Rowling’s birthday is also July 31 – but in 1966. The actress who played Moaning Myrtle was 37 years old at the time “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” was filmed. She is the oldest actress to ever portray a Hogwarts student. Ron Weasley’s character originally swore a lot, but Rowling’s publisher wouldn’t let her use that sort of language because it would’ve been inappropriate for young readers. Rowling’s publisher suggested she use initials rather than her real name, “Joanne Rowling,” in order to appeal to male readers. She chose J.K., borrowing the “K” from her grandmother’s name, Kathleen. However, neither “Kathleen” nor “K” is part of her legal name. Only Alan Rickman, the actor who played Professor Snape, knew his character’s fate before the release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” because Rowling told him. Rowling said the inspiration for the name of Harry’s school in the books, “Hogwarts,” may have unconsciously come from the name of a plant she saw in the Kew Gardens in New York City. Rupert Grint dressed up like his female drama teacher and rapped about Ron Weasley for his audition tape. His rap began, “Hello, my name is Rupert Grint, I hope you don’t think I stink.” Contrary to popular belief, the ‘t’ at the end of Voldemort is silent. The name comes from the French words meaning “flight of death.” J.K. Rowling slightly based 11-year-old Hermione on herself at the same age. She even made Hermione’s patronus her favorite animal, an otter.

25 Ways To Tell If Someone Is Lying To You

You can never completely tell when someone is lying. Not even a lie detector can do that. Do you understand what that means? That means that not a single one of the tips we are about to give should ever be used to determine that someone is lying without reservation. Even if someone does all 25 of these things they still may be innocent. The power of circumstance cannot be overestimated and people have even been known to give false confessions because they were being pressured to “tell the truth”. With that said, there are certain things you can look for that might arouse your suspicions. These are 25 ways to tell if someone is lying to you. Sort of.

Possibly because they are aware that liars are known to avoid eye contact. We know, it's confusing. A liar tends to provide more information than necessary, or to answer questions that they weren't even asked in the first place. This may come from a desire to justify oneself A genuine shrug indicating uncertainty is usually complete and symmetrical. A partial shrug may indicate deception For potentially obvious reasons liars are likely to stutter. It's hard to talk straight when you're making things up as you go! A liar tends not to use contractions. For example, "I didn't do it" statistically tends to be a more truthful statement that "I did not do it" and more...

These are 25 interesting things you didn't know about George Washington. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-interesting-things-you-didnt-know-about-george-washington/ Here's a preview: He started school at 6 years old and left at 15 to become a surveyor because his family was too poor to afford education At 26 he married Martha Custis who already had two children. Washington never had any kids of his own At 6 ft 2 in and 200 pounds he was one of the biggest presidents He had numerous toothaches so when he was 57 he had all his teeth pulled and from then on he wore false teeth Research performed on a set of Washington's dentures in 2005 showed they were made of gold, ivory, lead, and human and animal teeth Before fighting against the British he actually fought for the British against the French in Ohio and lost He actually lost most of his battles and according to some sources he was the losingest victorious general in modern history Many myths about George, including the one about the cherry tree can be traced back to a biography written by Parson Weems shortly after Washington died. Weems was known for telling tall tales Washington is the richest president ever and in today's dollars his assets would be worth roughly $500 million At 67 years old Washington came down with a cold and was dead within 48 hours. It has been theorized that he died due to medical malpractice as he was subject to four rounds of bloodletting Washington came out of retirement to lead the nation's military in 1798 against the French Washington made a style of whiskey we would consider "moonshine" today, which is why there are so many rumors about him being a moonshiner He paid taxes, however, and had a license, so he was actually considered a distiller At one point in time his distillery produced 11,000 gallons of whiskey in one year He also grew hemp as a cash crop But it's not what you think, many farmers in that day grew and sold hemp because it was used to make rope, paper, and other products Washington was actually quite an agricultural innovator and supposedly introduced the idea of crop rotation He also allegedly introduced mules to America when he bred donkeys from the King of Spain with his own horses In a 2012 poll in Great Britain, General Washington was voted as the greatest military enemy to face the Empire--beating out even Napoleon He is the only president in American history to be unanimously elected to office He didn't have a middle name He didn't wear a wig. That's real hair in all of his pictures He was made an honorary citizen of France in 1792 He is the only president to have actually gone into battle while serving as president In 1976 he was posthumously rewarded the highest rank in the American military ever...General of the Armies of the United States

