∫ Experiments show that male rhesus macaque monkeys will pay to look at pictures of female rhesus macaques’ bottoms.

∫ There is a glacier called “Blood Falls” in Antarctica that regularly pours out red liquid, making it look like the ice is bleeding. (It’s actually oxidised salty water.)

∫ The Romans used to clean and whiten their teeth with urine. Apparently it works. Please don’t do it, though.

∫ There are around 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. If you took them all out and laid them end to end, they’d stretch around the world more than twice. But, seriously, don’t do that either.
