Around the world, there are numerous information that are not only fun but interesting yet some are unknown to a wide populace. If you are here for the thrills, this post will give you experiences to some great realities about the world which you thought you had no intrigue for, except for now, you will soon realize you do.
We all know that on the solar system, the earth is the third nearest planet to the sun. Or on the other hand you don’t? It’s no surprise that we have such an excess of bursting and burning sunlight hitting us here.
If we were probably in Uranus, somewhat further from the sun, perhaps the sunrays would have been more tolerant. However, too bad, we are stuck as humans on planet earth.
On earth, another popular knowledge is that there are Seven (7) continents in the world. I’m certain that isn’t unfamiliar to you to you either. If you don’t mind me listing;
Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia/Oceania, Europe, North America, and South America. But in recent time, some researchers are merging Europe and Asia because they occupy the same landmass.
In contrast to different planets, no genuine chronicled information can be found on the individual or gathering that named our world ‘EARTH’. Who gave the planet a name? The term Earth comes from Early English and High Germanic. It would interest you to know that other planets have their names derived from Greek gods and goddesses except our dear old EARTH.
Do you celebrate the earth’s birthday? The initial step is to realize how old the earth is. Sit tight for it; as indicated by research, give or take, researchers think the earth is around fifty million years (50,000,000). Wow, that’s a ton.
Well according to Wikipedia, Earth Day is an annual event celebrated around the world on April 22 to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970. It is more similar to a natural mindfulness, not a genuine birthday like inclination for our beloved earth yet I surmise we can in any case manage with it.
It would likewise intrigue you to realize that our wonderful earth houses billion heaps of viruses and if by chance allocated to everybody on earth, it would go round even still be excess.
Interesting right, the oceans are not even left out. Did you know that with every rotation that the earth completes the Pacific Ocean decreases?
When asked what the tallest mountain in the world is, it is typical to get the Mount Everest answer. What if I told you there is another. This mountain supersedes Mt Everest from its base but not at sea level. Mount Mauna Kea. So typically if you measure the mountains beyond what you see, that is by their depth, Mt. Mauna Kea wins but on eye level, Mt Everest is the champion.
Moving forward from the depths of these mountains, and you intend having a closer glimpse at the moon, the answer is Mt Chimborazo. It is the closest mountain to the moon.
Enough with the mountains, how about we talk Time. There are diverse time regions everywhere on the world right. In any case, did you realize that there are countries who utilize additional time regions? In Russia for instance, a part of the country can encounter morning while another part is at night. The wonders of nature, always fascinating.
Egypt has prided itself with its glorious ancient pyramids and you presumably think it has the most in the world. A stunner, the country with the most ancient pyramids is Sudan, a part of the only Continent to span the through all four hemisphere, Africa.
Africa, home to the Sahara desert, with hot temperatures and dry terrains. A minimal spot to consider snowfall. However, did you know that there have been records of snow on the dry African land? Though not frequent but it happens.
Every year, our beloved Africa moves an inch and so does other continent too.
On an end note, my mother land Nigeria is the most populous country in Africa and Algeria is the largest country in Africa. Don’t get it twisted.
