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.

30-facts-from-the-world-of-statistics-that-help-you-improve-your-knowledge

Millions of people are drawn to knowledge and want to know more. But when it comes to complex graphs and numbers, we tend to ignore the information. And as soon as it comes to statistics, we remember the boring lessons of mathematics and do not pay attention to such facts. But in vain. Do you know that statistical things are much more interesting and entertaining when everything superfluous has been removed from it, leaving only the facts?

 

Reddit users share interesting and entertaining statistics

 

We at Bemorepanda have collected interesting statistics that are related to different things in our world. And we think that it will be more interesting for you to learn about them than to watch the next series on the Internet.

 

1. About pilots

56% of pilots admitted to falling asleep in the cockpit.

 

Not only that, 29% of the pilots who woke up afterwards found that the other pilot was also asleep.

 

2. About walking

The average moderately active person takes about 7,500 steps a day. If a person maintains this average per day and lives to be 80 years old, they will walk 216,262,500 steps in their lifetime.

 

3. About names

Sofia and Alexander are the most popular names in Moscow. Unfortunately, there are no statistics for all of Russia by name. Available only in the USA. Mary and James are the most popular names in the United States for the past 100 years.

 

4. About work

85% of people don't like their job. This is the world average. In some countries, this figure is slightly better - for example, in the US, somewhere around 70% hate their job.

 

5. About the Vietnam War

More US veterans who fought in Vietnam committed suicide than died in the war. — Fewwordsbetter / Reddit

 

6. About cats

80% of orange striped cats are male. — kitkat_pro / Reddit

 

7. About seat belts

Wearing a seat belt correctly reduces the chance of a front-seat passenger being killed in a frontal collision by 45%. Seat belts save lives. People, damn it, buckle up! Also, don't forget that car airbags are more likely to cause injury than prevent it. Especially when seat belts are not fastened. — danthemanning / Reddit

 

8. About movement in space

  • Raise your hands and clap your hands.
  • Wait one second, then do it again.
  • If you could measure the distance between the first and second claps, it would be over 800 kilometers.
  • This is because the Earth is moving around the Sun, the Sun is moving around the center of the galaxy, the galaxy is moving through the Virgo Supercluster, and the Virgo Supercluster is racing through the Universe. When you sum up all the speeds and compare the result with the cosmic microwave background (which is the closest we have to a universal frame of reference), it turns out that in one second you, along with the Earth and other space objects in space, moved 800 kilometers.
  • In the time it took you to read this, you moved farther in space than you have ever moved in your life. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

9. About the Chinese

If you take the entire population of our planet and calculate the average person, it turns out that this is a 30-year-old Chinese. — ohazltn/reddit

 

10. About Australia

Australia has more kangaroos than people. — Jiren21 / Reddit

 

For reference: 25 million people and about 50 million kangaroos live in Australia.

 

11. About sharks

Sharks of ancient trees. Sharks are at least 400 million years old, while trees are about 350 million years old.

 

Another fun fact: when it comes to evolution, sharks are one of the most endangered species of marine animals. Thanks to "adaptive radiation", these marine animals are able to effectively mutate, perfectly adapting to a variety of habitat conditions. Adaptive radiation allows you to use new food sources and avoid enemies. As a result of this adjustment, there is an increase in species diversity in a short period of time. Modern sharks evolved as a result of adaptive radiation that occurred during the Jurassic period, about 200 million years ago. One of the newest modern sharks are the hammerhead sharks, which first appeared about 50 million years ago. corvettee01 / Reddit

 

12. About our time and the modern world

By almost every important indicator and statistic, the world today is better suited for a normal life than at any time in the history of mankind. — keenly_disinterested / Reddit

 

13. About animals

The tallest known giraffe (George) was 5.8 meters tall.

 

The largest crocodile ever measured (Lolong) was 6.17 meters long.

 

To get an idea of ​​the size of such a crocodile, think of the tallest giraffe you have ever seen, and then add a little and you have the longest crocodile.

