Top 5 random facts

Hi guys!

I was watching deleted scenes from Star Wars:The Force Awakens and I suddenly became inspired to do a top 5 random facts. Am I the only person who does that kinda thing? Probably.

So me being me I’ve looked up 5 random facts. This time the facts have questions. I put the questions there just in case I couldn’t make the fact make sense without the question if you get what I mean.

 Here are my top 5 random facts:

How fast is a lightning bolt?

An average lightning bolt moves at approximately 224,000 mph (3,700 miles per second). However, you see the light from lightning and that travels at the speed of light and the speed of light travels at about 670 million mph (186,000 miles per second).

How many different kinds of animals are there in the world?

At the moment scientists have named and classified over 1 and a half million animals. However, many scientists believe that there may be 2 million to 50 million different kinds of animals alive today.

Who has held their breath the longest?

Tom Sietas is a German free diver and in 2012 he held his breath underwater for 22 minutes and 22 seconds. The previous Guinness record was by a guy called Dane Stig Severinsen. He held his breath for 22 minutes.

What mammals can fly?

The only mammal that can fly is the bat. However, the “flying squirrel” and the gliding opossum can both glide for short distances.

Can camels swim in water?

Even though they are described as the “ship of the desert” because of their ability to walk in the very hot sand all day for long amounts of time without any food or drink they cannot swim in water. However, they can float.


They were my top 5 random facts. Hopefully you learnt something from this quick little post. I’m sorry it’s not as long as my other ones but I will hopefully be able to do another post sometime today for you.
