not-to-share

Since childhood, many have heard the saying “you will know a lot, you will soon grow old”, but we never took it seriously, because everything around seemed very interesting to us, and we wanted to learn as much as possible. However, as we grew up, we began to realize that some things we would rather never know at all. But since you are here, then you are ready to learn a little more about what others usually prefer not to talk about. These people do not include the tiktoker Adorian Deck, who has amassed 2 million subscribers with his disturbing facts videos. Adorian himself calls them "facts that will ruin your day", but this is not certain, but the fact that they will expand your horizons with unusual knowledge - definitely! Look, get new knowledge, and this ... do not be discouraged there 💛

 

“In the minds of everyone who knows you, there is a different version of you.”

10-15-39-1635079162361255643In fact, this simply means that each person perceives you differently, which is why they form your own image in their head, which is most likely different from yours. an image created in the head of another person.

 

“Night is the natural state of the universe. For a day, it is worth saying thank you to the nearby fireball. ”

10-15-39-1635079168254057737

There are enough cosmic bodies in the Universe that are far from the stars, on which, perhaps, there was never a day.

 

"If you become the oldest of the people, by the time all of humanity has time to update, except yourself,"

10-15-39-16350791742079866129

That your entire generation (and all previous ones) will already die, and new ones will come to replace it, in order to repeat the same cycle once again.

 

 

“If you try to remove the brain in its natural state, it will fall apart. When you see how scientists do it, it keeps its shape because they used chemicals to strengthen it. ”

10-15-39-16350791791909610222

The brain is not as resilient as many are used to thinking.

 

"By law, cruise ships must have a morgue for passengers who inevitably die on every voyage."

10-15-39-1635079184253668926

Perhaps the information about death on every voyage is a little exaggerated, but in fact this does not happen as infrequently as we would like.

 

“Hearing is the last feeling that disappears before death.”

10-15-39-1635079188525411377

People in a coma are reported to retain their hearing ability, so doctors often recommend that visitors talk to people in a coma.

 

“In babies, molars (permanent) teeth are right under the eyes.”

10-15-39-16350791921274659874

Naturally, we are not talking about all molars, but only about some of the teeth from the upper row, which will eventually replace the milk ones.

 

 

“Doctors once planned to remove what they thought was a tumor from a patient's lungs. It turned out that it was a pine twig growing in the lungs of this man. ”

10-15-39-1635079198339854976

In 2009, doctors found a 5 cm long spruce twig in the lungs of a resident of Izhevsk Artyom Sidorkin. The man was hospitalized with lung cancer.

Doctors believe that the man could inhale the seed, and it sprouted in the lungs, while biologists say that this is impossible, and the twig got into the lungs entirely. In their judgment, biologists rely on the fact that a plant needs sunlight to grow, which, obviously, is not in the lungs.

The appearance of a twig in a man's lungs is still a mystery.

 

“Dogs like squeaky toys, because they look like frightened or injured prey.”

10-15-40-16350792021845062009

Apparently, for the same reason, dogs instinctively violently shake toys from side to side in order to break the back of their toy prey.

 

"Once upon a time, sea scorpions the size of a great white shark lived on Earth

10-15-40-16350792081334098392

."

Scientists came to this conclusion after finding fossilized remains, which were first discovered in 1844.

 

"During World War II, Japan dropped fleas infected with bubonic plague on China

10-15-40-16350792131619649864

." Along with their experiments, the actions of the popular TV series "The Squid Game" will seem like a child's fairy tale.

According to information in Wikipedia, Detachment 731 was organized to prepare for bacteriological warfare, mainly against the Soviet Union, as well as against the Mongolian People's Republic, China and other states.

 

"At some period of life in the human body, on average, there is more than one skeleton, and all this is due to pregnancy"

10-15-40-16350792171250124417In the overwhelming majority of countries of the world there are more women than men, and this dry statistical conclusion follows from this information.

 

 

“The photo for your grave monument may have already been taken”

10-15-40-16350792211381379059

No one ever knows which photo will be used to put it on the monument, so it may be the one that was already taken, and that you may have taken.

 

"Cannibalism is common among hamsters"

10-15-40-16350792281363401496

You may have already heard that female hamsters can eat their cubs, but males living in the same cage can show this attitude towards each other.

Reportedly, males are not very fond of the company of other males, as they have to share the same territory with them, which leads to constant stress. Some hamsters solve this problem as described above.

 

“Trapped person syndrome is a syndrome in which you can only move your eyes while the rest of your body is paralyzed. In fact, you can go into a coma-like state and be aware of it. ”

10-15-40-16350792331781880925

At the same time, people remain conscious and sensitive. With long-term preservation of the "locked-in person" syndrome, patients can be trained to transmit rather complex information with their eyes.

The causes of the development of the syndrome can be various disorders of the brain, diseases and some poisons.

Where to watch the latest and best family movies: on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video?

 

The growth of streaming services has continued rapidly over the past few years, with many platforms available offering all sorts of entertainment for all tastes.

 

However, two remain the most talked about: Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. They offer similar functionality: TV shows and movies are available to watch at your leisure. They offer 4K HDR content and offline viewing. This makes it difficult to choose between them.

 

Netflix has a handful of films with titles like The Irishman that make a big splash on the service. There are several Netflix exclusives, but outside of them, the movie selection tends to get old - it's back catalog stuff, not somewhere you go to watch the latest blockbusters. Since everything is part of a Netflix subscription, there is no natural way out of it.

 

Amazon has the upper hand here. Because it offers content to rent or buy, you can find newer stuff and pay for it. Some may not want to fork out the money. Still, if you're going to watch something in particular, Amazon will often have it available for some before Netflix does.

 

Amazon then tends to offer some movies as part of Prime, but that's the flip side of the dual approach - sometimes you see something you want to watch, and then you find out you have to buy it. Netflix never does this to you, so you will never feel disappointed.

 

 

Let's just say that choosing between Netflix and Amazon Prime Video is not an easy task. It will most likely come down to two things: price and preference.

 

You need to consider which type of movies and shows you enjoy the most and compare the results of each incredibly original and exclusive content. Top Gear fans, for example, will no doubt want to subscribe to Amazon's The Grand Tour service to watch the exploits of Jeremy Clarkson and his henchmen.

 

Comic book fans would prefer to choose Netflix due to the content partnership with Marvel Studios. However, there is now a move to DC with Disney + taking Marvel under its roof. Netflix is ​​probably the best single access to streaming content - with so many big shows running through the service, watching it is practically a must.

 

On the other hand, Amazon is a much larger platform - content to rent or buy, additional channels to subscribe to - Amazon offers a lot beyond streaming entertainment. Of course, the TV service is essentially free for those who pay for Amazon Prime.

 

Could you live with Amazon Prime instead of Netflix? Of course, you can - you will have a lot of entertainment. The question is, can you live without Netflix, which still dominates streaming communication.