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was a wrestling champion? Or that Andrew Jackson was involved in over 100 duels? These are 25 things you probably didn't know about US presidents. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-things-you-probably-didnt-know-about-us-presidents/ Here's a preview: Abraham Lincoln was dangerous in a wrestling ring. He even made it to the Wrestling Hall of Fame John Tyler had 15 children, more than any other president. Two of his grandsons are still alive today. During his presidency, Franklin Pierce was arrested for running over a woman with his horse. Charges were later dropped due to a lack of evidence. In his youth, Andrew Johnson apprenticed as a tailor. Even as president, he never stopped making his own suits. James Buchanan regularly bought slaves in Washington, D.C. and quietly freed them in Pennsylvania. Rutherford B. Hayes was the only president to be wounded in the Civil War — not once, but four times. Four horses were shot out from beneath him. The "S" in Harry S. Truman's full name doesn't stand for anything. His parents couldn't decide on a middle name for over a month, so they settled on the letter "S" in honor of his maternal grandfather, Solomon Young, and his paternal grandfather, Anderson Shipp Truman. William Taft — also known as "Big Bill" — was the largest president in American history. He once got himself wedged into the White House bathtub and had to call his advisers for help getting out. Herbert Hoover's son had two pet alligators, which were occasionally permitted to run loose throughout the White House. Chester A. Arthur was known for his impeccable attire, earning him the nickname "Elegant Arthur." As a matter of fact, on his last day in office, four women offered him their hands in marriage. Not only was James Garfield ambidextrous — he could write Latin with one hand and Greek with the other at the same time. While serving as sheriff of Erie County, N.Y., Grover Cleveland had to spring the trap at a hanging on two occassions. This earned him the unflattering nickname "Buffalo Hangman." A small tumor that was removed from the roof of Grover's mouth, resides at the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. Benjamin Harrison was the first president to have electricity in the White House. However, he was so scared of getting electrocuted that he would never touch the light switches himself. Calvin Coolidge would occasionally press all the buttons in the Oval Office, sending bells ringing throughout the White House — and then hide to watch his staff run in. Apparently he just wanted to see who was working. Teddy Roosevelt was shot in an assassination attempt while delivering a speech in Milwaukee. "I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot," he told the stunned audience. "I give you my word, I do not care a rap about being shot; not a rap." He completed the 90-minute speech with the bullet still lodged in his chest. Obama's high school nickname on the basketball team was "Barry O'Bomber" Eisenhower played a big role in popularizing golf. He installed a putting green at the White House and played more than 800 rounds while in office — exceeding the record of any other president. On Sept. 2, 1944, George H W Bush was flying over Japan when his aircraft was shot down in the Pacific. Bush and another crewman were able to bail out, but the other man's parachute malfunctioned, and he went down with the plane. Bush was eventually rescued by a submarine off the coast of Chichi-jima. William McKinley almost always wore a red carnation on his lapel as a good luck charm. While greeting a line of people in 1901, he gave the flower to a little girl. Seconds later, he was shot by an assassin, and died eight days later. JFK was a huge James Bond fan. He first met the author of the series, Ian Fleming, at a dinner party in 1960. They allegedly bounced around ideas about how to get rid of Fidel Castro. Andrew Jackson was involved in as many as 100 duels, most of which were fought to defend the honor of his wife. Not surprisingly he was shot multiple times during his life. Gerald Ford worked as a fashion model during college, appearing on the cover of Cosmopolitan. Woodrow Wilson's face is on the $100,000 bill, which very few have ever laid hands on. The bills were mainly designed for trade between between Federal Reserve banks, but fell out of use with the invention of the wire transfer. Jimmy Carter filed a report for a UFO sighting in 1973. He called it "the darndest thing I've ever seen."