 

Herpetologists agree that there are probably more large long crocodiles in nature. They are just hard to catch to measure. — FlorenceCattleya / Reddit

 

14. About rich people

The top 1% of the world's richest people have more than twice as much money as 6.9 billion people.

 

And the 8 richest people in the world have as much money as the poorest half, 3.6 billion people. — Munninnu / Reddit

 

15. About birthdays

If you are in a group of twenty-three people, there is a 50 percent chance that two of them share the same birthday.

 

If you are in a group of seventy people, this probability rises to 99%. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

16. About poverty

3-4 billion people in the world earn $2.50 or less a day. — chelseatys/reddit

 

17. About ecology

25% of air pollution in California comes from China. — cOOlio-pasta/Reddit

 

For reference: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that nearly 25 percent of the particulate matter in the skies over Los Angeles on certain days came from China. Some experts estimate that China accounts for a third of all air pollution in California. Experts have found ozone, carbon monoxide, mercury and particulate matter from Asia in the air.

 

18. About USA

America is home to approximately 5% of the world's population, but US prisons hold 25% of the world's total prison population. — Gaarakotq / Reddit

 

19. About heroine mothers

The world record for the number of children born to one mother is 69. She had 16 pairs of twins, 7 triplets and 4 quadruplets. And this record belongs to a Russian woman who lived in the 1700s in the Ivanovo region. — TnekKralc / Reddit

 

20. About the war

3% of all living on Earth in 1939 died in World War II. — paul99501 / Reddit

 

It is important to know and remember: according to the latest estimates, 26,600,000 people died in the USSR alone. This is approximately 13.52% of the total population of Soviet Russia in 1939.

 

21. On the movement of the continents

South America is moving away from Africa at about the same rate as human nails grow. — stickmanDave / Reddit

 

The speed of movement of the continent at the moment is about 20 millimeters per year.

 

22. About water

99 percent of the earth's water is unusable for humans and many other living things—only about 0.3 percent of our fresh water is found in the surface waters of lakes, rivers, and swamps. More than 68 percent of the fresh water on Earth is in ice caps and glaciers, and just over 30 percent is in groundwater.

 

It seems incredible that the water that supports all terrestrial as well as aquatic life on our planet is actually so scarce. With these numbers of statistics comes the realization that we must use this resource very wisely.

 

23. About mosquitoes

It would take about 1.2 million mosquitoes to suck all the blood out of a person, each of which must bite at least once. — pm_me_anythingg_sfw / Reddit

 

24. About the human body

Have you ever wondered how fat disappears from a person? And it doesn’t matter why: from playing sports or from starvation. It turns out that most of it (86%) comes out through breathing. The remaining 14% leave our body through the water in a natural way. — PleiadianJedi / Reddit

 

25. About physics

The size of a dust particle is somewhere between a subatomic particle and the size of our Earth. — reddit.com

 

A subatomic particle is smaller than an atom, and atoms are damn small. So the next time you see a grain of dust, think about how huge it is compared to, for example, the same neutrino, or how small it is compared to our planet.

 

26. About the Sun

It takes about 170,000 years for photons from the core of the Sun to reach the convection zone of the photosphere, where they are ejected further into space. In other words, the sunlight we see is hundreds of thousands of years old. — mattk1017 / Reddit

 

27. About Marriage

If you and your spouse are divorced and one of you (or both) has more than one failed marriage, your marriage has a 93% chance of failure. — reddit.com

 

According to research, the average marriage lasts 7 to 10 years. But in each country, the average duration of modern marriages is different. For example, in the United States, couples have been legally married for 8 years. In Italy, for example, the typical couple stays married for 18 years.

