Random Fun Facts – Ohh! Fancy That!

  • A pallet of diet coke weighs significantly less (300 lbs) than a pallet of regular coke. Why? Because of the lack of sugar.
  • You have capillaries in your body that are so tiny, red blood cells have to pass through them in a single file line.
  • In ancient China, just to be in the presence of a female member of Royalty, a male worker had to be castrated first. This was to ensure the blood lines were never diluted.
  • Toddlers are not able to jump until their kneecaps form. Yep, you heard that right, small children don’t have kneecaps.
  • Tibetan monks are able to survive in extremely low temperatures without any side effects. Told you these were random fun facts!
