5 Curious Facts About The Titanic

Top 5 List November 30, 2017


5 Curious Facts About The Titanic. These facts aren’t any of the weird myths that are going around about the sinking. They are just interesting and proven facts that put the sinking in a different perspective and that makes you realize how unlucky the entire situation was.


5. The Captain
It was discovered in 2012 that Captain Edward Smith actually failed his navigation exam his first time round before passing it in 1888. Although he made many blunders, such as driving the ship too fast, and ignoring warnings of icebergs, his final act was to bravely go down with the ship, allowing many of his passengers to escape safely.

4. The Moon Theory

For the past 103 years, scientists have surmised many theories as to what caused the Titanic to crash into those icebergs. Astronomer Donald Olson has advanced the theory that the position of the moon may have had something to do with it. The full moon caused strong tides, which made the ship go faster. Plus the lunar approach was the closest the moon had been to earth in over 1,000 years, which may have made it difficult to navigate.

3. Futility

It could just be a major coincidence, but 14 years before the Titanic set sail for New York City, Morgan Robertson wrote a novel called Futility. His book chronicles the fictitious Titan, a ship that its makers deemed “unsinkable.” However disaster strikes when The Titan collides with an iceberg and the ship sinks, killing many of its passengers. More people might have survived had there been enough lifeboats. Sound familiar?

2. Optical Illusions

Despite seemingly perfect weather on that fateful night, it was the weather that ultimately doomed The Titanic. As it sank, Captain Smith sent out distress signals by shooting flare rockets up into the sky. However, a process known in science as “thermal inversions” where warm and cold airs collide, made light reflect weirdly against the night sky. This caused ships in the area to misinterpret distress signals as mirages. In fact, historians have found records of several ships documenting mirages on that very night.

1. William McMaster Murdoch

First Officer William McMaster Murdoch ordered the ship to turn, but it was too large to do so in time. It has been suggested that the ship would not have sunk if it hit the iceberg head-on… Murdoch went down with the ship.

Several of the top executives there being public members of the Nazi Party. In fact, when German Coca-Cola plants could no longer acquire ingredients to make Coke, they instead created Fanta just for Germany.

4. This can’t be good!

Cheers!

3. It started as a Nerve Tonic

After being wounded in the Civil War, Colonel John Pemberton became addicted to morphine, and sought a safe substitute to the opiate. The first Coca-Cola recipe was then formulated at a drugstore in Columbus, Georgia as a coca wine. In 1885, the substance was registered as a nerve tonic, and the following year, Coca-Cola was sold as medicine that could supposedly cure several diseases, including morphine addiction, neurasthenia, dyspepsia, headaches, and impotence.

2. This can’t be good either

In 2003, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) of New Delhi announced that water used by Coca-Cola in the production of their beverages contained toxic pesticides that could cause cancer and the breakdown of the immune system. More specifically, Coca-Cola’s beverages were found to contain thirty times the amount of pesticide permitted under EU regulations.

1. Mexico all the way

Mexicans LOVE their Coke! They drink more coke products than the USA, UK and France combined! More than 2 glasses a day on average. Or maybe, just maybe, the people in Mexico have known about all the cleaning purposes that Coca-Cola can be used for, for a while… These researches are based on sales after all! 😉

George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States, was mocked endlessly for his perceived lack of intelligence throughout his two terms in the White House.

2. Obama Cigarette

5. Tomato fights

5 Frightening Extinct Flying Reptiles

Top 5 List July 27, 2015

5 Frightening Extinct Flying Reptiles

5 Frightening Extinct Flying Reptiles. The flying reptiles must have been extremely scary and frightening. They look dangerous and powerful!

5. Dimorphodon

They were first discovered in the 19th century in England in what is known as the Jurassic Coast. While scientists aren’t entirely sure of their exact diets, it is believed that they ate insects, fish and probably small animals. In addition to being able to fly, they could also climb really well, making them very competent hunters. They had an adult body length of 3.3 ft long, with a 4.6 ft wingspan.

4. Pterodactyl

Most associated with the Jurassic era, these creatures feasted on fish and small animals. Armed with rows and rows of sharp teeth, pterodactyls would swoop out of the sky and catch unsuspecting prey either from the water or of the ground. Despite a relatively small wingspan of around five feet, they are believed to have been highly competent and versatile hunters.

3. Quetzalcoatlus

In all likelihood, they were the largest creatures to ever roam the sky. With a wingspan of around 30 feet and weighing over 400 pounds, these massive creatures ruled the skies of present day North America. Scientists are certain that they stalked their prey, and their size and speed made escape very difficult.

