Today I Learned... More Useless Trivia!

Does anyone else feel like their head is full of useless trivia? Share your weird and random facts here!

 

Newborn babies will cry, like all the time, but they won't actually produce tears. Our tear ducts don't start working until we're about two months old. Speaking of tears, you can' t cry properly in space either due to zero gravity. The water will just sort of leak out of your eye and start floating around. BOOM!

Re: Today I Learned... More Useless Trivia!

I have a lot of dog-related trivia:

 

  • Weimeraner puppies are born with a tiger-stripe pattern on their fur
  • Dalmatian puppies are born all white (the spots grow in after about 3 weeks)
  • West Highland White Terriers' tails are so strong that you can actually hold them up by the tail (don't this for too long though!)
  • Chow Chows and Shar-pei's are the only breeds to have blue tongues
  • White dogs tend to be prone to deafness (especially if they also have blue eyes)

Just to trip you all out, you technically aren't touching anything. The force of resistance is what you can feel.

@stonepixie I swear I got like ten times more fidgety when I read that.  Now I can't keep my hands still! Smiley Very Happy

@FootyFan26 What? You have just blown my mind!

 

High heels were first worn by men but they fell out of favour for men once women began wearing them.

You people come up with weird stuff sometimes and I believe high heels were worn so people didn't have to step on the ground as there wasn't really a sewerage system.

The word 'denim' is actually a corruption of 'serge de Nimes' (serge from Nimes). Serge is a type of fabric and Nimes is a city in France
