I think it's still interesting to learn though. ^^; One of those weird facts that may not be commonly known. I like those kinds of factoids.

That kind of reminds me of that fact I read about how many bugs or spiders we consume during our life while we sleep, though I don't remember how many it was.

Then I won't tell you just how many it is by estimate lol. 
Here is a better did-you-know fact: Bananas are radioactive. Due to being rich in potassium, every banana is actually slightly radioactive thanks to containing the natural isotope potassium-40. Interestingly, your body contains around 16mg of potassium-40, meaning you’re around 280 times more radioactive than a banana already.

Now that was an interesting did-you-know-fact. 🙂

I like bananas and have one with my lunch every day, unless I go out and take a packed lunch. 🍌

Uh~OHHHH AnimeDragon is radioactive 😱 Though I guess we all are according to that fact. Bananas are great though. It's one of the only dried things I like to eat. I could eat about 500 dried banana slices lol ~

I guess we're all radioactive, but I think we're OK as long as we don't start glowing in the dark 😱. Dried fruit seems to be quite a popular thing, but I've never really liked it.

If I start glowing in the dark I would appreciate it if no one starts to use me as a glowstick, I have never actually liked any dried fruit either but I do like nuts that always seems to come with dried fruit trays.

I won't use you as a glow stick. I haven't even seen one of those in a long time. Although I only get out of the house... uhh... not so often...

I used to like playing with those things especially the glow in the dark kind of necklaces you get at events. I always wanted to chop them open and see what was inside them o_o

I've never been able to go to events or anything because of my reluctance to leave the house or even socialize where I live. My big sister has, a lot of times. I'm not even sure if she would be able to keep track of how many events she went to. She had more fun than I ever could, that's for sure because my definition of fun was playing games. ^^;

They contain two liquids that glow due to a chemical reaction between them. The liquids aren't poisonous or toxic but can cause a skin irritation and will give you a stomach ache if you swallow them.

I can understand that. While I go out quite a lot I dislike going to parties and such like because I have difficulty socialising and talking to people I've not met before. When I was younger I used to dread being invited to other children's birthday parties. When I got a bit older I told my parents that I did not want big birthday parties I just wanted two or three of my friends round for tea.

I don't have much difficulty socializing but I don't like parties even myself. I prefer the quietness of myself and a few friends at most.

I'd like to have friends out here, but no matter who I meet outside where I live all I encounter are rude people that assume far too much about me. Maybe if I got out more I'd meet better people out there if I went outside more, but I literally have no means of doing that. Or really want to after meeting so many rude jerks out there.

I don't have friends out here. I had one good friend in middle school, but we've fallen out of touch over the years and I'm not sure if he'd even remember me these days. I don't leave much of an impression on people.

I'm sure some day you will meet some people IRL that end up being good friends with you too because you are a pretty nice person online so I think you would be just as nice IRL. Just need to find people that would value you as a friend!

I just tried that too and now I feel weird for it xD The thought to try that never would have even crossed my mind.

I tried it also to verify before I posted the fact. Did you know that you also can't lick your elbow?

Yes, I'd heard that one before, although I'm not sure why I'd want to lick my elbow.

Since we were discussing bananas recently I found this curious fact:

Bananas are berries, but strawberries are not. Botanically speaking, bananas are classified as berries, while strawberries are not because their seeds are on the outside.

Not me practically breaking my arm trying to lick my elbow for a good 2 minutes lmao ~

I have heard that before (about the strawberries)! I actually had that discussion with my mom a few months ago and we were both super confused to find out that strawberries weren't berries lol but I didn't know that bananas were berries 😱 That makes me question everything, especially everything I think is a fruit or vegetable. To be honest, I don't even know what I thought bananas were...

I've always assumed that strawberries were created by the same drunken deity that created the platypus and the hallucigenia.  The strawberry used to be a perfectly ordinary berry but one day for some unknown reason this deity twisted the poor berry through another dimension and suddenly it found itself with its seeds on the outside

You really can't hum with your nose closed.

You can, just not for long.  Maybe about half a second.  Ask me how I know.  :D 

Hey, at least I didn't try to lick my elbow!  This time.  (I'd heard that one before.)

We don't need to ask. We know because we've tried to do it. And failed. 😀
