I love this Pythagoras' theorem liquid squares. It should be in every middle school math class.
McDonalds calls frequent customers heavy users.
How much do clouds weigh?
UP TO 1.1 MILLION POUNDS!
Is that why I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders every time it rains (or snows)?
The average person walks the equivalent of five times around the world in a lifetime.
The average moderately active person take around 7,500 step/day. If you maintain that daily average and live until 80 years of age, you’ll have walked about 216,262,500 steps in your lifetime.
Doing the math : the average person with the average stride living until 80 will walk a distance of around 110,000 miles. This is the equivalent of walking about 5 times around the Earth, right on the equator.
No wonder I'm so tired. Is this the reason the earth rotates.
We should organize a day when everyone walks in the same direction, and see what happens.
We should all walk the opposite direction of the spin off the Earth.
I think it would be more interesting if all of humanity jumped at a specified time of day, say noon in their respective time zone, every day for a month. Could we move the Earth further from the sun?
That may just be the solution to global warming! HaHaHa!
Math is slightly off, but still an impressive number.
In a room of only 23 people, there is a 50-50 chance of two people having the same birthday.
And in a room of 75, there’s a 99.9% chance !
These numbers seem way too low, and that's called the Birthday Paradox - it's counter-intuitive, but completely true.
Here is how it works :
I don't think it's counter-intuitive, but that's just me lol.
It's literally math by inclusion, rather than exclusion. Adding more to the group, for the purpose of finding commonality between them, increases the likelihood that you'd find that commonality.
When I was very young, I saw an episode of "Truth or Consequences" where Bob Barker did this by saying that he could pick anyone in the audience and someone else in the audience would have the same birthday.
You’re more likely to find someone attractive if they look like your opposite-sex parent!
Fascinating isn't it? Everyone wants to fuck their family. I thought this little tidbit would be a prime time did you know fact for a site like this!
This is quite fascinating!
No wonder I have flat feet.Hehehehehe.
It amazes me what I can learn in an incest forum. Thanks to all.
Your sources indicate that a high percentage of people are attracted to individuals that resemble a parent of the opposite sex as themselves. Are you equating this as being attracted to said parental figure?
