Who among us wouldn't want to be a brilliant conversation?. Whether you're chatting with colleagues, friends, or someone you're trying to impress over a call. We all love to share interesting information with family or friends that they probably didn't know yet.

Here are 8 random lesser-known facts that you probably don't know yet:-

1. Organic burial pods, an eco-friendly idea of 'making the tombstone graveyard a memorial.' ... The idea is to put a body in a fetal position and enclose it in a biodegradable burial capsule that is then planted with a seed or tree in the soil. The concept is to approve these organic burial pods for use in natural burial grounds, ultimately creating beautiful woodland memorial parks.

2. The quietest place on earth, the anechoic chamber at Orfield Laboratories in Minnesota, is so quiet that the longest one has ever been able to bear it is 45 minutes. It's silent inside the room. So quiet that the background noise measured is actually negative decibels,-9.4 dBA.

3. There are species known as 'biologically immortal' (Biological immortality is a state in which the rate of senescence mortality is stable or declining): the jellyfish Turritopsis dohrnii. These small, transparent animals are hanging out in oceans around the world and can turn time back by returning to the earlier stage of their life cycle.

Lobsters also have a never-ending supply of an enzyme called telomerase, which works to keep telomeres regenerating. They produce a lot of this enzyme in all their cells throughout their adult lives, allowing them to maintain young DNA indefinitely.

4. Humans are not the only ones to appreciate the earthy aroma of April's rain shower. The smell — known as petrichor — of microscopic streptomycete bacteria in the soil produces a compound called geosmin.

5. Eco-Link@BKE is an ecological bridge in Singapore connecting the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve with the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. ... The Eco-Link is Asia's first green bridge. Eco-Link@BKE is intended to support wildlife conservation efforts in Singapore. It helps animals move safely from one part of the forest to another, across roads and expressways.

6. Zavikon Island is home to a bridge that, at only 32 feet in length, is considered to be the shortest international bridge in the world. It connects a Canadian island to an American island in the middle of the Saint Lawrence River.

7. There is a movie titled "100 years: the movie you will never see" that's set to be released on November 18, 2115. The content of the film is currently kept secret because it will only be revealed when it is released about 95 years from now.

8. Charles Darwin is best known for his work as a naturalist, developing a theory of evolution to explain biological change. The less well-known fact of the scientific explorer of the 19th century is that he had an equally adventurous palate. He eagerly ate many of his specimens, including iguanas, armadillos, and rheas.
