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.

Tokyo, the capital of distant and prosperous Japan, stuns tourists literally from the first moments, as soon as the traveler's footsteps on his land. Everything seems to be different here than in other cities: an incredibly complex layout of blocks, and intricate metro lines that are perceived as not connected to each other, and a solid jungle of city communications wires. During rush hours, people seem to merge into one river, and its flows fill the streets, underpasses, public transport. Here you need to always keep your eyes open, because it is very easy to get lost, getting completely different from where you hoped to be.


Tokyo is second in the world in terms of population density. The city of 37 million is not only the political, administrative and financial, but also the industrial and cultural center of the country. Located in the southeastern part of Japan's largest island of Honshu, this ultra-modern metropolis, where life does not stop day or night, is located on the Kanto Plain, in a cozy bay of Tokyo Bay. To truly feel its amazing atmosphere and get acquainted with at least half of the sights, one day or even a week is not enough - you need to live here for several months.

10-things-you-didnt-know-about-thanksgiving-in-canada

Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving today. Usually an occasion to reunite with family or friends, this year the holiday is affected by the sanitary measures required by the authorities in an attempt to stop the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Bemorepanda is here to surprise you.

 

Here are some things you may not know about this Canadian holiday.

 

1. The first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Canada in 1578, when the English sailor Martin Frobisher arrived on Baffin Island with his crew. They celebrated with a dinner the fact that they arrived safely at their destination.

 

2. From 1921 to 1930, Thanksgiving Day was combined with Armistice Day (now Remembrance Day), celebrated on November 11th. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday in October 1931, except in 1935, when there was a conflict between this holiday and the date of the general election.

 

3. In 1957, Thanksgiving became a national holiday. The Canadian parliament declared Monday the second of October as a day off to thank "for the abundant harvest with which Canada has been blessed."

 

4. Although federally recognized, Thanksgiving Day in Canada is not a day off in Prince Edward, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

 

5. Why is turkey eaten on this day? Nobody knows for sure. There are many theories about how the turkey became the predominant meal on Thanksgiving, including the fact that this bird could be easily found and is large enough to feed a family.

 

6. 20.2 million turkeys are sold annually in Canada, according to Statistics Canada. The data is from 2018. A little over 390 million dollars are the annual revenues made by farms that grow turkeys.

 

7. On Thanksgiving Day 2019, 2.5 million whole turkeys were bought by Canadians, the equivalent of 39% of sales during the year, according to the Turkey Growers Association.

 

8. But Thanksgiving is not the day to eat the most turkey. At Christmas 2019, 2.7 million turkeys were bought by Canadians, equivalent to 42% of annual sales.

 

9. 64.3% of all cranberries consumed in Canada come from Quebec and 38.9% of apples consumed come from Ontario.

 

10. The United States celebrates Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday in November. One possible explanation is that the harvest season is earlier in Canada, due to the colder climate than in the United States.

what-is-the-history-of-black-friday-15-fun-and-interesting-facts-you-should-know-bemorepanda

This is a huge traditional sale, a fabulous time when all self-respecting stores are competing to see who has more discounts. Black Friday began in the USA as a great excuse to buy gifts before the Christmas holidays. This is the first Friday after Thanksgiving and falls between November 23rd and 30th. At this time there were always sales, and in the 60s the term "Black Friday" itself appeared.

 

Over time, the wave was picked up by the whole world: the more competition, the more discounts that attract even more people. So this snowball is rolling, causing a crazy stir. Someone needs gifts, someone has been waiting the whole year for the opportunity to buy an expensive thing, and someone enterprisingly buys everything and then sells it at auctions at a higher price.

People wait patiently for Black Friday for months, and then all at once pile on stores and grab goods in an hour. And if the Internet sites at this time simply hang on the number of people, then in real shopping centers madness, crush, assault and other types of simple human fun are happening. Bemorepanda prepared some interesting facts about Black Friday for you:

 

1. In 2020, Black Friday falls on November 29th, which marks the beginning of the biggest sale of the year worldwide. Some stores prefer to open early, and some even agree to work around the clock.

 

2. Aliexpress is perhaps the most popular store during the promotion days, discounts up to 70% on already cheap goods attract crowds of buyers.

 

3. eBay this year promises discounts of up to 50%, you can buy anything on sale: from a food processor to sports equipment, the main thing is to pay attention to the delivery terms.

