You may feel a little smaller after this
We have so much technology to teach us everything about the world we’re living in and the universe we’re living in, yet there’s a lot that we just don’t know about yet. The stuff that we do know can be so frightening that governments and world leaders don’t tell their citizens about it lest a panic might ignite.
Well… We’re letting the cat out of the bag with these true, unsettling facts.
If you are a certain distance from a nuclear explosion, you won’t be killed immediately but instead, you’ll get third degree burns throughout your entire body. This kills your nerves so fast that it’s completely painless. (geogoose)
I test schools’ water for lead. Millions of children across the United States, many people here included, are being exposed to absurdly high levels of lead. This leads to behavior and learning problems, lower IQ, hyperactivity, slowed growth, hearing problems, and anemia. If not for yourself, for the sake of your children, please use filters at home.

The entire Universe outside our galaxy could have completely disappeared over 20,000 years ago and we still wouldn’t know it yet. Our view of the Universe is actually what it looked like anywhere from thousands to Billions of years ago -with no way to see what it actually looks like “right now.”
Imagine if you looked out your front window and saw your yard as it was 6 months ago, neighbors house across the street a year ago, and houses a block or two away as they were several years ago. Also off in the distance you see the glaciers from the last ice age. That’s what it’s like looking out at the Universe. (rclatter)
