Recommended Posts

I'm on another information studying binge, so give me your cool or interesting facts!

It can be about anything, from your special interests to obscure information not many people know.

I just..really like facts lol

The region where my mother was born, they believed that when a snake got really old, it will crawl into a hole shed it's skin and grow a pair of wings. Then it will fly to the sky where it becomes an omen of bad weather. That is their explanation for the ring at the edge of a big storm. She grew up in a town with little to no education and in a time where women weren't allowed to go to school. So a lot of what she tells me is superstition.

That's really cool, thanks for sharing! I love mythology- I believe superstitions always have some sort of truth in them, no matter how absurd, and are an important part of every cuture

Prob no one out there finds this interesting but me.

 

2 things.

 

 

Despite me not being the 'biggest' book 2 fan (I literally dislike it), when chapter 8 came out, a Piggy YouTuber found out a secret message in the map. Basically, there was a radio in the map playing a little children's song (pretty sure the file was named Tape C) and a fan managed to somehow get the full song with voices. He did some decoding with some numbers and the alphabet, reversing and got a few texts.

 

''Zizzy will never speak

 

The Insolence

 

Calls to you

 

Help Me

 

Run

 

Her Hand Gone

 

Smile for him''

 

Though some disagree and say it doesn't have anything to do with Zizzy but with Zee. I disagree.

 

 

 

Next one is in Book 1, a skin actually screams 'no' in his jumpscare. Some actually notice this about other skins, like for me I saw how the skin 'Elly' has a jumpscare kinda sounding like 'stop.' If you understand what I mean.

 

Non-piggy fans just staring at me confused.

The way we measure distances to galaxies is interesting.

 

When a white dwarf orbits another star, it tends to eat matter off of it. The gases just keep collecting and collecting on the surface until finally, the white dwarf burps. This causes a "mini" supernova. As it turns out, all these supernovae reach the exact same critical point, and thus release exactly the same amount of light each time, with the exact same electromagnetic spectrum. This is called a Type 1A supernova. These occur in a cyclic pattern as the white dwarf eats more matter and the process repeats again. Briefly, the light can outshine the galaxy, so it's detectable.

 

The fact that these are extremely regular, happen over and over again, release the same spectrum of light, and most importantly, are always exactly as bright as any other Type 1A supernova, makes it an extremely good metric for measuring distance using the inverse square law. (If something is 1 unit away from you, and something is placed n units away from you, it is 1/n² times as bright).

 

So by knowing how bright Type 1A supernova are with known distances in our own galaxy, we now just need to see how bright they are in other galaxies, and bam, suddenly we know how far away they are!

"Before we start testing today, let's have our mandatory minute of silence in honor of Earth's governing body, the Sentient Cloud. [throat clear] Starting now. [a pause] [coughing] Good, right. All hail the sentient cloud. Begin testing."

Honeybees can communicate details about flowers by "dancing." Depending upon how they wiggle, they can communicate the distance, direction, and quality of different flowers to the rest of the hive.

Yes, i know and it is quite interesting, isn't it? The ways animals communicate are soo cool

heh, I really need to stop fanboying over every tidbit of info lol

Fun facts about human biology bc im a nerd!

 

First of all, I gotta give context. Most animals take a good hundred million years to really change, and through this process their phsyical traits become very refined and useful depending on their enviornment. Humans are not most animals. They evolved to walk upright within just a million and a half years, and became modern humans in 6 million years, which is a really small amount of time. This has resulted in a ton of funny but also really inconvenient evolutionary quirks.

 

First of all, the bones. At a first glance our bones don't seem very special, but if you really look at the structure you will notice that it's a Disaster. The worst offender is the feet, which still have many entirely useless bones and muscles left over from their tree-climbing days. If you've ever got any kind of nasty foot injury, chances are it only happened because the foot is way too fragile and complex. the knees are another nasty area, being incredibly easy to break despite being some of the most important parts of the body. The spine also is built in a way that leaves too much room for dumb injuries.

 

Another interesting area is the brain. Apparently, it's easier to make more brain matter than to reprogram old brain matter, so our brain has layers. The first layer, the lizard brain, contains incredibly basic survival instincts and emotions. The monkey brain is responsible for more complex emotions, basic memory, doing tasks, and more complex instincts. Finally, the human brain holds complex memory, logic, empathy, and other important traits. However, this has it's pitfalls. First of all, none of the three layers have any kind of failsafe to deal with the existential dread that comes with intelligence. Secondly, the lizard & monkey brain constantly contradict the human brain's logical thought, which makes it much less useful than it could be. The worst flaw is probably the human brain's want to expand & grow civilization quickly and greatly. Although this would be beneficial when there was less humans, since there was alot of land to take, now that humans have taken over the whole world it just means they mostly fight against eachother and refuse to change harmful practices in the name of efficiency.

 

A few mischellanous things: Tons of instincts are very easily hijacked. For instance, all noises of a certain frequency will make the monkey brain feel a need to comfort, or become agitated. This is because that frequency is the frequency babies make while crying. However, it's more commonly and effectively used by cats when they meow. Also, we feel an incredible urge to take care of anything that looks remotely like a human baby, which even more animals take advantage of.

 

Every single human on earth could easily pick up several tons, but our monkey brain prevents us because it's just a bad idea unless there's serious shit happening.

 

There is 15 (minimum) kinds of seratonin. that's just the ones we know of, and there's subtypes.

MiniToon made Piggy as a joke, at the time those "survive the killer" games were super popular. He specifically found a 'Peppa pig' one. He found it hilarious, how a game with a 2D drawing chasing people received so much attention. So he decided to make a game like this, but with 3D models and more effort, for him and his friends to play. Ended up making the game public, and the game received 1 billion visits in two months.

Petrol has a freezing point of approx -60 degrees Celsius (-76 degrees Fahrenheit). Diesel has an even lower freezing point. A Diesel-like mixture called SAB (Special Antarctic Blend) is used in well... you guessed it - the Antarctic.

However just because it has such a low freezing point doesn't mean general low temps will not have an effect. These liquids have a gel point and pour point, at which will affect the performance of the machine it's fueling.

Daily Piggy fact cause I'm a Piggy nerd, from the toon man himself (MiniToon).

 

Ahoy, everyone! here's a 'Fun Piggy Fact': Chapter 3 was actually built before Chapter 2! IK3As builds maps way too well and way too fast. Should've seen how fast she built Chapter 9-
