8 Amazing Lesser Known Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

Our world is fraught with mysteries and secrets. Sometimes it seems that you have seen so much in this life that nothing can surprise you ever again. And then you accidentally overhear someone saying something unbelievable and strange.

Here are 8 amazing lesser-known facts that will blow your mind:-

1. Some sharks have to swim continuously to keep oxygen-rich water flowing over their gills, but others are able to pass water through their respiratory system by pumping their pharynx. This allows them to rest and still breathe on the seafloor. ... Sharks, on the other hand, don't have a swim bladder.
The lack of a swim bladder gives sharks unique advantages. One advantage of not having this organ is that the body of the shark is incompressible, allowing it to move between different depths without the risk of exploding or imploding.

2. When the dinosaurs were alive, there were 370 days a year and the day was only 23 hours long. This phenomenon occurred as the earth slows down, and as a result, the days are getting longer, about 1.7 milliseconds per century.

3. Blood appears green below 30 feet underwater, which means that there is no red light in the water at 30 feet or so, so that red light does not bounce blood into our eyes. Instead, green is reflected by green pigments in the blood that is usually hidden by the reflected red light. If you went deeper, the blood would change from green to black.

4. The Hemlock Water Dropwort plant is so poisonous that it leaves a smile on the victim's face when they die. ... Oenanthotoxin is the potent poison that lies within the Hemlock Water Dropwort. The poison acts by constricting the muscles that cause death by asphyxia, which also causes rictus such as death grin, sardonic grin. Hemlock Water Dropwort is the most poisonous plant in the United Kingdom and all parts of it are poisonous.

5. Apple seeds contain amygdalin, a substance that releases cyanide into the bloodstream when it is chewed and digested. However, small quantities of apple seeds do not contain enough cyanide to cause harm.

6. A leech has 10 stomachs, 32 brains, 9 pairs of testicles, and several hundred teeth. The internal structure of Leech is divided into 32 separate segments, each of which has its own brain. In addition, each leech has nine pairs of testicles and several hundred teeth.

7. Canada has an anti-gravity zone. For years, people have been perplexed by a mysterious area in Canada known as the Hudson Bay. The Hudson Bay has less gravity than the rest of the world. The area around the Hudson Bay has less mass because some of the Earth has been pushed to the side of the ice sheet. Less mass means less gravitation. ... Convection and the rebounding effect of the ice sheet are both causing some reduction in gravity around the Bay of Hudson.

8. A soap bar produced by a family-run business in Lebanon may make you think twice about washing too often. Infused with gold and diamond powder, a single bar of Qatar's soap costs $2,800 (£1,700; €2,050).