25 Cool And Absolutely Extraordinary Elephant Facts
 
04:53
Scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia, elephants are the world´s largest land animals. Traditionally, two species of these amazing giants are recognized, the African elephant and the Asian elephant. Because of numerous reasons such as poaching or habitat destruction, the world´s population of elephants has been drastically decreasing. African elephants are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, while the Asian elephant is classed as endangered. To raise awareness of these beautiful, intelligent and peaceful mammals, we made a list of 25 little known elephant facts. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the written list - http://list25.com/25-cool-and-absolutely-extraordinary-elephant-facts/ Here's a preview: Elephants love water. They like to swim, dive into the water and find great fun in fighting the waves. It also gives their joints a break with the buoyancy they get from the water. Elephant females can have babies until they are about 50 years old. They tend to have a new baby every 2 and half to 4 years. They usually have one baby, twins are very rare. Stories of African elephants getting drunk from the fermented marula fruit are not true. The animals don’t eat the fruit off the ground where it ferments, and even if they did, it would take about 1,400 pieces to get one elephant drunk. The main reason why elephants are massively killed by poachers is their tusks. Although scientific researches proved the ivory consists of dentine, a tissue that is similar to bone and has no special effects or qualities. Although the elephant trunk is really huge, weighing about 400 pounds, it is so dexterous it can pick up very tiny things including a single grain of rice. An Elephant’s skin is so sensitive that they can feel a fly landing on it. Newborn elephants can stand up shortly after the birth. They are born blind, weighing up to 260 pounds. From ancient times, elephants have been used as working animals for various tasks. Since bulls can be difficult and dangerous to work with, they have often been chained and sometimes even abused. Historically, elephants were also considered even formidable instruments of war. Disgusting way of exploitation of these naturally peaceful creatures. [...]

25 Things Fast Food Restaurants Don't Want You To Know
 
03:44
Although this probably won't keep you from eating your favorite fast "food", they say knowledge is power. So at least you can eat it powerfully. These are 25 things fast food restaurants don't want you to know. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-fast-food-restaurants/ Here's a preview: Those grill marks on your burger aren't real. They were put there by the factory. If you want to make sure your french fries are fresh order them without salt. It will force us to cook a new batch. Then you can add your own salt. Our chili is just made out of meat from old burgers. Those salads you're ordering have nearly just as many calories as one Big Mac One way to measure the cleanliness of a fast food restaurant is to look up into the ice chute of the drink dispenser. You'll be surprised how often you can find mold up there. Actually, nearly 50% of restaurant fountain drink dispensers have fecal bacteria on them. Those pictures of our food you see in advertisements are airbrushed and touched up with fiberglass. It takes two hours just to set up one hamburger. In restaurant kitchens more people follow the 10 second rule than you'd like to think. We throw away an incredible amount of food every night. At some places, like Taco Bell, the food carries over. So guess what we serve you in the morning? Even restaurants from the same chain can have vastly different standards and quality. It usually depends upon the management. We're supposed to wear gloves when we prepare food but most of the time nobody follows that rule. If you look around the parking lot, dining area, or bathroom and see a lot of trash what do think the less visible places (like the kitchen) look like? In 1970 only $6 billion was spent on fast food. Today it is nearly $200 billion. Our soft drinks are marked up by nearly 1200%. The syrup in your coke only cost us a couple pennies. Our milkshakes can easily contain over 50 different kinds of chemicals. We fill our food with high fructose corn syrup because it's a cheap sweetener. It also tricks your body into wanting more of it. In many places, just before close, all the coffee is decaf whether your ordered it with caffeine or not. This is because nobody wants to clean two different coffee pots. Be carefull with the lemons in your drink. Everybody touches them and nobody washes them. They just get cut up and laid out. As a cashier I'm not allowed to tell you how many calories are in a particular dish even if I know. I'm supposed to say "All that information is available online". Those scrambled eggs are made out of powder Quite often our salads are made several days earlier and just sit on a tray in the refrigerator until someone orders them. One hamburger can easily contain meat from up to 100 different cows Fast food restaurants are one of the biggest exploiters of cheap domestic labor. They are usually actively engaged in anti union activities. We load our kid's meals with extra sugar to make them more appealing to kids. Even the pizza crust is not exempt.

