Best Facts of All Time - Page 16

The faster you move, the heavier you get. You're heavier when you run than when you're standing still.




The more energy you put into something, the more mass it accumulates. So if you're moving fast, you gain weight. It's only a tiny, temporary weight gain, but if you were traveling close to the speed of light your mass would increase rapidly.

Other weird physics facts:

All the matter that makes up the human race can fit into a sugar cube. This is because atoms are mostly empty space. If you crammed all the atoms in all human beings together, without any wasted space, they wouldn't be any bigger than a sugar cube. However, that sugar cube would weigh 5 BILLION TONS.

Light doesn't always travel at the speed of light. The speed of light is only constant in a vacuum. When it passes through matter it can slow down. Photons (light particles) pass through water at 3/4ths the regular speed of light. Light was once slowed down to 38 miles per hour.

If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle


If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died from battle wounds; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.

An average person will spend 1 1/2 years of their lifetime in the bathroom.




This is according to research done in the United Kingdom. In addition, women spend an average of 1 year, 7 months, and 15 days longer in the bathroom than men. However, men spend more time on the toilet than women do (an hour and 45 minutes every week, compared to an hour and 20 minutes a week for women).

Other weird facts? The average Brit spends 62 days in a lifetime drying themselves off. Brits also spend 18 minutes every week cleaning their teeth (while Scots spend half a minute less per week doing this).

Some awesome lists!

OUR SUN WILL NEVER EXPLODE. It is far too small to generate enough energy to become a supernova (an exploded star.)
