8 Fascinating Facts You'll Want To Share With Everyone You Know

The world around us is wonderful and unpredictable and filled with things that can't be explained. Facts that most of us have not heard or have not been told to most of us. These 8 random facts, however, are worth knowing:-

1. Anti-paparazzi clothing meant to make flash photography impossible. Made from a highly reflective fabric, the camera flashlights up brilliant white, darkening the rest of the image almost into oblivion. The flash increases the power needed to match what the camera looks for. Anti-paparazzi clothing tricks the camera into thinking that the scene is brighter than it actually is. The reflection sensed during the 'pre-flash' reduces the flash strength resulting in underexposed subjects.

2. To kill the germs, chlorine is put into pools. It forms chemicals called chloramines when it binds to urine (which the swimmers put into the pools). Those chemicals are what causes your eyes to become so irritated, as well as your skin and respiratory tract, according to the CDC.

3. You have to pay a deposit in Germany for most of the plastic bottles you buy. Usually, that is 25 ct per bottle. Once it's empty, you can bring it back to the supermarket and get your deposit back by putting it in a bottle recycling machine. This is just one of the reasons that the streets are so clean.

4. The world's largest cave "Hang Son Doong" is in Vietnam and so large it has its own river, jungle, and climate. Hang Son Doong has formed two to five million years ago, when the water of the river, flowing through the limestone, collapsed along a fault, scouring a giant tunnel beneath the mountains. In places where the limestone was weak, the ceiling collapsed into sinkholes, creating a gigantic skylight. Son Doong Cave is currently the largest cave in the world and is environmentally sensitive, therefore the Government of Quang Binh Province has issued a regulation that allows only 1,000 tourists to visit the cave every year, usually 10 tourists per tour.

5. The Church of the Transfiguration appeared 300 years ago on the island. This 22-dome temple was built from wood by an unknown master on the site of an old church that burned down after lightning struck. According to the Russian carpentry traditions of the time, the Transfiguration Church was made of wood only with no nails apart from the domes and shingles of the roof. Approximately 180,000 nails secure the 60,000 shingles of the roof.

6. Human libraries where you can borrow someone who has stories to tell you from their unique life experiences. The Human Library is an international organization and movement that started in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2000. It aims to address people's prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally have met. The organization uses a library analog of lending to people rather than to books.

7. Adidas turns plastic ocean waste into sneakers and sportswear. In 2015, Adidas has partnered with Parley for the Oceans to turn marine pollution into sportswear. Adidas uses recycled plastic bottles to replace virgin polyester. In 2019, Adidas expects to make 11 million pairs of Ocean Plastic shoes. Each pair takes approximately 11 plastic bottles to make.

8. Bali Heritage Reflexology and Spa in Jakarta, Indonesia offers a unique massage treatment that involves putting pythons on the client's body.

Hope you liked it.
