The Morning Read: 20 Things You Probably Don't Know

I actually don't know these facts either! 

But how trustable are these facts? 

I have no ideas, too. But, how do I get to know these? 


Reading is always fun, though. Just read and keep enlarging your knowledge. Don't die, knowing less things. Reading doesn't cost much. 

So, today I got up, like, at 4 am while the dawn was setting its foot into the sky. Well, I think I have reasons now to start getting up early. Well, more contents on that in the next post and it is almost 2014 and I need to do something, something really something. 

The fact is I had to finish some work and, apart from that, do some morning reading, which I believe is good for myself. 

When it comes to reading, it's crazy. I just feel like: ain't nobody have time for that? Yet, it is a piercing truth that reading is good for one. 

So I read. Books? Hell, no! Not enough time, these days. I do mostly blogs, news, online articles, newspaper, magazine, and some kind of reports. 

So here goes the 20 things you might not know: 

1. Your shoes are the first thing people subconsciously notice about you. Wear nice shoes.

2. If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance you'll die within the next 3 years

3. There are at least 6 people in the world who look exactly like you. There's a 9% chance that you'll meet one of them in your lifetime.

4. Sleeping without a pillow reduces back pain and keeps your spine stronger.

5. A person’s height is determined by their father, and their weight is determined by their mother.

6. If a part of your body "falls asleep",

you can almost always "wake it up" by shaking your head.

7. There are three things the human brain cannot resist noticing - Food, attractive people and danger

8. Right-handed people tend to chew food on their right side

9. Putting dry tea bags in gym bags or smelly shoes will absorb the unpleasant odour.

10. According to Albert Einstein, if honey bees were to disappear from earth, humans would be dead within 4 years.

11. There are so many kind of apples, that if you ate a new one everyday, it would take over 20 years to try them all.

12. You can survive without eating for weeks, but you will only live 11 days without sleeping.

13. People who laugh a lot are healthier than those who don’t.

14. Laziness and inactivity kills just as many people as smoking.

15. A human brain has a capacity to store 5 times as much information as Wikipedia

16. Our brain uses same amount power as 10-watt light bulb!!

17. Our body gives enough heat in 30 mins to boil 1.5 litres of water!!

18. The Ovum egg is the largest cell and the sperm is the smallest cell !!

19. Stomach acid (conc. HCl) is strong enough to dissolve razor blades!!

20. SMILE. It is the ultimate antidepressant.

So, informative, right? Like said, don't die knowing less things. If you do, good lucks. 

And, of all the things this one get me the best: If you sit for more than 11 hours a day, there's a 50% chance you'll die within the next 3 years.

Isn't that what I'm doing these days? Duh, I should rethink balancing my life. That, you know remind me of this Indonesian copywriter (RIP to her) an auditor who pass from overworking. 

It seems all to talk (write). It's gonna be another hectic day for me again but, well, I will take some time for relaxing, for whoever's sake who think of me.  

Good morning from Cambodia by the way.