2. Ikrandraco

It wasn’t until 2014 that these extinct reptiles were discovered. Due their resemblance they were named after the Ikran in Avatar. About 120 million years ago, they called present-day China their home. They had expandable throats, which likely allowed them to feed on large fish. They also had a ton of sharp teeth and could trap their prey in their jaws.

1. Petranodon

These massive flying reptiles are some of the biggest to have ever existed. Scientists believe their wingspans reached over 20 feet long. They subsisted off of eating fish, presumably by swooping down towards the water and catching them in their jaws. Scientists also think that they were capable of taking off from the water’s surface, which indicates they were extremely strong and agile!

Top 5 Craziest Sports

Top 5 List July 13, 2015

top 5 craziest games

Top 5 Craziest Sports. The sports in this list are crazy alright! Chess Boxing is our favorite sport but the other sports are weird and crazy as well!

5. Wife Carrying

Wife carrying is a sport in which male competitors race each other while carrying a female teammate. The main event is held annually in Finland and requires a man to negotiate a 253.5 meter course while carrying their wife on their back. The course includes various surfaces and getting through dry land and water based obstacles. The prize to the winner is a mobile phone AND more importantly(!), they also win their wife’s weight in beer.

4. Buzkashi

Literally meaning “goat dragging” in Persian, Buzkashi is the national sport of Afghanistan. Players are on horseback and the main objective of Buzkashi is to drag a goat carcass across the opposing teams goal line. A calf carcass can also be used. Traditionally, games could last days and were played with limited rules. Its modernization, of sorts…, has seen a limited match time with stricter rules.

3. Chess Boxing

For the pugilist with brains to back up their brawn, look no further than Chess Boxing! Originally intended as a piece of performance art, it quickly gained widespread popularity. The sport is exactly what it sounds like, with competitors alternating between a round of chess and a round of boxing. Starting with four minutes of chess followed by two minutes of boxing, matches last eleven rounds or until someone is knocked out or has their opponent in checkmate.

2. Underwater Hockey

Dating back to 1954, Underwater Hockey is a rudimentary form of hockey played at the bottom of a pool. Two teams of six players each attempt to guide a puck into the opposing team’s goal using a small banana shaped stick. Players are continually subbed in and out as one would imagine because of the possibility of drowning. Despite having limited spectator appeal, The Underwater World Hockey Championships have taken place every two years since 1980.

1. Kabaddi

Adults don’t usually play tag, but when you’re competing in the ancient Indian sport of Kabaddi, that’s what you’re doing. Two teams of seven players stand on opposite sides of a field and take turns sending a raider into opposing territory. The raider attempts to tag the defenders who have their arms linked and are trying to stop the raider from returning to his side. Also the raider has to chant Kabaddi the whole time without letting out a breath… KABADDI!!

5 Bizarre Underwater Creatures

Top 5 List June 23, 2015


5 Bizarre Underwater Creatures. The underwater world is bizarre and home to some crazy, awesome, bizarre looking creatures. These 5 animals stood out to us!

5. Pyura Chilensis

The Pyura Chilensis basically resembles a mass of organs that live inside a rock. It survives by sucking in seawater and filtering out microorganisms. Although born male, it becomes hermaphroditic during puberty and if left alone mates through self fertilization. Considered a delicacy in South America where it is mostly found, its flavor is described as tasting like iodine.

4. Sea Pig

Scotoplanes, commonly known as a sea pig, aren’t actually underwater swine but a type of sea cucumber that lives on the ocean floor at depths of 2 to 4 miles. Sea Pigs have large tube feet, which look like legs that inflate and deflate to help move them along the ocean floor. These appendages along with their pink, plump and oval shaped body give them their nickname.

3. Giant Salamander

The largest living amphibian known today, the giant salamander can grow upwards of four and half feet in length, with the Chinese species reaching just under six feet in length. Their large folds of skin along the flanks of the animal give them their bizarre appearance. Giant salamanders have poor eyesight, instead relying on sensory nodes which detect minute changes in water pressure. This allows them to ambush their prey lurking on river bottoms at night.

2. Lamprey

Characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth, lampreys are a jawless fish found in most temperate regions except for Africa. Resembling eels, a minority of lamprey are parasitic, latching onto other fish to suck their blood. Non-parasitic lampreys do not feed as adults; the live on reserves acquired when they were larvae. Strangely, they are considered a delicacy in some parts of Europe.

1. Goblin Shark

The most bizarre underwater creature is none other than the extremely rare Goblin Shark. It has a distinctive profile with a flat, elongated snout and protrusible jaws containing sharp, nail like teeth. Despite its forceful look, the goblin shark poses no threat to humans because of the depths in the ocean it lives in. The goblin shark is so rare in fact, that it is considered a living fossil. It is the only living species of the 125 million(!) year old Mitsukurinidae family.
