    Ever hear something that literally blows your mind?

    A couple days back I was showing a colleague a gift that I had brought home from India for my brother (an ornamental elephant made of stone, a large one and inside there is a smaller elephant, visible from the outside). Anyway I showed her it and it made her remember a cool fact. I wonder how many other people already know this?

    You were once inside your grandmother's womb. Your mother's foetus was obviously in there containing all the eggs, one of which, was you. Cool right ?? My mind was blown. 🤯

    What fact has blown you away ?

    The mitochondria organelles in our cells have their own DNA and replicate themselves and are present in human egg cells before we even develop as fetuses, which means their DNA doesn't get mixed with our father's DNA, so it gets passed down in its exact form from our mothers to us. Because of this, our mitochondrial DNA can trace us all the way back to the mitochondria of the very first female human on Earth.

    For reference: (Start at 9:00 for that fun fact... But the whole video is pretty interesting)

    Oh boy. Thank you ! :# :D

    A mad scientist in Iceland had recently bread sheep containing spider DNA...

    He was able to extract spider webs from the goats milk that can be used to make high tensile strength material

    I find it bind blowing the level of deception a human being is capable of.

    Not only to others but also self deception we can be pretty neat at lying to ourselves as well ! We seem to be born with an innate ability to lie. Or is it just an inborn survival technique/survival tactic etc.