25 Things That Your Pilot Won't Tell You
 
04:49
With big companies it's almost always about the bottom line. And airlines are generally big companies. While some of the following things are a bit disturbing, others are just laughable. These are 25 things that your pilot won't tell you but would if he could. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-things-that-your-pilot-wont-tell-you/ Here's a preview: No, you're not imagining things, airlines really have adjusted their flight times to give themselves a better track record of on-time arrivals. Most of the time, how you land is a good indicator of a pilot's skill. So if you want to say something nice to a pilot as you're getting off the plane, say 'Nice landing.' We do appreciate that. I'm constantly under pressure to carry less fuel than I'm comfortable with. Airlines are always looking at the bottom line, and you burn fuel carrying fuel At some airports with really short runways, you're not going to have a smooth landing no matter how good we are: John Wayne Airport; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Chicago Midway; and Reagan National. Sometimes the airline won't give us lunch breaks or even time to eat. We have to delay flights just so we can get food. There's no such thing as a water landing. It's called crashing into the ocean. Pilots find it perplexing that so many people are afraid of turbulence. It's all but impossible for turbulence to cause a crash. We avoid turbulence not because we're afraid the wing is going to fall off but because it's annoying. I've been struck by lightning twice. Most pilots have. Airplanes are built to take it. You hear a big boom and see a big flash and that's it. You're not going to fall out of the sky. There is no safest place to sit. In one accident, the people in the back are dead; in the next, it's the people up front. The smoothest place to sit is often over or near the wing. The bumpiest place to sit is in the back. A plane is like a seesaw. If you're in the middle, you don't move as much. If you're a nervous flier, book a morning flight. The heating of the ground later causes bumpier air, and it's much more likely to thunderstorm in the afternoon. We're not trying to ruin your fun by making you take off your headphones. We just want you to be able to hear us if there's an emergency. We ask you to put up the window shade so the flight attendants can see outside in an emergency, to assess if one side is better for an evacuation. It also lets light into the cabin if it goes dark and helps passengers get oriented if the plane flips or rolls over. Cold on the airplane? Tell your flight attendant. We're in a constant battle with them over the temperature. They're moving all the time, up and down the aisles, so they are always calling and saying, 'Turn up the air.' But most passengers I know are freezing.

