Which came first chicken or egg ?

image

Few of you might say that egg came first because egg is the building block of the chicken , no chicken can be born itself.
Others may say that chicken came first because they lay these eggs.

image

But the real truth is now discovered .
According to Scientists –
Chicken came before the egg because the proteins which makes egg shells is only produced by hens. And the first hen must be by the genetic disorder of any other species that is supposed to be extinct before the birth of very first human.

Fact : Do you know ? Of what material currency notes are made of.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that Money notes are not made from paper, they are made mostly from a special blend of cotton and linen.

Its constituents are 75% cotton and 25% linen.
That’s why when by mistake you wash money notes in your clothes pockets, maximum time  they won’t tear apart, sometimes if you notice they look like new notes too.

But that doesn’t means that you keep on washing notes.

Fact : Do you know ? Your sneeze can fracture your rib cage.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that Sneezing is such a common involuntary activity that every locomotive living being suffers from it. Not only humans but also animals like dogs, lions, etc. also had it at least once a month.

image

A research found that human being can sneeze up to 100 miles per hour.
Minimum speed of sneeze can be 30 miles per hour.

Much like a temperamental computer, our noses require a “reboot” when overwhelmed, and this biological reboot is triggered by the pressure force of a sneeze. When a sneeze works properly, it resets the environment within nasal passages so “bad” particles breathed in through the nose can be trapped. The sneeze is accomplished by biochemical signals that regulate the beating of cilia (microscopic hairs) on the cells that line our nasal cavities.

image

Part of the message the brain receives in the leads up to a sneeze is to close those eyes. It’s an involuntary reflex similar to the way your knee reacts when your doctor taps on it with that tiny hammer. A sneeze can’t, however, pop your eye out, like some story tales that you have believe.
But if you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in head or neck and die eventually.

Fact : Do you know ? There is no place on earth where humans don’t live with rats.

Posted on Updated on

Rat, mouse, rodents whatever you call them do you know they are the only animals after dogs which are always found with humans everywhere.

image

In fact, except underwater, extreme high mountains, space and moon there is no place in the universe where human has survived without a rat. Rats are also found in Antarctica.

This small creature is sometimes helpful to humans but most of the times it creates problem, precisely lots of problems, they dig in the floor, gnaw books and cloths, etc.
Do you know there are several species of rats which can dig 100s of feet in a single night.
Point to be noted, favourite time of these little monsters is the night time. 90% of their damage is done in the nights.
Although their lifespan is not too long, but their teeth never stop growing till death.
They don’t love gnawing, they do so to get rid of extra long teeth. So it doesn’t matter to a mouse, what is in his mouth it could be a wooden furniture, ceramic tile, baby toys, anything except metals.

image

Do you know rats  can live up to 2 months without drinking water and they are better than dogs if it comes to sniffing business. And their memory is also good in comparison to their size. A small mouse can remember every path it has travelled on through its whole life. So don’t even think that you can get rid of them easily.

Fact : Do you know ? Gravity is almost equal at all places of earth crust but still there are some exceptions.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know there is less gravity in few areas of Canada with respect to other parts of earth.

In the 1960s, scientists began to chart Earth’s gravitational fields. You would expect that gravity be the same across the world. It’s not like you feel incredibly heavy in the United States while you practically float around in South America. You always feel the same gravitational pull.

image

However, they found that gravity actually did vary. In Canada, there are certain areas with less gravity than normal. The Hudson Bay, for example, is “missing” gravity.

There are two theories as to why this may be true.

1. One theory cites convection as the cause. Convection pulls the Earth’s plates downward, which decreases the mass in that area and decreases the gravity.

image

2. The other theory cites the Laurentide Ice Sheet as the cause. The Ice Sheet melted 10,000 years ago and left a huge indent in the Earth, which could mess with the gravity.
