# 6 Most Interesting Facts From The Present and The Past

When you live a boring life and nothing interesting ever happens, other people make great things happen. Of course, you don’t have to be one of them as you can simply watch and enjoy the moment. Let’s take a look at the most interesting and fun facts that happened in the past and that we can observe these days.

We can’t check all the facts in real life, but we can do it theoretically. Check these facts, tell your friends about them and try to discover any new ones if you wish to do this.

### Fact #1: The Chess game

You can have more possible iterations when playing chess than the number of atoms the universe. Of course, we cannot tell you the exact number of atoms, but the known number is still less. You can check it yourself if you don’t believe us. If you love playing chess and you have been practicing for a while, your brain will automatically predict at least three possible iterations. If you are a newbie, you shouldn’t focus only on the calculations as you may simply get lost and tired too early.

### Fact #2: A travel of a photon

A photon will spend about 40,000 years to get to the surface of the sun from its core. And a photon will spend about 8 minutes to get to our plant from the surface of the sun. It seems unbelievable, but it’s the truth. Of course, you won’t be able to check it with the timer on your phone, but you can think of the gravity of the sun and the weight of the photon when making calculations.

### Fact #3: The mosquitos

If you want to get rid of all the blood of your body, you will need about 1,200,000 mosquitoes that will drink all the liquid. We’re not joking here. We have simply calculated the volume of the blood that a single insect can take in and the amount of blood of an average human. We don’t recommend you to organize any kind of experiments even if you have an opportunity to find so many mosquitos at a time. That can be really dangerous.

### Fact #4: The language

The first written language was created by the Mayans, Chinese, Sumerians, and Egyptians independently. It means that they didn’t know the one about another and they didn’t do it mutually. Mind this fact when looking for the topic and the history essay help online. You don’t really have to know any of them, so just indicate this fact in the text.

### Fact #5: An apple

If we had an opportunity to get rid of all the space from the atoms that we all are made of and all the things are made of, we would fit into one single apple. Just imagine how important an empty space is. Can you imagine all of us in only one apple? We have tried even to draw a picture of all the people and things in mind, but it seems unreal. What about you? Can you imagine this?

### Fact #6: The honey

You can eat honey no matter how old it is. It cannot spoil and it’s good for eating even if it’s about 2,000 years old. Don’t believe it? Just try it. Of course, the production process plays a great role here. If there were some mistakes, honey will spoil. So you can wait for about a few hundred years to see if your honey is of high quality. Don’t take all the words too seriously as we’re joking. But if you find honey at your grandparents’ place, you can freely eat it.

## Conclusion

You may have known these facts already, but there are a lot of other things that can be discovered. They are all around us. If you truly wish to find something and uncover it, you should start with the most used things. For example, analyze your day and think of what you are doing right after waking up. If you drink coffee, you can find out how it influences your body in one minute and one hour after you take it. Just turn around and start noticing even the slightest details.