25 Painfully Disturbing Facts About Human Trafficking
 
04:00
Did you know that there are more slaves today than ever before in history? These are 25 painfully disturbing facts about human trafficking. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-painfully-disturbing-facts-about-human-trafficking/ Here's a preview: The average cost of a slave in 2013 was between $90 and $100 In most regions, 80% of trafficking involves sexual exploitation The remaining 20% is generally for labor exploitation The number of slaves on Earth today is estimated between 20 and 30 million Nearly 1 million of them are moved across an international border every year on the black market 70% of those slaves are female 50% are children Behind drugs and weapons, human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry in the world It generates approximately $33 billion ever year Over half of that comes from industrialized countries Even for purposes of labor exploitation, women still constitute over half of Earth's enslaved population Organ harvesting is another seldom mentioned but quickly growing industry that benefits from human trafficking An estimated 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, torture, and neglect Eighty percent of those sold into sexual slavery are under 24, and some are as young as six years old Ludwig "Tarzan" Fainberg, a convicted trafficker, said, "You can buy a woman for $10,000 and make your money back in a week if she is pretty and young. Then everything else is profit A 2003 study in the Netherlands found that, on average, a single sex slave earned her pimp at least $250,000 a year A human trafficker can earn 20 times what he or she paid for a girl. Provided the girl was not physically brutalized to the point of ruining her beauty, the pimp could sell her again for a greater price because he had trained her and broken her spirit, which saves future buyers the hassle The end of the Cold War has resulted in the growth of regional conflicts and the decline of borders. Many rebel groups turn to human trafficking to fund military actions and garner soldiers. According to a 2009 Washington Times article, the Taliban buys children as young as seven years old to act as suicide bombers. The price for child suicide bombers is between $7,000-$14,000 UNICEF estimates that 300,000 children younger than 18 are currently trafficked to serve in armed conflicts worldwide Babies are sold on the black market, where the profit is divided between the traffickers, doctors, lawyers, border officials, and others. Researchers argue that as the economic crisis deepens, the number of people trafficked for forced labor will increase. Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises because it holds relatively low risk with high profit potential. Criminal organizations are increasingly attracted to human trafficking because, unlike drugs, humans can be sold repeatedly There are more slaves in the world today than ever before in history

25 Dumb Reasons School Children Have Been Suspended Or Arrested
 
09:34
Discipline (whether at home or in school) is very important for a child’s development and helps teach an individual from a young age to be responsible and respectful. Furthermore, discipline promotes good human behavior which improve society and make it a more pleasant world for everyone. On the other hand, various studies have shown that a lack of it (at home or in school) leads to disastrous behavioral consequences which ultimately may lead to a pitiful and destructive upbringing. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that discipline and order in a classroom are important. Discipline in the classroom is mostly left to the teacher, however, schools also have a discipline policy which staff must abide by. Thus, it’s important to understand the challenges faced by school administrators in finding equitable solutions to discipline problems. Still, in some instances, some schools have gone a bit overboard with their solutions. What's worse is that these solutions end up not working and also bringing about the opposite of the intended result. Schoolchildren have been arrested for talking on the phone, burping, and even scribbling on desks! Though these actions should by no means be encouraged, you could argue that arresting a student might be taking discipline a bit far. What do you think?

25 Interesting Things You Didn't Know About World War II

From the Nazis stealing the Harvard fight song to a 12 year old soldier who won a purple heart here are 25 interesting things you didn't know about World War II. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-interesting-things-you-probably-didnt-know-about-world-war-ii/ Here's a preview: For every five German soldiers who died in WWII, four of them died on the Eastern Front Eighty percent of Soviet males born in 1923 didn't survive the war World War II was the most destructive conflict in history. It cost more money, damaged more property, and killed more people than any other war ever Max Heiliger was the fictitious name the SS used to establish a bank account in which they deposited money, gold, and jewels taken from European Jews. The original abbreviation of the National Socialist Party was Nasos. The word "Nazi" derives from a Bavarian word that means "simple minded" and was first used as a term of derision by journalist Konrad Heiden In 1935, British engineer Robert Watson-Watt was working on a "death ray" that would destroy enemy aircraft using radio waves. His "death ray" instead evolved into radar—or "radio detection and ranging. Out of the 40,000 men who served on U-boats during WWII, only 10,000 returned. More Russians (military and civilians) lost their lives during the Siege of Leningrad than did American and British soldiers combined in all of WWII. From 1940-1945, the U.S. defense budget increased from $1.9 billion to $59.8 billion.