 

28. About playing cards

If you shuffle a deck of playing cards well, you will create a hand that has never been and probably never will be again. This is because there are 8.1x1067 possible layout combinations for 52 cards. It takes more time than our universe exists to roll every possible order of cards. — RamsesThePigeon/Reddit

 

It has been 700 years since playing cards were invented. Since that time, all the cards in the world have been shuffled and laid out approximately less than 1.546X1020 times. Thus, the chances that in one of these shuffles they were shuffled in the same order that you see in your spread is less than 1 in 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 (1 in 1047).

 

29. About billionaires

Even though they make up just under 2% of the population, 44% of the richest people in the world live in the US, and they are Jews. — rlrhino7 / Reddit

 

30. About countries

The population of vast Russia is smaller than the population of small Bangladesh. Bangladesh, as of 2022, is home to 165.9 million people. In Russia - 146.1 million people.

 

31. About Earth

Every hour the Earth receives more solar energy than the planet uses in a year. — Redshift_1 / Reddit

30-most-amazing-and-unknown-facts-about-amazon-and-jeff-bezoz-that-you-need-to-know-bemorepanda

Everyone knows Amazon.com, where you can order fast and convenient delivery of everything. Its creator, Jeff Bezos, promises that it will soon be possible to deliver orders in 10 minutes using aerial drones. But few have heard of Relentless.com. By typing this address in a search engine, you will be automatically redirected to Amazon.

 

The fact is that "Relentless" is one of the first names that 30-year-old Bezos came up with for his online store. The second option was "Kadabra" as part of a magic spell. But both did not pass, then Bezos simply took a dictionary from the shelf and chose one of the first words he came across - the Amazon River. Thus began one of the most successful business stories in the world. It has a bit of magic and ruthlessness.

 

Brad Stone's book "The Everything Store" is about Jeff Bezos and the Amazon era, which explores the early years of Amazon and how it evolved from an online bookstore to today's e-commerce giant. Bemorepanda have collected some interesting facts about Amazon from this book.

 

The Skills that Made Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Successful | Fortune

 

1. Amazon originally had a different name.

 

Jeff Bezos wanted to give his company the name Cadabra, which sounded like part of a spell.

 

But Amazon's first lawyer, Todd Tarbert, said the name was too similar to the word cadaver, which translates from English as "corpse." Customers may have misheard such a name on the phone.

 

Bezos also liked the title Relentless. By the way, if you go to Relentless.com, you will be redirected to the Amazon home page.

 

Finally, Bezos chose the name Amazon - he liked the idea of ​​naming the company after the largest river in the world. It can be seen on the original Amazon logo.

 

2. There used to be a bell in the company's office that would ring whenever someone made a purchase on Amazon

 

After a few weeks, the bell began to ring so often that it had to be removed.

 

3. Initially, Bezos opened a company in his garage. The servers required so much power that when Bezos and his wife turned on a hairdryer or vacuum cleaner in the house, they would short-circuit.

 

4. In its first month of operation, Amazon sold books to people from all 50 states of America and 45 different countries.

 

5. A little-known lichen book saved Amazon from bankruptcy.

 

Book distributors demanded to buy books in batches of ten, but Amazon didn't need that much, and the company wouldn't have enough money to buy them.

 

But in the end, there was one loophole with which it was possible to bypass this rule. Amazon began ordering one book and nine copies of some obscure lichen book that was always out of stock.

6. Bezos used to hold meetings at the Barnes & Noble bookstore.

 

In the early days of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, his wife Mackenzie, and their first employee, Shel Kafan, held meetings at a local Barnes and Noble store.

 

In 1996, Bezos met with the shopkeepers, and they said they respect him, but they are still going to launch a site that will destroy Amazon. Barnes and Noble co-founder Len Riggio wanted to call this site the Book Predator.

 

7. Jeff Bezos wanted his employees to work at least 60 hours a week.

 

Previously, the company did not know what it meant to maintain a balance between work and personal life. One of the first employees said that he worked without rest for more than eight months: he came to work early in the morning and returned late at night. He constantly rode his bike to work and completely forgot about the minibus that was parked at his house.