 

4. For the first time this term sounded on September 24, 1869 during a panic in the US stock market: then the gold rate collapsed by 30%, ruining many small businesses.

 

5. In the fifties of the XX century, severe traffic jams on the roads of Philadelphia, which began after Thanksgiving Day, were dubbed Black Friday - the traffic police could not cope with the traffic collapse.

 

 

6. Massive sales after Thanksgiving have been (and continue to be) a hefty profit.

 

7. In America, sales had an additional meaning: sellers not only got rid of surplus goods in store for Thanksgiving, but also attracted those who wanted to shop early for the Christmas holidays.

 

8. Many sellers sin by raising prices in early to mid-November in order to effectively lower them on the day of the sale (and achieve those same ninety percent discounts). The total discount is obtained either much less than the declared one, or even absent altogether.

 

9.In 2018, according to the estimates of the National Retail Federation of the United States, on Black Friday itself, Americans made $ 6.2 billion (23.6% more than in 2017), and just over the weekend 165 million people were shopping.

 

10. Despite the proliferation and increase of online shopping, many shoppers still prefer physical stores, and more than half of those who were flattered by last year's sales were shopping both in stores and online.

 

 

11. The fashion industry is still more likely to be in the rearguard of Black Friday in terms of the number of buyers and, of course, the amount of the check. For example, consumers are projected to spend, on average, just over $ 250 each on clothing and footwear (by comparison, the average furniture bill is likely to be over $ 700).

 

12. True, while brands like H&M, Topshop and Mango offer discounts on almost the entire assortment, then for Farfetch and Net-a-Porter Black Friday becomes a reason to sell off the rest: special discounts apply only to the Sale department.

 

13. In recent years, Amazon, Argos, Boots, Currys, Debenhams, Halfords, House of Fraser, John Lewis, Littlewoods, Morrisons, Tesco and Very have been among the most active members with the best discounts.

 

14. Which states that 87% of Black Friday special pricing items can be purchased for the same price or even lower at other times of the year.

 

15.When shopping, please note the explanation for the special offer. Sometimes stores simply indicate the price "was-now", where the product was sold at the old price almost six months ago, but not yesterday.

 

On the one hand, Black Friday really looks like a thoughtless celebration of consumerism - and therefore aggravates environmental problems, for which the fashion industry is also responsible. On the other hand, it is possible to preserve sanity even during total stunning sales. Glossy magazines also call for this - with materials in the spirit of "What timeless things to buy at a discount" or "How to assemble a basic wardrobe for a sale." “Trends are cool,” admits Who What Wear, but warns that they won't work in a wardrobe unless you have a solid base to pair them. "And it doesn't have to be expensive."

 

There is nothing wrong with discounts in and of themselves, and even more, it is a great opportunity for many buyers to "jump" into a more expensive and high-quality clothing segment and choose durable items made from sustainable materials and in compliance with the principles of sustainable development. You can deliberately support brands that refuse discounts in favor of charitable initiatives. Finally, a big sale could be a good non-sale solution.

2. "Pirates of the Caribbean" - compass

In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, when Commander James Norrington holds up the compass, he points to Jack, not Elizabeth. This compass does not point north or south, but in the direction of what the person holding it desires most. So the filmmakers wanted to show that the commander values ​​his duty above his feelings: it is more important for him to catch a pirate than to be with his beloved.

The Oscar-winning film The Shape of Water features a scene in which Eliza admires a pair of red shoes. Later, when the heroine begins a relationship with Amphibian Man, you can see how she confidently walks through the laboratory in those very shoes. Perhaps this is how the filmmakers wanted to show that Eliza gained confidence and expanded the boundaries of her capabilities.

 

7. "Pirates of the Caribbean" - Jack Sparrow's father ring

In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Captain Teague wears a silver skull ring. In fact, it is not a prop for the film, but a real decoration of actor Keith Richards. This ring was given to him for his birthday in 1978, and he has not taken it off since.

The company logo appears on the glass in the office of the head of a wealthy family, as well as on the mugs from which the heroes drink.

By the way, Depp himself suggested adding orange spots on the Hatter's face. The fact is that in the 18th-19th centuries, hatters worked with mercury, which left orange and reddish spots on the skin. In addition, the metal caused chronic intoxication, which had a detrimental effect on mental health.

 

13.Bonus: "10 reasons I hate" - a scene with a poem