25 Interesting Things You Didn't Know About Napoleon Bonaparte

Did you know that to this day it is illegal to name a pig "Napoleon" in France? These are 25 interesting things you didn't know about Napoleon Bonaparte. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the text version too! - http://list25.com/25-interesting-things-you-didnt-know-about-napoleon-bonaparte/ Here's a preview: His parents and close acquaintences called him by his nickname, Nabulio Perhaps not surprisingly, as a child he was very good at math but had aweful social skills and was very domineering It was suggested by his teachers that he join the military It was known that Napoleon had "Ailurophobia", meaning he was afraid of cats. He is famous for his allegedly short stature, however he was about 1.70 m, an average height during those times The reason for the confusion could have been because the height recorded on his death was 5 ft 2 in French units...which translates to about 5 foot 6 today He also liked to surround himself with extremely tall soldiers from the Elite Guard which could have contributed to a short appearance It is still illegal to this day for anyone to name a pig Napoleon in France For this reason, if you read the book Animal Farm in French, the pig will be named Cesar instead of Napoleon For most of history, traffic kept to the left side of road. According to historians, Napoleon, for whatever reason, played a crucial role in shifting that paradigm throughout Europe Well, at least everywhere except the UK, which he never conquered Napoleon was famously beaten in chess by the Turk, a fake chess playing machine that actually had a person hiding inside of it. Napoleon didn't know that though. He would often dress in poor clothes and walk the streets of Paris asking people questions. This way he could judge how popular he was. His wife's real name was Marie Josephe Rose Tascher de la Pagerie Napoleon didn't like it so he renamed her Josephine

25 Reasons Why Fear Of Flying Is Plane Silly
 
05:06
We’ve all heard it said that traveling by air is safe. Statistics more than back up this claim. However, there are still some people out there who are absolutely terrified of flying. So terrified in fact, that some people go through some major anxiety attacks just thinking of the possibility of hoping on a plane. Are you one of these people and are you about to go on a trip somewhere? Then you’ve come to the right place. Although we won’t claim to be able to rid you of your flight anxiety, we just might be able to reduce it a bit. These are 25 Reasons Why Fear Of Flying Is Plane Silly (see what we did there, fear of flying…plane silly). Follow us on: Twitter: https://twitter.com/list25 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/list25 Website: http://list25.com Instagram: https://instagram.com/list25/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/list25/ See, flying is not so scary when you are aware of these facts and statistics: First of all, there are more than 10,000 planes in the air right now There are about 100,000 passenger flights scheduled every single day That's not even counting military, cargo, air taxis, and general aviation According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, in the United States alone 1.73 million people boarded flights every single day in 2010 Actually, flying is by far the safest form of travel You are 22 times more likely to be in an accident on the way to the airport in your car than you are during your flight Actually, if you do die on an airplane, it's more likely that you'll die of a heart attack or even choking on your food than falling out of the sky To be honest, even walking is more dangerous. According to the National Safety Council walking is one of the most dangerous modes of transport in terms of fatal accidents Going back to driving and car accidents, how often do you inspect your car? If ever? Well, planes are inspected constantly. After every single flight. Turbulence is actually not dangerous. Planes are no more likely to fall from the sky during heavy turbulence than in otherwise normal conditions And lightning strikes? Most airliners get hit on average every couple years but you wouldn't even know it. Actually, you're more likely to die getting hit by lightning on your way to get into your car to go to the airport To really blow your mind, you have a greater chance of dying by falling out of your bed Ok, let's put it this way, every year hippos kill more people than planes do In 2013 three billion people flew on airplanes. That's half the world's population. There were only 210 fatalities As humans, we tend to remember the catastrophes and forget everything else, so our memories are very biased Consider that most accidents happen during takeoff and landing. And the vast majority of those accidents are anything but fatal. Furthermore, consider that planes are lining up in front of you and behind you to takeoff The runway you are on has most likely seen constant use since its construction without a single accident Your pilot and copilot and entire flight staff have flown most of their careers and will continue flying for the rest of their careers The reason that these statistics will not make you feel any better is because your brain will release stress hormones as soon as you feel that little bit of turbulence And you will quickly forget these statistics. But you know what? We'll try one more anyway. You probably think that when you get in a car crash you have a good chance of surviving but as soon as the plane starts going down you're doomed right? Wrong. Even if you do somehow manage to get in a plane crash (you won't), you will almost certainly survive. Between 1993 and 2000 there were 568 plane crashes in the US involving 53,487 people. 51,207 survived. Actually, even on the worst 26 crashes, more than half of the passengers survived. See? We told you that your fear was just plane silly. If you though these fear of flying statistics were plane silly, check out these videos: 25 Most Terrifying Sea Creatures - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQP5yV9yxFc&index=31&list=PL3Ikn3SKdJHh3ydUUZpusjBVgt3PTPmeH and 25 Cool And Absolutely Extraordinary Dolphin Facts - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNktvAFQgf8&list=PL3Ikn3SKdJHh3ydUUZpusjBVgt3PTPmeH&index=103