 

He didn’t have time to check his mail, and when he did open it, he saw several parking tickets, a notification from the tow truck and, finally, a message that his minibus was sold at an auction.

 

8. In 1998, Amazon had a very busy Christmas.

 

At that time, the company had a significant staff shortage. At Christmas time, all fulfillment center employees had to work the night shift. They called for help from friends and relatives and sometimes slept in their cars to go straight to work in the morning.

 

After this incident, Amazon promised to make sure that the next holidays the company has enough employees who would be able to fulfill the holiday orders. This is why Amazon is recruiting so many seasonal workers these days.

 

9. When eBay came along, Amazon launched its own auction site.

 

The idea failed, but Bezos liked it.

 

For $ 40,000, he bought the skeleton of a primeval cave bear and displayed it in the lobby of Amazon headquarters. This skeleton stands there to this day, and next to it is a sign "Please do not feed the bear."

 

10. Bezos enjoyed growing his company quickly, leading to chaos in Amazon's order centers.

 

In the late 90s and early 2000s, Amazon was in chaos. Centers were closed for several hours due to system failures, and mountains of goods were lying around, and the company was not ready to store new categories of products.

 

When Amazon started selling kitchen goods, it sometimes happened that the knives without the protective packaging cut the conveyor belt. The situation was extremely dangerous.

11. In early 2002, Bezos introduced the concept of a “two pizza team”.

 

He suggested that workers should work in groups of less than ten people - that's how many people can be fed with two pizzas. According to Bezos, such groups should work autonomously, they should have clear goals and a formula for assessing success.

 

12. Dissatisfied customers can send a complaint to Bezos's personal mail, and he will forward it to the right employee with a single scary "?"

 

Whenever Amazon employees receive a letter from Bezos with a question mark, they react to it like a bomb. They usually have several hours to solve the problem and prepare a detailed explanation of why it arose. The explanatory note is checked by senior managers and then redirected to Bezos himself. In this way, Bezos shows customers that their complaints are constantly reviewed by the company.

 

13. Even before Google Street View came along, Amazon had Block View.

 

In 2004, Amazon launched the A9.com search engine. The team that worked on it also began to develop a project called Block View, which would display photographs of them from the street in response to a search query about stores and restaurants. For less than $ 100,000, Amazon sent its car photographers to twenty US cities to photograph the restaurants they needed. In 2006, Amazon abandoned the project, and in 2007 Google launched Street View.

 

14. Amazon employees fought stress with primal screams.

 

During the holidays, it is especially difficult for the employees of the logistics department. In the early 2000s, Jeff Wilkie, Chief Operating Officer for Amazon, allowed anyone who was able to achieve a big goal at work to close their eyes and yell at him with all their might on the phone.

 

Some of these primal screams nearly broke his speakers, Wilkie said.

 

15. Sometimes the "protests" of employees of Amazon fulfillment centers ended in rather funny ways.

 

The working conditions in these centers are notorious and sometimes their employees have tried to go on strike. One day, a worker decided to quit his job and sat astride a conveyor belt - and so he rode all the way out of the building.

 

But the funniest story happened in 2006 with a temporary employee of a Kansas center.

 

This employee came and went at the beginning of the shift, but no one saw him during working hours. Only a week later, it was discovered that the man had made himself a lair inside a pile of empty wooden boxes. Inside, he built a bed of Amazon products, reinforced the walls with pages torn from books, and even stole ordered food. When his lair was finally discovered, the employee was fired (not surprisingly).

16. The original Amazon Kindle e-reader was codenamed "Fiona".

 

This name Kindle got from the book by Neil Stevenson "The Diamond Age". It told of a distant future in which an engineer managed to steal a rare interactive book for his knowledge-hungry daughter, Fiona. The team behind the Kindle prototype was inspired by this fictional device.

 

The team asked Bezos to keep the name Fiona, but he ended up choosing the Kindle. This word is translated as "kindle the flame", and it really liked Bezos.

