Yes, it’s a fact!

Yesterday I stubled across this fact or whatever you may call it that there’s a phobia called Anatidaephobia; which is the fear that somewhere in the world, there is a duck watching you, and don’t even let me get started on that! I think the discussion on my Facebook status was enough unless you want me to ramble about it again here. So,this arose my curiosity about other bizarre and supposedly true facts I may find. smart bunny

Fact #1
“Adolf Hitler wanted to be an architect, but he failed the entrance exam at the architectural school in Vienna.”

Wow!! 😐 No wonder he’s so mad!  He’s dad should have told him that fate has other stuff planned for him and he shouldn’t be that mad. AND Someone should have told the people at the architectural school about the consequences of denying one single person like him! Imagine  if he would have been accepted. The Germans might have had an architect who designs buildings that emit hatred in someway I guess! And that’s if companies accepted his designs and if not I guess He’s gonna turn mad “again” and become the president, again.So, maybe the wars will be delayed for a bit.

Fact #2
“In Russia, when flowers are given for a romantic occasions, flowers are given in odds numbers as even number of flowers is given at funerals only.”
So if im in a funeral and some one gives me a large number of flowers Im gonna make sure to count them to see if that person made the mistake of adding/forgetting a single flower and made it an even number. Shame on him!! 


Fact #3

“In 1958, the Crayola crayon color “Prussian Blue” was changed to “Midnight Blue” by the request of teachers as kids could not relate to Prussian history.”

As trivial as it might sound, changing a name of color. At least, it’s good to know that teacher actually payed attention at some point to what problems kids might face its not about coming to school taking some lessons that you’re gonna probably forget 95% of them ever existed and the other 5% you’re gonna struggle to keep remembering them. But wait, since when do kids read the name written on a crayon? Are there even names written on each crayon?! This makes me wanna go buy a crayola box and check for myself! I remember when i used to be a kid I didn’t copy the crappy colors suggested for each picture I just pick my favorite color from the box and start coloring! And if it’s blue its called BLUE and if there are different shades they’re called light blue and dark blue not MIDNIGHT blue! And I certainly don’t imagine two 5 year-old kids coloring and one telling the other, “Pass me the midnight blue, pwease!”

Fact #4
“In 1982, a cactus in Phoenix, Arizona killed a man. David Grundman fired two shotgun blasts at a giant saguaro cactus that ended up falling on top of him.”

Now why would he shoot a cactus 😐 Maybe he got into a big fight with his wife then he decided to go for a walk to steam off. He wanted to shoot something and he found the cactus in front of him.Hmm..maybe. Or maybe he was stranded in this place for too long and he was really thirsty so he decided to drink the liquid found in the cactus and he shot it to make holes..Nah, that’s not an interesting story. But why didn’t he run?? Maybe he just wanted to commit suicide? But who would expect a giant cactus to fall on him from TWO gunshots?! She2 3ageeb!

Fact #5
“In Japan, by the time man reaches the age of 60, he is commemorated with a special ceremony. This ceremony features the man wearing a red kimono, which denotes that he no longer has the responsibilities of being a mature adult.”

Interesting, so maybe when I reach my forties or something and I’m sitting with my friends saying that there are many things I wish I had done when I was a little kid, she’s gonna tell me, “Relax! You still have a second chance when you are sixty! : ) “

Fact #6
“Chewing gums are illegal in Singapore.”

You may wanna read it again because unfortunately it’s true! Gums arent allowed because as I found on Wikipedia, ” Chewing gum was causing serious maintenance problems in high-rise public-housing flats, with vandals disposing of spent gum in mailboxes, inside keyholes and even on elevator buttons. Chewing gum left on floors, stairways and pavements in public areas increased the cost of cleaning and damaged cleaning equipment. Gum stuck on the seats of public buses was also considered a problem.”

I do agree that I hate finding gum sticking under a desk or on my shoe and I dont chew gum that much but COME ON PEOPLE!! Everyone needs to chew a gum every now and then! I especially like to chew gum before and during an exam as it’s said reduces the levels of stress. These people are missing all the times when a friend of yours is blowing a bubble and you burst it and it sticks on that person’s face! And the kids, think about your kids! They won’t experience how it feels when they finally blow their first bubble with a chewing gum!And most importantly they won’t ever enjoy the taste of لبان غندور بالمستكة!!!! People from Singapore, you are missing out A LOT!