25 Useless Facts About Space That Are Still Cool To Know

Suggested by Delta Monkeys and chris argyropoulos Space is awesome, even astonishing, and there are many reasons to be excited about the discoveries which have already been made and continue to be made in the great beyond. But, this list isn't about the wonders of space or how cool the universe around us is. Rather, it's about a host of facts which are completely useless, random, or mostly irrelevant. (Though, if you're an amateur astronomer, you're likely to find all of these to be cool facts.) Did you know South Korea spent a million dollars just to make a stench-free plate of kimchi? How about how many human remains have been launched out among the stars? Or that a vapor cloud with water 140 trillion times more massive than all the water in our oceans combined exists? From the cost of a NASA space suit to a planet which is a massive engagement ring, there are plenty of facts we've learned about space that haven't really furthered our discovery or which are just plain pointless.

25 Conspiracy Theories That Actually Ended Up Being True

We’ve all had friends and family that are really into the conspiracy stuff. You know, the ones that send you emails with blazing red headlines proclaiming how 9/11 was an inside job and the president is actually a KGB agent and the KGB works for the CIA and it’s the connections bro, the connections. Ok, that’s not what we’re doing here. But while most conspiracy theories you hear about are probably pretty bogus, there are a few that are actually worth knowing about. These are 25 conspiracy theories that actually ended up being true. Speaking of conspiracies, have you heard the one about the Nazis creating a nuclear bomb on the 14th of July?

But what's even crazier, is that they were actually true.: The 1919 World Series was thrown Often referred to as the Black Sox Scandal, eight White Sox players were accused of throwing the World Series in 1919. When the story broke late in 1920, the players were acquitted because throwing games wasn’t technically a crime. The government poisoned alcohol during prohibition When people continued to drink after alcohol was banned, the government basically tried to prevent moonshiners from cooking up more alcohol by “spoiling” their ingredients. Because the moonshiners didn’t stop, many of them ended up getting sick and even dying. Car companies bought up and destroyed streetcars According to a report done by Congress in 1974, car companies bought up and then destroyed many of the street car and rail connections in the United States in the 1930s in order to increase demand for cars. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you were stuck in traffic this morning. Area 51 is a top secret military installation In July 2013, following a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request that was filed in 2005, the CIA publicly acknowledged the existence of Area 51 for the first time. French soldier Alfred Dreyfus was framed Known today as the Dreyfus Affair, Alfred Dreyfus, a French soldier, was accused of treason in 1894 for selling secrets to Germany. In 1906 Dreyfus was finally pardoned and it was revealed that he was in fact a scapegoat. The real traitor had been quietly acquitted but due to Dreyfus’s Jewish heritage he made an easy target. and more... Can't get enough of conspiracy theories? Here's some more...

