Weird And True Facts.

I will try and post one weird but true fact each weekday. Perhaps on a Saturday when I have some free time, like now. 

In 2014, a missing woman on a vacation in Iceland was found when it was discovered that she was in the search party looking for herself. (Source is from bu.edu website)

Apparently she never considered herself lost. 

Have a blessed weekend, take care and GOD bless.

Good Thursday morning dear friend. I hope you find this weird but true fact interesting. This is about the 16th President of the United States. Abraham Lincoln. He was known for abolishing slavery in this country, he is one of four to be carved on Mt. Rushmore. He only had 18 months of formal education, he was actually self educated. And his assassin was a famous actor at that time. But here is a really cool fact:

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was a champion wrestler and licensed bartender? 

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

I haven't thought about that - it seems like there would be more. I can't think of any others ending in "dous", @MOHLovesAlaska

Thanks for sharing!

@AlyssaPandora good Friday afternoon dear friend, I was thinking about looking into this fact myself. But with the very little free time I have, I think I will just sit on this project until I get some more free time to do just that. Thank you for your support in this thread. Have a wonderful weekend ahead. 

Take care my friend and GOD bless.

Good Friday morning dear friend, welcome to weird but true facts. 

This weird but true fact may freak you out, but this may be a weird and true fact that is double for me as well as others who live near or in the woods. You probably eat bugs in your sleep. There’s a good chance that we will swallow 10 spiders and 70 types of insects (or more) in the course of our lifetimes. This is one of the weird fun facts we could do without. Yuck! Food for thought over the weekend. 

Have a wonderful Friday and a blessed weekend. Take care and GOD bless.

Good Thursday morning dear friend. Welcome to weird but true facts. 

Rats and mice are ticklish, and even laugh when tickled. If you're someone who tries to steer clear of rodents, then you probably don't know that they're ticklish—just like humans. How do scientists know that? Because of the laughter, of course. A study published in Behavioral Brain Research in 2000 found that when rats were tickled, they let out a chirping sound that was like "youthful human laughter that typically occurs during play."

Good Friday morning dear friend, here is today's weird but true fact. 

A jiffy is an actual time measurement equaling 1/100th of a second. When someone tells you that they will be there in a jiffy, the delay is difficult to quantify. However, according to BBC Science Focus Magazine, a jiffy is a specific measurement, even if we don't use it that way in conversation. A second could contain around three hundred thousand billion billion jiffies to a physicist who is considering "how long light takes to travel a distance of one femtometre," the magazine states. Or a jiffy might be one-fiftieth of a second, if you're going by the UK's 50Hz system. (Source comes from Bestoflife.com/snapple-facts/)

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend, take care and GOD bless.