 

17. Jeff Bezos is said to have hired a leadership coach to shout less at his subordinates.

 

Bezos is known for being quite harsh or sarcastic about employees who tell him something unpleasant. Rumor has it that he has hired a special assistant to help him respond to the news in a less harsh manner.

 

During one meeting, Bezos chastised employees in his usual harsh manner. He said that they were all fools and that he gave them a week to figure out what they were doing. Then he took a couple of steps, froze as if he suddenly realized something and said: "But still, you did a good job."

 

18. Bezos Realized a childhood dream.

 

Bezos founded his own space tourism company Blue Origin in 2000, decades after telling teachers and friends as a child that he wanted to be a “space entrepreneur” when he grew up.

 

19. Space enthusiast.

 

Jeff is so passionate about NASA during the Mercury and Apollo missions that he equipped and financed an underwater expedition to locate and recover the debris of Apollo rockets.

 

20. Bezos doesn't use an alarm clock.

 

He does not use an alarm clock and tends to sleep a full eight hours a night. No overnight fires or early risings for this CEO.

21. A good father.

 

As a child, Jeff was adopted by his stepfather Miguel Bezos. Today, the entrepreneur has four children with his wife Mackenzie: three sons and a daughter, whom the couple adopted in China.

 

22. He has come a long way.

 

As a teenager, Bezos worked at McDonald's, making French fries. At the same time, he founded a small summer camp for primary school students DREAM Institute.

 

23. Demanding to women.

 

Jeff had high demands on candidates for the role of a life partner. In an interview with Wired, he said that he was looking for one that "will get him out of the trap of the Third World."

 

24. Altruist, but not strong.

 

Originally from Albuquerque, Jeff studied at Princeton. There he studied electrical engineering and computer science. In 2011, he donated $ 15 million to the university to build a center for the study of neurological disorders.

 

At the same time, being the richest man on earth, Bezos is ranked last in the ranking of the top 10 billionaire benefactors.

 

25. A big fan of reading.

 

Bezos's favorite book is The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro.

26. Customers come first.

 

If you have any complaints or suggestions, just email jeff@amazon.com. Receiving emails to this mail, Bezos forwards the question to the person in charge at the company, who then reports directly to the CEO on the progress of the issue. So the problem is under control.

 

27. Bezos made the first tables for himself and Amazon employees himself.

 

He could not afford expensive furniture at the beginning of the journey, so he put together tables for the first employees himself, using wooden doors instead of tabletops and boards for legs. Now these tables have become something of an artifact at the company - for over 20 years at Amazon, they have been using various variations of that historically simple design for the desktop.

 

The company even instituted the Door Desk Awards, which give creators "good ideas to offer consumers the lowest prices."

 

28. Bezos is not a fan of expensive cars.

 

Despite the fact that after the founding of Amazon, Bezos' business rapidly went uphill, he did not, like many, buy yachts and expensive cars for himself and for a long time remained faithful to his 1987 Chevrolet Blazer, which at first personally delivered deliveries. In 1997, when the company went public, he finally swapped out his old car for the new Honda Accord.

 

29. Bezos once looked into the eyes of death.

 

In 2003, Jeff Bezos practically looked death in the eye. He was looking for land to build a test site for Blue Origin when his helicopter crashed on a tour of Texas. The Amazon CEO received a number of minor injuries and recovered quickly, but after that he did not fly helicopters for a long time.

 

“Nothing special occurred to me. I was only thinking about what a stupid way to die, ”Bezos told Fast Company in 2004.

 

It didn't become some kind of life-defining experience for me. I’m afraid I’ve learned a rather mundane lesson: Avoid helicopters whenever possible! They are not as reliable as air transport with wings. "

 

30. Bezos is an Early Investor in Google.

 

Less than five years after founding Amazon, Bezos demonstrated his investment flair by investing $ 1 million in Google in the late 90s. Then it was a serious risk, which by now has paid off handsomely.