25 Interesting Facts About Northern Lights You Should Know Before You See Them
 
05:17
Officially known as Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights are one of nature's most spectacular visual phenomena. Appearing in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, curtains or shooting rays, the northern lights' amazing light display can be observed in the sky of high latitude regions such as Norway or Canada. You might know the cause of this natural phenomenon (collision of solar wind and magnetospheric charged particles) but there are many more interesting facts about this unreal spectacle that are worth learning. Here are 25 of them, illustrated with some of the most amazing Northern Lights pictures you have ever seen. https://twitter.com/list25 https://www.facebook.com/list25 http://list25.com Check out the physical list here for some extra info and explanations - http://list25.com/25-interesting-facts-about-northern-lights-you-should-know-before-you-see-them/ And now for a quick preview: The most spectacular Northern Lights in recent recorded history are considered those from the "Great geomagnetic storm" on 28 August and 2 September 1859. Studies have shown that a solar storm of this magnitude occurring today would likely cause widespread problems for modern civilization. Astronauts on board the International Space Station are at the same altitude as the Northern Lights and see them from the side. The Southern Lights offer the same visual display as the Northern Lights but since the South Pole is even more inhospitable and inaccessible than the North Pole, it is more difficult to view the Southern Aurora. Therefore, the Northern Lights are more popular and get almost all the attention. There are several towns famous for their great conditions for watching the Northern Lights. In North America, the aurora tourism capital is Yellowknife (Northwest Territories, Canada), while Tromso (Northern Norway) is the same for Europe. There have been many legends about the Northern Lights. Some North American Inuit tribes call the aurora „aqsarniit“ (meaning “football players”) thinking it is the spirits of the dead playing football with a head of a walrus. The colors of the Northern Lights depend on what gas is involved and how high in the ionosphere the reaction takes place. Blue and green lights form at lower altitudes while red color comes from the highest altitudes. Auroras tend to be more frequent and spectacular during high solar sunspot activity, which cycles over approximately eleven years. The last climax was in 2013. [...]

For this list, we have scoured the latest in space news to bring you some of the most recent and amazing discoveries scientists have made about space. From a cosmic collision which produced tons of gold to a star which is basically a massive diamond, the space discoveries we have made in the past decade have pushed our understanding to new heights.

25 RULES To Follow When Living With ROOMMATES
 
09:47
At some point in our lives, it's likely we will live with other adults in a roommate type situation. This is actually a really good thing, as roommates help you grow as a person and living with others reveals a lot about ourselves. However, things can also get frustrating at times as everyone comes in with different expectations. The very best advice is to not take things personally, and have frequent and open communication. After that, here are 25 Rules To Follow When Living With Roommates. 25 Rules To Follow When Living With Roommates | List25 Talk about who takes showers when, and be considerate with the hot water. The sounds of, ahem, adult intimacy, are only enjoyable for those directly involved. Don't borrow things without asking. Ever. Refill the toilet paper roll when it's out. Don't gossip or talk trash about your roommate. Do not expect your roommates to either join you, or vanish, when you have friends over. Don't get your feelings hurt if your roommate doesn't want to be your BFF. Take turns taking out the trash. Everyone takes care of their own pets. Send a postcard (or bring home a small present!) when you go on vacation. Observe quiet hours. If you have a filtering water pitcher, such as a Britta, REFILL IT WHEN YOU POUR YOURSELF A GLASS. Figure out what to do if someone forgets their keys and gets locked out. Consider drafting a roommate agreement that all parties sign the day you move in, that clearly states some the "rules" everyone one agrees on. Does cooking mean you do the dishes yourself, or if you cook and your roommate partakes does that mean they automatically must do the dishes? What are the consequences of not doing your chores, aside from living in a dirty house and putting more work onto your roommates? Don't smoke in the house. Feel free to splurge on a maid service if you're both in agreement on it, and include it with your monthly bills. Agree to thermostat temps, put it in writing, and if you must, tape it to the wall beside the thermostat. Your significant other spending the night now and then is one thing. A dead plant is not a decorative plant and should be removed post haste. If you live in a dorm, you and your roommate both need to study. When it comes to decorating a communal space such as the living room or kitchen, remember those spaces are SHARED and should reflect everyone living in the house, not just one person. Discuss if there's communal food and what the rules are. Set expectations! Want more?
